I had XMU on earlier this week (XMU is my favorite XM Radio channel) and I heard a clip of Walter Meego. Walter Meego is a band from Chicago made up of Justin Sconza and Colin Yarck (and others, when they’re performing live).
Classic Rock has entire stations dedicated to it. It’s a sound that will forever be copied and toyed with. But don’t usually hear the phrase “Classic Synth” too often. But that’s what I thought of when I heard this. It took me back to Ministry, Voice Farm, Blancmange and other such bands.
Walter Meego makes no bones about its completely electronic sound, but engages with accessible vocals and memorable hooks.
I thought this was good music to hear as you entered your weekend. Check out the song “Forever” (and their website, too, which is pretty fun). Enjoy yourselves…
