Kill Chicago


Fredericton-based group Kill Chicago is a blues record played at the wrong speed. They take traditional instrumentation, wrap it around a folk skeleton, and make it dance with 70s Brit punk energy. Not shyly whispered for artists, but bounced off the walls for people from a broke province who deserve a day off. Because the blues are about hard times, punk is about standing your ground, and Kill Chicago is about having a hard time standing your ground.

“When I was young, my brother accidentally knocked the radio off the window ledge in our rural New Brunswick home. Once reassembled, a college radio station puked out punk rock songs, peppered with inside jokes and dead air, since then song have been the most important thing in my life. A few years later, my mother dated a mute farmer who lent her the money to buy me a guitar for Christmas. I thanked him … he said nothing.”

With songs that have been played by jazz musicians, folk purists, electro fiends, and hardcore enthusiasts, Kill Chicago has always been a changing beast.

Kill Chicago brings together all the influences of its changing membership, resulting in an eclectic new sound. Now calling New Brunswick home, Webber solidified a line up of drummer Zach Atkinson, bassist Matt Bowie, and multi-instrumentalist Dillon Anthony.
