Cap’n Jazz Reunion is Offical!

Today Jade Tree Records and The Bottom Lounge announced the official reunion of Cap’n Jazz. On June 15th, Jade Tree will be reissuing the bands album Analphabetapolothology. The double LP will be packaged in a deluxe gatefold album jacket with plenty of bonus material not included with the original CD release, including never before seen photos, show fliers, and new liner notes by Tim Kinsella. This may not come as a surprise to those who managed to catch the surprise live set the band played last month, but the band is planning an official reunion show on July 17th at The Bottom Lounge. Cap’n Jazz is frequently recognized as one of the most influential bands every to grace Chicago’s indie scene even though they only had one official release in the seven years they were together. Since their split bands like Joan of Arc and The Promise Ring have formed, and flourished. This is truly a reunion not to be missed.

Fake Fictions Final EP

Fake Fictions played their final show on November 20th, and then went into the studio to record their final four tracks. You can see why the arrival this their final ep, Magic Infinity, is bittersweet. Recorded at Glamour Studios Logan Square with Gerard Barreto and Seth Vanek, these four tracks further exemplify the cleaner sound the band had been perfecting. These tracks guide the band even further into realm of ‘70’s rock and way from the surf-basement pop they had been playing a few years back. However, it is very much present in a track like “(Step Into The) Brite Lite”. This is a wonderfully farewell from a band that has always been drastically underrated.

You can download Magic Infinity for free through the Fake Fiction’s website.

Last Minute Plans: The Cathy Santonies @ Jimmy’s Woodlawn Tap

Punk Rock is so much more enjoyable when four beautiful women deliver it. Riot grrrl perfected, The Cathy Santonies are just one example of a scene that is about to come into the spotlight. Mojo Santoni, Jane Danger, Radio Santoni, and Kaylee Preston these girls have the energy and fire to masterfully pull of the fast paced sound.

The Cathy Santonies will be playing tonight (Feb. 15th) at Jimmy’s Woodlawn Tap and at Liars Club on March 5th.

Yea Big & Kid Static on Daytrotter

Recorded awhile back, the Daytrotter session with Yea Big & Kid Static has finally been posted. The energetic duo recorded three tracks during the session, the Mae-shi version of “Run To The Facts”, “Middle America” from The Future’s Looking Grim, their classic closing song, a cover of “Thank You for Being a Friend” (Golden Girl’s Theme). It’s an interesting selection of tracks. “Middle America” is a great song, but not the most well known track from the latest album, and there hilarious closing track is entertaining, but not really representative of the work in general. Regardless, I am glad to see Yea Big & Kid Static finally getting some buzz and on a larger scale.
