Kick Rebecca Bradley off the WI Supreme Court this Tuesday and Bum Out Scott Walker.

Wisconsin, we need your help on Tuesday.

State Supreme Court justice Rebecca Bradley is a career-long Scott Walker toady, having been appointed to three different positions by him. She's his lapdog, pretty much. She recently cast the deciding vote on a case that has severe repercussions on our Fourth Amendment Rights to be protected from illegal search & seizure. Please read this and this Journal-Sentinel article to learn more about it. What's important is that she did not even hear the oral arguments in the case because she wasn't on the court when they happened, YET SHE CAST THE DECIDING VOTE ANYWAY. Like the rest of the Republican wing of this court, she is corrupt and shady.

But i have good news! Her seat is UP FOR RE-ELECTION, RIGHT NOW. We have a primary for "non-partisan offices" (in quotes because partisanship has destroyed the integrity of our court) on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, and Rebecca Bradley is on the ballot running to retain this seat, along with TWO opponents. Only the TOP TWO move to the general election in April. One of her opponents is JoAnne Kloppenburg, a good judge who ran for the State Supreme Court in 2011 but lost to another Walker stooge, David Prosser (who ironically voted against Bradley on this 4th Amendment thing).

Experts are projecting that Tuesday's primary election will feature 10% voter turnout. That means YOUR VOTE HAS MORE POWER THAN NORMAL. Please go to the polls on Tuesday and help toss Rebecca Bradley out of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. She sucks, and it would bum out Scott Walker.

Please share this message and get the word to your friends to PLEASE VOTE on Tuesday. REAL CHANGE BEGINS AT HOME, on the local level.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Haunted Heads, "285 Feet Tall"

Haunted Heads deliver our second song and video for UNINTIMIDATED, the high-octane infectious "285 Feet Tall." The song is a pure distillation of what makes Haunted Heads one of Wisconsin's best bands--shimmering, complementary dual guitar harmonies, a rapid-fire rhythm section, and haggard, instantly memorable vocal hooks. Guitarist Andy Johnson wrote the lyrics from the perspective of Scotty Walker himself, singing "My hands, my arms are made of wood/With billion dollar strings/I can be anything." Although, to be fair, I think Andy's giving Scooter a little too much credit by assuming that he knows who Van Gogh was.

Share it everywhere! It's a hit in the making!

VIDEO PREMIERE: FowlMouth, "Too Tired to Riot"

UNINTIMIDATED: Wisconsin Musicians Against Scott Walker is pleased to premiere the first video and song from the UNINTIMIDATED project: "Too Tired to Riot" by Kenosha, WI's FowlMouth!

FowlMouth are a group of long-tenured Kenosha scene veterans playing a bare-bones, stripped-down dirty, bluesy punk rock. "Too Tired to Riot" is a perfect choice for our first video posting as the song encapsulates the overall frustration with Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Republican party that inspired this project. As we have sat back over the past five years watching unions stripped of their power, education devalued, Wisconsin's resources and public lands attacked, and our state's middle class decimated, we've felt the need to rise up and do something more than vote, but the grind of daily lives often leaves us too worn out to do little more than share an angry Facebook post and call it a day. FowlMouth captures this feeling of powerlessness and exhaustion in an ironically upbeat, instantly catchy tune.

More videos are coming soon as we near the completion of this project! Watch out for more updates and information about release shows and more fun stuff coming this Spring!

Bitterfest was a big ol' success.

On Saturday night, the UNINTIMIDATED crew and a few of the UNINTIMIDATED bands descended on Evelyn's on Main St. in Racine for the second annual BITTER FEST, a day-long marathon rock show that's free to get in to and features a fundraising raffle to donate funds to a good cause. That cause this year was our little project, and the show was a big ol' slam-bang success! Fourteen bands blasted through 25-minute sets from 3 PM until 1 AM, including UNINTIMIDATED bands Heavy Hand, Body Futures, IfIHadAHiFi, and Donoma. When all was said and done, well over $1000 was raised, which will cover production costs for the CDs, DVDs, and zine printing that will be commencing very soon!

We want to extend a very sincere thank you to everyone at Evelyn's, including Tom, Dustin, Jessica, and Gretchen; the Hey Muchacho guys for running sound, and every band that made the trip to Racine to donate their time to our little art project. Every dollar raised will eventually make its way to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Milwaukee soup kitchens, in an effort to directly help those getting most screwed by the Wisconsin Republican Party's regressive and profit-minded policies. 

So, the question now becomes, when the hell will YOU guys get to hear and see some results from all this work? Very shortly, folks...we're this close to getting all the videos edited, and the songs are completely mastered. We're in the home stretch!

Until then...

Happy New Year from UNINTIMIDATED! (Project Update Post!)

Oh hi, errybody! The blog's been a bit quiet (shit, we still have to tell you all about Donoma, Body Futures, Damsel Trash, Testa Rosa and Venus in Furs!), but stuff's been a-happening! Our tireless squad of editors have been diligently assembling and cutting rolls of film (not really; it's all FinalCut now. It's 2016) in the hopes of putting together 13 kickass videos full of anti-Scott Walker piss, vinegar, bile, and guitars, bass, drums, fiddle, autoharp, keys, etc. Meanwhile, the songs themselves are pretty much mixed and will be off to mastering at the beginning of January. Man, we can't wait to share these with y'all.

"So guys, about that -- when will you be sharing these with us all?" Well, it's tricky when you're a bunch of people with day jobs trying to make a huge art project happen on your free time, but we're still shooting for late February/early March to have this all done and ready for consumption. A big x-factor in that equation, of course, is money and whether we have it, because pressing CDs and DVDs ain't cheap! But that's why one of our executive producers, Tony, is throwing a little shindig for us in Racine on January 30.

Just look at that bonkers lineup, you guys. Featuring five UNINTIMIDATED bands! Free admission! Raffle tickets being sold to raise money for our little project! Mark January 30 on your calendar and get ready for a batshit awesome time!

More to come in 2016, you guys. Scott Walker's not running for president anymore, but he's doubled down on his special brand of homespun bought and paid for evil. We're ready to yell at him a whole lot with distortion and loud noises and shit. Yell along with us!
