The Wildroots Championed by the likes of recording warrior Timothy Powell (Metro Mobile) and Chicago's finest AAA purveyors, 93'XRT, The Wildroots managed to attract a wide range of fans and well-wishers, while opening for legends such as The Replacements and Southside Johnny. "Candy Store" - their only release - appeared on the 1987 compilation, "It Came From Jay's Garage."

Hollus Live At Lilypad (Lilypad 2007), The Joker And The Queen (Wooden Nickel 2009) and Part One (Wooden Nickel 2010) were Lilypad favorites before this evolving quartet went on permanent hiatus. Part Two was an excellent collection, too. It went unreleased.

World Wide Riot Posters Boys For The Apocalypse (Lilypad 2008) The Morris, Illinois duo's debut is a full ashtray of singer-songwriter angst wrapped in chaos.
