Jaded / The Watercolour



Major props to this blog for the description:
The Watercolour were an emo/punk outfit from Indianapolis who played a few shows from 1993-1996. There were actually two periods of this group, the first was done under the name "Jaded", and the songs tended to be much angrier and rough. The later period, under "the Watercolour" softened in its approach substantially. Both incantations of the group were in the emo/hardcore genre and I think the listener can immediately hear the influences.

A 7" of 2 songs by Jaded was released by the now defunct Witching Hour Records/Diffusion Records around 1996/97. The Watercolour was featured on a 7" compilation which benefited Judy Barry (http://shallbejudged.blogspot.com/2007_04_01_archive.html) and that was released circa 1995. I hope to extract these vinyl releases and upload as mp3s at a later date. At the end of the band's short run, they went to Airborne Studios (in Zionsville of all places) to record. 8 songs were done at the session (in the wee hours of the morning to save money) 2 of which were the "jaded" 7" listed above, the other 6 were lost for about 10 years. I'm posting them here as mp3s for those who may have known the band or were familiar with that particular scene. I appreciate if anyone remembers them or any of this to correct my post.

The members of the band were:
Chris Saligoe - bass, he went on to form and continues to play bass in RACEBANNON
Austin Considine - guitar, now plays in NYC band RAZOR SHINES
Mike Anderson - guitar, formed and continues to be the vocalist in RACEBANNON & RAPIDER THAN HORSEPOWER
Rob Smith - drums, played drums for awhile in RAPIDER THAN HORSEPOWER, now guitar in RAZOR SHINES (NYC)
Ryan Schneider - vocals (Jaded + Watercolour), artist in NYC
Chris Mullin - vocals (Jaded) I think Chris resides in Bloomington, IN
I can't actually find any mp3's on that blog, or the one it links. So here's what I have. I'm missing the compilation song, but here's the rest. The Jaded 7" is really good.
