Sons of the Silent Age
CHRIS CONNELLY and MATT WALKER are both 30+ year veterans of the music business, Chris having moved from his native Scotland in the 80's to pursue a career in gratuitous volume and outrage with techno rednecks THE REVOLTING COCKS and MINISTRY, Matt bringing his formidable drum skills to the likes of FILTER, SMASHING PUMPKINS, GARBAGE and MORRISSEY.
Matt and Chris were working together on one of Matt's songs when the seed was sewn to start a band dedicated to the music of DAVID BOWIE, the pair always having had a strong connection and affinity with his career, his changing, challenging sound and his aesthetic. A stellar band was assembled, all veterans in their own right with excellent pedigrees, and almost immediately rehearsals were well underway with songs from Bowie's canon that were being selected, played and played with. SONS OF THE SILENT AGE was a living, vital entity.
SONS OF THE SILENT AGE boasts nine members culled from the absolute elite of Chicago musicians - diehard and dedicated souls who love the material and know it intimately, pouring their collective talents over Bowie's 40+ years and 30 albums of dazzling music, music that irrefutably changed the face of rock and an aesthetic so strong it will continue to spread ripples through our culture forever.
New Canyons are a duo Electronic/Shoegaze band based out of Chicago, IL. Teetering on genres of Shoegaze, Dreampop, Electronic, Ambient, & Noise.
The Amazing Heeby Jeebies
Chicago’s favorite rockabilly band The Amazing Heeby Jeebies pays tribute to American punk rock band The Cramps. The Amazing Heeby Jeebies was born in the back seat of a ’63 Caddy tearing down Highway 41. Amazing Ary and Earl "Wolfdaddy" knew they had created something that could be a sinners delight. Neighbors curiosity grew hearing the two bang out what became the foundation of AMAZING HEEBY JEEBIES.
