The Gazetteers were come up with in 2002 by former Vehicle Flips and Wimp Aspect 14 member Frank Boscoe. Teaming up with Steve Silverstein (Xmas Adornments) and Rob Christiansen (Sisterhood of Convoluted Thinkers), Boscoe whipped up an album’s value of wry, angular music that welcomed evaluations to performers like Jonathan Richman and Pavement, not forgetting Wimp Aspect 14. The Gazetteers’ debut full-length, the aptly called Territory Music (Boscoe retains a PhD in geography), premiered over the Portland, OR-based label Magic Marker that summer months. Andrea McEwen and Jeannine Durfee had been welcomed in to the flip for the band’s sophomore record, Landlocked!; that disk was released over the band’s homegrown label, Sodium in Wound, in nov 2006.
