ZZG on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream.


ZZG "...the originality of the music, and ZZG's attempt to reflect and re-imagine early rock, is what really shines here. Far from the mainstream, and certainly no where near current modern rock trends, ZZG's Trapped in the Mirror is an interesting, innovative and entertaining platter of retro progressive rock. Recommended. 4.0/5.0 Review: Craig Hartranft, 07.26.2010 ZZG were formed in 2007 when Guitarist Daniel Roberts and Bassist Keith Matthews formed a band that reflected the heyday of late 60's and early 70's hard rock. "We wanted to write guitar and bass hooks that people would still have stuck in their heads hours and hours after hearing the music. The riffs of Deep Purple were our benchmark". After a few false starts and lots of writing drummer Craig Birnie joined the band. Dan took on the role of singer/guitarist but an element was still missing. Finally Stu Mitchell joined the band bringing modern tones. Stu balanced the old world rock feel with his own unique guitar sound. The ZZG band sound was complete. After refining the first collection of songs the band went offline to record with "Trapped in The Mirror" completed early 2010. In May 2010, ZZG joined UK publicist Nicky Baldrian from Two Side Moon Promotions to promote "Trapped in the Mirror" in the UK and Western Europe. The band is now playing live regularly and is writing again. The first new songs Red Dawn" and "California rolling" are complete with more being arranged right now. A second album is planned for early 2011. (AS COMPLIED FROM THE BAND'S WEBSITE).

Secret Skwirl on Pluto Radio!

In late 2009, a recording engineer (Sheldon Gomberg) and a friend of his drove by a garage sale, in Tarzana, CA; and noticed a stack of 2 inch tape boxes. After a brief discussion with the homeowner, he found out that the tapes had apparently been left in a closet, under the stairs of her home, and were there when she moved in. She found the tapes when the wood floors of the house were being refinished. She was the fourth owner of the home, which was built (according to her) in 1972. There were 23 boxes of tape; which Sheldon bought for the forty-seven bucks that he had in his wallet, at the time....  (more info can be found @

ALPHA PREVAIL - Modern Arena Rock

With roots in Orange County, CA, Alpha Prevail is made up of four young men with a lust for life and a passion for good, honest music.  Alpha Prevail mixes a strong pallete of hard rock force with colorful artistic technicality. Their sound can be defined as Modern Arena Rock.

In a phrase, ALPHA PREVAIL can be defined as Self-Actualization; the achievement of one's full potential through creativity, independence, spontaneity, and a grasp of the real world. Regardless of what your passion is, ALPHA PREVAIL is the harnessing of that emotion, the recognition of the talents you possess, and the channeling of the two to achieve your goals and dreams.

Black Wyrm Seed on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream...

"This an amazing band with vibe totally it's own.  Brilliant to listen to after the burn." - Lee Crisman.

Sickened by the sad state of modern mainstream music, the gents from Black Wyrm Seed bartered for a kilo of “magic beans” in a backalley deal somewhere on the South Side of Chicago, and shortly thereafter found themselves in an utterly foreign — and yet strangely inviting — domain. There are some who might refer to the place as “parts unknown”; others might call it “the great beyond”; and its exact coordinates remain unclear. But this much is certain: it lies somewhere between 1966 and the mountains of the moon…and to Black Wyrm Seed, it is now home.

Allgood on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream.

Allgood was originally called the Allgood Music Company. The band was based out of Athens, GA. Through constant touring, the band grew a following in the southeastern United States. Constantly changing set lists and additions of new songs appealed to the masses. The band created a demo tape of original songs entitled "Reel to Real". Taking only one day to record all 8 songs, the band used this for promotion to get gigs at bars and colleges. Next up was a 45 rpm called "Meat Salad". Meat Salad was sent to the college radio stations looking for more exposure. In 1991, the band recorded "Ride the Bee". Ride the Bee consisted of a few re-recorded songs found on "Reel to Real" and a few new songs. Most notably is the epic song "Trilogy". This is Allgood's Freebird. In 1993, the band was signed to A&M records. The band came out with another CD called 'Uncommon Goal'. This album included songs that the band was already including in their live shows. One of the great things that Allgood did was to always include new songs. As a follow-up to Uncommon Goal, the band put out a live album called "Kickin' and Screamin'. This highlighted songs from Ride the Bee and Uncommon Goal along with two unreleased songs, Blood and Sugar Sweet. Allgood were consumate songwriters. They were constantly evolving their songs. You can see the evolution of their songs from "Reel to Real" to "Ride the Bee". The band was also co-headlining the HORDE tour, increasing their exposure to the masses. The band officially called it quits in late 1995. Recently the band has decided to perform a reunion show at the Georgia Theatre in Athens. The "Theatre", as it is referred to by Georgia natives is considered home to Allgood. This reunion will take place April 8th, 2006 and will feature original band members Mike Sain on bass, Corky Jones singing lead and playing rhythm guitar, and Clay Fuller on lead guitar. To complete the line up, John and Noel Felty from Jupiter Coyote will be sitting in on guitar and drums. 2010 the band reforms with the original three: Jones, Fuller and Sain to be joined by Noel Felty on drums and Neal Lucas on guitar. ..  (as compiled on the band's website)

The Happy Planets...

WHITE TRASH WHIPLASH - Southern Rock, Trash, Country...Cheeder calls it "Dirt Rock".

Cheeder and the Dr. like to write songs, so they did...
The boys came together to make those songs fly.
... We made a record.
We played a ton of juke joints, two bit road houses, bars & festivals all over the damn place.
The crowds got bigger & the shows got crazier.
All along, kept writin' songs.
The train was rollin' down a rickety set of rails at 180 mph.
Cheeder, Dr. & the band all lost their F*#ckin' minds in the crazy mixed up world of Rock N' Roll.
The Dr. thought he would retire to Florida.
After an almost two-year hiatus, with the Dr. out of retirement, the WhiteTrash WhipLash rides again.
We have a Sh*t-Ton of songs we've never recorded & a whole lot of gas left in the tank of this old tractor!

Their new record "WHISKEY GUN" dropped Summer for the WhiteTrash WhipLash coming soon to a stage near you!! (as compiled on the bands website)

ELVIS DELUXE - Stoner Rock/Psychedelic/Garage

In 2002 four long-time friends who had been involved in different bands (mostly HC/post HC/rock stuff like Ahimsa, Coalition, Afraid of That Day) started to jam together playing what they had a great affection for their entire lives: ‘70s-influenced stoner rock.

In 2003 they recorded a demo which turned out to be pretty popular among the slowly growing breed of their fans. Soon they became one of... the most active Warsaw bands, crossing all the genres and being present at different types of shows from punk rock to rock’n’roll to hardcore and rocking the nights out like crazy. Every once in a while they hit the road to gig Poland, Lithuania, Germany, ending up in some Czech clubs, making a nice soundtrack to bar fights there.
The world rolled on, the boys played more gigs (sharing the stage with, among others, Karma to Burn, Jucifer or Parkway Drive) and finally there came the time to reveal what was going on in their heads. On “Favourite State of Mind” the sound is full of space, stylish and the non-obvious guitars are accompanied by multi-layered vocals.   Elvis Deluxe applies a strong rock’n’roll punch to your jaw that will make you hear colours and see the divine beauty of their music.

The dudes have charisma and have the skills and even though they’re taking it easy, they take it seriously. The years of long going friendship and jamming together made them only tighter and hungrier for good shows and the road adventures. They will roll slow and if you stand on their way... well, you can be sure to roll with them... (as compiled on the bands website)
