Roctober Magazine has this to say about “The Modern Brain”—

“Though Jumpsuit is known for bringing the rock, it’s understandable that an introspective rock opera (putting audio to the tension, wonder, ecstasy and out of bodiless that occurs in the brain firings of a bowler’s mind as he pursues a perfect 300) requires more than just rock. John Elmquist of Hardart groop brings the angular twisted jazz modern classical weirdness to the party”

“Very strange and a little queasiness-inducing, but definitely something you actually feel in your brain as you listen.”

jumpsuit, kickstarter and radio

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Jumpsuit is getting some good airplay and a DJ at WNUR is not only playing their stuff, but also supported the album on kickstarter. Joe Germuska also was appreciative of the added bonus of the first issue of Jumpsuit Comics that he received with his LP. “The Jumpsuit Comic book is really great. I just wish it was more widely available… but I guess that’s what makes it precious.” said Germuska on the air. If anyone would like to hear Jumpsuit on their favorite independent radio station, just make a request – OR – drop us a line here at therockandtheroll and we’ll send them some tunes.
