Named after a small island off the coast of Antarctica, This is Adelaide began in Lansing, MI in January of 2000. Featuring ex-members of the Ivy Crown, the line-up of Ian Cartwright (guitar/vocals), Sami Jano (guitar/vocals), Kris Kaczor (drums/vocals), and Ryan Moon (bass/vocals) were inspired by the post-punk likes of A Minor Forest and Slint, adding their own touch of absurd lyrics. Suburban Sprawl Music would eventually release This is Adelaide's self-titled debut EP within seven months of their formation.
