GROOVY SOUND FROM CHICAGO
The Adjusters are a collective of musicians originally formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1995. Our goal was always to blend complementary styles of music,traditional ska, roots and 60's reggae and, of course,Stax-style soul. More recently, thanks to the addition of RENCH, a New York-based producer and drummer to the Adjuster ranks, we have expanded our musical vocabulary to include trip hop, big beat and hip hop.IF YOU is an example of this new direction. Through it all, we have tried to maintain a close link between our music and a commitment to political consciousness and activism. Music alone can never change the world,but without it, why bother? Living in America right now is a test of both will and hope. While there are reasons to be proud and optimistic (a strong anti-war movement, trade union renewal), it is impossible to ignore the insanity of the Bush administration and its attacks on human rights, global community and the security of working people. We gotta keep singing, keep dancing and keep fighting. We can change America. We can change the world.
"Otis Redding Will Save America", the current album is
available on CD and LP from Grover records.
