Biography

Dallas, TX, USA

A Dallas, TX, USA four piece band using an style, harsh power and simple life song concepts. People grew fascinated with the music and after achieving a following of loyal friends promoting the group, locals began gathering for an experience showing at The Door. Christopher Sims (guitar/vocals), Marshall Anderson (guitar/harmonica), Dees Stribling (drums/keys/percussion) and Cyrus Zeinalpour (bass) continued to spread word about their new sound to peer bands, together building an impressive scene everyone wants to share, in the area .

Dallas’ Buzz-Oven’s discovery of the music took the group to a new high. Including two songs on a distribution compilation CD. As popular interest increases The Alexander performs at Virgin Records Megastore, at Mockingbird Station, in Dallas on March 2, 2005. After, popping Virgin’s cherry, The Alexander were begged to play one more time. Buzz-Oven, wanting to make the show bigger than before made a request for other bands to open for the group. The Alexander; however had an idea of their own.

September 26, 2005 comes around and everyone is talking about what will be in store tonight for the Virgin audience. With most opening bands developing little attention, tension soon builds as we witness black sheets being removed. The Alexander plays an acoustic set for the Buzz-Oven 15 CD release, using an upright bass, acoustic guitars, percussion instruments (including a glockenspiel) and a harmonica. A deep show, moving people to levels of phases in music one is virgin too. Witnessing the precision unit flowing from songs, tuning as a whole, using bows to reverberate a synchronicity of precision.

    It's a shame there aren't more listeners for them.

    This is one of my most cherished bands of freshman year. I saw them twice and it was amazing and i was sad to see them move off and become something different. If you can find a copy of the album (A City In Ruins), it is amazing. i bought it at a show and just about everybody in my school got a hold of it.

    There are lots of us who remember this band and yet have no way to contact them or find their stuff!! The band no longer exists unfortuntely. Last I heard, they went to New York and started a jazz group with a female singer. I wish them well but what I heard was a completely different direction, far far away from the beautiful post-rock of The Alexander. If you want to get their material I thankfully digitized my copy of their LP before it got scratched from being played way too much. I'd point you to where you could purchase it, but apparently thats impossible! DrakeHatfield@gmail.com
