Stoner Rock

Jan Jelinek

Jan Jelinek (whose monikers include Gramm, for Source Records, and Farben), is a Berlin-based producer of electronic music drawing influences from jazz, dub, funk, soul, and house. Prior to releasing on the ~Scape label under his own name, he had put out albums as Farben (for Klang Elektronik). On 2001's Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records, Jelinek manipulates fragments of sound from old jazz recordings, transforming them beyond recognition into completely new pieces of music. On la nouvelle pauvrete, he joins forces with the imaginary band The Exposures, which he himself fabricated.

Ed Rush also has countless releases, notably on No U-Turn, where he and Nico first emphasized the dark era of drum and bass with the masterpiece album Torque, and Metalheadz, where he produced such classics as "The Raven" and "Locust".

Monstertone

Monstertone was founded in January 2007. Guitar player Jeff van Dokcum was thinking about starting a 70's orientated rock band. He had always been inspired by rock bands from the time he was growing up, bands like Led Zep and Sabbath. A couple of years later there were bands like Down, Pantera and Corrosion of Conformity that were also giving him the urge to start a band with all these influences.

Firebird

Firebird is a British blues-rock power trio founded by Bill Steer in 1999. The music style, reminiscent of seventies rock bands such as Cream, is a radical departure from Steer's previous work with grindcore pioneers Napalm Death and death metal band Carcass. Firebird's lineup has seen several drummers and bass players come and go, but Steer's congenial vocals and guitar playing have kept the band's vibe stable. Discography: Firebird (2000), Deluxe (2001), No. 3 (2003) and Hot Wings (2006) Band members:
