Acumen Nation was a coldwave band based in Chicago, Illinois. —- (Click for Full Discography)Formed in 1988 as Acumen by Jason Novak (Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack) and Jamie Duffy (Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack) (originally as a four-piece with Jason's brother Ethan Novak as drummer), the band released several cassette demos before self-releasing the CD demo "Transmissions from Eville" in 1994.
Although the glory days of the Industrial music scene in Chicago had faded by this point, through constant touring and sheer hard work on a number of different projects the duo have since established themselves as favorites in the US underground scene.
In 1997, the band were forced to change their name due to a legal dispute with a Bluegrass band also called Acumen. Duffy and Novak split their project into two halves - the drum and bass influenced DJ? Acucrack, and the more traditional rock format of Acumen Nation.
