Show #144: Stealing Volume

You know, I suppose every music scene has these things, but it's really cool to be able to throw terms like "super-group" around. The most obvious usage of the term being a band made up of members who were already famous for previous bands or endeavors.  It's somewhat debated whether Crosby Stills and Nash or Cream were the first of these, though I have reservations about calling The Graham Bond Oraginisation "famous."  In Indianapolis, we've had bands such as Gentleman Caller, The New Guilt, Kidd Comet's recent lineup, and my personal favorite, The Big Legumes.  Okay, the last one may be a stretch.  I'm not sure that Johnny Socko was quite as famous as CA3 was, I'll have to take a survey.

This episode features what I would term super-group in that it is something of a punk band whose members, while having been involved with punk at some point, are also known as versatile players in other genres as well, having cut their proverbial teeth in bands like The Lickers, The Dockers, 19Cark25, Extra Blue Kind, State, Dirty Little Secrets, The Jabs, The Giggies, and of course ... erm ... Sapphyre.  This of course makes the six degrees of separation game a bit narrower when playing with all local musicians, and while it doesn't make me Kevin Bacon, I now have strong argument for being Stephen Furst.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
