JUDI CHICAGO exists in a parallel universe where beef burgers can rap and alcho-pop whippets puke neon hues over the pavements of the weekend.

Jason Cauge – Guitar JARGON started out as a more or less noise ridden, live hard rock band, better known as, for some reason, alternative, which they don’t think that they really are, but at the time everything not usual was called alternative. In 1998 JARGON released their self-titled debut, “Jargon” (produced by Robinson Eikenberry) on Lobster Records. It wasn’t punk, it wasn’t hard-core or goth but it was moody and it rocked. JARGON, of course, thought their record was mainstream.

Chicago party animals, Mahjongg, originally from Columbia, MO, may be nearing the top of Chicago's 'local band' heap, but if you haven't heard of them yet it's probably because their music has made it quite difficult for locals to nail them down in a 'scene.' Mahjongg's shows are always ragers, which often leads attendees to shove (or drop) the actual musicianship from their memories - a shame since they're onto something pretty damn cool.
