Innovators of the then-emerging 'sadcore' movement in indie rock in the 1990s, Chokebore are responsible for at least two indie rock masterpieces. The eclectic rock group consisted of guitarist Jonathan Kroll, drummer Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo, vocalist Troy von Balthazar and bassist James Kroll. They formed in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA in the early '90s, where they were known as Dana Lynn. In 1992 the band moved to L.A. in hopes of getting better gigs, and took on the Chokebore name.
