CIVILIAN DEATH MACHINE (C.D.M.) a Rock/Grunge/Metal band from Vancouver, BC, Canada was formed in the Summer of 1987 by founding member, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Meredith Rollo.
The band played together from 1987, for a little over 4 1/2 years and eventually called it quits in early 1992 -at a time when the "Seattle Revolution" was breaking ground throughout the land and into mainstream radio. Never reaching any fame didn't bother the band members, as music gave way to family obligations and commitments.
