Show #046: The World Famous Scraps

It may be a cliche, but it's certainly no exaggeration when I say that we've got a fantastic show for you this week.  Not only do we have six great tracks from The World Famous Scraps, but also a great interview that is both witty and intelligent.  How often does that happen simultaneously around here?  Top that off with our favorite co-host, the inimitable Jenn Cristy -- just to add a little sizzle to the show -- and you've got a recipe for an hour of auditory bliss. 

The World Famous Scraps (aka: The Scraps ... formerly known as The Binkleys ... occasionally known as Odang) are a three-piece punk/rock/indie band from Bloomington in the fine tradition of anti-establishment, anti-corporate, observational-based lyrics played against an angry tongue-in-cheek barrage of power cords and up-tempo drum bashing.  The interview, recorded at the IU Student Union in Bloomington, covers everything from their political and environmental views, to crazy road stories, studio nightmares, roller derby, and a few interesting little personal tidbits that you may find entertaining.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
