Rubber Pants - "The Meltdown"
Released July 2009



What do you get when you mix a Bassist who's influences include Bob Dylan, The Doors, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers with a Drummer who's into the Minutemen, Nirvana, and The Meters with a Guitarist who identifies with Duane Eddy, AC/DC, and The Dead Kennedys? Toss in some witty lyrics and a pinch of garage attitude and you have Rubber Pants. Rubber Pants is a trio that draws upon many musical genres and real life experiences. During the summer of 2004, Jeff Jahnke (Drummer), who resides in Hartford, CT, met Kitty Hawk, NC locals Tom May (Guitarist) and Brian Hunsicker (Bassist) on a construction site where the three were working on an enormous beach house. Music chatter and post work beers eventually led to a number of jam sessions. Initially playing improvisational jazzy stuff that often had a Primus meets Medeski, Martin & Wood sort of vibe, we began compiling (on a single track recorder) hundreds of musical germs that lead to the birth of our own cohesive sound and musical style. In 2006 Brian got a call to play a solo gig at a local wine festival. He convinced the promoter to allow us all to play. Brian received the festival contract which required a band name. He immediately phoned his friends, leaving messages that the band needed a name, and asked for suggestions. Later that day, Tom left Brian the two word message "Rubber Pants." The name stuck, and the newly named band had less than two weeks to learn enough material to fill the festival's three hour slot. We performed a mix of two-week-old original demos (e.g. "Daddy Long Legs"), old rock covers (e.g. Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well"), and a number of original jazzy vamps (e.g. "Lactic Acid Thievery") from the band's improv sessions. Rubber Pants was born. In 2008, while continuing to write new songs and present them to the locals and tourists at the beach bars, Rubber Pants decided to make a CD. With the employ of our good friend and front man of the Indie band You Scream I Scream, Floyd Kellogg, Rubber Pants recorded their 14-song debut album, "The Meltdown," which was released in July 2009. The band recently shot two music videos w/ Spookie Daly of Spookie Daly Pride, who has also written and directed videos for JJ Grey and Mofro, Booker T, and You Scream I Scream. Rubber Pants is currently working on their 2nd album; and also have written and produced a song ("Reading The Mail") which is being included in a feature length action sports film, called "Stealing Cars" (
