Childhood friends, Scott Ricketts, Steve Potter, Spencer Kelley (The Hive Dwellers, Wallpaper), and Gilbert Clapp are Basemint, a band that loves everything '50s and '60s, especially the music, but don't get confused, they're no retro band. Self acclaimed fans of "all things punk and weird," Basemint keeps it real by keeping it old. That's a compliment.
