“After silence, that which comes nearest
to expressing the inexpressible is music”
The quotation that embellishes the site for Milwaukee’s Those XCleavers seems even more appropriate today in light of the news of the passing away of XCleavers’ guitarist/vocalist Terry Tanger. Tanger made the iconic local band who opened for a youthful U2 and for The Police something to contend with and be Milwaukee music proud-of by expressing with authenticity a true emotion of era and place. Here’s to Tanger for making that happen. Here’s to Melissa for playing so many songs in tribute on her show today.
