Various Artists – History in 3 Chords: Milwaukee Alternative Bands 1973–1982

“History in 3 Chords: Milwaukee Alternative Bands 1973–1982”

added by on October 3, 2012

We are proud to release this 2 CD compilation (it’s been in print twice, but is currently out-of-print) from Milwaukee’s very own Splunge Communications.

A huge thanks to producers, Clancy Carroll and Jeff Menz, for allowing us to post this killer snapshot of Milwaukee’s independent music scene spanning the years 1973–1982. This compilation is pretty much a blueprint for MKEpunk.

Look for some re-issues from the newly revived Splunge Communications.
