Rita Martinson ..

[1972]
Lyrics and Music by Rita Martinson
Performed by Rita Martinson


Rita Martinson


Il brano fa parte della colonna sonora dei film "F.T.A" di Francine Parker, sul tour antimiliatrista "Free The Army" (o "Fuck The Army") del 1972, e Sir! No Sir! di David Zeiger, il documentario del 2005 sul movimento dei soldati americani contro la guerra in Vietnam.

Eric Walker ..

Eric Walker’s career in entertainment began in the early eighties in acting. He is most well known for the two movies he starred in as Mace Towani for George Lucas in the Star Wars spin off known as The Ewok Adventures.
 
It was High School at LACHSA that he began his artistic journey into the uncompromising creative depth of music and all it has to offer. But he wasn’t satisfied with just knowing how to execute mere music play and this would lead Eric to purchasing his first keyboard, a Roland synthesizer. This allowed him to practice at home with no limit access to embedding himself into his endeavor to attain some kind of admirable mastery of the music he loved so much.  (as compiled on the Eric Walker website)

    Bio

    When Australian band Dingo Landlord moved from Cape Cockburn (NT, Australia, near Croker Island) to Amsterdam (Holland) in search for fame, fortune, drugs, booze and loose women, they instantly found a couple of these aspirations to have come true upon arrival. (Read loose women, booze and drugs a plenty.) Ironically, just after two weeks in Holland they met Holistic healer Raoulfo Arnolfolonzo who convinced them to end their grievous ways by making them renounce drugs and alcohol altogether. This, sadly, made the lose interest in women as well. Clean and sober and with too much time on their hands they met up with Brit guitarist Raedolph Huffington and formed the band Whipping Pole (now with Nigel St. Davids only on vocal duties instead of 6 strings as well). Their first album "Eat The Meat" was not received well by just about anybody and they were swiftly dropped by their management and the record subsequently was never released. Quickly they formed a new band EcP79 (same line up, different name) and went to work on their soon to be finished next album and current masterpiece “When The Win Was One”. Hopefully this will lead to some proper management representation in the future and who knows, maybe even the fulfillment of their remaining aspirations.

Marble Sheep ..

MARBLE SHEEP were founded in 1987 by Ken Matsutani(ex WHITE HEAVEN). First the band started its musical activity under the name of "MARBLE SHEEP & THE RUN-DOWN SUN'S CHILDREN." The good old MARBLE SHEEP passed through many styles of psychedila like Minimal Music, Heavy Rock and S.F. Jam Psych as both band and music continued to evolve.

The name MARBLE SHEEP is highly esteemed overseas as a fixture of the Japanese rock scene since early times.  MARBLE SHEEP started their real overseas activity from 2002. They obtained overseas record company deals too and had many live shows in USA and Europe. In contrast with the long history of the band, MARBLE SHEEP are described as "Merry Pranksters of the 21st Century." This can be attributed to the merry and energetic live performances which can flip out even full-grown-ups while taking listeners to the Space World easily.

So, eternal 21st Century boys & girls, We wanna be your SNAPPY TOYS!!!! (as compiled on the bands website).

The Marginals ...

Keeping with Pluto Radio's international involvement with music, the Marginals are a hard rocking band from Portugal... They have a great raw sound that is indicative of great rock and roll music.  Somehow beastly, yet sensitive all in one.

Asteroid on Pluto Radio ..


The history of Asteroid is a psychedelic space saga, timeless and endless, with no upside or downside, but with a beautiful ending. The band, formed during the winter of 2003, has undertaken a long musical journey and developed a sound well fit to the trio constellation. After being formed as a regular stoner band, it didn’t take long before new grounds were conquered. Since then, influences have been collected from blues and British 70’s classic rock, but also from Swedish traditional folk music.

Asteroid is now back with their second album, called simply “II”. It is a more evolved but also relaxed and groovy follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album S/T. This time they locked themselves up in a studio deep in the forest, trying to capture the raw and naked sound and feeling in their music. You will hear a tighter, heavier, but also darker Asteroid. You will still recognize the characteristic energy in the sound and feel the joy delivered by the musicians.

This record is like transporting yourself back to the psychedelic woods of Sweden, but unlike other 70’s influences bands this is also fresh and unique on its own. Asteroid is today a well-known live act all over Europe with constant touring and a reputation of wild and sweaty live shows (as stated in the bands website) . Hold on to your hats!  ASTEROID IS BACK!

Red 13 on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream ..

ReD 13ReD 13 Bio:

ReD 13 are a badass �hard-rockin� band from Medway in Kent. We have a plan to revive rock from it�s �skirt wearing� defunct ways... And put the trousers back on it!!!

The Four Elements...

