The Vigilantes

The Vigilantes' music, while unique, is reminiscent of the country-n-western music of Carl Smith, Hank Williams Sr., Faron Young, Lefty Frizzell, Ray Price, etc., when individual artists were very distinctive and entertainment was clean, wholesome, and family oriented. The only criteria The Vigilantes used in selecting material for their shows was that it had to be a "good" song, and one they could make very dance-able.

Liberator

Liberator first got together 1993 in Malmo, Sweden. Starting out, they earned a local reputation as a highly energetic live act, with music firmly rooted in the 2-tone tradition, spiced up with some classic, old school ska.
At this time it was mostly covers on the menu (e.g. Madness, Specials, The Beat), but soon original songs were made as well. The band hooked up with manager Tobbe Lorentz, and together they were able to land a recording deal with punk/hardcore label Burning Heart Records.

Her Bright Skies

Her Bright Skies have developed a distinctly modern sound, with piercing melodies, emotive vocals and an ever-rising tidal wave of fans - all on their own terms. “Causing A Scene” displays a band which has purified its sacred mission to carry your ass into a world where music is first and foremost a party – not psychoanalysis. With both feet firmly entrenched in the American tradition of melodic punk, pop and metal, Her Bright Skies have developed a way to lift themselves out of small town boredom all the while creating their own niche: energetic rock conveyed with a touch of that indefinable...
