A local band hailing from Milwaukee’s south side is giving surf music a unique update. With their debut album We Come In Peace, The Revomatics have picked up where classic California rock-n-roll left off.

  Rachel Owens interviewed Milwaukee’s own Lex Allen singer/songwriter when he stopped by the WUWM@Nite studio. He performed a few tracks from his E.P. Anonymous Vibes with  two other members of the New Age Narcissism "Non-Family" Q the Sun and Lorde Fredd33 helping out.

What does it take to make it into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Museum? Well, not being to base it off of any sort of personal experience, the next best thing would be to look at the career of a band that made it right? Better yet, a band from the great Midwest that has been creating music since the early 1980’s.

After years of making rounds at music festivals, bars and other miscellaneous concert venues, a Milwaukee alt. country and roots rock band is gearing up for their first full length release. Great Lake Drifters are about to put themselves on your music radar with their upcoming album, Radio Picture Show. With a sound that never quite sits contently within one genre, the band is able to maintain the attention of your ears.

The Living Statues Come To Life

Hold on to your hat people. That is the first and last word of advice I have. They are The Living Statues, a rock n’ roll trio based here in the Cream City. They mix the pop sensibilities of the British Invasion with “explosive garage rock textures.”

Such a large amount of the music, in any genre, has become so strictly defined and crafted that it has become diluted to the point of sameness. This makes it all the more refreshing to have artists like Willy Porter who can’t be pigeonholed. Porter, a Milwaukee native has had an incredibly enduring music career; spanning over two decades in length. Unquestionably talented, with powerful vocals and masterful guitar work, it’s a wonder as to why he has remained something of a ‘hidden gem’.

From cover band to creating their own dark, explorative, introspective work, Milwaukee band “Panalure” releases their new album ‘The Bones’. Being their third musical effort, the band has had time to craft and hone their sound, playing to the strengths of each member. Their sound has graduated to new levels over the past few years as they have become a more cohesive unit and finally establishing the well-written stories they want to tell.

A bluesy, classic-rock sound is rolling out of the Midwest. With a sound that could fit into categories with bands like The White Stripes, The Black Keys and The Rolling Stones, Milwaukee-based band, The Delta Routine, is definitely on to something. With a style that borrows from so many genres and bands, the group makes sure that they can’t be put under any one category exclusively. Their sound is fresh, rough, charging, infectious and incredibly unique.

There are plenty of photographers over the years who made their name with iconic images of rock stars.
