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.
