Still working on that hot first release.



Pinebocks is the worst band in Chicago...yet the best band in the world. William Faulkner once said "Do what makes you feel good," and for Pinebocks, rock 'n roll is what. Started by Half-White singer/songwriter Cory Clifford, Pinebocks is a poetic glam pop group full of sing-alongs, and full of shit. "They're like Bob Dylan, for the Soulja Boy generation,"(Pitchfork; 4.6/10). The guitar slinging of Devin and Mike are a sensation, that only Puerto Rican men could provide. Jonathan "The Dragon" Mondragon slays on rock bass, creating the 'high art' expectations, the humble group needs. The drummer, Jake; drums so well, you might catch a tear. Lastly, we have the frontman, Cory Clifford, who tries hard to reinvent the wheel, but looks classless doing it. Get ready cause Pinebocks is gonna be your new *favorite* band to hate to love.
