Every Other Country started in late 2010 by Ryan Scott and Barny Lanman out of a desire for a serious working band and to have fun…The pair bonded over a geeky love for synthesizers and began cranking out the tunes. After a first show in Lowell, MA there was an explosion of shows and dancing in their wake.
Later in the year Barny Lanman left to focus on his own work. There were a few shows that saw EOC in a solo format, but the void was quickly filled by Joe Berthiaume, better known as Outsider Joe, who happened to be a close friend of EOC, and frequently played gigs with the duo.
After a bit of re-tooling the old songs to better match Joe’s equipment and lots of practice, the duo took off out the gate with a string of shows and a new recording, Syntheseizure.
