Rumble Fish are an Indie band whose music is completely done by the members of the band themselves. Even before their official debut in the major stages, the singer-and-songwriter band, consisting of 4 members, have been well-known among clubbers and music producers. As underground musicians, Rumble Fish’s performances were mainly based in clubs around Hongik University, such as Jammers. Their powerful and dynamic music and charismatic attitude filled the clubs with fans who loved their music every time they put on a concert. Such popularity led the creation of a community with 2,500 members even before the release of their debut album.

The band’s brilliant career of winning prizes in various contests was also one of the reason so many people had predicted the success of Rumble Fish. In 2003 alone, the band won the Superior Award in Ssamji Sound Festival, the Grand Prize in Korea Rock Championship and also the Grand Prize in SBS Net Song Festival.

Rumble Fish want to get closer to the populace with their self-written songs of dramatic composition, fun arrangements and attractive sounds.

Last year Rumble Fish increased their popularity with their third album Open The Safe, which featured the online hit "You and Me Again". Now the Korean rock band, led by vocalist Choi Jin Lee, return with their latest release, Memory For You. Underlined by the lead singer’s memorable voice, the principal track is "The Rain and You" (Track 3), originally sung by Park Joong Hoon in the film Radio Star that also stars veteran actor Ahn Sung Ki. The latest ten-track album by the highly inventive and energetic band also features the promising new song "Red Umbrella" (Track 4) and new renditions of the classics "A Girl on a Rainy Night " (Track 1) and "Watercolors on a Rainy Day" (Track 7) with female R&B trio Gavy N.J.
