The Down-fi / Bio

Craig Bell is the original and current bassist for Rocket From the Tombs, the
legendary proto-punk band from Cleveland, Ohio in the mid 1970’s. He continues today to record and tour with the band.

Lately, however, The Down Fi claims the lion’s share of Craig’s attention. The band is a stripped own power trio that delivers dense, intense, and explosive rock and roll.

With Craig on bass and vocal, Sam Murphy on
guitar, and Blane Slaven on drums, no sounds are sacrificed in this tightly packed lineup.

Recordings and performances showcase Craig’s songwriting new and old (the infamous, Final Solution, Muckraker and America Now) as well as selected blasts from the last century’s punk past.

The Down Fi is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN but is happy to get in the van and go anywhere they might be needed!
