"Punk and ska do a drunken slam dance when Madison's 4 Aspirin Morning takes the stage." - Madison Isthmus
Born at the bottom of a 40 oz and raised on an 80s and 90s record collection, The 4 Aspirin Morning (4AM) kicks open the cellar door and resurrects the underground punk/ska scene. The 4AM combines hard rock sensibilities with the grittiness of 80s punk and the catchy hooks of early 90s ska. The result: a wave of guitars that collides with a storm of horns to create a fresher, darker, more aggressive sound.
This strange brew fuels a wildly energetic show that will have you grooving to basslines one minute and skankin' in the pit the next, all the while pumping your fist to the chants of every chorus.
The 4AM formed in early 2009, the result of a group of 8 musicians brought together by a classified ad. Their sound was painstakingly refined little by little in a small second story flat above a modest bike shop.
After the departure of the original bassist, drummer, and second singer in 2010, the spots were filled by Drew Ferguson (bass) and Jon Kussow (drums). The backing vocals were taken up as second duty by the horn line, consisting of Joey Underfuck (trumpet), Stranger D. Davenport (trombone) and Thumbmaster Mooney (sax). Steev was replaced by epic Shred-machine LeX, who recently departed for the more fertile pastures of Silicon Valley. Shredding duties are now split between a veritable who's who of Madison's best string melting wizards, including D-rock of Tiger Clutch, Killer Dophin with Rabies, and other humerously animal named metal bands Fame, and the venerable Joey Mars, whose funktastic licks have integral to the pantie drenching Fruchianti-fingering Wall of Funk.
The 4AM's current lineup has been gaining citywide and regional attention, opening for acts such as Mustard Plug, Deal's Gone Bad, The Invaders, Flatfoot 56, Something To Do and many more.The Zombie Skapacolypse set to 4 AM's undead opuss,"Cemetery Song," has been virulently spreading, showing no signs of subsiding.
So get ready to swim... The 4AM is rising, and riding on the crest of a new wave
