Bankrupt and the borrowers


Bankrupt and the Borrowers are a 4-some from Austin, Texas, USA combining Grunge / Blues / Zouk. Members: Deadweight (Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Various Wind Instruments). Baggage (Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Horns), Cadger (Guitar, Bass, Vocals) and Osteo (Drums). 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, Fun Fun Fun Fest, with Pinetop Perkins, with Riverboat Gamblers, with Murder City Devils 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. Read more on Last.fm.
