The Lowdown:

The Fumes started out as a group of teachers from International School Phnom Penh with a shared taste for the rock of ages. Currently in its third incarnation, the band hopes to provide Phnom Penh with an eclectic education in the history of rock music. Influences range from the ‘60s to now, including The White Stripes, Green Day, Violent Femmes, Garbage, The Killers, Talking Heads, The Pixies, and The Kinks.

A multinational affair, hailing from the US, Canada, the Philippines and the UK, they are expanding their horizons coastward and considering gigs in Kep or Sihanoukville, but the main focus is to keep jamming and penning new, original songs.

Life is about more than jam sessions and swigging bourbon, though. As bassist Darren Jahn says: “Taking the baby’s car seat out of the back to move our gear is SO not rock and roll!”

The Fumes will be playing at Equinox Bar on Street 278 on January 28 and alongside a plethora of musical talent at the third Penhstock in March at Sharky Bar on Street 130.

Line-up:
• Karin Schelzig (Vocals, guitar)
• Gem Habito (Guitar)
• Jon Banules (Keys)
• Darren Jahn (Bass)
• Brian Webster (Drums)
