Please get acquainted with my favorite band in Chicago, je’raf, who are in my opinion the greatest and most potent synthesis of the past 30 years of experimental independent music in this city. I feel that the best way to understand this band is through all of the many projects of the members that constitute it, so I made this guide to their many approaches to sonic novelty.
Born at Fairview General Hospital in the Year of the Reformation of Pere Ubu, when Jane Scott still ruled the Land. Born of the cybertronic union of Planet E and Channel Z, "getting nothing but static" and techno liberation thru space. I try to imbue music journalism with meaning beyond moving units and I am working on a book about the development and enormous influence of punk and art rock in Northeast Ohio. Hard Femme, more than a bit of an iconoclast. she/her/Miss Sir.
