The Critics


With an early on love for the Beatles, The Who and Cheap Trick while we were young within the Northwestern suburbs of Chicago, Kevin Mantegna (vocals/ guitar), Marty Winer (drums) and Todd Rusin (bass) eventually became inspired enough to create their very own combo of 60’s power-pop and psychedelic rock and roll. Resulting in the forming of The Critics, the music group immediately documented a demonstration and two compilation slashes before launching their full-length debut “Raintree” in 1995.
