Tarmac Talk


Material Issue "Valerie Loves Me"

There's a long story to be told about Material Issue, and if yr interested in reading it, go here. I'll make the long story short for you though. This band came from my hometown of Chicago, met each other at my alma mater of Columbia College and went on to make perfect pop rock hits that would have conquered the world if given a chance. The band came to a tragic end when the lead singer killed himself in 1996. Heartbreak and loss were regular topics for Material Issues bittersweet brnad of pop song, and "Valerie Loves Me" was the one song I remember Chicago DJs playing the shit out of while I grew up. It's also one of their best.
