[Milwaukee punks] The Mistreaters formed in 1998

-they recorded for Big Neck Records before switching to Estrus in 2001

    “These Milwaukee boys demonstrate how it’s done–greasy, raw and ruthlessly paced garage punk. Controlled sloppiness within dazzling tightness, a big thick swampy sound with a distinct swing, basket weaving riffs, and garbage-can drums evoke a smoky little dive so packed and steamy that guys sweat beer and girls disrobe.” (Chicago Reader)

    “… Equal doses of Oblivians, Pussy Galore and Gories crammed into a huge, loud ball of pure rock action. Amazing! Lead singer Christreater delivered some mighty fine Otis Redding moves and the band went from good to better and better.” SN, Low Cut Magazine
