The Detachment Kit

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Detachment Kit is an American post-rock band. Detachment Kit, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, was born of the bandmembers’ desire to express their musical disassociation with everything around them. While they embrace and support the current independent sonic palette, they see themselves as an inherently conceptual band that is separate from the readymade confines of scenes, labels and genre-specific musical movements. As singer Ian Menard says:

“I think we are relative to the current indie scene, but we’re not card carrying members of any particular genre. Actually, my card is all maxed out. What we are looking for is debt relief.”
Ian Menard (guitar and lead vocals) and Charlie Davis (guitar) are the constructors of Detachment Kit. On “Of This Blood” (Frenchkiss Records), the highly-anticipated follow-up full-length to their 2002 debut “They Raging Quiet Army”, Ian handled guitars, drums, and vocals while Charlie pulled double-duty playing guitar and bass. The touring version of Detachment Kit includes a rhythm section comprised of Michael Hamilton (drums) and Bryan Mayer (bass guitar).
“Of This Blood” was recorded in two weeks time at Steve Albini’s studio, Electrical Audio, in Chicago, IL, the same creative hotbed where the band spent all of one day recording their first album, They Raging Quiet Army. The thirteen additional days wear well on Detachment Kit.

    I must agree with pillcake, it's a shame that they don't have more listeners than they do.

    Anyone have any info about the tour ep they released. I think it was titled "as if it weren't cold" or something like that?
