Great Plains were a ‘seminal’ 1980s Columbus, Ohio band led by Ron House, who was also the shirtless leader of Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, and who has fronted Psandwich and Counter Intuits. Other former Great Plains include: Mark Wyatt (One Riot One Ranger, The Beatdowns, etc.), Matt Wyatt (Campfire Walkers, Planktones!, Three Speeds), Dave Green (Screaming Urge), Don Howland (Gibson Bros, Bassholes), Mike ‘Rep’ Hummel (Quotas + solo artist), Paul Nini (Log, Peck of Snide, Househearts + solo artist), Bill Bruner (Dark Arts), and Jim Castoe (Men of Leisure). Great Plains releases appeared on the Homestead and Shadowline (NL) labels, and their songs have been covered live and on record by pals such as Yo La Tengo, Nothing Painted Blue, and fellow Ohioans Swearing at Motorists.
