Blurring the lines between fanfiction and adaptive reality, The Eradicator, based on the Kids in the Hall sketch of the same name, places the aggressive ski mask-wearing squash player in a restless environment confronting internal demons while combating external challengers as part of his quest to maintain dominance atop his local D Squash ladder. On their third LP, called Forever the Eradicator out October 2022, the Eradicator combines a Melodic Punk foundation with metallic riffs and high energy anthems. Live in concert, The Eradicator is in character, masked and motivated by dominance over his squash game. The absurdity of the performer crossed with the revolving cast of veteran musicians who have played in Punk, Metal, and Hardcore bands for the better part of 20 years has left audiences amused, bewildered, but surprisingly apt to come back for more throughout the seven year existence of the band, resulting in over 150 performances across four countries.
First show since 2017, first time ever as a full band. Dress shirts. Slacks. Stamp collections. The suburbs. Gardening. LaCroix. These are the calling cards of America’s Baddest Band®, Chicago’s own Bad Mechanics. No strangers to shtick, featuring current & former members of The Eradicator, HeWhoCorrupts, and Chicago Thrash Ensemble, the group takes aim at ‘adult life’ in hypnotizing, rapid fire with their debut LP Precious Moments in the USA on Stonewalled Records.
