Album Notes
A "friends and family" disc from the archives of Atomic Mouse Recordings. The first compilation from the diverse Chicago label. Stylistically, the artists carve a wide swath, but there's a unifying DIY spirit that binds the music together. Hip-hop novelty cuts, edgy guitar bands, electronica, aural experiments, and old-fashioned guys-with-their guitars a-singin' -- it's a fascinating snap shot of musicians and artists doing what they do in their art/music worlds. The proverbial sound in a vacuum.

From Chicago:
El Demento (roots-bent indie rock)
Neptunius of I.L. (hip-hop)
The Cheatin' Wives (insurgent country)
Liam Idiot (hobo rock)
Naked & Shameless (multi-flavored kitsch)
White Ballaz (hip-hop)
Sharkula (hip-hop)
iGod (electronic/techno)
Terse (electronic/techno)
Pimmel (goth-tinged cold wave)
Hedonists, Maybe (jagged art-rock)
Bionic Rat (aural sculpture)

From Ohio:
Matt Moran's Contra Band (quirky lounge-groove)
Zodiak (arty alt-rock)
Baker Street Irregulars (singer/songwriter)
Ye Godz! (spoken experiments)

From Vancouver, Canada:
No Fun (the Beatles of Surrey)*
Deviant & the Clones (punkish noisy stuff)
Six Inches (rock)
Mary (progressive alt-rock)
The New Heads (generally annoying)
David M's Ironic Acronym (the ex-Beatle of Surrey)*

From Elsewhere:
Kyle Bravo (indie auteur)

*yes yes yes, Surrey is it's own thing... let's just make it easy for the 'Mercans, ok?
