WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Those XCleavers “Skip a Beat”

After silence, that which comes nearest
to expressing the inexpressible is music

-Aldous Huxley

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.
