Moxie

There are at least two bands named Moxie. One is from Houston, TX, and there is another in San Diego, CA. The Moxie from Houston formed like many other bands: through a facebook courtship, a midnight Taco Cabana outing, and an STD testing session. Their music could be considered “post-funk," if such a thing existed, and their live shows are worthy of their namesake. Having just completed a national tour this summer (2007) ranging from Texas to New York to Missouri in the Funkwagen, their airport shuttle bus...

R.S.A.G

The following is taken from "The Art of Noise" review of the gig at Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, (26 Oct 2007), With Max Tundra. I guess the precedent of Rarely Seen Above Ground’s stage set-up is those arena shows where Elvis’ old band knock out the cobwebbed chops, while the spectral King phones it in from the big screen. Well, almost, if instead you had the band on screen, and Elvis on the stage, with Elvis singing from behind a drum set, and with a David Byrne kinda cadence. That’d be the precedent.

Daniel Fell

Daniel Fell is a London based musician, most known as the lead singer and one of the founding members of The Argonauts. Fell has also recorded material with The Bon Vivants and Ligers. Currently working on his debut solo album, early offerings have included the caustic acoustic Rubber Ball, the Byrdsesque Chanson and Minefield, a Paisley Park flavoured cautionary tale of repossession in modern times. Loose limbed, just the right side of funk, it typifies what’s on offer at Fell’s table.

Emperor X

Emperor X is a pop/noise/folk music project headed by American musician C. R. Matheny. The project often performs and records with little more than Matheny on an acoustic guitar and a dynamic microphone, but sometimes also employs large groups of musicians on percussion instruments, various electronic noisemakers, brass/woodwind/string ensembles, and traditional rock instruments. The lyrics of Emperor X songs have been described as simultaneously "hallucinatory" and "precise," and discuss subjects ranging from plate tectonics ("A Violent Translation of the Concordia Headscarp")...

The Fumes

1.) Compelling Sydney two-piece, The Fumes burst onto the scene in 2004. The Fumes deliver multi-facetted stylistic raw blues tunes mashed with healthy rock riffs and snappy beats. Steve Merry (Vocals, Guitar) spent 12 months in the U.S where he took on some mentoring from Bob Brozman and an opportunity to immerse himself with many styles of music. It helped define and develop The Fumes. The Fumes complete with the addition of Joel Battersby, who had been drumming with members of The Beautiful Girls, proceeded to churn out an 8-track demo.
