The Selects is #Flyah




From the farmland and gently rolling hills of southern Indiana comes the sound of a strange rock band roaring to life. Although there are many local bands which populate the bars and clubs of the area, this one is different. The songs are unique, the playing is of a style harkening back to 70's punk rock and reminiscent of 90's grunge at the same time. The theme of The Selects seems to be 'unique' as just looking at the members this becomes apparent. Front man and bassist Ethan Eck is a classic punk rocker, drummer Rama Sobhani is an efficienado of 50's and early 60's rock, and guitarist Matt Hutson embodies the power pop and grunge of the early 90's. The band's beginning dates back only a year with the break-up of two Vincennes, Indiana bands; Sonic Strike and Paper Sweaters. The three were united by their desire to make a brand of rock music all their own. Vincennes is now where they call home, a tiny, quiet town free from the urgency of big city America. It is here the punk rock/grunge music is made against the prevailing winds of country and southern rock in the area. Taking the stage adorned in plaid, punk rock and Big Star T-shirts they convey a message that many legendary bands have; this our music and we won't back down from it. Their new record, Fast Times at Hammerheads, is a taste of the band's sarcasm inspired by a disasterous gig at a defunct club in Evansville, Indiana. Although The Selects may not have known it, the hip-hop club in which three people attended their show will become a part of the band's legend as much as the community of skaters and punk rockers that have given their praise and acceptance.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
