We’re very pleased to announce the signing of Judi Chicago to the Reprise Publishing roster.
JUDI CHICAGO is the sound of the sticky skylines and chickenbone sidewalks of Atlanta.
Since 2006 the trio of multi-instrumentalists James Joyce, Travis Thatcher and British-born ATL transplant Ben Coleman have concocted their surrealist blend of acid house, technicolor glamrock 8-bit bleeps, art-punk, free-association poetics & the beats and breaks of ragga, jungle and classic rave.
JUDI CHICAGO’s reputation as a thrilling, unpredictable live act grows as the group moves the crowd at sell-out shows. JUDI CHICAGO has shared stages with the likes of Battles, Black Kids, Bonde Do Role, Dan Deacon, Datarock and many others, & collaborated with Atlanta-based producer Ben Allen (’St. Elsewhere’ Gnarls Barkley, ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’, Animal Collective) on new songs written for their highly anticipated second album, ‘Bright Lights, Fun City’.
It’s their most complete release to date, opening up exciting new realms of the JUDI CHICAGO universe for intrepid listeners in search of the fresh and new!
“That’s funny, ’cause I was just wondering when kids in Georgia were going to start making insane ’88-style acid house with fake English accents in bands named after misspelled 70s feminist artists.” – Vice Magazine
“Atlanta disco-scuzz hooligans deliver the line of the year: “We’re gonna get naked and watch Cops.” We’re so there, dudes!” – Blender Magazine
“Deadpanned rhymes follow Beck-like abstractions to odd and eloquent conclusions, and the beats reference early house, techno and electro while keeping it coarse around the edges. This concoction works well, as everything gets delivered with a nod, a wink and some extra bite” – Remix Magazine
“As if a million metronomes were beating your brain with a foot of raw salami.” – CMJ Magazine
“A gleefully charismatic 21st century strut that sounds like the missing link connecting Sly Stone, Johnny Rotten, the Happy Mondays and Art Brut.” Insite Atlanta
