New life for My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult

Brace yourselves: The frontman for a long-standing punk band is about to say something kind about Chicago police officers. Franke Nardiello, also known as Groovie Mann of the industrial-turned-'90s-pop band My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, spent some of his teens at Dugan's Bistro, the gay River North dance club famous for a drag queen called the Bearded Lady.

Rob Bochnik and the 'simple hippie message' of 'Lovevolve'

Touring Australia with Bob Dylan. Sharing a stage with the late Levon Helm during one of his legendary Midnight Ramble sessions. More than a handful of late-night TV appearances. Guitarist and Chicago native Rob Bochnik's resume lists these high points and more, thanks to a fateful invitation almost 15 years ago to join Academy Award-winner Glen Hansard's band, The Frames. The DePaul graduate met the charismatic Irish singer-songwriter at Steve Albini's Northwest Side studio, Electrical Audio, where he was working as a sound engineer while the band was recording its seminal 2001 album "For the Birds."