We rumble like thunder on the solid beats of our drummer- 'Big Red' Pete. We will rock your asses and rip your face off with our �evil riffage� courtesy of the one, the only, Pablo 'Hendrix ain't got **** on me' Diablo. We got the best bassist for miles around backing us up, with some �funky like a monkey fucking a chunky junky� bass lines... Lak is the main man. Where would a band be without a beer fuelled **** singing his heart out in a way that would make a million bluesmen proud???... That�s what you get from Jon-Lee Kynslay.

Our Sound...

Imagine kidnapping Nuno Bettencourt, Iron Maiden, AC/DC The Chilli Peppers, Skid Row and G.W.A.R... Stuffing them in a room together with a bunch of instruments, pointing a gun at their heads and telling them to write the greatest album ever?!!... The end product STILL wouldn't be anywhere near as good as we are... But it's the closest you're gonna get.

Dexter Jones Circus Orchestra ..


Dexter Jones Circus Orchestra’s music withholds hints of Swedish progressive rock combined with powerful guitar melodies and catchy drums. It stretches itself between hard driven riffs and acoustic ballads. The band has been compared to everything from Mammoth Volume and Bob Dylan to Blue Oyster Cult and Thin Lizzy. Comparisons aside: this is probably how the 70’s would sound today. Its a true gem with endless potential! (as compiled on DJCOs webpage).

Thee Stag Knights ..

Thee Stag Knights first came together in early 2000 as a three piece featuring Ben Butler on guitar, Adele Daniele on drums and vocals and Iain McIntyre on bass and shouting. Informed by a love of raw 60s rock n roll and trashy exotica. Playing numerous shambolic shows at the fabulous Town Hall and other illustrious venues around Melbourne the band recorded their debut album with Steve Hickmott in September 2000.
Thee Stag Knights fully reloaded in 2005 with the addition of Laila Marie Costa Ramone on guitar, vocals and keyboards. Playing a bunch of shows, mainly at The Tote, the band recorded "Santa's Been A Naughty Boy" for the 2005 Rock Against Bullshit Christmas compilation... In 2006 the band have honed their twin guitar assault adding a number of new songs, playing The Tote and recently laying down a bunch of tracks with Laura MacFarlane at Backyard Charlies.

The SlimP ..


The SlimP started in 2003 as a quartet. All four were deeply influenced by wave music and bands like The Cure during the 80ies. But they didn't want to warm up old stuff. ;-) With two bass-guitars and a female vocalist, they soon found their own personality and their unique sound: darkwave full of melancholy, leading you into a new dimension of music. This sound was supplemented by a second guitar during 2004/05, adding a dash of hardness to the music and to the second album "Some seconds Later". Now the four original members of The SlimP are on the way to new, even darker sounds. They celebrated their 5th anniversary with the digital album "Recall 2003-2005". Their third studio-album "Wavelands" was released on January, 30th 2009 (Danse Macabre / af-music). 



The SlimP can really deliver.....they 'deserve to be heard'!

Leftover Salmon ...

The sound of Colorado’s legendary Leftover Salmon is unmistakable: fluid, loose-limbed, and simultaneously rootsy and daring. Fusing an unrivaled improvisational fervor to a dizzying combination of bluegrass, Cajun, funk, Southern rock, boogie, Caribbean, Latin, and jazz influences, Leftover Salmon has earned a legion of diehard fans, critical accolades, and a reputation as one of the most exciting, engaging concert experiences to ever hit the road.

The origins of Leftover Salmon are as intriguing as their name. The group was born in Boulder, Colorado in 1989, as the result of a merger between Vince Herman (from Cajun/Calypso/jugband The Salmonheads) and Drew Emmitt and Mark Vann (of progressive bluegrass Left Hand String Band.) (as compiled on the bands website)

The Boxettes ..


The Boxettes are an all-female vocal group based in London . Their distinctive sound makes fine use of the complementing styles of their voices: Alyusha, Yvette, Neo and Harriet, and current World Female Beatbox Champion Bellatrix- all combining to evocative and powerful effect.

Since forming at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2007, the band have played nearly every festival in England, put on several shows in France, and toured India. Closer to home, The Boxettes have put on shows at some of London’s finest venues, including Ministry of Sound and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The Boxettes have built up a fierce reputation in the past year, establishing themselves on the Chai Wallahs 2010 tour as one of the most exciting emerging bands in the UK.

The Boxettes have an unconventional a-capella sound with tight beatbox work set against dreamy, sundrenched harmonics- as each of the girls take turns in either narrating over a melody, providing chord work, beatboxing or fx sounds with their mouths. The Boxettes are by now well used to the expressions of disbelief in audience faces- the extended vocal techniques of their five members combining to elicit an enormous sound, as visceral as it is delicate, performed with swagger as well as good nature (as compiled from the bands website).

The Great Hollywood Hangover ...

