Daemon Familiar
Daemon Familiar
Daemon Familiar is a Chicago-based trio that revels in the power pop tradition of catchy melodies and harmonies backed by roaring guitars, growling bass and thumping drums. Their second album, Brontosaurus Rex, exemplifies this as the band draws heavily from their stockpile of influences, including Cheap Trick, Hüsker Dü and Sloan.

Percolator was born in a shack in the late 1500's. After imposing the Helsinki Safe Handling Code of 1720, Percolator was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but was later confined to an iron lung and was visciously accused of being sort of late sometimes. Despite confirmed reports of sightings outside the Percolator Estate in Hamburg, Percolator in fact died in a hilarious whaling accident in May of 1391.

I Lost Control
I Lost Control
"I Lost Control should appeal to anybody that likes gloomy British music from the ’80s, but they’re a little more interesting than most of their immediate peers"
- OSWALD HOBBES, Assault The Weekend

Our output is something edgy and interesting, along the post-punk revival vein; average listeners and dedicated old-school indie-fans enjoy our shows.

** Formed in early 2008, Chicago IL.

Entering its second iteration, I Lost Control is rockin' as strong as ever.

Stevo continues to lead the charge with 360s, knee drops and angel wings on stage. First lieutenant Tennent backs him up on lead axe, walking the fine line between subtle hooks and uncontrolled feedback. He remains the band's genuine gloomy British connection.

Tina L Sunny joins them to add a wealth of Indiana indie rock heritage on the bass. She also brings stunning good looks and an innate knowledge of herbal remedy cures. This is why the faint scent of peppermint pervades every I Lost Control show.

The band rounds out with a percussive story that has beginnings in 1981 Athens, GA. JB spent the next twenty years wandering around the US with his paint brushes and drum sticks before chancing upon the I Lost Control 'Factory' studio. He needed a band. They needed a drummer. They all loved German meat balls and schnapps.

Thus, they became four.

** Now...

I Lost Control's 2011 debut EP Cones & Arrows is floating around cyber space and available at choice Chicago music shops such as Laurie's Planet Of Sound, Hard Boiled Records, and Reckless. We have two full-releases worth of material on the books.

Much more to follow…
