Premiere: Big Mother Gig “(Let’s Make) Compelling Content” Peaking Lights Remix

May 17, 2018

What do you get when you mix alt-rock/power-pop with hazy psychedelic groove. Take this ten-minute example from Los Angeles-based/Milwaukee-bred band Big Mother Gig, who had one of their tracks remixed by fellow Angelinos Peaking Lights. The results are unexpected. Big Mother Gig handed over their song “(Let’s Make) Compelling Content” to Peaking Lights and Under the Radar has the premiere of the hypnotic, “krautrockish” remix. It provides a nice wormhole into an alternate space for a while. Check it out below.

Led by singer/songwriter Richard Jankovich, Big Mother Gig originally formed in 1992 in Milwaukee and performed punk-influenced alternative rock across the Midwest with acts like The Magnolias, The Hunger, Punchdrunk (featuring future members of The Hold Steady). They returned in 2017 after a 20-year hiatus with a six-song EP “Almost Primed”. ”(Let’s Make) Compelling Content” was the second single released this year following the well received “The Great Heist”.
