ALEX GREENE AND THE ROLLING HEAD ORCHESTRA

The Rolling Head Orchestra plays music from the age of prohibition, be it the 20th century or the 21st. Weaving primitive swing with the rebel music of the 1960s and 70s, they are the sole purveyors of what some call GARAGE JAZZ.

Yet, in the tradition of Duke Ellington, they aspire only to be "beyond category". They offer you a soul sonic spark to jumpstart inner revolutions of the mind, (read more...)

MISTY WHITE

Misty White comes from Pine Bluff, Arkansas. All those who come from there will tell you that it''s hell on earth. And Misty White is an angel. The Devil''s Little Angel, more precisely.

STARETZ

Straight out of the bowels of Bang records, Staretz is the gathering of a few misguided, fanatics of vintage rythm'n'blues and rock'n'roll. They are still some to worry about the famous twelve-bar blues legacy. A smell of Yardbirds, the Kinks, Link Wray, or other small white boys in need of negritude, emanates from their music ...

After three years, a debut album, and gigs in (read more...)

OBITS

Obits. From Brooklyn, New York. For sure, one of the best bands in rock and roll activity on this planet. The real r'n'r, the one that produces an aesthetic discharge in accordance with its time ... We think a bit of the Yardbirds, Fugazi or Television but it's much more than that ... A mixture of hardcore, power pop, all that ultimately transcended by rock and roll ... (read more...)

LES SPURTS

THE ZODIACS

The same causes produce the same effects. The south of the U.S. generated the Unknowns, here in France it's the Zodiacs. Obscure nuggets of rockabilly, white delirious rock'n'roll, Gretsch guitar in a fury, phantoms and zombies of any kind, tubes of Guronzan (pep pills in France), shoes two-tone, here is the universe of the Zodiacs. The fifties revisited in 2008 at the time of genetic mutations of the Island of (read more...)

GUTTERCAT AND THE MILKMEN

En 2007, "Guts" chanteur et compositeur rassemble autour de lui quelques amateurs de Glam et de rock and roll pour fonder les milkmen. Obsédés par les New York Dolls, Mott The Hoople ou les Rolling Stones d'"Exile...", ils reprennent à leur compte tout cet d'univers de rock and rollers décadents.
Avec leurs tricotages de guitares et leurs compositions de haute volée, ils s'imposent (read more...)
