Pop quiz! Who has been in the most Indietracks bands?

Post by lloydybwoy » Thu Jan 15, 2015 11:26 am

What the title says, really - who out there has played Indietracks with the greatest number of separate bands? I don't mean one-off / guest appearances (so Emma Kupa has played with Standard Fare and Without Feathers - any others? -, but her appearance with Allo Darlin doesn't count), although that's also a good question!

(I don't know the answer by the way!)

Any thoughts / guesses?

At a guess, Ian Cowen has played in 5 different bands... anyone confirm this?

Ian probably can :)

(pocketbooks, Sunny Street, Electrophonvintage and The Understudies.. Cant think of a 5th..)

Dan Chapman must be up there? and Johhny Drums..

Pocketbooks, The Loves, Cosines - there must be more for those 2?

Cowen also played in The Cut Outs.. so yeah, 5.. at least.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

I was just coming on here to make that very joke.

But yeah, probably Ian Cowen.

I was thinking it would most likely be a Pocketbooker, aye.

I can think of four outings in different guises for Markie Popstar - Markie Plays Girlpop, The Parallelograms, Velodrome 2000 and The Mini Skips. Possible to squeeze another one out of him (ooer) and force a tie with those already named?

I wonder if Indiepop Singalong counts...

What about providing music for the 'guess the song' round at the quiz?

Didn't they do a set on the train?

Do I get points for being in as many Indietracks bands as the number of times I've been to Indietracks, or am I just cheap?
I'm Emma. Insert Field Mice reference here.
