about

Formed in December of 1980, The Basics was a New Wave rock group from Catlin, IL. The lineup included:

Joe Legg - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals
Matthew Sigmon - Lead Guitar, Vocals
Julie Anderson - Keyboards, Vocals
Rob Mayerik - Bass, Vocals
Mark Metzger - Drums

The group were prolific writers, performed primarily their original material and eventually recorded over 50 songs. The “Black & White” album, their first significant studio project, was recorded during the winter of 1983/84 in Fisher IL by Chuck Gray and Rick Sadowski who engineered and co-produced the tracks.

The masters were never officially released or made available to the public by Gray and Sadowski, and the versions here were rescued from a mix tape given to the band. The Basics’ work is a unique example of Midwestern American rock of the era. Even after more than 3 decades, the songs retain a fresh, energetic quality, and represent an authentic contribution to the early 80’s New Wave genre.
