Silversun Pickups

  • Silversun Pickups is an American Alternative Rock band from Los Angeles, California, comprising Brian Aubert (lead vocals, guitar), Nikki Monninger (bass, vocals), Christopher Guanlao (drums) and Joe Lester (keyboards)
  • The band members are friends who had played together previously or in mutual friends' bands
  • They got their start in many of the most important L.A. clubs, most often at Silverlake Lounge or nearby Spaceland, and began to draw a strong following upon the release of the Pikul EP
  • Pikul was the nickname of a friend of the band who died in 2001, so the EP was named in memory of him
  • He also designed guitar picks, one of which bassist Nikki Monninger contributed to a recent auction for charity
  • According to interviews with the band, they started out as a four person act around 2000, with Brian on lead guitar, Nikki on bass, and Brian's then girlfriend on drums, and Nikki's then boyfriend on second guitar
  • They were originally called A Couple Of Couples to reflect the nature of their relationships