Lee's interview with Nancy Deedrick is currently in rotation on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream.   It is an informal discussion about life on the Sunset Strip back in the sixties and seventies.  Ms. Deedrick's website is titled THE GREAT HOLLYWOOD HANGOVER (http://www.hollywoodhangover.com/)  Nancy shares stories of what it was like living on the Strip in the mid to late sixties and early seventies.  The Whiskey Go Go, The Roxy, The London Fog, The Classic Cat, The Body Shop...   Lee also includes an audio recording of Nancy and some friends getting tossed out of a motel for playing their guitars too loud - perhaps most notable, Mr. Joe Cocker.  The following is an excerpt from Nancy's website: "

If you hung out on "The Strip" in the sixties, then you know exactly what the "Hollywood Hangover" is. If you were not there, then you probably wish you had been, so here is where you'll find information about the people who lived in the grandest part of the world during the greatest era of them all. 

What I have read and seen so far about that period, would have given me the wrong impression, had I not lived there myself.  The Jim Morrison movie for instance, was disturbing--the way we were portrayed.  It was misleading. Whose impression was THAT?!  ...and oh so negative!  That's not the way I remember it, folks. 

I don't remember anything bad about the sixties. The bad stuff was minimal; and it's not something I ever want to zero in on like so many other writers have done.  Every movie, every documentary--all negative or sleazy.  We weren't angels, but we weren't offensive pigs, either. Our young people are being deprived of the truth, because they have been given a warped notion of what went on. I was there, and it was wonderful." 

 

"Nancy's just a cool lady"- Lee

EikoState - Spanish Metal!


“Rarely does life spare you a second chance, and it is true that not everybody deserves it.” This is not the case for EikoState's members, creators in the past of one of the most brilliant pages in spanish metal history under the name of ‘After feed-back‘.   It’s been a long time, too much for their fans, who didn’t know anything about them. However, the wait has come to an end, and the main protagonists have renewed.
This change has not just brought a brand new name and new band members, but a new and amazing collection of songs that will place them where they belong.

More melodic, as intense as those former times, EikoState's work shows a band with no limitations, joining with skillfulness in a way that no one has ever done before until now, the message of bands such as dredge, tool or deftones, mixed with oriental folklore elements (as compiled on their website).
“A combination that apparently could turn weird, tastes delicious on their hands.”


I love these guys!  SK-

Jackson Rodgers - Satisfy the Need!


Jackson Rodgers' story began shortly after he learned how to write about himself in the third person. Dragged regularly by his father to the church of the New Traditionalists, Jackson learned quickly to heed the lessons of Fathers Desert Rose, Yoakam, Earle, and Stuart, as well as those of Sisters McKee and Carlson. Alas, like all children, Jackson the Rodgers eventually began to yearn for something more; and so he began to seek out the teachings of prior generations, such as those of his namesake, Jackson the Browne. Rodgers' first, fleeting step outside the teachings of his youth enthralled his young mind, and so he strove onward on his quest to acquire more disparate musical knowledge, soon discovering such luminaries as Sirs Jennings and Nelson, as well as His Highness of Broken Hearts, King George. Further excursions would bring him to know the wisdom of the ones they call Dylan, Springsteen, Parsons, Graffin, and Gurewitz. For many years, young Rodgers would languish in the thinking that he could never properly apply all he had learned. And then, one day, 'round the age of 16, he wrote "Satisfy the Need," and he saw that it was good. Thus began his songwriting journey, which so far has culminated in two albums' worth of material and the demos on this page (as stated on Jackon's webpage). Where things go from here, only circumstance knows...

SHAPES OF RACE CARS - Triumph and Fragility


Based out of Silverlake, CA Shapes of Race Cars is a local favorite. The heart of SRC is the best friend duo, singer / songwriter Dylan Champion and bass player Dale Zyla. The two mid-western transplants became pals on the East side music scene around the turn of the millennium. With their drummer Kaumyar they just completed their stunning new record Beauty Beat – the follow up to their critically lauded indie rock debut, Power, in ’07.

Beauty Beat takes Champion’s established knack for hooks and melodies beyond the garage rock thump of Power to a more open, sweepingly emotive sound. Shapes still have irresistible fun with tube amp party tracks like “Get Melted!” and “The Dirty Girls”, but they’ve brought in piano and strings and cleared away layered distorted guitars to reveal the simple power of great bass lines, beats and melodies.

Songs like the heartbreaking “Boring Villains”, the mini-epic “World’s End” and the hypnotically spare “Bigger Than Sin” deal in triumph and fragility – grandeur and vulnerability. “We’ve never tried to fit into a scene just to be popular,” says Champion of the Shapes of Race Cars sound. “We’ve let the songs lead us to who we are as a band. You have to be a little brave, I guess, cuz sometimes it’s easier to copy what seems hot at the moment, but the reward is so much greater.” The reward for Shapes has included lots of great ink, a fearsomely loyal international fan base and seeing their music featured in dozens of TV shows, films, video games and national ad campaigns.

“I love great songwriters more than hip trends,” says Champion. “I’ve always done this for the joy of a song that makes life more vivid, not for red carpets, vip parties and limousines… Although, if I’m in a limousine, I’m not gonna mind it, as long as there’s great music.” (all as compiled from the bands website)
