"An homage to the prairie state Numero calls home, From Champaign To Chicago is a 19-track survey of Illinois' Cheapest Tricks. Reaching back to 1973 and Peoria outliers the Jets and ending in 1987 with Romeoville's Julian Leal and his Dick Clark approved 'Get Away,' From Champaign to Chicago connects, via map, pins, and string, the various scenes that pockmarked the face of the Land of Lincoln. Chicago's Prettyboys, Tom Orsi, All-Night Newsboys, Kevin Lee & Heartbeat, Band Jocks, Northshore, Paul, the Kind, and Loose Lips are tethered to Rockford's the Names; Champaign's Vertebrats, Contra-Band, and the Nines; LaSalle's the Jerks; Joliet's Lay-Z; and Zion's Shoes by the clubs, booking agents, weekly newspapers, and regional radio stations they were all fighting to be seen, and more importantly, heard in."
