Bankrupt and the Borrowers are a dirty crew of vagrants and scoundrels, and, as such, they come from a long line of decadent tradition and pain. They are, as their name eludes . . . poor.
They live together in a house in Austin Texas. Usually you can find someone passed out somewhere in one of the many rooms. There is incomprehensible writing scrawled all over the walls alongside marker drawings and sprawling holes. There is trash everywhere, the rooms are all smoky, and the fridge is always full of condiments.
Lucky for music, financial status says nothing for musical talent.
Originally from the northeast, Cadger, Baggage and Deadweight trekked across the country in a mostly disastrous, and largely worthless, tour of open mics, house parties, and empty bars.
In 2006 they arrived in Austin sleeping in their van and eating Thanksgiving at the Dirty Dog Saloon.
After rounding up a following of similar-minded derelicts, the Austin music community took note, earning Bankrupt and the Borrowers such significant gigs as legendary Antone''s Nightclub, Mohawk, SXSW and some girl''s birthday party. In actuality, the Antone''s show was a turning point for the band and the marriage of The Versatile Syndicate Production Company with the Borrowers.
Since then they have been featured on the Fox News morning show twice. In the summer of 2008 the Borrowers released their first EP, Beers on the Bible. They continue to tour both the Austin community and the Texas music scene throughout the 2008 Fall.
Honing his bluesy guitar riffs while at college in Boston, Cadger hooked up with the indie-inspired stylings of Deadweight, fresh back from thumbing his way across the country, and they decided to be poor together. Incorporating Baggage''s horns and misery over acid lunch. After filtering through a series of drummers, they came to find Osteo, a veteran of the Austin punk rock scene, Osteo brings an aggressive but tasteful backbeat, further dirtying the Bankrupt sound.
Together for over two years to date, the Borrowers have been writing consistently and playing for anyone who will listen.
