“From the dirty streets of Chicago to your bedroom”, this is what newcomers Mickey screamed over the top of their gritty guitar riffs for their recent HoZac Records radio spot. Whether or not Mickey’s view of Chicago is grounded in reality or not is not really the point, their back-alley garage punk sound is what has landed them on label that is also home to the like minded blog darlings The Smith Westerns. With scream-sing vocals from Mac Blackout, aggressive drumming from Christmas Woods, or the contribution from Mick Swagger, Dirty D, or Brent, the band is playing an angle, but has the talent to match.
HoZac announced this morning via twitter that they are releasing the bands debut 7” “She’s So Crazy”, and I would image they would have copies with them as they take the stage tonight at The Whistler for The CHIRP Radio Benefit. Modern Primitives are also performing tonight. The show starts tonight 9:30pm.
