 Derrin Nauendorf - Biography

Determined to make something of his music career, five years ago Derrin Nauendorf arrived at Heathrow airport from Australia with a guitar, £1,200 and several extra layers of clothing to acclimatise to the drop in temperature. From this, Derrin spent those next five years playing anywhere that would have him, sleeping on floors and living on tuna baguettes. Things looked up a few years ago when he purchased an old Post Office van, which then became his home for the next six months, more importantly, it allowed him to get gigs, and essentially his music, out into the real depths of the UK. They've looked up and haven't looked back yet. Literally over 1,000 gigs later Derrin finds himself with fans not only in England, but Scotland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and his native Australia too. He has since managed to sell over 12,000 albums from the back of that van, and become a bit of a hit on the festival circuit too. His actual album is called "The Rattling Wheel".

 The Joe Galea Band, AUS - Biography

Growing up in Sydney's notorious King's Cross, Joe was influenced at an early age by American Merchant Seamen on R & R leave, playing their blues and soul records. Such artists as Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, Little Milton and Muddy Waters to name a few. In his teen years Joe sang with his band The Midnighters alongside other Sydney up and coming stars of the future such as "The Bee Gees", Billy Thorpe, and New Zealand's "Max Merritt", working places like Suzie Wong's, Whisky a Go Go, Surf City and Teenage Cabaret. Joe, his brother and a couple of friends used the family garage for practice where every note they played and every word Joe sang, was being watched and taken in by several young boys from the local migrant centre at Villawood - who would have thought that in years to come they would become one of Australia's leading bands known as "The Easybeats". Joe formed several bands over the years, each one building up a faithful following - the most successful being "Cross The Border" working solidly every week for almost 10 years, but none have come even close to the present line up of talented musicians that Joe has with him in "The Joe Galea Band".

 Colin Linden, CAN - Biography

Colin Linden wears more hats than you’d find at a Royal wedding, and we're not just talking about the trademark big black hat he favours on and offstage. This musical renaissance man is indeed a multiple threat - as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer. He is in major demand by artists wanting him to produce, write for, and / or play on their records (he has played on 300 and produced 60 albums), yet somehow finds time to both pursue a prolific solo career and play a key role in Canadian roots-rock "supergroup" Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. "I've been playing country blues, '20s style acoustic blues, since I was a really little kid", the 45-year-old Linden explains. "When I was 11, I met [electric blues pioneer] Howlin' Wolf. One of the things he said to me that really got me onto this path was that 'if you want to play this kind of music you should listen to the people I listened to'. He told me about Charlie Patton and Son House and that generation of artists. That was like opening the biggest door in the world for me, so I just dug in deep. I listened to it and have been playing it seriously for 32 years now." For more info go here: (...JG 117 + ...JG 118).

 Calvin Owens - Biography

Unlike jazz, where names such as Louis Armstrong, Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis easily come to mind, trumpeters - apart from the legendary W.C. Handy - have not played a central part in creating the mythos of the Blues. Long time B.B. King band member and arranger Calvin Owens takes a step toward rectifying that situation with this CD. The Houston, Texas native Owens, recently relocated to his home town, has formed his own blues orchestra and on 'True Blue' uses twenty-four (count 'em) musicians all told, with special guest appearances from luminaries such as Johnny Clyde Copeland and B.B. King himself, singer B.J. Scott and sax player David 'Fathead' Newman. Now, Calvin Owens deserves more than ever his title as "The Maestro". Owens' recording credits: artist and producer for Memphis Tenn's Kiondict Recording Company. A & R director and studio musician for Peacock Recording Company of Houston, Texas. Arranger for A & M recording studios in L. A. California. Owens' provocative performance makes it clear that his reputation is indisputable. His flamboyant creations are portrayed in each and every musical note throughout his albums. The moment he strikes up his band, his music generates surprising range and power as well as an unidentifiable aesthetic quality. Mr. Owens' trumpet work is precise and lyrical, sometimes gentle, sometimes rugged, and consistently mesmerizing. For more info go here: (Headliner ...JG 114).

