EFFIGIES- 'Reside' CD
EFFIGIES- 'Reside' CD. Formed in early 1980, the EFFIGIES were one of Chicago’s first punk rock bands. Along with NAKED RAYGUN and STRIKE UNDER, the EFFIGIES were instrumental in developing what became the dominant sound in the first generation of Chicago punk. Rising from a long dormancy and as loud as ever, Chicago’s punk legends return in force with "Reside"; their fourth album and first full-length release in over 20 years. With 10 new songs and original art and concepts, "Reside" is an album of the present time and place, yet it draws strongly on the EFFIGIES own legacy as a hard-hitting punk band with charging melodies and flint like lyrical incisiveness. It’s all here with agressive guitar hooks, pounding rhythms and poignant songs about love, death and dirty politics. "Reside" will surprise new fansand confirm what old fans already know.
