A clever name is always a start. A historically-centered clever? Extra super bonus points. John Wilkes Booze are made, huh? That and they're KRS flunkies.

Formerly the John Wilkes Booze Explosion, John Wilkes Booze is a six-piece soul band from Bloomington, Indiana. The band features/has featured the talents of some ex-members of the Impossible Shapes, Unstable Ensemble, The Devil is Electric, and Songs: Ohia. Their first album for KRS, The Five Pillars of Soul was a collection of five prior EPs dedicated to five figures whom the band believed contributed much to the genre of soul.

Their new album Telescopic Eyes Glance the Future Sick is going to be released this fall on Kill Rock Stars.
