Mad Minute formed while serving time together in Joliet Prison. Not permitted to use electrical instruments, the songs were orignally written and perfomred in the yard using a pair of toothbrushes, a can of gasoline, an old toilet seat, several dozen rubber-bands and their imaginations. Once their respective paroles came through, they re-formed and tried recreating this unique sound in the Chicago club scene, but after a series of disasterous shows (one involving a full scale riot resulting in the fatality of a minor) they realized that it didn't seem to work as well when they weren't drinking fermented toilet wine, so they elected to move to electric instruments. Basically, well play anywhere including: basements, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, food pantrys, economy sized vans, squqts, and god forbid...arenas. Cheers!
