Local punk heroes release full-length debut on Sunset Alliance label

Jensen's next big plan for Sunset Alliance is to put together a compilation that will merge a handful of his favorite local artists (Reubens Accomplice, Fine China, Seven Storey, etc.) with approximately 10 of his favorite national -- and international -- indie bands (such as the Omaha, Nebraska, group Cursive, and the Swedish band Fireside). It's part of his strategy to expand the reach of the local scene, to allow local bands to be heard by people who would never know about them otherwise.

"All these bands are touring all over the country, and in some cases they're going to Europe," he says. "And a compilation like this will be a way of getting local bands into households around the world."

Five Speed: From left, Rob Anderson, Jared Woosley, Jesse Lacross, Chad Martin and Brad Cole.
