Daisy Spot

Pop band from Sacramento, CA.

Active 1992 to 2006



Originally a duo, the bands first gained popularity in the local club circuit in 1992, then progressed to northwest tours with the likes of Cake, with a rotating cast of characters filling in the rhythm section. After repeated run-ins with the law and a number of other desperate misadventures, Mike spent a year and a half in an East Bay rehabilitation program and returned to Sacramento clean, sober and ready to rededicate himself to his music.

Shortly afterward, Daisy Spot was reborn as a quartet and started work on their self titled, debut album in the fall of 2003 with producer/engineer Dana Gumbiner and it was finally released in the fall of 2005.

Mike Farrell then joined Persephone's Bees.
