Audio Learning Center

Audio Learning Center was an American rock band from Portland, Oregon. In the early 1990s, Christopher Brady and Steven Birch became friends through mutual connections in the burgeoning northwest music scene. Both were in Oregon bands to sign to Seattle rock heavyweight Sub Pop Records. Playing numerous shows together throughout the Northwest United States, they became a two-man mutual admiration society. After Sprinkler broke up in early 1994, they didn't see each other all that but Birch remained a huge Pond fan. Fast-forward to fall 1998: After a brilliant third record on a confused label and the Pond boys decided to call it a day. At the same time, Birch had reached complete burnout from a grueling year of non-stop touring with Everclear; the two had long talked about playing music together, but it was only now that the time seemed right. Initial rehearsals included Pond's David Triebwasser on drums; when Triebwasser decided to move away from Portland, a mutual friend introduced Brady and Birch to drummer Paul Johnson.

Johnson, a music major in college, had played in numerous bands, but was looking for something bigger and more challenging—one rehearsal was all it took to know that his dynamic playing would be a perfect fit. An early demo found its way to the ears of Rich Egan, the owner of Vagrant, he signed the outfit, releasing debut, Friendships Often Fade Away, in 2002, it was produced by Adam Kasper. In 2004, they released Cope Park, produced by Joe Chiccarelli; the band amicably parted ways soon after that album's release.

List of U.S. states and territories by historical population

This is a list of U. S. states and territories by historical population, as enumerated every decade by the United States Census. As required by the United States Constitution, a census has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. Although the decennial census collects a variety of information that used in demographic studies and other enterprises, the purpose of the census as stated in the Constitution is to produce an "actual enumeration" of the number of persons in the states in order to calculate their Congressional apportionment; as the United States has grown in area and population, new states have been formed out of U. S. territories or the division of existing states. The population figures provided. Shaded areas of the tables indicate census years when a territory or the part of another state had not yet been admitted as a new state; as of 2019, 6 regions of the U. S. remain non-states.
