The guys of Transportation met at Amherst College but upon graduation the trio decided to move to Chapel Hill, NC to continue their music. Now, close to a decade later, they debut their long anticipated first full length record. Through the years they've released a three song 7' and a 19 song CD-r only record known as the Transportation Hour that was given away free to friends and fans. Collectively, or individually, they've helped run local venues, rehearsal rooms and studios, have played countless area shows and have lent their talents to many other local groups. As a band, the trio strive to remain sympathetic to the more traditional genres of American and British Rock while also continuing to seek a contemporary relevance. To that end they have achieved local success by underscoring the things they like so much about the music they grew up with. Rather than trying to subvert, or in some way refuse those influences, they incorporate them. Recorded by Nick Petersen @ Track & Field Studios in Carrboro, NC. RIYL: Big Star, The Replacements, Queen, Badfinger and Guided By Voices.
