Definitely one of the best bands in Chicago or anywhere, Assassins are playing tonight at Metro. Though it’s not yet released, their current album is just fantastic. So for now the only way to hear it is live.

    I second that enthusiastically and have written much about Joe and the gang over the years.

    Why are they not superstars yet?

    WOW. Went to their Myspace page.

    That music sucks harder than anything I’ve ever heard before. This should be used to torture terrorists. Nobody would need to be castrated anymore, just listen to this and your testosterone vanishes.

    They seemed to be left out of the up-and-coming Chicago Indie-star mix. I guess they need to drop Kot some scratch to get in the press.

    More background on the band “>here.

    They get left out because they tend to work behind the scenes for the most part perfecting what they do rather than playing every show that comes their way like some other bands around town Kot is in love with right now

    everyone has different tastes, tony.

    unfortunately i just couldn’t get into wrigleyville last night.

    tankboy: they at least need more albums. i saw one (looked like) EP-length last time i saw them, and shoulda picked it up then. or did they just not have their whole discography with them?

    I went to their myspace site for a listen, but it wasn’t working too well. Anywhere else that has a sample?
