Biografia:
Mais lembrado como o baterista da cultuada banda powerpop Velvet Crush, Ric Menck também gravou uma série interminável de singles por selos independentes, usando uma variedade de nomes, aí incluídos Springfields e Choo Choo Train. Nativo de Champaign, Illinois, EUA, ele formou, em meados dos anos 80, sua própria gravadora, Picture Book, para lançar material dele e dos amigos e colaboradores, entre eles Paul Chastain.

Talvez a mais notável das primeiras bandas de Menck tenha sido a Springfields, que, entre 1988 e 1990, lançou um par de admiráveis singles – "Sunflower" e "Wonder" – através da legendária gravadora independente Sarah Records, do Reino Unido. Esses mesmos singles – bem como material da Choo Choo Train – foram coletados posteriormente no LP "The Ballad Of Ric Menck", lançado pela etiqueta Summershine, em 1996 (nota minha: o disco foi relançado em 2004, com faixas extras) (Jason Ankeny, AllMusic; tradução livre do inglês).
