UnderTipper began as a project in late 2014 when Tavis Disgraceful parted ways on good terms with Cincinnati OH punk band “Bad Standard” to focus on recording a full length solo album. The goal of UnderTipper was to take existing original songs, give them a bit of a facelift and ensure they were recorded as well as one dude hanging out in a basement with a few beers, guitars, and a computer is able. At very minimum it still sounded like a pretty appealing way to spend free time in the evenings. Three months into the project Bad Standard bassist Jeff Forton was persuaded to "come over and have a few brews" ultimately leading to him recording bass guitar and additional backup vocals for the album. One can never have enough “gang vocals” though….the struggle is real. Ultimately Clay Stevens and Mike Ashcraft (both from Bad Standard) where invited down into the basement to croon additional backup vocals into the microphone. With group vocal “gangyness” achieved, there was still the small matter of getting a decent album mix. Having been a longtime fan of The Copyrights (and originally hailing from the Carbondale IL area himself) Tavis contacted Luke McNeill (The Copyrights, Hospital Job, all around super nice guy) about mixing the album. Apparently Luke never sleeps because he agreed to take on the project. The end result is the debut UnderTipper album “Barely Making ¢ents”, consisting of 10 short and sweet punk songs....kinda like they made back in the 90s.
