Meet the Band: The Ripovs!

Hometown: Baltimore

Members: James Plummer, drums; Jim Grice, bass; Mike Smith, guitar and vocals

Founded: 2006

Style: garage rock

Influenced by: The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Kinks and the Rolling Stones

Notable: By the end of the summer, the band hopes to have a debut full-length album. Each song should clock in between two and three minutes, Smith said.

Quotable: "We try to keep it short - keep it simple," Smith said. "People are busy. They've got to get on with their lives. They can't spend hours listening to music. We've got to give it to them hard and fast."
