Chips For The Poor Live from WZRD
September 20, 2011 01:20 PM PDT
Coming all the way from Great Britain to the purple mountains majesty of WZRD Chicago, Chips For The Poor fills yer ears with their gleefully demented shrieks and yelps atop steady catchy thumpin bass, an infectious drum machine, and noisy dual-attack guitars that help add a squirm to yer dance step.
“…skronky piss-taking racket-makers Chips for the Poor […] at times recall the austerity of Wire crossed with the primitive devil-may-care chaos of the Fall.”

WZRD Chicago welcomes Swing Hakim (formerly Doctor Swing) to the studio. Never has a band composed of doctorate-wielding Chicago-area higher education faculty members playing Gypsy Jazz, blues, classical Arabic music, Klezmer, and balkan influenced tunes jammed so hard. Check it out if you dig music along the lines of Django Reinhart, Abe Shwartz, The Polkaholics, Gogol Bordello or anything in between!
[5/5/11]House Sounds Live from WZRD

Chicago's House Sounds bring their often noisy, angular garage rock to the WZRD studio but throw in some groovin rhythms and peculiar melodies as well!Voice of Addiction Live from WZRD

"Voice Of Addiction takes on the attitude the the punk rock revolution instilled in us, but infuses it with ska breakdowns. Sometimes described as a "unique refreshing slant to the rock world." Voice Of Addiction's members put their distinct personalities and experiences into the instruments they play and the music they write. V.O.A.'s music has an immense presence that builds tension and releases it at the most opportune times."Al Scorch's Country Soul Ensemble Live from WZRD Chicago

Al Scorch’s Country Soul Ensemble helped put on a wild hootenanny at WZRD’s Thursday Night Live on April 1st. Fast, sloppy, high energy banjo, drums, and wild punk yelps, and heartfelt wails filled the studio as Al Scorch’s Country Soul Ensemble rock and roll the night with raucous, melodies, old-time tunes, pub chants, and words that don’t leave you with much choice but to sing along and shake a leg.

What do you get when you mix the upbeats of ska, the anthems of punk, and the speed of metal? Waste Basket! And they're coming to you straight from WZRD Chicago!

Ether Feather (Dylan Ryan and Jeremiah Chiu of Icy Demons) let out a long, synthy exhale of ambient soundscapes, vocal and percussive experimentation, and variety of quality ear ticklers.
[March 11, 2010]Kiddy Korral Jug Band Live From WZRD Chicago
March 03, 2010 04:01 PM PST
Kiddy Korral Jug Band took a phonographic timewarp from the pre-internet era to broadcast some musical mischief straight through the fm airwaves and by cable directly to you from the studio of WZRD Chicago. A rag-tag group of hobo clowns, circus freaks, and the devil himself, complete with a washboard, gutbucket, homemade percussion, and several other wacky sounds, bring you both uppity and bluesy tunes from the past along with wild originals.
