Shipping News United States
Shipping News began in the fall of 1996 when Jeff Mueller and Jason Noble wrote and recorded music for the NPR program 'This American Life'. They had previously worked together in the seminal post-hardcore band Rodan, based in Louisville, Kentucky. When Rodan split up in 1995, Jeff Mueller went on to play in June of 44 whilst Jason Noble formed the chamber ensemble Rachel's. Like Rodan, both of these bands have garnered enormous critical acclaim from listeners all over the world.
