about

Comprised of members from The Drastics, The Pinstripes, and Akasha; The Ignobles bring a vintage Jamaican aesthetic with modern production - Heavy instrumentation and attention to thoughtful, poignant lyrics.

Our debut 7" comes from a week of collaboration at Happy As A Lark homebase Dirty North Studio in Chicago - Pinstripes lead singer Mike Sarson came with a cadre of new tunes and together with the Drastics drum/bass duo of Anthony Abbinanti and Chris Merrill laid down the foundation of these heavy heavy riddims.

For the digital release, King Tony provides the dubs (as usual) and the addition of Wadadah II's (www.wadadahii.com) effortless deejay style over 'Wandering Heart' (titled 'Wandering Skank') helps round out these two songs into more than just a 'single' release.
