Ian Reardon and Chris Carter

Chris Carter and Ian Reardon formed as an acoustic guitar/vocal duo in the late summer of 1999.

Alarm Clock Conspiracy is an Indie Rock / Power Pop / Alt-Country band from Asheville, NC. The "conspiracy" which we speak of, is the fallacy that all humans must awake to a bellowing alarm clock each morning, only to rush off to work at a job that they truly hate. We are the spearheads of a revolution against day jobs everywhere. Wake up to right now! ACC's influences are drawn from 60's & 70's acoustic folk, and rock music, as well as more current indie rock sounds of today. ACC's focus is on high energy live performances as well as writing genuine songs that are infectious, and to the point. We are capable of playing a 5 hour performance of original music, as well as covers by such bands as, The Beatles, The Police, Pink Floyd, The Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Neil Young, and many many more... What sets the band apart from most acts out there is our ability to play an acoustic performance, or a full bore electric rock show. We pride ourselves on our versatility to fit to whatever situation the event calls for.
