Album Notes
Certified Pre-Owned, a debut album by new Indie band Used Karmas, is a moody mix of ballads and driving rock songs with a stripped down sound whose influences range from ‘60s Brit Pop to ‘80s post-Punk and ‘90s alt-rock. In 11 original songs, Used Karmas ponders universal themes like love, loss, and why there’s always one missing sock.

A shared passion for music and more life experience than the average boy band can boast brought the members of Used Karmas together.

Jim Farkas (guitar, vocals, harmonica), who started playing in bands in the ‘60s and who spent an inordinate amount of time at the Fillmore East, was a professional actor in NYC before becoming a finance guy. After a stint in the world of minor league sports administration, he is currently CFO of New York City Center, a venerable arts institution.

Jeff Yager (drums, vocals) took the overachieving route all the way to Johns Hopkins and Columbia Medical School. A renowned NYC cosmetic surgeon with a truly staggering music collection and a weakness for art nouveau, he’s the floppy haired drummer every band needs.

Steve Bag (lead guitar, vocals, keyboards), never went as far afield from his primary passion as his bandmates. Working at a record store as a kid led to a gig in marketing and p.r. for a record company. He has recorded albums and played at CBGB’s and other hot spots in NY and is a full-time guitar teacher.

Used Karmas invites you to listen to Certified Pre-Owned, a musical journey with decades of influences and echoes of The Who, Nick Drake, The Doors, and maybe even a little Coldplay, but with a thoroughly unique sound.
