"Evasive Backflip has a knack for creating music that feels awkward without trying to be awkward, and manages this without ever completely abandoning all sense of melody. Their latest single, with its appropriately oddly clumsy title, takes a proggy, math framework and tilts it with a bit of punk sentiment and spastic oddities. Over its five minute run, 'Orange You Glad to See Orange You?' feels everything from urgent to lackadaisical, from sporadic to calculated."
-Local Loop Chicago
The Western is a rock and roll band of men who currently reside in the great city of Chicago. The band can be grouped into a handful of genres: rock, alternative rock, progressive rock, and possibly additional, less-talked about genres of rock. Probably the most applicable description of The Western, however, is this: they are good live.
Homer Marrs is a Chicago-based musician, actor and writer. He started writing music in the early aughts, primarily for comedy shows and open mics. After years of that he decided to step it up a notch. The Excellent Adventure is the non-heinous live band with which he makes music.
