Hailing from Long Island, New York, Sputnik''s Down formed in the summer of 2002 when one of it''s members was approached to write a song for a low-budget film. Built upon foundations of rock, jazz, and opera (believe it or not), Sputnik''s Down has developed a truly unique sound that is often loosely compared to bands such as Maroon 5, The Wallflowers, Counting Crows, and the Dave Matthews Band. The band''s lyrics conjure images of misguided love, the unanswered questions of youth, and even U.F.O.''s. It''s songs are held together by a tight rythm section with color provided by guitars, piano, and organ.

Sputnik''s Down has spent the last eighteen months recording and assembling it''s debut album, Going Down, which is due out in the first week of December (2004). A record release party and concert was be held at New York City''s Crash Mansion on February 12, 2005 and was a smashing success.

With plans to begin touring next year, and an aggressive performing schedule that has included stints at many significant New York City venues, Sputnik''s Down is on the verge of becoming one of today''s premier live rock acts.


Sputnik''s Down and it''s members have graced the stages of several prominent New York and Long Island clubs, including The Bitter Eng, Kenny''s Castaways, C.B.G.B.''s, Parkside Lounge, C-Note, ACME Underground, Le Bar Bat, The Downtown, and Munchaba Lounge. The band''s music has been featured in some overambitious student films and a wierd independent film you most certainly never saw.


Sputnik''s Down first full-length CD release, "Going Down", was recorded between May 2003 and July 2004 at VuDu Studios in Freeport, New York. It was produced and engineered by Michael Watts (Hopesfall, November Kills, Evenout, Five Cent Deposit) and mastered by Bob Stander.

The record contains 14 tracks, including a cover of Wayne Carson Thompson''s "The Letter," (made famous by the Box Tops in the late 1960''s), and runs just over 55 minutes.

In the bands opinion, the most radio-friendly songs on the record are "Never" (track one), "Devil in my Cup" (track three), "Ninja Love Triangle" (track seven), and "World I Hid" (track twelve). "Hideaway" (track two), "Lost Child" (track eleven) and "Kiss Me" (track thirteen) showcase the "lighter" side of the band. "Going Down" (track four) and "Great Divide" (track six) are band favorites, and usually open and close live performances, respectively.
