Thunderbird Wine Presents: Guerrilla Ghost (Record Release) • Devils Teeth • Taiyamo Denku • Taj Raiden • Nicholas Elert • Dope Folks’ DJs

Guerrilla Ghost is a Milwaukee-based hip-hop duo brought together by their love for rap as well as more aggressive sounds (both come from having played in metal and hardcore bands), On Black Friday, the band will prepare to release their debut album, Perpetually Sad Motion Machine.

Guerrilla Ghost

(Milwaukee, WI)

Guerrilla Ghost have proven to be one of Milwaukee’s more consistently prolific acts in the last few years. From their formation in 2016, the group (which consists of producer Tron Jovi and rapper Bad Graphics Ghost) has had little downtime and have released a steady output of singles and EPs each year. 2018 saw the group release their debut full length album, Perpetually Sad Motion Machine, which found the group focusing their eclectic influences into a cohesive singular thought.

Not ones to miss an opportunity for being creative, the group spent the following year and a half (most notably the Shelter-In-Place order that began in spring of 2020) working on their sophomore effort. Set for a July 31 release date, We Get What We Deserve exhibits a continued growth and maturity from a group committed to not repeating themselves.

Devils Teeth

(Milwaukee, WI)

Devils Teeth came together as a lean but efficient three-piece in 2016, with Jon Hanusa on vocals and guitar, Eric Arsnow on vocals and bass, and Chuck Engel on drums. Dropping the apostrophe “just because”, the band quickly found themselves sharing the stage with notables like Dick Dale, The Blind Shake, Local H, The Toxenes and Left Lane Cruiser. After releasing some lo-fi rehearsal tracks, the band set to work on their debut in the summer of 2017 — aiming to be more than a traditional garage rock throwback. Channeling inspiration from Brucesploitation and Herschall Gordon Lewis films as well as surf and psychedelic sounds from decades past, the band holed up in Arsnow’s sweaty basement to self-produce the album. Months later, the band emerged with ten songs that blend the reverb-drenched energy of surf rock with the dissonance of post-punk and the theatrics of Spaghetti Western soundtracks.
