Concrete Blonde

Concrete Blonde is an alternative rock band dating from the early 1980s to the early 1990s (and re-formed again in the 2000s). They are best known for the poignant songwriting and vocals of Johnette Napolitano. Singer / songwriter / bassist Napolitano formed the band Dream 6 with guitarist James Mankey in Los Angeles in 1982, releasing an eponymous EP in France on the Happy Hermit label in 1983. When they signed with IRS in 1986, labelmate Michael Stipe suggested the name Concrete Blonde, describing the contrast between their hard rock music and introspective lyrics.

Symphony Of Pain

Symphony of Pain is an exquisite marriage of rock, classical, funk and punk music combined with lyrics that explore the pain, sorrow and torment, of a being trapped in a century to which he clearly does not belong. A century where greed and selfishness have replaced love and honour.
