Gone is an instrumental trio put together in 1986 by guitarist Greg Ginn
. The group was originally rounded out by Andrew Weiss
(bass) and Sim Cain
(drums). After recording 2 albums and touring heavily, Ginn disbanded the group in 1987 to concentrate on running SST Records
. Weiss and Cain would soon join the Rollins Band
. In the early 1990s, Ginn revived the group with a new rhythm section and recorded several more albums before going on haitus in 1998 (coinciding with the start of a long period of hibernation for SST Records). Ginn revived the Gone name again in 2008, this time with himself handling both the guitar and bass duties and, for the first time, featuring vocals (provided by H.R.
