Springfield Illinois' Food & Money formed in the waning years of the 1970's. They were a
musical fish out of water among the honky-tonkin' bar-rocking cover bands of central
Illinois circa 1979. Not content with the ubiquitous middle of the road FM radio rock of
their peers, Food & Money played absurd, funky, socially conscious, sarcastic new wave
and were pioneers of weird in the mostly conservative midwest scene.
Food & Money played Chicago's early new wave scene with appearances at TUTS (along
side the Corrosives and the Lubricants!). They headlined the first Vertabrats show in
Champaign / Urbana's burgeoning power pop scene. They also made appearances in
St Louis and played live on public access TV. During their original run they recorded one
7'' EP and a live cassette album.
Includes full color insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes.
