Zumpano was a Canadian indie rock group in the 1990s. The band, whose power pop style was similar to such contemporaries as Sloan and The Super Friendz, consisted of vocalist/guitarist Carl Newman, keyboardist Michael Ledwidge, bassist Stefan Niemann and drummer Jason Zumpano.

The band signed to Sub Pop Records in 1994, along with fellow Canadians Eric’s Trip, Jale and The Hardship Post, as part of the label’s shift away from pure grunge rock. They released two albums on the label before breaking up. Newman reemerged in 2000 with The New Pornographers, and Jason Zumpano formed the band Sparrow in 2003 and Attics and Cellars in 2007.

    I listen to TNP now and then, but Zumpano is a much better band, and much more consistent.

    @emsireinam Yes I agree. I love this band, but I can't stand the Pornographers. Weird.

    I wish they were still around. There is always room for a Carl Newman project

    Zumpano were better than the New Pornographers. There, I said it, and I'd say it again.

    I'm surprised how obscure these guys are given how popular the New Pornographers have become.
