The brainchild of bedroom symphony conductor Doug Kabourek, Fizzle Like a Flood craft elaborately layered indie pop opuses. Having previously drummed for Matchbook Shannon, Kabourek eventually found his own company preferable to a band setting and started his tenure as mastermind behind the similarly singular Laces, releasing two full-length albums of emo-pop. Kabourek again went the solo route with the release of Golden Sand and the Grand Stand, a painstakingly constructed concept album, rife with various collected sound effects and multi-tracked production, released in 2000 on the Unread label. Though largely without collaborators, Kabourek nonetheless occasionally takes the stage in his native Omaha, NE, performing substantially stripped-down versions of his songs.
