Chicago is called the windy city not because of harsh breezes cascading from Lake Michigan, but because of it's raunchy politics. The word Chicago translated means literally, "stinking onion", an endearing term don't you think? Names can be decieving, and in this light Chicago natives Bury Me At Makeout Creek are no different. While their Simpsons referenced name shouts stereotypes the band's music shouts back just as loud to silence them. Taking influence from west coast artists like Forgive Durden, Say Anything, and Minus The Bear, the band has worked hard and long to develop a sound that fits but stands alone in a now populated Chicago indie scene. The baby of this process is the bands debut EP, entitled "From Far Away Across The World." The seven song EP tells a tale all its own. Songs like "Sleeping Quarters" and "The Sky,The Sea,The Dream" speak of ambition and dreams in a way that makes you want to pack a bandana full of clothes to a stick and head out into the world. In contrast, the techy "I Beat The Rubix Cube" expels sarcasm and a bit of anger at big city living and business. Releasing the EP in October, and then finally coming to a conclusive lineup of Cooper Link,Simon Bean,Doug Yamate,Charlie Springer,and Devon Kay, the band is now ready to show its grit. After playing famed Chicago venues the Metro and Beat Kitchen, playing alongside acts like Waking Ashland,Sherwood,Asteria,Logan Square, Showbread,Monty Are I, and touring the midwest, it is safe to say BMAMC is a force that won't be slowing down.
