America's sick souls put the creep on in a way that was not too far removed from "handsome." "Suicide Sound System" was their first full-length, followed by records for The Self-Starter Foundation and Suicide Squeeze. Guitar, drums and farfisa are the weapons of choice. Eyeliner? Optional.
"Like a jagged shard of glass coated in honey and sprinkled with rainbow-hued glitter, this Chicago trio makes music that's simultaneously dangerous, showy and tasty. The band's just-released debut outing 'Suicide Sound System' finds it wielding an unorthodox organ-drum-guitar attack in the service of songs that blend dissonant No Wave splutter and hooky garage rock attitude. Florid frontman Anthony Rolando howls out lyrics like Sky Saxon on speed while his bandmates chop through serrated riffs that invariably resolve into ear-catching choruses, creating an odd but effective sound that stands as a welcome dose of unhinged intensity in an often sedate local scene." - Metromix
