Discourse and Remorse With Josh Fitzwater

Josh Fitzwater and the Shambles are a band that proudly exploit their misadventures, trials & tribulations, and painfully brilliant moments that make up their lives. Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Josh and the Shambles set out to tell a never-ending story through a head full of words and music.

Josh's discerning memory is one that reminisces about love lost and found and capricious youth and is always a few steps behind his journey. In other words its moving forward by looking back.

Josh Fitzwater and the Shambles album Discourse and Remorse is a blast of late 80's, early 90's influenced college rock that brings to mind bands like The Replacements, Buffalo Tom, and maybe even a little bit of The Buck Pets when the band is at its most upbeat and maybe like Soul Asylum at its most folky. Listening to Discourse and Remorse is like being back on college radio in the early 90's; angsty, energetic, and moody in all the best ways. Discourse and Remorse is so far removed from today's scene that listening to it is like a breath of fresh air, especially, if you've been around the block a few times.
