Joe Jack Talcum

Joe Jack Talcum is the guitarist and one of the vocalists for the legendary Dead Milkmen. He'll be playing solo acoustic with his usual endearing, sarcastic, clever tunes and lyrics. Hall of Fame Philadelphian (in our eyes)!


Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt and tempered by 90s alternative era rock influence yields a juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world, allowing for a wide, unpredictable arsenal of material ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop.

Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord. Interest spread quickly and Coolzey found himself touring alongside hip-hop legends from Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5 as well as punk rock heroes like Dead Milkmen. Coolzey’s first album ‘The Honey’ was released in 2010 and second official full-length ‘Hit Factory’ in 2013. In these albums as well as in a number of EPs, collaborations and side projects, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip-hop, rock, punk and pop in the spirit of genre defying influences such as Ween, Beck, The Beastie Boys and Outkast.

Coolzey’s love for multiple genres can also be evidenced in his record label Public School Records, which curates music from the classic hip-hop of Bru Lei to the art pop of Belly Belt.

The Scrubs

From 1998 to 2004, The Scrubs were one of Cincinnati's premier punk bands and live acts. This trio played a unique mix of pop, punk, and rock, and were well known around the Midwest for their DIY ethic, entertaining live shows, and occasional (or not-so-occasional) 80s covers. They shared the stage with such bands as Alkaline Trio, Against Me!, Midtown, Ultimate Fakebook, Piebald and more. Albums 
were released on guitarist Jamie Mandel's own label Nice Guy Records. 

The Scrubs have 2 albums available. The "Return To The Basement" EP was released in 2004, and "The Scrubs Complete Discography 1999-2003" was released in 2007. Both are available on iTunes. 

Music by The Scrubs has appeared in movie trailers for The Rocker, Jackass 3D, Charlie Bartlett, Little Manhattan, and Bachelor Party 2. 

"The Scrubs pack a single song with more pop hooks than most bands can fit on an entire album. Pick slides, machine-gun drums, yowling vocals, and a hyperactive ear for melody keep these mad lads bouncing around your cranium all night long. Revel in the ecstatic sound of their angst." (Download.com)
