On 10/28/2005, Chicago Radio Station Q101 (WKQX), crowned the band "SLIPSTREAM" the most popular band in Chicago’s entire unsigned music scene. Winning by over 1000 votes, Slipstream was played over Chicago airwaves for the very first time. - N/A

The Chicago band SLIPSTREAM will have a special guest performance at this weekend's Music Fest 2000 at Lowe's Campgrounds in Laurel Delaware. This is the third annual festival to both remember the McDowell's daughter, Heidi, who was killed in 1994, and help charities. The Make-A-Wish foundation of Mid-Atlantic Inc. and Special Olympics of Delaware are this year's recipients of portions of the gate proceeds. SLIPSTREAM has a self-titled CD and another one titled Tommy & The Warchild - The Leader & State Register


How fortuitous as "Waiting for the Sound" is exactly the album I have been waiting for! Seven tracks of pure duelling vocals and musicianship; it appears that the band plays against one another whilst ingeniously playing tightly together. The title track is pure street grunge with hints of garage rock, but the mood then changes. "I don't know" is an honest number that ALL aspiring bands should listen carefully to, whereas "Rejected Girl" is where U2 would be today had they remained true to their roots. (Isn't it peculiar how the lead vocalist shares the name Vox in common with Vox Bono? Coincidence, or what!)

This is an album to excite the senses and to tempt one to ask, just like Oliver, for MORE.
Slipstream's members, Vox, Chadrock, Dan, DJay and Dylan will catch you in their jetstream and draw you deeply into their world.

Here we go again. I love to review indie label music. This is the best way to hear new sounds before the industry has a chance to go pouncing about the album and ripping it to radio playable shreds. I slid this little bad boy into the player in my car and turn it up a notch. Much to my surprise and much like the title waiting for me on the other side was a completely unique and convincing sound that I had not heard before. As far as indie music goes, this was definitely a unique experience. The vocals were smooth, then rough, the deliberately harsh, then melodic. The drumming was a definite show of pure rhythmic skill, and the guitars, were just flailing away at every turn. I was intrigued by how they changed up their sound from song to song. Not staying focused on the mainstream style that has so defined the modern indie music scene, but more swiftly jumping into the “slipstream” of difference and exclusivity that bands are starting to cling to in order to break out of the every day scene. This is definitely a band to watch in the coming months. I feel like this could be the best unsigned band of the year thus far. You need to find this album. They can be contacted at www.slipstreammusic.com and also they have a glorious myspace, which is www.myspace.com/theslipstream . And on a side note, the insert to the cd says, that ‘under normal circumstances law prohibits unauthorized duplication of this album. However Slipstream humbly requests that you make copies of it and distribute it among your families, friends, coworkers, acquaintances, complete strangers, enemies, and anyone else you can think of’ to which I firmly believe is the premise for indie music in general--to give freely to all. Cause the music is a gift. - Rev MC - The Phantom Tollbooth

Bio

David Vox Mullen was born on the Southside of Chicago into a very musical and  funny family. His mother was an accomplished vocalist/guitarist and his father was a drummer. David credits his family with pushing him to express himself through music and  performance. By his 21st birthday, he had already written, produced, and performed in various musicals, plays and formed the rock band "The Slipstream". After a decade of touring with the band, Vox has since returned to his comedic acting roots and has been regularly performing Improv Comedy in Chicagoland. In 2017 David will be releasing his first solo EP in over 20 years.
