Live in Chicago, Day 2: Bottomless Pit and the Kadane Brothers

review by Sheryl Witlen

Bottomless Pit are a band with deep roots and love within the fair city of Chicago. Two former members of the band Silkworm, (who had played together from 1987-2005) have picked up the pieces and started to heal through their music and live performances. After the tragic death of their friend and drummer, Michael Dahlquist, bassist Tim Midgett and guitarist Andy Cohen came to the conclusion that even though no one could ever replace Michael in their hearts or in that particular way that Silkworm came together, they would continue to make music for their city and their fans. Picking up two new members, bassist Brian Orchard (also a member of the band .22) and drummer Chris Manfrin, both former employees of Electrical Audio Studios. Tim and Michael have also played with Stephen Malkmus of Pavement with another side project, The Crust Brothers. Joining them for the last in-studio session during day two our broadcast are Matt and Bubba Kadane, formerly of the so-called “slo-core” Texas band Bedhead and now of The New Year, who tried a couple of new songs.
