Following the demise of Brooklyn rock trio Quilty, vocalist/guitarist
Sadie Dupuis began writing music at summer camp under the name Speedy
Ortiz. Her knack for songwriting was prosperous as she quickly wrote,
performed, and recorded an EP and full length of hook-heavy home demos.
The recordings are raw and simple, allowing the focus to rest entirely
on the charm and sarcastic wit of the songs themselves without any
studio gloss in sight. Speedy Ortiz was never meant to be a solo act,
however, and it was almost serendipitous that during the same time two
other East Coast indie rock favorites came to an end. Graph’s Matt
Robidoux (guitars), Ovlov’s Mike Falcone (drums), and Darl Ferm (bass)
joined Speedy Ortiz, coming together to create a crushing sound of early
‘90s-influenced guitar rock, grunge, and experimental pop. The
Massachusetts band’s grueling work ethic has led to near constant shows
on the East coast since their formation.Accessed on April 2, 2012 from http://www.explodinginsoundrecords.com/p/bands.html
