 Fly Magazine-Band/Performers Archive Article
The band’s albums so far have been an adventure in lo-fi, consisting mostly of roomy eight-track recordings with handclaps, whoops and hollers that add a romper-room effect to the music.
Whether the band is doing a country two-step or a psychedelic rocker, the three- and sometimes four-part harmonies are always juicy and borderline genius.
It’s a matter of appreciating the aesthetic the band is pursuing, which is more consistent with the recordings of early Stones and The Band than what you’ll hear on the radio today.

 UMass Magazine and band director George Parks with the Sudler Trophy
The Minuteman Band, as MacRostie informed the crowd with gusto, is this year's recipient of the Louis C. Sudler Trophy of the John Philip Sousa Foundation: the nation's top award for a college marching band.
Band members don't get scholarships like those at some bigger schools, but no one who wants to be in the Marching Minutemen, and is willing to do the work, is turned away.
And yet the band's tenure at its current spread-out headquarters (the main office is in the University Apartments, the practice space is Grinnell Arena) has coincided with its greatest honor: its one-year reign, which can never be repeated, as holder of the Sudler Trophy.

 SPIN.com: Voxtrot
It would be an awkward, often solitary dance preferred by gangly, emotionally fragile young men, the kind who shimmy on a Friday night beneath the mirror ball, completely naïve to their surroundings, until a cute young thing accidentally sashays into their line of sight, spawning something special, if just for one night.
For this party scene, Voxtrot is the house band.
Frontman Ramesh Srivastava founded the band to flesh out his songbook, but while he was pursuing a lit degree in Scotland, Voxtrot remained a recreational outlet for summertime and breaks.

 The Spill Magazine: BAND: The Floor
Personnel is the band’s debut full-length, released in late May on NrmlsWlcm Records.
Nowadays, there are so many bands that put a couple of synths on stage and hammer away in such an obvious style that it's almost like a parody of new wave rather than building on its legacy.
For us, The Floor is definitely a guitar band first and foremost, but I think the synth textures we use are pretty subtle and really complement the songwriting.

 Spotlight Band: The Muckrakers | Full Effect Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The band’s success and the accomplishments of their latest debut, “Front of the Parade,” have possibly made them the second best-selling band to come from WKU (after rap group Nappy Roots and The Hilltoppers, a 50’s doo-wop group).
Not that the band hadn’t done covers before; in fact, they still play some, such as the “Rap Medley.” But most of the time they limit playing covers because they feel their own music is often overshadowed.
Playing in Louisville and other bigger cities can still be difficult for them, however, particularly since the band and their self-proclaimed “geek-pop” don’t always mesh too well with the other music surroundings, such as the popular Indie.

The original band had actually split up by the time I got into the music and in fact the first album that I heard was "68-71", a compilation.
Following a couple of secret gigs in Wales, the band played in France and Belgium in mid-1975, then their "debut" in the UK being at the Victoria Palace theatre on the 27th July and a little later at the New Vic on August 30th.
The front cover sported an unusual picture, entitled "Band of Millions of Years", which was used to publicise the Godbluff tour and appeared on a compilation album cover.
