Zebras
Zebras
Zebras return to their spastic noisy synth punk style for one night only. Usually compared to Dead Kennedys, Devo, and various Am Rep groups. Zebras have spent the last ten years playing spastic punk to doomy thrash with such bands as Melt Banana, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine, Torche, DRI, Black Flag, Negative Approach, Die Kreuzen, Old Time Relijun, Deerhoof, Brain Tentacles, Sumac, Old Man Gloom, etc etc etc. This may well be the last Zebras show ever.!
The Hussy
The Hussy
Madison, Wisconsin’s psych-punk duo The Hussy return with GALORE (Southpaw Records), their first full length since 2013’s critically acclaimed Pagan Hiss! Last year’s split 12” with Digital Leather featured a darker, denser side of The Hussy. On the split, Shawn Foree (Digital Leather, TIT) intricately tangled synthesizers into The Hussy’s signature lo-fi scuzzpop that fans had come to expect. The result was a unique mini-album that stirred the band into new audio territory. GALORE takes things in a slightly different direction…almost entirely abandoning keyboards for the sonic textures of various guitars, amplifiers, effect pedals, violin, lap steel and percussive elements. The underlying sonics may have morphed, but the hooks and guy/girl interplay are immaculately omnipresent…this may be the Hussy’s catchiest and popiest record to date! Recorded onto ¼” tape with a Tascam 388 by Bobby Hussy in the band’s practice space, the DIY lo-fi aesthetic is still fully baked into it all. GALORE’s polished but slightly perforated sound hints at the slew of previous material The Hussy have released, while significantly stepping things up through a richer, more expansive sound palette. This is the first Hussy LP with bass guitar added to the entire record, marking it as somewhat of a turning point for the band. GALORE showcases The Hussy at their creative peak, crafting concise pop gems that evolve and devolve after every listen while always definitively being The Hussy. The years the band has spent touring, recording and honing their seemingly telepathic connection have amounted to a vast and varied catalogue rivaling even the most prolific artists of the current garage/punk/whatever underground. Last year saw the band opening and backing the masked madman NOBUNNY himself on tours through North America, Australia and New Zealand. The Hussy also toured with The Faint in 2014, and they have played shows with The Reigning Sound, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, King Khan and BBQ, Local H, White Fence, Black Lips, Nots, Blind Shake, Digital Leather, Kadavar, Useless Eaters and too many others to name. The Hussy most recently the Midwest, East Coast and Southern United States in June 2015 and Europe followed in August 2015.
Absolutely Not
Absolutely Not
"Absolutely Not play terse, ripping punk rock n' roll with glam flourishes that is high energy, melodic and just pretty fuckin' cool."
-Pork Magazine

"Maybe what impresses me most about Absolutely Not guitarist and front man Donnie Moore is his bizarre knack for sounding like a charming snot-nosed brat. Absolutely Not are at their best when they hammer through blown-out garage songs that last less than two minutes and let Moore’s charisma take charge." - Chicago Reader

"Absolutely Not is the brainchild of Donnie Moore and generates infectious one-two beat punk chords. It's an Iggy Pop meets Kevin Barnes approach to jagged garage-rock." - TIMEOUT Chicago
Forsake Ya To The Snakes
Forsake Ya To The Snakes
Spaz-rock from Milwaukee by way of Fond du Lac by way of Minneapolis. Would later go on to form Worrier and North Dakota.
