Biography

In 2005 in a year off from Film School, Alex recorded a solo EP and changed the X in his name to KS for no real reason. The EP proved to be rough but impressive debut. A band was formed solely for the purpose of having a launch for the EP and thus the ramps were formed.

From these unintentional beginnings, Aleks and the Ramps slowly morphed into a 'real' band that played regular shows and composed music in a collaborative process. Performances began to feature choreographed dance moves, ill-fitting basketball uniforms, injuries and equipment breakages due to wild stage behaviour accompanying their schizophrenic pop tunes.

The band has put out two albums since then, toured overseas a wee bit and are currently working on a film project tentatively called "aleks and the ramps: the musical"
