Dallas, United States (1998 – 2010)

The Paper Chase was an experimental rock band from Dallas, Texas (formed in 1998), disbanded in 2010.

Since their inception, The Paper Chase (sometimes spelled “the pAper chAse”) has produced a combination of discordant melody and jagged noise pop.

The band consists of ringleader vocalist and guitarist John Congleton and piano and synthesizer guru Sean Kirkpatrick, with a heavy rhythm section of Bobby Weaver on bass and Jason Garner on the drum kit.

Congleton has written and produced all the material the band has produced as of yet.

    For the record, due to one of the band members leaving they did break up but John and several of the original members have continued under the name The Nighty Nite. It's essentially the same sound and they just put out two new tracks this month! Check em out if you miss that Paper Chase sound and crave new material!

    anyone know why the earlier stuff uses the capitalization 'the pAper chAse?' is it a reference to the scarlet letter?

    YouAreTheDemons and PowerfulLichIRL seem to be two accounts of the same person. But still, looks like the pAper chAse attracts Louis Wain fans.
