Product Notes

Marvelkind is an eclectic electronic rock band from Chicago, Illinois, USA. Their music is self-described as \'Gonzo Electro Noise Pop\'[1]and they have been compared to bands such as Devo, Billy Idol, Depeche Mode, The Faint, Brainiac, and Mercury Rev. Marvelkind is notable for their expansive use of keyboards and electronics coupled with extremely frenetic live shows.[2] The band\'s current lineup was formed in the early fall of 1991 in Naperville, Illinois, a large suburb west of Chicago. They formed a relationship with Mercury Rev and Shady front man David Baker in 1996 and during the early winter months of 1996 they recorded the Loofa (I Wish I Was Her)/ I\'m Electro single which was never officially released.[3] Over the next few years, they worked with David Baker and fellow Naperville allumni Justin Rickles, a.k.a J-Rick.[4] their debut EP Mini. Mini was released on Throwrug Records and received a fair amount of critical acclaim. [5] [6] It features guest vocals from Lucky Boys Confusion guitarist/vocalist Adam Krier. [7] The band toured over the next few months and officially relocated to Chicago, IL where they built a home recording studio and began working on their second release. During the years which followed they recorded a number of songs. They contributed a version of \'Trouble\' for the Material Issue compilation CD \'Just What This World Needs\', as well as a Christmas single which was self-release and distributed only to acquaintances and friends. The songs have since been re-released by Volunteer Records on the \'Holiday Heart\' benefit CD.[8] \'Conquering the Universe Chorus Verse\' was the bands first full-length album and was released in 2001. In January 2002 Singer, Benjamin Hughes, relocated to Los Angeles, CA. and the band went on a temporary hiatus. Over the next few years they managed to continue recording and released their second full-length album \'State of the Artificial\' in late 2007. They played a number of shows in Los Angeles and Chicago and are currently working on recording new material, collecting remixes from \'State of the Artificial\', and making videos.
