Come were formed in Boston in 1990 by Thalia Zedek (vocals, guitar) (ex Uzi, Live Skull), Chris Brokaw (guitar, vocals) (ex Codeine) Arthur Johnson (drums) (Bar-B-Q Killers,) and Sean O'Brien (bass) (Kilkenny Cats and Fashion Battery).

Come released the 12-inch single "Car" on Sub Pop in 1991. The song, a seven-minute epic in the blues-noir style of The Birthday Party and These Immortal Souls, encapsulated what was to become Come's trademark style: dark, intense and lengthy songs marked by Zedek's emotional and distressed vocals, abrupt rhythms, and the tension-filled guitar interplay between Zedek and Brokaw, both extraordinarily accomplished guitarists.
