Self described as “Good guys, bad band.” Armchair Martian is a Fort Collins, CO based punk-rock group with a strong Country Music influence. They are closely linked to Bad Astronaut and Drag The River, a seperate band, yet which features two current and one former member.
The only two consistent members are Jon Snodgrass (guitar, vocals) and Paul Rucker (drums). It is a running joke in the band that their bassists never last long, and this gave rise to the title of their fourth album Who Wants To Play Bass? They have at points included Marko Desantis of Sugarcult and Bad Astronaut and Chad Price of All and Drag The River.
After a hiatus, they reformed to tour for the second half of 2007.
