Wax On Radio/Yak Pak Messenger Bag Contest

One of the more impressive sets I've seen at CMJ this week came from Chicago prog-rock merchants Wax On Radio at B.B. King's. They play an emotive (without being all emo) kind of punky rock and roll that's at least a step more creative than the rest of their peers, with songs that occasionally extend into jam territory without sounding all wanky and self-indulgent. Their album Exposition is a totally solid listen all the way through, and is out on Downtown Records, home of Gnarls Barkley, Cold War Kids, and Art Brut.

extrawack!, Wax On Radio, and Yak Pak want to give one lucky reader a mad fly Yak Pak messenger bag (an $80 value!), stuffed with a spankin' new copy of Wax On Radio's Exposition . If you are a connoisseur of fine shoulder-based carrying vessels like we are, you know that this is the brand and messenger bag of the moment.

To win, send a photo, drawing, or other graphic depiction of a radio to us...the more creative or outrageous the radio, the better your chance of winning. It can be your creation or someone else's, but if it's someone else's, just give us the source in case we want to re-post it. We'll select the best radio at 12:01am EST on 15 November, and have the prize shipped right out. Contest only open to U.S. residents. The decision of our judges is final. Good luck!

Wax On Radio - "Time Will Bind Us To The Guilt of Commitment" real win
