THE DOTS - Alternative / Pop Punk / Powerpop

The Dots were simply the best band in New York City from the late seventies to the mid eighties. Led by guitarist Rick Garcia, a prolific songwriter who has been described as 'dangerously brilliant', the star of the band was lead singer Jimmi Quidd, formerly James Hatzidimitriou, who attended high school in Athens, Greece with rock solid bass player Leigh Sioris. These three made up the core of the Dots and were joined by a number of top NY musicians for different periods of the bands history including Alison East, Jimmy Agnello, Nat Seeley, Vinnie Signorelli, Billy Bell, Al Maddy and Jeff Formosa. Their songs were finely crafted punk-pop with clever lyrics and unforgettable hooks. With a sound like the Move at their best the band often opened with 'I Can Hear the Grass Grow' before crusing through a one hour set of perfect 3 minute songs, played at high volume and high energy. The Dots toured Germany several times where they were based in Berlin and very popular, putting out three albums there. RETURN OF THE DOTS, I CAN SEE YOU, and a live album from their last tour.

DEAR WOLF - Alternative / Pop / Rock

The Dear Wolf already with such diverse musicians such as Slash from Guns and Roses, the shared Queen drummer Roger Taylor, or even with underground greats like the Young Gods, the stage floor, is just now does not really matter, but it belongs to the history of the band and also shows a little of their character. The band from Krefeld was founded in 1988 and was one of the early nineties with the better known bands of the German indie scene. She earned through songs like "Summertime Train", "Mary Ann" or "Lost," a respectable cult status and even emerging at that time music channel MTV and VIVA did not pass the four.
Now, after almost 25 years with "Hello Stars," their seventh album - not much for such a long time and yet one can speak of continuity - and also of development. For between the rough Rohperlen the early years and recent albums are worlds apart and yet one hears unmistakable Dear Wolf - and like Alexander Classen in the preface said: "... one changes, develops and changes and even over time, your music evolve further, without forgetting their past and your own experiences and history can."

MY SLEEPING KARMA - Sound of Liberation

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates a significant impression by remaining silent.

My Sleeping Karma combines the organic aspect of psychedelic groove rock with emotional shades of aphasian landscapes. That was the inTention of the debut album and it still remains. Guitar, bass and drums in love with a soundboard. My Sleeping Karma's album "Satya" released september 20th on Elektrohasch Records. And time is the major keyword in the context of "Satya". The conditioned mind is always moving between the past and future, and this movement activity creates the illusion of time. Use your illusion and you will discover the voice within. My Sleeping Karma is enlightment.

Now is the time to take it to the next level. My Sleeping Karma's new album "Tri" is out now on Elektrohasch Records. (as compiled on the bands website)

ABSENT ME - Alternative / Progressive / Rock

Formed in 2000 by Brian Rogers(singer), and Curtis Harvey(guitar), Absent Me is a 4 man Progressive rock band from Sacramento Ca. In 2002, the jazz sound was injected with the addition of Job(bass), only to complete the ultimate capabilities in 2004 when Don(drums) joined to write and record all new music for a full length L.P., entitled "Hate To Wake You" , released September 2006.

Brian developed his haunting mix of melody and primal scream after 8 years of vocal training, 13 years of composing, and co-founding the 90's alt rock band Above.  Don's been in the Sacramento scene since the late 80's with bands like I.G.D., Diesel, OTIS, F.R.E.D., BFE. and MDSO, he is a hard hitting drummer with thundering chops and a commanding presence on any stage.  Curtis has been formally trained in Jazz and Classical guitar styles, has been playing guitar for 19 years, and composing for 12. He has a Degree in Composition from the University of Oregon and is a combination of academic precision and soulful creativity.  Job is a bass instructor with 15 years playing rock & metal bass, and a Lifetime of freeform, abstract, and fusion-based jazz through Dallas and Austin, TX in the 90's until finally settling with Absent Me in 2002. He plays the bass with a unique multi-timbred right hand style that matches perfectly with the skull folding rhythms from Don, the huge waves and subtle sonic nuances of Curtis, and the gripping effect of Brians story-telling vocal style.
