With more than 75 original gems composed from 1994-1999, Milhous captured an obsessively loyal following with it's raucous, reckless pop songs one minute, and sweet, two-stepping country ballads the next. It is the kind of rock and roll that makes you want to dance, fight or kiss a stranger. It's rock and roll for people who "get it." Chicago Sun-Times rock critic, Jim Derogatis, wrote in an enthusiastic review, "They are an ambitious, seven-piece band clearly enamored of the godfather of grunge with a heaping helping of R.E.M. circa Reckoning.' In 1993, Fraser Cole (vocals and guitar) and Scott Anderson (guitar) formed Milhous with drummer Peter Davis. The trio banged out Low-Fi recordings reminiscent of Velvet Underground with the help of Wayne Berquist (bass). Accordion virtuoso, Eddie Torrez, joined the band and soon Milhous began it's way through every club in Chicago. The band rounded out with Chris Anderson and his bounty of unusual drums and an ability to carry 12 beers onto stage, and Suzanne Ecklund's soaring backing vocals evocative of the great 60's rock harmonies. Milhous ended with the departure of lead singer, Fraser Cole, but for five years, the floors shook, the beer flowed and great songs were enjoyed by thousands.
