Bobby Conn is a vocalist, songwriter, and performance artist working in Chicago, IL. He came out of the Chicago “NoWave” noise and performance scene in the mid90’s but quickly developed a reputation for extravagantly excessive performances, satirically political lyrics, and experimental, soulbased art rock.
His studio albums include Bobby Conn (1997), Rise Up! (1998), The Golden Age (2001), The Homeland (2004), King for a Day (2007), Macaroni (2012), as well as various singles, collaborations and compilations. He collaborates with his partner and violinist Monica BouBou, DJ and sound designer Adam “DJ LeDeuce” Greuel, longtime rhythm section Jim “Dallas” Cooper and Josh Johannpeter, as well as many talented players in the Chicago classical, jazz and improvisational scene. With Monica, he often performs as a minimalist electro duo with sequenced backing tracks, and also performs at larger events with his seven piece Superband. He and DJ LeDeuce have a weekly radio show every Monday night from 8PM 10PM called Post Modern Talking on WLPN 105.5 FM Chicago (streaming at www.lumpenradio.com). He is currently recording material for a forthcoming album of dance music titled Recovery, for release in 2017/2018.
