Eric's Trip originally hail from Moncton, New Brunswick, and started in June 1990 when Claytor, White, Thompson and Ed Vaughan (drums) began jamming in the basement. They managed to land some area shows, but Vaughan dropped out in November 1991.

Gaudet was borrowed from a band called The Purple Knights to fill in and never left.

Eric's Trip wereand were the first Canadian act to sign with Sub Pop Records following the post-Nirvana grunge explosion even thought their style was nothing like the Seattle scene it was now being affiliated with.

Over the years members of Erics Trip have released material in various other incarnations: ELEVATOR TO HELL (Rick White and friends), BROKEN GIRL (Julie Doiron Claytor and family), MOON SOCKET (Chris Thompson) and PURPLE KNIGHT (Mark Gaudet).
