An interview with Jestin Korleski from Grey Matter Mechanics
by Mike Huberty
April 2012

With several hundred songs in their repertoire ranging from jazz to hard rock, Janesville’s GREY MATTER MECHANICS, has a legitimate stake in claiming to be the most diverse musical trio in Wisconsin. Began in 2010 from the ashes of popular alt-rock/trip-hop outfit, SALVA ME, guitarist/vocalist Jestin Korleski and bassist Josh Dissmore begun their jazz trio to just play out and get some paying gigs, over time they started working to bring their original rock songs into the mix as well. They just released their first CD full of that original material called “Black and White”.

Between their hard work, unparalleled live performances, and brand new EP, Growing is easily becoming one of Madison’s finest, rising bands.

An interview with Dave Bonson, organizer of Grrrls Kick Ass Fest
by Mike Huberty
August 2016

Forget the Lilith Fair, we’ve got something way better in Madison, GRRRLS KICK ASS FEST. Put together by local musician Dave Bonson, it’s the fourth year of a special female-centric show that features women in diverse acts like Milwaukee’s Annie B from THE COMPLICATION and Madison’s prog star Sarah Longfield in THE FINE CONSTANT. We talked with Dave about the show on September 4th.

MI: What gave you the idea for Grrrls Kick Ass Fest in the first place?

DB: When I was young a friend of mine introduced me to Bikini Kill. From there I went on to listen to Bratmobile, Sleater-Kinney, L7, X-Ray Spex and so on. I was hooked. I loved riot grrrl music. The attitude, overall confidence, and passion for what they believed in. They weren’t singing songs about fucking (although, that’s a great Big Black album) and they weren’t singing songs about how awesome it is to party and get fucked up. They were singing about what they believed matters and the way they did it too, you knew they meant every word. It was a huge inspiration to me for starting a festival like this.

Guided By Voices

June 2002

“Eh, I’m getting old,” causally remarked Robert Pollard, referring to his recent on-stage back injury from his home in Dayton, Ohio. The 44-year-old, former elementary school teacher is the singer, songwriter, and only permanent member of Guided By Voices, one of the greatest bands that most radio-friendly ears have never even heard of. But once exposed to the Guided By Voices empire, many will become borderline worshipers. Magnet magazine publisher Eric T. Miller has said that Pollard has written more great songs than the Beatles, the Who and the Rolling Stones combined. Last year, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown went as far as declaring April 3, 2001 “Guided By Voices Day” in the city. In an age of utterly disposable bands like Limp Bizkit selling millions of records, this well-merited praise comes to a band that, after 17 years, finally made it to the billboard top 200 last year, peeking at 168.

Guido’s Racecar

October 2008

Somewhat on-again off-again band, Guido’s Racecar has been on-again since 2007. Made up of Roni Allwaise on vocals, Mike Hoffman on guitar, Johnny Washday on bass and fellow Max Ink writer, Lane Klozier on drums, this relatively low-key “kinda glam & kinda punk [band]” as Allwaise calls it, had its start back in 1998. I had the opportunity to speak with Roni Allwaise.
