Get Up Kids

Four Minute Mile (Reissue)

Doghouse 47

Released on October 20, 2009

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Kansas City's Get Up Kids play melodic, pop-inflected emo similar to the Promise Ring and Braid, with whom the band released a split single in 1998. The influential group debuted in 1996 with a slew of 7"s, including Shorty and All Stars. Both the Woodson EP and their debut full-length, Four Minute Mile, the latter which they recorded with Shellac's Bob Weston, were released in 1997. The well-received albums started a growing buzz around the indie rock scene, causing the band to field offers from major labels, which they ultimately turned down. In 1998, the Get Up Kids toured extensively with bands like The Promise Ring and Jimmy Eat World and released more singles, including "I'm a Loner, Dottie, a Rebel," which also appeared on this classic 1999 album, Something to Write Home About, released originally on Heroes & Villains/Vagrant. Something to Write Home About focused the scrappy energy of their promising debut into a visceral and intelligent collection of highly introspective and melodic songs that would go on to influence countless bands. After nearly a decade of touring and a multitude of releases, the band members parted ways to pursue other projects. Singer Matt Pryor went on to form the New Amsterdams, and recently released a solo project. Bassist Rob Pope is now a member of the successful indie rock group Spoon. Brothers Rob and Ryan played in the Doghouse indie rock band Koufax. The Get Up Kids contributions to the Emo Music scene are apparent with artists from Fallout Boy to HelloGoodBye citing the band as a major influence.
