White Mystery, Trophy Wives, Bad Star

White Mystery

White Mystery is brother-sister rock'n'roll duo Miss Alex White & Francis Scott White from Chicago, founded on April 20, 2008. The ginger sibling duo have written, recorded and played non-stop since their inception, releasing 7"s with Hozac and Whistler Records, self-releasing two LPs, pogoing with the kids on Chic-A-Go-Go, touring round the world, and earning rave reviews from national and local publications – MTV, WBEZ, VICE, the Onion – and the list goes on. The WHITES released their third full-length, Telepathic, on April 20th, 2013 and continue their domination of old-school, ass kickin' rock'n'roll.

Trophy Wives

"“Weight” and “volume” are terms usually reserved for science, but with Trophy Wives they’re an art. The Louisville, KY-based four-piece’s dark, sweaty rock cribs its moves from Birthday Party-esque post-punk, Kyuss-like stoner grooves, and Jesus Lizard-like rhythm section gnarl in equal measure, going unpredictably but consistently for either your gut or your throat. Make no mistake: they’re going to hit you hard and kick your ass, but at least you’re going to have a good time rolling with the punches." -Johnny C., www.prfbbq.com

First conceived in the summer of 2007 by veterans of many of their city's more noteworthy and distinguished bands of recent years, Louisville, Kentucky's TROPHY WIVES has established themselves as a veritable force to be reckoned with in their own right, on their own terms. Vocalist/guitarist Billy Bisig (Elliott, Lords) and bassist Tony Ash (Coliseum, Nixon), frustrated with the demise or inactivity of some of their former projects and the directions in which some of the others were heading, got together and began writing and demoing numerous songs in their shared warehouse practice space over a particularly hot and humid Kentucky summer. Within a few short months, having written an abundance of material, drummer Geoff Paton (Young Widows, Breather Resist) was enlisted as a full time member. Countless shows later, having won the praises of diverse and enthusiastic crowds both in their hometown and beyond, the then three-piece band found a kindred spirit in second guitarist and southern California transplant Elliott Turton. Many tours and whiskey shots later, shortly after the release of their debut full length, Old Scratch, on Milwaukee's Latest Flame Records, Turton left the band to devote his time and energy elsewhere, and was replaced by fellow miscreant Robby Scott (Christiansen, By the Grace of God). With their lineup firmly in place, the quartet has forged a highly distinctive sound, accentuated by Bisig and Scott's dual guitar interplay, calling to mind both the hook-laden riffs of Portland punk legends the Wipers and the heavy grind of stoner metal godfathers Kyuss, while displaying an obvious appreciation for classics such as ZZ Top and Led Zeppelin. The Wives' airtight rhythm section, a combination of Ash's gnarled, razor-sharp basslines and Paton's thunderous, Neanderthal drumming, owes a major debt to Touch and Go powerhouses the Jesus Lizard and Laughing Hyenas. These basic but essential ingredients, combined with Bisig's raspy vocal delivery, make up an overall sound that is simultaneously pummeling and inviting, explosive and subdued, always seemingly teetering on the threshold of chaos while maintaining a degree of unparalleled precision.