 Cathy Jean - Biography

Cathy Jean is a life-long musician, dedicating her soul to blues, rock, and roots music. "You just never really know what to expect next from this lady - will it be something mellow with a groove, or nasty and in your face! My introduction to this artist came when I received her second CD, "I Want". As I was checking out all the saucy photos on the covers and in the booklet, I was prepared for some wannabe who was only told she could sing by guys who wanted to hear a different kind of tune coming from her, if you get my drift. (No offense, Cathy - this was before I heard it!) The first thing I hear, though, is a blasting boogie where she's telling some guy to be glad "she don't like jail", otherwise she'd put a bullet in his head. Ouch. The thing is, she sounded great. A little threatening, but great! Now, on Cathy's third effort, "Marshall Road Apocalypse", she heads in a raunchier, rougher direction. As with her previous CD's, Cathy writes all her own material. This time, though, it seems as if she's been messed with one too many times, and she's exacting her revenge on all the evil-doers through her music - and wins! ...Take my word for it - you will love these discs in your collection!" - Texas Flood Radio, USA.

 Gotthard - Band history

Svicarski hard rockerji Gotthard (ime so dobili po znanem predoru) so nastali leta 1992, ko so se zbrali vokalist Steve Lee, kitarist Leo Leoni, basist Marc Lynn, bobnar Hena Habegger in ritem kitarist Mandy Meyer. Istega leta so izdali prvo plosco, naslovljeno preprosto Gotthard. Z njo so takoj dosegli zlati status v domovini, se odpravili na domaco headlinersko turnejo, po Evropi pa igrali z Victory in Magnum ter imeli celo nekaj nastopov na Japonskem. Zacelo se je torej precej sanjsko, vendar je hard rock tedaj izgubljal na moci. Posneli so dva videospota za komada Hush in All I Care For in nato podaljsali svojo turnejo, ki se je zavlekla do druge polovice leta 1993. Nato so ponovno vstopili v studio in posneli drugi album, Dial Hard, ki je izsel v zacetku 1994. Z njim so doma dosegli celo platinast status, uspesni pa so bili tudi v Nemciji in na Japonskem, kjer so odigrali dve headlinerski turneji, poleg tega pa nastopali se v vec TV oddajah in na open air festivalih. Nato so vecino leta 1995 prebili v Los Angelesu, kjer so snemali naslednji album, naslovljen preprosto G.. G. je izsel leta 1996 in ponovil uspeh svojega predhodnika, skupina pa se je odpravila na turnejo v njim ze znane drzave, Nemcijo in Japonsko, dodali pa so se Juzno Korejo.

 Jimi Hendrix Experience - Short band history

The Jimi Hendrix Experience recorded three landmark albums - "Are You Experienced?", "Axis: Bold As Love" and "Electric Ladyland" - in a year and a half. Hendrix's theatrical, incendiary performances at the Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals, including the ceremonial torching of his guitar at Monterey, have become part of rock and roll legend. Under extreme pressure due to a combination of non-stop work, sudden celebrity and drug-taking, the trio broke up in early 1969. Hendrix commenced work on a projected double album and debuted a new trio, Band of Gypsies, at the Fillmore East on New Year's Eve 1969. Hendrix performed his last concert at the Isle of Fehmarn, Germany on September 6, 1970 (though he joined Eric Burdon and War on stage on September 16 at Ronnie Scott's in London). On September 18, 1970 - he died from suffocation, having inhaled vomit due to barbiturate intoxication.

 Atheis Rap - Biografija

Sve je pocelo tako sto je poznati menadzer Teca Morales trazio pet lepih momaka za boys bend... Ma jok, ovako je to bilo. Da bismo otkrili korene nastanka ATHEIST RAP-a treba se vratiti u daleke 80-te kada su se neki od buducih clanova benda neizlecivo zarazili pankom. Tada su sa svojom ekipom oformili FLUOREL TACKAS, bend koji je zario i palio po novosadskim fiskulturnim salama, po kojima se tada cesto sviralo. Posle nadasve preteranog koncerta Ramba Amadeusa na novosadskom MASINCU 1989. godine, dva gradska frika, dr. Pop i Pecinko pokrecu inicijativu za stvaranje benda. Iz vec pomenutog Tackasa u Ateiste dolaze Radule (gitara) i Zare (bass), a za bubnjeve seda iskusni Goja (KAPETAN LESHI, FEAR OF DOG, fanzin BOLJI ZIVOT). Pomenuti vokalni tandem nije bas imao nekog pevackog iskustva, sto im nije smetalo da se u tome nikada dodatno ne edukuju, ali upravo njihovim ucescem udahnuta je dodatna doza pozitivnog duha.

