I was trying to catch up on my reading about bands featured on WXPN’s My Morning Download and came across a band from Bucks County, Pa., strangely named Illinois. Yep, the band took the name of a state.
Because of my ties to the Bucks County area, I decided to check them out…and you know what? They’re pretty good.
Illinois consists of:
Martin Hoeger-bass,backing vocals
Dru Lee-guitar,keys,backing vocals
The band is on Ace Fu Records and has an EP scheduled for release March 6, 2007.
Here’s an MP3 sample: “Alone Again” by Illinois
