What is it? Is it the wheel with teeth that makes your bike move quick? Is it the small pocket stitched into your lingerie in which to hide mints for an opportune moment? Is it the Russian module propelled into orbit during the great space race? Nay, it is none of these. It is a group of individuals with the combined brain force to outdo all of these innovations. Spocket cannot be measured by area nor volume nor time nor distance. Only groove. But don't take my word for it. The groove eminates from them. It grows from within them. You cannot stop the Spocket groove. Succumb to the groove, let the dense harmonies sift through your mind, the effortless rhythms pulse through your bones. The blasting horns, the swirling organs. Chicago has ne'er seen a project this heavy. Could this bio have been more compact? Maybe Did I waste every members' time having them send me individual bios? Definitely But the point is this: Spocket has established themselves as one of Chicago's sharpest & most captivating large ensembles. Just don't confuse them with the gears that move your bike chain.