 Goblini - Biografija

GOBLINI su band nastao 1992. godine u Sapcu. Band je nastao dolaskom Alena Jovanovica i Vladislava Kokotovica iz Karlovca, koji su u to vreme bili clanovi banda Lorelei. Upoznavsi se sa Brankom Golubovicem, osnivaju band koji posle par personalnih promena pocinje da radi u standardnoj postavi sa novosadskim bubnjarem Nenadom Divnicem s' kim snimaju svoj prvi album pod nazivom GOBLINI. Album izlazi 1994. godine u izdanju Myusic Yuser (Novi Sad). Nakon izlaska albuma band se promotivno pojavljuje na par bitnijih festivala gde dobija odlicne kritike od kojih su narocito bitni Grafiti Avangarde u Novom Sadu i Brzi Bendovi Srbije u Beogradu. Nakon toga band od izdavacke kuce Metropolis Records iz Beograda dobija ponudu da uradi novo izdanje na kojem bi bile zastupljene odredjene pesme sa prvog izdanja (njih pet), kao i novih sest pesama. Razlog promene izdavaca je bio veoma los medijski rad izdavaca iz Novog Sada. Logican nastavak je bio izdanje koje se pojavljuje u septembru pod nazivom ISTINITE PRICE I DEO. Ubrzo nakon toga krece dobro organizovana medijska kampanja koja prouzrokuje pocetak turneje koja ce se zaustaviti u januaru 1998. godine.

 X Centar - Biografija

Projekat X-CENTAR stvoren je maja 2001. godine saradnjom Stanimira Lukica - Stace (ex SUNSHINE, ex BLOODBATH) i Zorana Kokanovica - Kokana (ex OVERDOSE, programing za muziku filma "Munje") s idejom da se napravi muzika sa HEAVY zvukom, zivim instrumentima i elektronikom. U prvoj fazi rada nastaje dosta muzickog materijala, sto rezultira odlukom da se osnuje bend. Tokom leta 2001. godine prikljucuje im se bubnjar Vladan Cevetkovic - Cvek (ex VAN GOGH, ex ZABRANJENO PUSENJE, ex BABE) i pevac Mirko Arsenijevic - Roki (ex SWITCH). Bend tokom zime 2001 - 2002. u svom HOME studiju zavrsava rad na muzici koja je cross-over (heavy metal, hip hop, progressive, techno i elektro pop) sa jakim gitarskim rifovima, dominatnom ritam sekcijom, elektronskim zvukom i tekstovima koji pokrivaju sustinska pitanja zivota (religija, ljubav, politika, buducnost).

 Metaroth - Biografija

Metaroth je grupa formirana 1997. godine u gradu Bursa / Turska. Iako bi se njihov muzicki stil mogao okarakterisati kao cross-over i thrash metal, ovaj band je odlucio da sam sebi ne postavlja cvrste stilske ograde. Tokom 2001. godine izdali su demo EP - "Trajedy", a 2004. godine i debut album - "Meta non Grata". Slusatelji muzicko-informativne emisije Jeans generacija uskoro ce cuti nekoliko pjesama sa njihovog debut albuma.

 Jonathan Richman -, ljubav

Uopce ne kuzim zasto Mog Dobrog Prijatelja (u nastavku teksta MDP) Jonathana nisu zavoljeli. On je postao neka vrsta sifre kojom se iniciras unutar vrlo dobro zatvorenog r'n'r kruga i otkrivas da imas i onu njezniju stranu. Da nije sve samo van_tu_tri_fo gzzzz. Koliko znam, prvi koji je javno obznanio svoju odusevljenost likom i djelom MDP Jonathana bio je Petar Lukovic, koji je neskriveno opisivao koliko ga je poetika i svijet Jonathan Richmana, jos od prvog albuma Modern Loversa, udarala ispod i iznad pojasa, koliko je stihova potpisanih od tog simpaticnog covjeka godinama sluzilo kao mast za vidanje rana. I puno njegovih recenica bih sad bez puno razmisljanja prepisao, ali necu.

 MC5 - It's time to testify...

Stigla je vijest da MC5 sviraju 01.03.2005. godine u zagrebackoj u Tvornici. Na stageu ce se pojaviti prezivjela trojica iz originalne postave plus gosti - Handsome Dick Manitoba, Lisa iz Bellraysa i Gilby Clark iz Guns 'n' Roses! Postoji i DVD sa snimkom tih reunion koncerata, postoji prica da je super, postoji i sumnja da je to cirkus. I postoji to MC5 naslijedje, repertoar banda koji je jako dobro znao kako te veceri rasturiti publiku i - sebe. Malo je bendova uspjelo postici takav intenzitet nastupa uzivo i, nakon odgledanog Stooges ludila, odlazak na ovaj koncert je bas glupo nekome objasnjavati...
