Knickerbocker ripping rock n roll that will literally blow minds with originality.
from San Francisco
Members: Keith Insufferable, vocals; Gene Michal, lead guitar; Carolyn Insufferable, guitar/vocals; Ram Fenster, bass/guitar/vocals; Mel Insufferable, drums.
Sounds Like: New York Dolls, REM, The Smithereens, The Cramps, The National
Cutting to the chase, the Insufferables can be described, after extensive analysis, as a schizophrenic blend of the New York Dolls, REM and the Smithereens. They present jangle and crunch guitars, frequently in the same song, and unusually articulate vocals in the idiom of Lux interior or Standard Ridgeway that convey our important messages of love, animal welfare and deviant sexual practice. They were formed in 2009 by a handful of San Francisco music geeks.
The lead singer, Keith Insufferable, is an unfrozen caveman story-teller and bartender who delivers a broad range of American vocal styles from Country to Blues to lounge to California punk, and really wants you to get it.
Carolyn Insufferable, formerly guitarist for the seminal punk bands The Profalactics and The Varve, plays highly distorted rhythm guitar often in the correct key and sings backups like she will not be allowed to sing again.
Gene Insufferable, who formerly played classical guitar mostly for his cat, plays crisp arpeggios and leads for those jangle songs, and channels Johnny Thunders for the other nasty songs.
Ram Fenster plays bass, rhythm guitar, djembe and backup vocals. We are trying to get him to play more sh*t like maybe a saxophone or marimba.
Mel Insufferable, our drummer, is known for her unusual technical drumming and for being the worlds smallest adult drummer, while paradoxically eating her own body weight in food every two days.
