With the manufactured social collapse of America looming we decided to rise to the occasion. We are turning NITETROTTER up in to high gear. Have no fear, we will be posting daily until we get on some list and the feds shut us down or DAYTROTTER sues us. Somehow in these strange days the former seems more likely than the latter.
CHICAGO, IL - Mr. Forefinger announced today that he will be releasing a highly anticipated split 7" with local t-shirt rockers NONNIE PARRY. The split will be released on the up and coming diy label EXOTIC AQUATIC. The record is due out by the end of the year. Sounds great!

Chicago's PSYCHIC ATTACK is a nice collection of heavy psychedelic improvisation filled with relentless double bass attack, progressive drums, and weird guitar. Tight driving compositions from this band. It almost has an instrumental RUDIMENTARY PENI or deep Greg Ginn Black flag vibe.

These young canadians emailed us about a show and we happily obliged. They put on a great show for their group of fans who came from the far reaches of the north side to our remote compound in Pilsen. Right as this show happened their 7" record on FAT WRECK CHORDS came out which had some kinda of PR bomb attached putting our house all over the pop punk internet. Supposedly Fat Mike found out about them from the real life paraplegic inspiration for the NOFX song "Nubs" who also from Ontario really liked THE DIRTY NIL and passed the record to Mike who fell in love with these boys. Good luck to them with their extremely catchy weird as fuck pop punk. These songs got stuck in my head for weeks.

This is a fine track from LOVE COP featuring EMOTIONAL(MELTED TOYS). Drenching with melancholic vocal melodies with apathetic overtones. This sounds like it could be background music in a dark Pete and Pete episode. Kind of like a child like acid flashback. GNAR TAPES

We'll 2013 was very uneventful for Nitetrotter. Besides Nitetrotter Fest and a handful of videos on the web.
Good news. We are back from the dead. We need new blood. We are building a schwagadelic studio and looking to record.
Everything starts January 1 2014. Time to get off the bong.... kind of.

When I traveled down to shoot this session with Brian who is Health and Beauty, I did not really have anything in mind. We just set up in his lonely living room with him playing on a piano bench. His beautiful and loving dog Betty did the rest. As Brian played some of the most beautiful songs his dog laid softly beside him. The love of the two quickly grew into the fun video session we tracked. During one of the songs the dog completely came up and sat in my lap. It took all of my strength to not burst out last laughing until the song ended and Brian looked up and chuckled. The session then concluded with some drinking of shitty alcohol the neighbors had. We did our best to capture the emotion and talent that Health and Beauty has to offer. Always popping up around town for different shows, Health and Beauty shows are not to miss and will leave you in aww of his spectacular songwriting.
Shot on location at Health and Beauty house in Little Village in Chicago, IL.
