Indofin, from Austin TX, is the story of six brothers brought together by music. Together for over four years and brought up on a variety of musical influences ranging from Sublime to Slayer, Indofin plays a powerful blend of reggae, ska, hiphop, and punkrock. Back in 1999, TJ Huerta, Donny Mann, and Eric Tussing moved up to Ausitn from the Rio Grande Valley in Harlingen TX. Their main goal was to start a band. TJ, a former death metal drummer and self-taught guitarist, took up songwriting duties along with Donny on drums and Eric on lead guitar. Thus was the birth of Indofin. Mike McCarthy and Justin Cook, worked with these three at a telemarketing job that first year in Austin, and they all soon became close friends. Mike started DJ-ing for Indofin and Justin eventually took on MC duties, bringing a distinct hiphop element to the band. Neil, a coworker of Eric's filled in on bass in that first year for the band. During this time, the band released their first video, 'Koochie Karma' on the Austin Music Network (AMN). Neil left the band soon after, and Chris Greenwood, an old friend from the Valley, played bass for long enough for Indofin to record the Boozer Holiday EP and the video for 'Boozer Holiday.' In November of 2002, Chris left the band and Albert Huang came in to replace him as Indofin's permanent bassist. Albert, a former local musician/student/drifter/punk from southern CA, fit in perfectly with the band's vibe from the very first day and his unique bass style brought on a significant evolution in the overall sound of the band. Since then, Indofin has been regularly playing on the Austin club scene and is eagerly branching out to other cities in Texas. They have played SXSW Austin 2003 and 2004 and their songs 'Put In Work' and 'Power To Tell' are featured on the AustinPunkRock compilation CDs. In January 2005, Eric left the band to start a family. The rest of Indofin, however, intends to stick around. The band plans to record their first full length album in March 2005 and is planning their first seminational tour to support the album at the end of May 2005.
