Record of the Day…Dancer by Heavy Times


Here’s what I know about Chicago’s Heavy Times.

They’ve been around since at least 2010, released three albums (on Rotted Tooth and HoZac) and a bunch of EPs and singles of catchy garage punk noise pop. They’ve been referred to as “Chicago’s most hated band”.

I don’t know the back story to that tag but I do know that their new single – Dancer – (out on Randy Records) is an insanely addictive 80s synth-wave punk gem.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
