Though the DWIGHT TWILLEY BAND only had one hit (individually he had another on his own), TWILLEY and writing partner PHIL SEYMOUR created an enduring and highly memorable brand of power pop that blended Beatles-esque pop and Sun rockabilly "slapback" echo. TWILLEY and his band appeared on American Bandstand before releasing their classic debut album Sincerely, which featured Top 20 Billboard song "I'm On Fire."  Though only a fraction of the band's early output was made available at the time, these records are highly revered by power pop aficionados. Oak Park's own PEZBAND formed in 1971 and are one of the best rock'n'roll bands you've never heard of. The trio is reuniting this year for a tour around the UK and their first ever tour to JAPAN this year and we couldn't feel any prouder to host them before TWILLEY and his band take the stage. Last year GAMES released one of those records you won’t know how you’ve lived without, and you probably have no idea how bad you need it. HoZac released the album and it's pure pop bliss, a crystal-clear shot in the arm to the current state of rock’n roll, a genuine reflection, an instant hit, and something for New Yorkers to be proud of. Playing fast and loose with garage rock snottiness on their EP Meet the Sueves, out last summer via Dowager Records, THE SUEVES open the final night of this year's Blackout Fest - another one for the ages, folks.

    HoZac Blackout Fest 2013

    Punk

    With a hint of punk pioneers like the Stooges, Chrome sets the stage with a feedback heavy performance that leans towards the chaotic. Sometimes rough and course and mixing distorted synthesized noise with distorted punk, Chrome is often cited as a forerunner of industrial music. THese guys are legends and have been making music since the 70s. Not to be missed at this year's HoZac Blackout Fest at the Bottle!

    GAMES

    Pop

    This is one of those records you won’t know how you’ve lived without, and you probably have no idea how bad you need it. A pristine, timeless pop album with all the subtleties and effervescence of those misty classics of the Pre-Punk Powerpop era, constructed and rebuilt into an airtight, flawless specimen of the original form. Not that you’d expect any less from the purveyor behind Sing Sing Records, but Jeremy Thompson has been honing this sound for years now, previously in the frantically jagged Busy Signals and the early incarnation of the Carbonas, along with longtime cohort Dave Rahn, whose production of the debut GAMES LP is nothing short of breathtaking. Taking the same cues as The Raspberries, Big Star, Rockin’ Horse, Shoes, and Milk ‘N Cookies did well before the codification of New Wave, GAMES is a crystal-clear shot in the arm to the current state of rock’n roll, a genuine reflection, an instant hit, and something for New Yorkers to be proud of.

    Along with such an compelling collection of original songs comes something you don’t see as often as you used to, a couple of great covers that get your gears turning, digging in to check out the origins, a la the mid-90s punk explosion when every new record left a trail of breadcrumbs to discovering your next obscure 70s overlooked obsession. This is important, and all bands need to rethink this stance, not to mention sharing your bounty of knowledge on the rest of us, always starving for MORE. GAMES serves up two here, from Apostrophe and Sage, both with new life breathed into each, and both done up so well, so streamlined, they fit in perfectly with the sound GAMES is here to play, which means we all win. – Victimoftime.com

  • The Sueves

    The Sueves

    Garage Punk

    Here is an expert from his 2013 rock.doc titled ‘Eternal verses/beyond meat space/count zero interrupt’

    “Through mystic rock’n’roll music and the power of sound, the Sueves intend to bring all listeners into the flock of the Yog-Sothoth. Their verses intend to worship the coming of the son. Like sigils made from pure sound, the Sueves ancient tunes reignite the primal and true self. Our reverence to their chorus is focused into a laser like knifepoint all in the name of the great deceiver. They’re cool tho, the Sueves will rock you. The Sueves will guide you. The Sueves are past, present and forever and ever. Happynocops2013."
