Illinois John Fever

Illinois John Fever comes from Iowa, and they play prewar/post-punk blues. Maybe it sounds familiar but more aggressive than it used to be played—polyrhythmic and punchy, a kind of music that brings people together for all the stomping. Today they are a three-piece with Lute Tucker on guitar and vocals, Bobber Hall on percussion, and Dustin Busch on his whizbang Czech-made Dobro. "Now is Not the Way It Is" marks the band's first release and rounds off six months of working fresh material and bringing a second guitar into the mix. They are currently booking the Midwest, Colorado, and Pacific Northwest.
