Sarge was an indie rock band from Champaign, Illinois, in the United States. They released 3 albums on Mud Records. The band was formed in 1996. Lead by singer/songwriter Elizabeth Elmore, the band did some touring and released their debut album Charcoal on Mud Records. A single from that album, "Dear Josie, Love Robyn," received some exposure and media attention as the band toured the United States. In 1998, they released a breakthrough record of sorts, The Glass Intact. The album, an emotional, punk rock-style record, began to receive some serious media attention, being reviewed at Salon.com and making Spin Magazine's top twenty list in 1998. The album eventually sold nearly 20,000 copies. In 2000, Sarge split up for reasons unknown, although Elmore denies it was her choice. Sometime bassist Rachel Switzky played bass on and off in different bands, and drummer Chad Romanski continued working with Elmore by playing drums on the debut release of later band, The Reputation. Elmore was able to pull together some rare and unreleased material and create the third and final Sarge album, Distant, from it. Read more on Last.fm.
