LOZENGE formed in Houston, Texas, in 1992, disbanded in 1994, and regrouped in Chicago in 1996. John Robbins, who played electric viola and tenor saxophone, was a member from that point until late 2000, when he left an empty space in the world by deciding not to be alive anymore. The very tall Boris Hauf, who lives in Berlin, currently saxophones with the band when everyone is in the same place at the same time. Kyle moved to San Francisco in late 2003 and Kurt has since relocated to Austin. Philip and Mark remain in Chicago, awaiting a sign.
