Chicago’s Walking Bicycles have been making their own brand of bombastic and peculiar music since 2004. Their upcoming full-length is due out August 12, 2014 on the band’s owned and operated label, Highwheel Records. Walking Bicycles bring listeners into a world imbued with struggles, failures and life's unforgiving nature; yet there are glimpses of acceptance, understanding and peace that only come from experience.
Walking Bicycles sound has been described as...
”evoking early, abrasive Siouxsie and the Banshees and even touching on Clinic's more frenzied forays into noise pop.” - THE ONION
"eccentric noise-pop" - MAGNET MAGAZINE
"caustic and unconventional post-punk" - CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Absolutely Not
Absolutely Not
"Absolutely Not are absolutely fab! ‘ERRORS’ is a punk record dialed into an alien frequency with a heavy production that makes the spare instrumentation (guitar, keyboards, drums) sound like a spaceship crashing into Earth. " - NPR
"Absolutely Not is laughing and screaming at the same time, with the Chicago-based post-punk outfit regularly interlacing a kaleidoscopic strain of humor into loud, furious riffs plucked from the hottest pits of hell." - CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

"Led by do-it-all front man Donnie Moore, the band plays infectious quick-hit garage punk that's loaded with hooks upon hooks."

"Absolutely Not is the brainchild of Donnie Moore and generates infectious one-two beat punk chords. It's an Iggy Pop meets Kevin Barnes approach to jagged garage-rock." - TIMEOUT
DJs Scary Lady Sarah and Philly Peroxide
