The Ins are a band. And like all bands, we defy easy categorization. We are merely a band interested in making people's lives better through good ol' rock and roll.
the story of the Ins closely follows the story of the founding member, joel d. ptacek. joel's musical experience began by playing bass in the band "the Stationwagons". after many shows and climbing to the peak of local rock stardom, the SN/WN broke up when their drummer decided to further his education many miles from home. joel soon got together a new band, the Ins, and they began playing rock and roll along the lines of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Vines. they have achieved critical acclaim for their unique style, and have even received airtime on local radio stations. they are currently recording, playing shows, and working the publicity end of the rock and roll game.
Some influences: the Olivia Tremor Control, the Vines, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Pavement, the Who... with bands such as these, who needs... Madonna?
