INTERVIEWS

PRESS NUGGETS

"We’ve got a mighty, mighty good show for you. I’d even go so far as to say it’s our best show of new Chicago music so far this year. I kid you not. Topping the list is The Thons. There’s a guitar solo on one of these tracks that is the least cliched, least hackneyed series of notes I’ve heard in quite a spell." ~ Richard Milne, WXRT's Local Anesthetic

"The Thons are guys from Chicago playing like the British guys who didn’t give a damn about the blues. This is all out Buzzcock-y, even making one or two Joy Diversions here and there. I’m Thon-derstruck!" ~ Jake, Roctober Magazine

"This band kinda remind me of The Thermals, if they were actually The Intelligence. Which means they are so so rad. Slightly unhinged, slightly relentless, totally addictive." ~ Brendan, Sonic Masala

"The catchy hooks never come up short. The straightforward but powerful production - everything was recorded in one day - this fits like ass on bucket." ~ 12XU

"The Thons offers straight ahead pop rock that crackles and shines in its exhilaration, marking a group who have only just begun to find their voice and develop it into a unit truly worth watching." ~ Kriss, Notes and Bolts

"The Thons play a garage rock-blues bastardized by post and proto-punk influences and they do it with sincerity and passion that is jaw-dropping." ~ Leonardo, Loud Notes

"Both albums have an old-fashioned garage rock sound with a splash of surf rock with a vintage rockabilly flair." ~ Rachel, The Logansquarist
