FREE TICKETS / VINYL: Crushed Out - Reggie's Music Joint Chicago - TONIGHT Friday 10/26

MCB is taking a roadtrip and heading west to check out Crushed Out who skipped Detroit and are playing Chicago tonight Friday, October 26 at Reggie's Music Joint.  They call their sound "honkytonk surf rock" and the guitarist/singer is really great his dad was in the first white band signed to Motown Label.  Great touch and sound and uses old gear and knows how to get the sound.

Crushed out used to be called BOOM CHICK and they played a show here in town a few months back and kicked ass!

email for your shot at a pair of guest list spots or a limited edition 7" vinyl and signed posters!

Crushed Out will be releasing their debut full-legnth, Want to Give, out Nov. 6, 2012 on their own Cool Clear Water imprint.  Want to Give is a pure guitar/drum adrenalin rush - plenty of fuzz, tremolo, riffs, chunky chords, slide and Black Sabbath power chords. The album references The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Bo Diddley ? they also throw in the occasional surf and early garage riff. Want to Give is a testament to Frank and Moselle's  love for early American rock & roll, surf guitar and country blues -- what Bob Dylan called the "atomic era" of rock & roll. 

Frank came out of the So-Cal skate punk scene and learned his way around a recording studio (as well as his wariness of record labels) from his father, a musician who was in the first white band signed to Motown Records.  Moselle grew up in New Hampshire and is a former junior Olympic downhill skier who later studied graphic design. She produces all of Crushed Out's distinctive artwork, videos, posters and merchandise and makes a lot of her own stage clothes. 

check them out on tour with John Spencer Blues Explosion in the coming months
