Indie rock-band Honcho Overload was mixed up in Champaign-Urbana, IL, picture for the 1st half from the ’90s. The group was composed of music artists from earlier Champaign-Urbana rings, and contains singer Expenses Johnson and guitarist Jeff Dimpsey, both of Poor Flannel, guitarist K.C. Driscoll of We Ate Plato, bassist Matt Talbott from We Ate Plato, and Poster Kids, and drummer Mike Rader, also from the Poster Kids. Guitarist Balthazar de Ley was originally in the music group, but left to create the group Mom (which later transformed its name to Menthol) before Honcho Overload came into the studios. The music group released two albums — Smiles Everyone (1993) and Pour Another Drink (1994) — and two singles on Dirt Records before phoning it quits in 1995. At exactly the same time that Honcho Overload was energetic, Dimpsey and Talbott had been also in the music group Hum, along with de Ley. Pursuing Honcho Overload’s separation, Bill Johnson continued to try out in Morning Turns into Electric, Dimpsey continuing in Hum and co-founded Country wide Skyline, Talbott continued to be in Hum and finally performed in Centaur, and Rader became a member of in the fantastic Crusades.
