Between the Cracks: Nephrons tonight at Black Sheep

Once again, Faingold at Large proudly presents "Between the Cracks" - the recurring feature designed to shine a light onto Springfield-area bands, and all in their own words, to boot. Join us, won't you? There's gold between them thar cracks!

Today's BTC spotlight shines on regular-guy punk band Nephrons whose unassuming surface belies a ferocious live show. Take it away boys!


Website: nephrons.bandcamp.com

Personnel: Fred Malcom - Drums,  Skip Davis - Bass, Andy Harmon - Guitar/Vocals

Native or transplant? All Springfield born/raised

What's in a name, particularly yours? It's a boring anatomical term, becase we are boring.

When did you form? 2007

Releases/discography/download links:  We put out a S/T full length in 2011. We are releasing our 2nd LP on vinyl August 1st. It's called "Black Bedroom."

How do you pay the bills? Andy takes X-rays. Skip works on elevators, chair lifts, etc. Fred is in the insurance game. Wow, we sound boring!

What other artists have had the biggest impact on you? The one formerly known as Prince.

Finish this sentence: If we didn't have to worry about money, we'd… probably buy our own island. You're not invited.

Upcoming live appearances: Tonight at 7 PM, Black Sheep Cafe (1320 S. Eleventh) with Hank, Cassfield and Caterpillar Club;  Tomorrow, August 2nd, at 9PM, Bar None (corner of Fifth and Monroe) with The Seething Coast and Like...With Jetpacks!
