Biography

Since 1990, Chicago industrial rock mainstays Sister Machine Gun have been making ground-breaking records and playing incendiary live shows. In the fourteen years since the band was formed, SMG has released seven full-length albums, three EPs, and countless singles and side projects. SMG songs have been featured in video games and television shows such as Microsoft’s Xbox game Amped2, MTV’s The Real World, USA Network’s La Femme Nikita, TNN and Fox Sports’ Re:Evolution of Sports, and several feature films and soundtracks including Scream, Hideaway, and the platinum selling Mortal Kombat.

Sister Machine Gun founder Chris Randall and guitarist Miguel Turanzas are, without a doubt, one of music’s hardest working duos. In addition to recording, producing, and touring, they also run their own record label, Positron! Records. Not simply a vehicle for SMG, the label has unleashed 17 releases including albums from Van Christie (Die Warzau), Matt Walker (Filter/Smashing Pumpkins/Cupcakes) and Mike Fisher (Machines of Loving Grace).

SMG’s extensive catalog explores just about every genre of modern music, from electro-funk dance to Hendrix-flavored industrial strength rock. Their seventh release, Influence, is an elektro-industrial tour-de-force that recalls the industrial sound of the late eighties and early nineties. Heavy beats, distorted guitars and pounding synth lines drag your favorite sounds kicking and screaming into the future.

    TT is their best album. but Burn isn't that bad. there are maybe 5 songs or so which are still very good (for me).
