Palace

1. Palace is one of the many names used at one point or another by Will Oldham. Palace came after he named himself Palace Brothers for the first LP, before Palace Music, and a few years before the world knew him as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. According to Oldham, records released under the "Palace" moniker were usually recorded in the winter time, and feature some of his darkest, most challenging songs.

Oblivians

The Oblivians were an American garage punk trio from 1993 to 1998. In the 1990s, their blues-infused brand of unpolished, bravado, crudely-recorded punk rock made them one of the most popular and prominent bands within the underground garage punk scene. Formed in Memphis, Tennessee, the band consisted of three members -- Greg Cartwright, Jack Yarber, and Eric Friedl -- who alternated between instruments on stage and in the studio, each member serving as vocalist, guitarist, and drummer, in turn.

Janey and the Ravemen

Goes like this..... Johnny Kaiser (drummer) and his wife Jane (singer) decided they'd like to record some tunes together.
They asked Brad Dallaston to join them on bass - they now had a stable unit which could play together.
They then initiated the talents of like- minded guitarists, who joined them from far flung places such as Essex, Scotland and Norway as and when they could, with the prospect of recording some songs. Very soon this happened and "Stay Away From Boys", their first LP was made, featuring Kaiser George and Ed Turner on guitars.

Cocktail Slippers

This foxy female fivesome from Oslo, Norway, is the perfect mixture of sweet and sour, combining girl-group harmonies and sass with gritty rock 'n' roll fervor to produce a high-octane hybrid that should have all the hepcats dancing. The ladies, whose CD happens to be one of the first releases from Steven Van Zandt's new label, comprise more than just an all-female version of early, hard-rocking Blondie. This is a non-standard garage-hard rock-surf-pop band that manages to mix up the formula to keep things fresh.

Dragster

Dragster is the name of two different bands. One the project of singer-songwriter Deborah Cavallero and Sleater-Kinney's Lora MacFarlane. The music is jangly pop, reminiscent of Jenny Toomey's older work. Dragster are also a Punk n Roll 5 Piece from Coventry, UK. With fast pounding drums, smooth guitar riffs and a growl from frontwoman Fi that'll blow you away (www.myspace.com/dragstersuicide)

The Fuzztones

The Fuzztones are a garage rock revival band formed in the 1980s, playing straight into the 1990s and now. Founded by singer-guitarist Rudi Protrudi in New York City in 1981, the band has gone through several member changes but is currently active in Europe. Dismissed by some critics and listeners as a "bar band" or unoriginal - and even plagaristic - they maintained a strong fan base in New York, in Europe and in Los Angeles, where Rudi would move in 1987 after the breakup of the original band, to organize a new Fuzztones.
