Prosecutors

The Prosecutors- s/t  CD (SPL-023)

Milwaukee's three-chord heroes, The Prosecutors were Kevn Kinney of drivin' n' cryin's first band. From 1980-1983, Kevn cut his songwriting and performing teeth in the band with bassist Doug LaValliere (brother of the Haskels/Oil Tasters' Richard LaValliere and Haskels/Dominoes' Gerard LaValliere) and drummer James "Tess" Tessier. They played the now iconic Starship nightclub and other Milwaukee punk/postpunk era clubs along with other legendary MidWest haunts until the band ran out of steam in1983. At that point Kevn decided to seek out warmer climates and a more receptive audience in Atlanta. Almost 30 years later drivin' n' cryin' still perform some of the Prosecutors' classics including "Acceleration", "Brute Force" and "Moon Shot".

This self-titled retrospective was assembled and released for the Prosecutors recent reunion as part of the "No Moment of Silence" event at Milwaukee's Miramar Theater. The CD includes:

  • All tracks from the Prosecutors' 1982 "I've Got A Message" 45

  • Tracks recorded live at the Starship in 1981 and 1982
  • Kevn's first multitrack demo recording, "Acceleration"
