Muncie, IN - 1990 to 1994.
Crankpin formed after Case Yellow disbanded at the end of 1989. Crankpin went on to become a popular original band in Muncie with some notoriety around Indiana. Crankpin was one of the first Muncie bandsof the post-No Bar era to break out of Muncie and play many of its shows in places like Indianapolis; Louisville, KY; Columbus, OH; Cincinnati, OH; Chicago, IL; and Champaign, IL and all over Indiana. Crankpin played with notable bands like Lungfish, The Laughing Hyenas, Vampire Lesbos, Antenna, Big Wheel and Samiam.
The band formally recorded about 30 songs in its lifespan, mostly with Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana in Lafayette, releasing three cassettes, and a 7-inch record and appearing on a number of compilations.
