Craig Bell is the original and current bass player for Rocket From the Tombs, the legendary proto-punk band formed in Cleveland, Ohio in the mid 1970s. He continues to record and tour with the band.
These days, however, The Down-Fi claims the lion's share of Craig's attention. The band is a stripped-down power trio that delivers dense, intense, and explosive rock and roll. With Craig on bass and vocal, Sam Murphy on guitar, and Blane Slaven on drums, no sounds are sacrificed in this tightly packed line-up.
Recordings and performances showcase Craig's songwriting new and old (the infamous "Final Solution," "Muckraker," and "America Now") as well as selected blasts from the last century's punk past. The Down-Fi is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN but is happy to get in the van and go anywhere they might be needed!
