DMR 31 


Forming in 1998 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, THE MISTREATERS played their first show that New Year's Eve. Over the next few years they built a reputation as one of the Midwest's most celebrated underground rock and roll bands due to an explosive live show and relentless touring. The band released a 7" in 1999 on Buffalo, NY's Big Neck Records, and their debut full length for the same label the following year. They released several more singles on labels like Flying Bomb (Michigan), Goodbye Boozy (Italy) and Yakisakana (France). Cross country treks and appearances at the Rust Belt Revolt, Horizontal Action Blackout and South By Southwest solidified the band's following and in 2003 the legendary Estrus Records released their sophomore album. That year also saw the band make their maiden voyage to Europe. Over the next few years, more singles and another trip to Europe followed, and the band released a live LP on guitarist KEVIN MISTREATER’s label Dusty Medical Records. On December 30, 2011 the band played their final live show, at Milwaukee's Cactus Club. A few months prior, they got together to record the last 4 songs from their repertoire—songs written when the band was still playing regularly but had not gotten down on tape. These songs form the nucleus of their swan song The Mistreaters—a compilation of hard-to-find 7" and compilation tracks, as well as a couple other previously unreleased songs. At 26 songs in all, this collection spans the band's entire career, going back all the way to their first demo tape. Packaged in deluxe gatefold sleeves in an edition of 325 copies.
