Folks, this proverbial ticket to ride is an utter cold case. Got this through the college station I used to DJ at, and in all likelihood it arrived in the mail with an accompanying bio sheet of some sort, not that I would have saved it even if I originally had access to it. Anyway, three promising songs from an earnest bunch o’ San Fran up-and-comers, residing on the crunchier side of period indie rock, a la Small 23, Figgs or perhaps a rawer Material Issue. The only potential link I was able to cross reference on Five Ticket Ride was a handful of YouTube clips that could be a different band of the same moniker, but the sonic similarities give me the impression they’re one and the same. Anyone have a clue on these folks, comment away. Am enthused to hear more.
