Waco Jesus

Seated at the intersection of “death metal, grind and porn,” are Illinois natives, Waco Jesus.   This self-described “shit-rock” band covers dark and sometimes gross themes, such as misogyny, shit, and sex. While founders Kevin Mensen and Crazy Jim set out to upset people and disrupt the peace with their extreme sound, Waco Jesus fits into a long line of Illinois depravity, including bands like Lividity and Impetigo and serial killers like the Railway Killer. Waco Jesus fits in perfectly with the guttural, perverse, slam-filled Thursday Soundstage line up.
