AXMINSTER sunk its fangs into the Boston music scene back in the early 80's, playing with an unapologetic allegiance to bands like Aerosmith, Sweet, Deep Purple and Montrose. The band was formed in Newton, Massachusetts in the winter of 1983 by neighborhood friends Steve Sera, (Guitars and Vocals) Jeff Callan (Bass Guitar) and Mike Lamm (Drums and Vocals). Mike Mosca joined a few months later as the 2nd guitar player. So how did we get the name Axminster? When searching for a band name, which was taking forever...We actually found the words AXMINSTER on the label on the backside of an old carpet. We were soundproofing our rehearsal space and our bass player’s dad worked for a carpet distribution company and gave us a bunch of carpet pieces that we hung up on the walls to deaden the sound. The name sounded cool at the time, hey we were Teenagers! - and a little “rugged” (sorry for the pun). We didn't know it was a town in England, or big carpet manufacturer but found out many years later, that it was... no internet and no computers back in the day!! For those of you who knew us back then, and are old enough to remember...we ""axed"" the ""Molly"" out of the name shortly thereafter. Thanks to the Internet, you can see Axminster is a beautiful place with gorgeous rolling hills in the southern part of the UK about 35 miles south of London.
