Sheavy formed in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in 1993, and originally performed under the name Green
Machine. In 1994, the band discovered there was another band in the United States with the same name, so a decision was
made to rename the band Sheavy. The band's repertoire originally consisted of a sampling of Kyuss covers and an assortment of
originals that would eventually make their way onto the Reproduction E.P., Slaves To Fashion, and ultimately Blue Sky Mind. A
three-song 7" vinyl record was recorded in early 1995 at Jolly Roger Studios in St. John's. The band regularly performed in and
around St. John's for the first few years at small clubs and venues such as The Loft, Sam Shades; Junctions and the LSPU Hall.
