Trumans Water are an indie rock band from San Diego, California formed in 1991. They have released over a dozen albums over their career, on which they collaborated with acts in genre, including Azalia Snail, Chan Marshall and Thurston Moore. Trumans Water was formed by the brothers Kirk and Kevin Branstetter, and the original drummer Jeff Jones in San Diego in 1991, after they were given a guitar and a bass guitar by a friend's father. They advertised for a "lead singer, brain optional", and recruited Glen Galloway as a result. Other members of the band have included Ely Moyal, Andres Malinao and Kevin Cascell.

Links to Peel

Trumans Water was discovered by Peel when he played tracks from their 1992 self-released debut LP Of Thick Tum. So impressed with the album that he made an effort to try and interview the group on his 11 September 1992 show with mixed results, where at the beginning, he was not able to communicate with member Kevin Branstetter until a couple of minutes in.
