The Repos

Formed in late 2002, the Repos set out with two goals in mind: play short songs, and come up with a short stupid name starting with "The". Mission accomplished. In the Spring of 2003 the Repos began playing out, instantly drawing attention by playing extremely short sets of fast hardcore punk music, with ten-song sets lasting around 7 or 8 minutes. Led by singer Aaron (ex Charles Bronson, Mushuganas, Christ Mess, Pretentious Assholes, and on and on and on), the Repos created music inspired by and ripped off from early Poison Idea guitar riffs, yelled vocals that are neither tough guy nor the high-pitched screamy hardcore type, "Group Sex" Circle Jerks and "Is This My World?" Jerry's Kids drums, with lyrical content revolving around four basic subjects: paranoia, death, drugs, and fantasy. The Repos recorded a demo in early 2003, and their first full length album in the Summer of 2003. Numerous problems prevented it from being released until the Fall of 2004. By that time, a split 7" of newer material was already released with fellow Chicago group Fourteen Or Fight. The Repos recorded material for a second full length album in the Spring of 2005. It was released in a limited number of 750 copies on vinyl in August of 2006. The planned bonus 12" was scrapped due to a lack of interest. In March of 2008, they played their last show. Ever. Sucks for those who couldn't be there. The group has recently reformed under the name The Ropes Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
