Power Pop and Rock and Roll get naked and steal a car- your car.
Indonesian Junk
Indonesian Junk
Indonesian Junk is a rat rock n' roll combo from the Go-Nowhersville of Milwaukee. Combining elements of early and proto punk, glam, powerpop, and NWOBHM, these three scumbags crank out some dirty, catchy, fast rock n' rollin' hits.

The new band just released four demos in March via bandcamp and are playing all over the Midwest. There's a full length in the works, which will be followed by a more adventerous touring schedule.
Mooner
Mooner
Mooner plays power-pop for the 21st century, melding their signature double lead-guitar attack with deceptively simple pop songwriting that pays homage to Elvis Costello, Big Star and Warren Zevon. The band has been featured on the airwaves via Chicago’s WGN and WXRT, where they were nominated for Best Local Artist. They have collaborated on compilations with Kimya Dawson, shared the stage with The Flamin’ Groovies and James McCartney and played to fans at hallowed Chicago venues like Lincoln Hall, as well as others across the Midwest.

Best of 2015
- WXRT, Chicago, IL

"Repeated listenings revealed a lot more including folk rock ala the Byrds and British Invasion era Searchers and even a smattering of Americana stylings that aren’t far removed from Jeff Tweedy‘s best work."
- Richard Milne, WXRT

“Fully digging this.”
- John Darnielle, The Mountain Goats
Bobby Conn & Monica Boubou
Bobby Conn & Monica Boubou
Musician, misfit, culture warrior and bullshitter: Robert "Bobby" Conn

Bobby has equally delighted and annoyed hipsters since first appearing on the Chicago music scene in the mid '90s. Blending aggressive showmanship with an omnivorous love of musical genres, from Suicide to Streisand or from The Sweet to Stravinsky, Bobby has often irritated and provoked audiences, but never bored them.

Bobby Conn's lyrics document the continuing absurdities of contemporary Western culture, illustrating and celebrating the convenient hypocrisies that allow us to sleep soundly every night. He developed "The Continuous Ca$h Flow System" in 1995 as a critic of the magical thinking that Americans employ concerning their debt fuelled lifestyles. 15 years later, Bobby's "Continuous Ca$h Flow" is revealed as the operating principle of the entire financial system. He has accurately described the Armageddon based world view of America's Christian right since 1996, and tracked its evolution from fringe fanaticism to its current place in the heart of America's political mainstream. But despite the relevance and prescience of his songwriting, his devotion to total entertainment in glitter and heels has confused as many as he has enlightened.

He continues to collaborate with his wife and musical partner, Monica BouBou. Fully his equal as an entertainer herself (and more than his equal in stature), her electrified violin defines the epic melodic reach of their music. The members of his new band, The Burglars, were stolen from the best groups in the Chicago underground today. His recent album "Macaroni" (Fire Records) as a whole capitalizes on Conn’s strengths, both as a political satirist and as a Frankenstein-esque mad scientist specializing in defunct musical genres.
