About Textbook

Formed in 1998, Textbook is the brainchild of Dave Lysien formerly of Chicago punks Not Rebecca. Equal parts 90's alternative and 80's punk with a dash of midwestern roots rock, the band is rounded out by longtime friends Rick Uncapher on bass (Dan Vapid & The Cheats, ex-Woolworthy), Mark Doyle on drums (ex-Loud Lucy, Verbow) and Dan Knapik (ex-Not Rebecca, Venom Lords) on guitar. The band has released 5 full-length records, traveled on 3 tours abroad, and has songs featured on the TV shows "Real World: Sydney" and "Living Lohan". The band also released a 'Best of' record titled "On The B-Side" in March 2016 on Paper + Plastick Records.
