Mute Angst Envy formed in 1987 in San Jose, California. The early period of the band culminated in the release of the "Trust" EP (1990 Epithet Records). The "Trust" EP featured five songs, including the hit single "Creep". This album was a favorite on the play lists of many college radio stations across the United States. In 1992, Live 105 (KITS San Francisco) rated "Creep" at number 160 of the top 300 classic modern rock songs of all time.

In 1992 [r=652014] was released on [l=21st Circuitry]. This album charted on college stations around the country and was distributed internationally. Mute Angst Envy supported this album with many headlining shows, as well as supporting touring acts such as Clan of Xymox and Wolfgang Press.

In 1995, the band took a hiatus, while working on other projects. Keith started LuxoCrush, and was later joined by Paul. Both Keith and Paul also began playing with Lisa Dewey & the Lotus Life (Bella Union), and were priviledged to work with Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins, who both produced and played on the LDLL "Busk" CD!

In 2004, Mute Angst Envy started playing and recording again. The new CD "South 11th Street" is named after the location of the KWR studios, where the album was recorded.
