Notes: Soulpaint started out in Kokomo, IN, in 1988 and relocated to Indianapolis in 1991. They quickly integrated themselves into the Broad Ripple music scene and helped create the collectively-owned and locally-operated Augmented Mammary Records, featuring such like-minded local acts as Gravelbed, Acid Green, and The Young Lords. Soulpaint played a gazillion shows throughout the area, garnered a lot of press and even managed to get songs played on local radio stations for a spell. They also produced two self-released cassettes and a CD, as well as being featured on local compilation CDs from Indianapolis and Chicago. Soulpaint disbanded in 1995 to pursue other musical interests.

Goldstein released 500 on cassette for ...  More >>

Year: 1991

Notes: These live recordings are from a few early shows played in Bloomington and Indianapolis shortly after Zeps joined the band in late '90 and 'early '91. We played a few covers at this point because we didn't have enough originals to complete a set, and Zeps used to sing a few of them (like "You Got...  More >>

Year: 1990

Notes: The self-released cassette was put out back in '90 when Kevin Rhodenbaugh was our vocalist. It was an exciting time for the band as we were brand new, inspired, and itching to get out of Kokomo and play as much as possible. We probably won't get any credit for our amazing production $kills on t...  More >>
