Emergency! Get Randy Mantooth on your stereo, stat! Three friends, two brothers, and one enormous sound sum up the vital information on this Chicago power trio of indie rock. Michael Pritchard (otter petter) writes tunes on his guitar that cut as clean as a scalpel. Nate Lindsey (highplanes) on bass and William Pritchard (otter petter) on drums complete the triangulation of rock ‘n’ roll triage.
BABY MONEY & THE DOWN PAYMENTS
Baby Money and her backing band, The Down Payments, are a Windy City 3-piece that performs original rock ‘n’ roll with a soulful, vintage twist. Heavily inspired by garage rockers and girl-groups of the1960s and 1970s, soul, gospel, and traditional rhythm ‘n’ blues, Baby Money writes heartfelt songs punctuated by tight vocal harmonies, reverb-soaked electric guitar, Motown inspired bass lines, punchy drums and a west coast, surfy surrealism. Baby Money was born in the Rust Belt before it rusted over, behind the mirror and in the belly of a great beast – a wild west futuristic Wednesday Addams, a Firestarter. She speaks languages, plays instruments, carries cash, and is very excited for this moment. And also this one. Baby Money loves your face.
Jumpsuit is the name of an American rock and roll band from Chicago, Illinois. Together since the late 1970s when they were little more than Casio and tambourine street performers, Jumpsuit has gone on to release several 7-inch singles throughout the 90s and 2000s, as well as a full-length compact disc in 2005. Jumpsuit also stars in a television cartoon series that relates their trials and tribulations that come as a result of discovering a time machine. In the series, the members of Jumpsuit attempt to use their time machine to right past wrongs and regrets in their lives; however they are usually foiled by mechanical doppelgängers that follow them through the fourth dimension. Jumpsuit's live rock shows are often presented as live-action recreations of events from the cartoon.
Debut solo release from Rob Bochnik, guitarist with The Frames, ranges in style between: finger-style acoustic, rocking americana, good old style indie rock, and a hint of blues.
