This is the long out-of-circulation EP from Lawrence, KS indie-poppers The Believe It Or Nots. The band existed from around 1996 until 1999 in the Lawrence, Kansas area.
Heavily influenced by the pop-punk and indie-rock bands of the early to late 90's, The Believe It Or Nots were melodic and driving, yet sensitive and introspective. Buzzy, hooky riffs jitterbugged atop thundering drums and Mike Angeletti's uniquely raspy vocals. Starting out as a 4-track friendly basement band of college buddies at the University of Kansas, the quartet grew from a steady stream of dorm talent shows and house parties to eventually sharing stages and spit-covered floors with influential bands like Archers of Loaf, Hum, Creeper Lagoon, The Poster Children, The Anniversary, Appleseed Cast, Proudentall, and a lot of wonderful folks that never made it on anyone's radar outside of the Lawrence and Kansas City areas.
The Believe It Or Nots recorded one seven song EP (There's A Great Future In Plastics) with Ed Rose at Black Lodge Recording in Eudora, Kansas. The EP was released on Urinine Records (KC, MO) in August 1999 in a limited run of 500 cd's.
Right after releasing their debut EP, The Believe It Or Nots played their final show at Spirit Fest in Kansas City, Missouri on September 5, 1999.
