White Reaper

“Make Me Wanna Die”

White Reaper Does It Again

What a great song.  That 70’s punk sound (think Buzzcocks) with a great 60’s organ part (think ? and the Mysterians) and you get White Reaper.  Music for pogoing.  I love this band.  The White Reapers, composed of Guitarist/Vocalist Tony Esposito, keyboardist Ryan Hater, bassist Sam Wilkerson, and drummer Nick Wilkerson, come from Louisville, KY, where they are known for barreling through a set of six songs in a blistering 15 minutes.  This band is fast and ferocious, like but unlike the Ramones.  This band is very individual.  They are on tour.  See them, if your heart can stand it.  They are so Midwestern.  I think that makes them so special.
