Event Details
“In a time in which no band seems to permanently part ways,
the return of The Championship is one of the more-welcomed reunions around these parts. The band hangs its hat on careful songwriting and the thick and throaty pipes of front man Joe Crockett. If you missed The Championship in its first tour of duty, make sure not to miss the train again.
” – Inside Milwaukee

“If the apocalypse really is nigh, Head On Electric is ready. The album-opening title track from the Milwaukee power trio’s debut Sleep Slaughter Sheep is pummeling punk rock that spits like hardcore and gallops like coked-up country. It sounds like a pack of leather-clad demon steeds stampeding into the bowels of hell—or what such a thing would presumably sound like, anyway—and Head On Electric stays pointed toward a deeply dangerous and darkly sexy underworld for the remainder of the LP. The pace slows on the crab-walking “Poison Toad” and the creepy-crawly psych-rock of “Up To You (Lounge),” which conjure the spirits of the band’s fast-and-loose forbearers, the Monks and 13th Floor Elevators.
There’s even a rare moment of jangly beauty on the standout track“Through The Cobwebs.” But whenever the rhythm section of drummer Cole Juntila and bassist Steve Deau starts to plod a bit too much, singer Erik Oley’s slashing guitar furiously clanks out another maniacal melody that kicks Slaughter back into overdrive.” Steve Hyden, Onion AV Club
