The Its! are Maciej (vocals, guitar), Nicko (bass), Pat (drums) and Eric (keyboard, guitar). They weren't always The Its!, but the twenty-somethings were always drawn to each other through their addiction for music. Maciej (pronounced "ma-chie") was born in Poland. At the age of 4, his family relocated to the US. Even then, he knew that his aspirations lay in music. He recalls his ambitious attempt to write songs without knowing how to play his first instrument.
It was in high school that Maciej met Pat. Pat had been playing drums since the age of 10. He worked his way through garage punk bands to pub groups. Tired of playing in dead-end bands, the two joined forces. Nicko, simply known in their musical circle as "Bassist Nick," was initially recruited as a temporary bass player for a gig. Since then, he's never looked back. Eric, after months of searching for a band, was eager to join the band. He proved his worthiness after learning the demo songs in just one night. It was with the addition of Eric in early 2004, that The Its! were complete.
Initially, the Chicago quartet produced a demo consisting of three songs, which includes the raw sound of "In Your Pocket" and "Take A Number". They recorded the tracks in their basement studio. Using the same studio, the band has recorded and released their self-titled album. It is currently available through the band’s official website (https://www.tradebit.com).
A few months after forming, the band was selected by Billboard Magazine out of thousands to compete in Disc Maker’s Independent Music World Series showcase at the famed Elbo Room. The Its! impressed a packed house of their growing fan base with their dynamic stage performance. They followed the showcase with an appearance at the MOBfest, Chicago's premier music conference. Keeping themselves busy, The Its! embarked on their own tour during the summer. The band continues to gain recognition with press write-ups and airplay from stations such as 93XRT and 94.7 FM in Chicago.
Channeling retrofitted rock ‘n roll, catchy riffs, and pop beats, their sound captures the familiarity of timeless rock, but remains eminently fresh and original. The Its! blend together irresistible hooks, dynamic changes, and raw energy to create an addictive sound forged by an eclectic array of musical influences.
The Its! will drag you into their wall of sound, surrounding you with music for the mind and body. They will make you dance and sing along. This is music for all the music-lovers. For those who want more than listening pleasure, but those who actually want to feel it, to breathe it, to live, and to experience it.

Illinois Entertainer Review
The Its could easily pass for a U.K. punk band from the early-'80s on their self-titled four song demo, thanks to the working class charm of guitarist-vocalist Maciej. "Take A Number," "Pay No Mind," and "New Beginnings" are energetic tracks that grow more complex via Eric's keyboard playing. "In Your Pocket" sports a more raw sound but still benefits from The Its' ability to create strong hooks.

"A spin tonight for an energetic, quirky bunch who don't let that energy and quirkiness get in the way of writing really good songs--these are The Its!...They have a way of infusing pop hooks along with the guitar and keyboard riffs that drive their tunes. Melodies that linger."
Jim DeRogatis former senior editor Rolling Stone
music critic, The Chicago Sun Times
"Well-recorded four-song demo by the Its! I like that droning New York garage-rock sound quite a bit...especially when Maciej's hooks are nearly as strong as those of Julian Casablancas."
Madison Magazine Story By Patrick Stutz
“Many bands struggle and burn out before they are able to accomplish what The Its! have done in under a year. The Chicago band has released their debut CD, finished a mini national tour, and set the foundation for a growing fan base. The rapid pace of the band's success has been attributed to the collaborative efforts of guitarist Maciej Padwoski, bass Nicko McCurley, drummer Patrick Fraser and guitarist/ keyboard player Eric Quinlan, who despite past musical failures believe they have stumbled upon a winning combination”
