We Will Bury You: A Tribute to Killdozer

• -ism CD 0078
• Released Sept. 5, 2006
• Format: CD

We were having a rough time trying to figure out what to say about one of the greatest Midwest bands of the late 80's to late 90's. There is no way to do justice to a band both dead serious and outright funny. A band with so much swagger that was devoted to writing about every day idiocy and doing that with a cutting wit. Instead of fumbling with words, we decided a timeline worked better... 1983-Killdozer forms in Madison, Wisconsin with the line-up of Michael Gerald (bass and vocals), Bill Hobson (guitar) and Dan Hobson (drums). 1996-After dozens of releases primarily, but not exclusively on Chicago's Touch and Go Records, Killdozer plays its final show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Thru its thirteen year career, thousands of live shows spanning North America and Europe and impressive recorded discography Killdozer has attracted a cult following and influenced countless bands to follow. 1997-Devoted friend of the band and -ismist Recordings chief, Dan Schlissel, decides a band as monumental and influential as Killdozer deserves a proper tribute compilation. Bands are asked to contribute and many tracks begin to materialize. 2002-Madison, Wisconsin label Crustacean Records similarly decides the mighty Killdozer deserves a grand tribute compilation. Michael Gerald is contacted who directs Crustacean to colloborate with -ismist. Contact is made and Crustacean Records begins enlisting bands and getting a seconds disc of Killdozer covers recorded. 2006-The compilation is still simmering on the back burner when the news hits that Killdozer is playing a one off reunion show with all original members on Saturday September 9th as part of the Touch and Go 25th Anniversary Celebration. It provides the proverbial requisite kick in the ass to get both labels to get the album to release.
