Faraquet Anthology 1997-98 on LP

Faraquet began as a side project featuring Smart Went Crazy members Devin O'Campo and Jeff Boswell along with Devin's high school friend, Chad Molter, who had recently relocated to D.C. from Los Angeles. When SWC fell apart, Faraquet stepped up as a full-time band and started playing more shows, releasing a couple of singles as well as appearing on a split CD with Akarso, a band from Milwaukee.

After seeing Faraquet a few times around town, Fugazi invited them to do some shows on a short tour through the south. Shortly after returning from that trip, the band recorded with J. Robbins at Inner Ear Studio and released The View from This Tower in November of 2000. After a few more brief tours, Faraquet decided to call it quits in 2001.

In the summer of 2007 the members of Faraquet announced plans to re-issue the songs they had recorded for various singles and split releases onto a compilation LP. This album, Anthology 1997-98, was issued in July 2008. Working on this project rekindled the band's interest in playing songs, so they reunited briefly for a Brazilian tour and for a show in Washington, D.C.

Due to their non-traditional time signatures and off-kilter arrangements the band was often described as "math-rock" – a description they never warmed up to. Faraquet felt more aligned with the Minutemen and both the passion of their live performance and their advanced sense of melody set them well above and apart from the basement scientist crowd.
