Remy Zero is a Los Angeles based alternative rock band made up of Cinjun Tate (vocals, guitar), Shelby Tate (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Gregory Slay (drums), Cedric Lemoyne (bass), and Jeffrey Cain (guitar).
Before recording any full length albums, Radiohead found their demo tape and invited them to be part of the US tour for The Bends. After that, they moved from Birmingham, Alabama to Los Angeles, California to record their first album. Several band mates suffered from substance abuse and homelessness after moving from Alabama.
Their first album, self-titled, drew from these experiences and received little recognition or sales. The subsequent album Villa Elaine caused them to be praised as "the next big thing". Villa Elaine was recorded when the band was living in an apartment of the same name in Hollywood. Remy Zero's third album The Golden Hum was also received well. A 50 second version of the song "Save Me" from The Golden Hum was used as the theme song for WB's Smallville. Remy Zero's music has also been on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic radio show. Remy Zero's song "Shattered" was used in the films Crazy/Beautiful and Suicide Kings. "Fair" from Villa Elaine was used in the film Garden State, and most recently "Prophecy" has been featured in The Last Kiss.
Remy Zero broke up after making The Golden Hum and many of its members have joined new bands. Shelby and Cinjun Tate have created Spartan Fidelity, Jeffrey Cain has joined Isidore, Cedric Lemoyne toured with Alanis Morisette's band, and Gregory Slay has joined Sleepwell.
Remy Zero appeared to toy with the idea of reforming in Summer 2006, announcing a possible reunion on their Myspace page - however this has been removed and now reads "We took a break in 2003. We thought momentarily that we might start making music again, but now... who knows".
