Rex is an American Indie rock band formed in 1994 (though an early version of the band was formed in 1991). Rex was considered one of the most important and influential slowcore bands[1][2] and released three albums and one EP on Southern Records, as well as a collaboration with Red Red Meat (under the name Loftus) on Perishable Records. Members included Doug Scharin (who was also a member of Codeine, HiM, and June of 44), Curtis Harvey (Pullman), and Phil Spirito (Orso). The album is noted as one of Lucan, Dublin's native Gav Quinn's all time favourite albums. He was noted as saying he loved the sombre atmosphere, the understated, pateient beauty, delicate basslines and Harvey's vocals.
