Vacant Andys



City: Boca Raton
Type Of Music: Aggressive Indie Rock
Years Active: 1991 - 1998 (roughly)
Myspace or Website: http://www.myspace.com/vacantandys

Vacant Andys will always be remembered as one of the first times that Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional) took center stage. What they should be remembered for is making great music which is what they did. All superior musicians, the band on stage was so much fun. John Owens knew how to talk to a crowd even if he was making jokes a good portion of the time. The Bonebrake brothers on bass and drums rounded out the band. Their style of melodic indie rock did have an aggressive and punk edge to it and you could usually count on a cover of Inside Out's "Burning Fight" or Quicksand "Thorn In My Side". This is yet another occasion where I truly feel they never got their due and broke up before they should have. Im hoping that someday someone will release all of their early material on one disc. I only have their two 7 inches so if anyone has their earlier material please get in touch with me. Members went on Anchorman, Dashboard Confessional, Seville, The Agency, Further Seems Forever, Where Fear and Weapons Meet, and The Enablers.

I spoke to Amy who ran Fiddler Records and she is in the process of making the Fiddler catalog (including the Vacant Andys) available through Itunes. I took the link down out of respect for her. Sorry
