You know, you spend 20+ years in the music scene, you think you know how it is and what's going on, then some 20-something-year-old upstart kids essentially call you an old fart and show you an entire subculture that you were barely aware even existed.
Somehow, I always knew I'd be the old fart one day. Thanks for the education guys!
Kurt Rambis is one of the leading bands in Indy's basement/underground/DIY scene, which combines the grass-roots work ethic of the Indie scene, combined with the angst and wit of the 70's punk scene, and packages it up with energetic, passion-filled, original music. It's not for everybody, but I'm increasingly convinced that everybody should sample it at least once before they pass judgment on it. You'd be surprised at the sophistication and intelligence that lurks beneath its simple, rough exterior.
Links referenced in the show:

- They regularly practice at The 1511, a house/show spot located in the southern Broad Ripple area.

- The EP, available on their MySpace page was recorded at Ruckus Recording Studio.
- Their next project will most-likely be a split 7" vinyl release with Sex Before Marriage. Followed by a proper EP.
