Chicago indie band the Inventors joins me for encased meats from the underrated Hot Dog Station (4742 N Kimball Ave, Chicago, IL 60625).
Before they played a phenomenal version of their new song (“Apartment”), we chatted about:
- The Inventors’ show on 11/30 at the Underground Lounge (GO SEE THEM!)
- The Inventors history, dating back to high school: “We found the couple (of friends) we liked, and stuck together.”
- Less than a year after their last album, they’re ready to go with a new one. THEY NEVER STOP INVENTING.
- The fantastic Inventors song “10s & 9s,” from where the band’s first album title (“Counting Backwards”) came from.
- Band motto: “Keep it simple, stupid.”
- “Beautiful”: The new song and video
- The new album is self-titled for a reason.
- The Inventors’ homecoming, playing a show in their hometown.
- The new song “Apartment” sounded A-MAZE-ING when they played it live in my car.
