Crosby Stills & Nash

Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) are a folk rock/rock supergroup made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, also known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) when joined by occasional fourth member Neil Young. They are noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on music and culture. By early 1968, Buffalo Springfield had also disintegrated over personal issues, and after aiding in putting together the band’s final album, Stephen Stills found himself unemployed by the summer.

Fuzz

1. Fuzz is the loud. psychedelic-minded power chord rock project of Ty Segall and Charlie Moonheart. Play it loud enough, and it should bring to mind the sounds of the late 60s and early 70s — think of Jimi Hendrix, and the like. “This Time I Got a Reason” is the A-side to the “This Time I Got a Reason” 7” that Chicago-based label, Trouble in MInd Records recently released. http://troubleinmindrecs.com/bands/fuzz.html

Note To Self: Don’t Die!. Claire Banfield - vocals
Gerard Rada Nedich - guitars, drums, bass, piano etc... They are a true DIY band. They record their songs themselves, design and build their own website and even sell their songs as mp3 downloads on their website. They have been compared to Blondie, PJ Harvey and The Breeders although they would say they just write songs that they like to listen to and would hate to be pigeonholed. They record their songs in Gerard's spare bedroom on a cheap Apple Mac Mini and Garageband software that came with the computer.
