FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MOTHER ELECTRIC
ANNOUNCE SPRING 2009 TOUR
Chicago garage rockers will play The Bottom Lounge before tearing up the Midwest
"Gnash your teeth and spit out the shards. Mother Electric is bringing back the gritty art form of rock n' roll. No bells, no whistles, no haircuts, just guitars, last calls, and the dawning genesis of rock music being what it should be." --MP SHOWS
After they blow the amps at the Bottom Lounge at the end of January, Chicago's own Mother Electric, with a handful of demos and a vinyl-only single, will embark on a two-month-long tour to take their vibrant, youthful brand of blues-rock to the rest of the Midwest.
The four-piece's deep affection for and understanding of old time rock 'n' roll drives their rough, guitar-driven sound, which equally evokes the sawdusty floorboards of a Texas roadhouse and the dark, sweaty clubs of swinging London. They are neither concerned with reinventing the wheel nor with the nuances of retro-chic. Rather, they are driven by what they see as an obsessive mission to spend as much time as possible playing rock 'n' roll.
These are young men with old souls, embracing the simplicity of analog rock while facing forward. Their plan will take shape this year in the release of three 7" vinyl singles throughout 2009. Showing some DIY industry-savvy, Mother Electric will release these singles on vinyl only, with digital downloads available to accompany the records.
Mother Electric are:
Thaddeus Cosgrove: Lead guitar, vocals
Jason Ewers: Vocals, guitar
Jeffrey Philippe: Drums, vocals
Stephen Smoker: Bass, vocals
Mother Electric are available for interviews and for in-house electric or acoustic performances. For more information, please contact Caroline Evans.

Bio

Chuck Berry's piano player, legend, Johnnie Johnson, put his arm on our drummer, Jeff, and said, "I won't be here much longer, boy, you need to keep the music alive." We have all embraced this as a call to arms. We are doing it for Johnnie and everyone else before us, and most importantly, for the people.

We rock not to seek fame, rather because we have to. We have not chosen Rock N' Roll, it chose us, we have merely submitted ourselves to it and take the time to hear its calls. Its forces floating through the ether have found each of us and have driven us together. We are another link in the chain.

We carry on our shoulders now the passions and will of those that have come before us and soldier with us to create Rock n' Roll in its purest form. We do not think about playing Rock N' Roll music we simply open our mind's eye and allow it to drive us forward.

If you want us to come play in your living room or local club let us know, we will. If you don't understand what we are trying to do, let us know, we will teach you. If you have a case of beer that you just can't finish, let us know, we will finish it. If you are musically lost in a world where crazy dance beats have your head spinning, let us know and we will show you the ways of rock music.

Rock N' Roll saves lives and possesses souls. We, Mother Electric are one of many vessels to sail it's rocky seas never to arrive, only to move forward weathering storm after storm.
