The Contractions

Widely Regarded as "Madison's Worst Band"

This group of hard-rocking economists and reluctant acquaintences has been terrorizing the rock scene of various unfortunate metropolitan areas since 1997. They take special delight in tormening music-lovers residing in the Madison, Wisconsin area where Davis (guitar/bass), Eudey (keys) and Wright (guitar) now live. Unbeknownst to most, the band has been secretly practicing and is quietly making great strides towards actual musicianship. After the band's most recent performance, well-known composer and pop music-star Kyle Henderson might have agreed with the remark that The Contractions have graduated from "abominable" to "insufferable" or perhaps even "merely lousy."
