Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

IKE REILLY

POISON THE HIT PARADE

2008-04-01

Chicago native Ike Reilly lists Bob Dylan, The Clash, and Judas Priest as influences, and its apparent in his music. Great lyrics, predictable and ubiquitous melodies and intonations along with a strange concoction of angst rock from the past five decades. Songs about high school love and football games along with tunes of disgruntled factory workers’ rebellion against the union and blowing up trains.
