Crooks on Tape Bring Fingerprint Album To Life

Crooks on Tape

When John Schmersal moved to LA, he and former Enon bandmate Rick Lee began to play music with Joey Galvan, and the idea was simply to record everything in the moment.  Those sessions would later be pieced together to form Fingerprint, the debut album from Crooks on Tape.  Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt spoke with Schmersal about making the album and then adapting that material into something the band could perform on the road.

Crooks on Tape will perform on January 30th at Rockstar Pro Arena with Swimdiver, Swarm and Bearer of Bad News.
