Description

Sound description: Both fronting the Victorstands and playing solo, Midwestern singer/songwriter Chad Rex creates a brand of roughed-up roots rock that calls to mind both the stormy heyday of the Replacements and the bruised, muscular country of Uncle Tupelo. A native of St. Joseph, MO, Rex played with groups throughout the '90s, including a stint in the Fort Collins, CO, band Armchair Martian. Moving back to Kansas City, MO, in 1996, Rex hooked up with bassist Jason Magieroski and drummer Matt Brahl to form the trio Chad Rex & the Victorstands. Rex also frequently played solo between the band's gigs. Chad Rex & the Victorstands released the album Songs to Fix Angels on Mars Motors Records in 2002. (Erik Hage, allmusic.com)
