Fishboy

Fishboy is a four-piece eccentric indie pop band from Denton, TX that began as the bedroom solo project of front man Eric Michener. He was given the nickname on a middle-school field trip after a dare to pluck and swallow a fish at the Dallas World Aquarium. Six years and several shoe boxes full of cassette tapes later, Michener moved from the suburbs to the Texas rock-and-roll Mecca of Denton with a handful of low budget recordings released by the close-knit Austin music collective Business Deal Records.

'I was mostly a rock type, going to shows weekly, buying demo tapes, fanzines and everything linked to the music community. This began my vinyl craze. From this background I started making mix-tapes and obsessing about concepts like flow, and already near the turn of the century came the ever growing electronic side of things, first from synth pop, ambient and electro until finally admitting (not easily) I actually enjoyed house and techno - mostly on the DIY, primitive and raw side of it which I compare with rock aesthetics.

Morgan Heritage

Morgan Heritage is a reggae band formed by five children of famed reggae-artist Denroy Morgan. Despite their relative youth, they have been referred to as "reggae royalty". Having grown up in their father's music studio in the U.S. the group, then consisting of eight of the children, made their first appearance at Reggae Sunsplash in Jamaica. They were subsequently signed by MCA and released their debut album Miracles in 1994. They have since criticized Miracles as being overly pop-influenced.
