The Ike Reilly Assassination About

Chicago-area indie rocker Ike Reilly’s lyrics are rude, crude, and lewd, but very involving and clever. His themes and melodies make me care very much about his music. Currently, he is out touring behind a new release, Born on Fire. I was pleased to see him perform at a dive bar in Boston, Great Scott, on 7/13/2015.

All seven of his Ike Reilly/Ike Reilly Assassination CDs are worthwhile, but for the uninitiated, I would start with his 2001 major label release Salesmen and Racists on Universal/Republic, which is buoyed by such great songs as “Commie Drives a Nova” and “Hip Hop Thighs,” both of which he performed live when I saw him.
