Since 2004 Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) has used the Secret History of Chicago Music to shine a light on worthy artists with Chicago ties who've been forgotten, underrated, or never noticed in the first place.

  • "I Dare You to Dance" is the only surviving Möc Artsy song.
  • Michael Latham, aka Aaron Detritus of Möc Artsy, went on to perform in the group Waltz Invention. This is their track "Minnesota."
