Rocket from the Crypt part I

Rocket from the Crypt was an American rock band led by John Reis, formed in 1990 in San Diego, California and disbanded in 2005. Of Reis' many musical endeavors, Rocket from the Crypt were the most successful and most internationally recognized. The band gained critical praise and the attention of major record labels after the release of their 1992 album "Circa: Now!", leading to a recording contract with Interscope Records. They experienced a surge of popularity with the release of the albums "Scream, Dracula, Scream!" (1995) and "RFTC "(1998), accompanied by numerous vinyl singles and EPs released on independent labels. However, album sales were not as high as expected and Interscope soon turned their attention to higher-grossing acts. The band left the label, and shortly thereafter drummer Atom Willard departed the group. After a period of inactivity in 1999 and 2000, during which Reis formed Hot Snakes and Sultans and launched his Swami Records label, the band signed to Vagrant Records and recruited new drummer Ruby Mars. They experienced a revitalization of creative energy and released two more albums, but were not as prolific as in the past. Over the next few years the band members drifted into other projects and Rocket from the Crypt became less the focus. They decided to disband in 2005, playing a sold-out farewell show on Halloween in their hometown of San Diego.

The BellRays part I

Vocalist Lisa Kekaula guitarist Bob Venuum formed the BellRays around 1990 in Riverside, CA. Originally, the duo leaned heavily on a vintage R&B sound flecked with smoky jazz overtones. But with the addition of guitarist Tony Fate and Venumm moving to bass, the sound soon began to mix Kekaula's alley cat soul vocals with a biting punk rock bottom end. The "In the Light of the Sun" cassette release appeared in 1993, followed by the "Wall of Soul" 7" two years later. The BellRays issued their debut full-length, "Let It Blast", in 1998 and supported it with an extensive tour that included a particularly fiery appearance at Austin's South by Southwest conference. By now, drummer Ray Chin had joined the fold, and the 'Rays were making waves with their furiously passionate sound. The "Grand Fury" LP dropped in 2001 from Los Angeles indie Upper Cut and was followed by a European release combining it with "Let It Blast". Tours with notables like Rocket From the Crypt and Nashville Pussy continued to spread the word, and In Music We Trust reissued "In the Light of the Sun". 2003 saw the Upper Cut release of "Raw Collection", an odds 'n' sods compilation featuring B-sides, rarities, and vinyl-only material from 1995 through 2002.

The Hellacopters - Goodnight Cleveland

"Goodnight Cleveland" is a fly on the wall documentary following the Hellacopters on their 2002 tour of America. Informed by the techniques of cinema verité and direct cinema developed in the 1960's by master documentary filmmakers, the band is allowed the space to do what they do without intrusions of any kind from the filmmaker, allowing for glimpses into the magical and mundane moments of everyday life in a hard working action rock band abroad. The Hellacopters: Goodnight Cleveland is a relaxed and open-handed portrait of a band on the road. Essential viewing for anyone pondering a career in the music business, or anyone merely curious.

The Head Cat

The Head Cat is an all star group consisting of Motorhead's Lemmy, Slim Jim Phantom, drummer from Stray Cats, and Danny Harvey, guitarist from 13 Cats. Nine of the fifteen songs in their debut are Buddy Holly's tunes, while the rest are cover versions of songs from Jimmy Reed, T-Bone Walker, Lloyd Price, Carl Perkins, Elvis and Johnny Cash.

Yawning Man

Yawning Man was born in the middle ‘80s and it’s currently formed by Alfredo Hernandez - drums (ex-Kyuss, ex-Queens of the Stone Age); Mario Lalli - bass (Fatso Jetson, Orquesta del Desierto, Across the River) and Gary Arce - guitars (The Sort of Quartet, Oddio Gasser).
Yawning Man’s music sounds like a melancholic mix of acoustic space rock with elements of surf music, as well as middle eastern guitar style. Yawning Man was responsible for influencing music in the desert and creating a sound which today is still trying to be duplicated.

Thee Merry Widows

Thee Merry Widows are Northern California’s original all female psychobilly band. Formed in 2003 by upright bassist Nikki Nightbreed and vocalist Miss Eva von Slut, the girls decided to explore their mutual love of horror/exploitation films, domination, and all things dark. Miss Eva also brings her background in burlesque into the live performances.
Added to the mix was drummer Andrea, who brings her own SciFi sensibility to the band. After a lineup change, the band is rounded out by veteran punk rthymn guitarist Mistress Mandy (formerly of Violet Discord) and punk rock sweetheart Nishone on lead guitar.
The SF Weekly recommends seeing “the psychobilly stylings of Thee Merry Widows (which features the notable presence of buxom blond burlesque queen Miss Eva von Slut),” and the band has been featured in such international fetish magazines as Skin Two and Marquis.
Zero Magazine says “Thee Merry Widows are turning heads around the Bay. An original all-female psychobilly band, these women rock like every night is a party and every show is a special occasion…..This ain’t your mama’s psychobilly… Thee Merry Widows don’t give a damn about their reputation; they just want to rock. If you’re into hot rods, classic pinups, rockin’ and simply having a blast, this five piece will be right up your alley.” (May 2004) and Scary from the Hellbillys calls Thee Merry Widows “(One of our) favorite local bands to play with “ (Zero Magazine, July 2004).
Thee Merry Widows have already opened for and toured with such psychobilly legends as Mad Sin, Nekromantix, the Hellbillys, Hayride to Hell, Chop Tops and the Phenomenauts.

The Hydromatics

The Hydromatics are made up of Detroit rocker Scott Morgan (The Rationals, Sonic's Rendezvous Band, Scots Pirates, Dodge Main), The Hellacopters' Nicke Royale, and two Dutch punks, Tony Slug (Loveslug, Nitwitz) and Theo Brouwer (Nitwitz, Big Paulus). They got together to record an album in February '99 in Amsterdam with studio wizard Evert Kaatee twiddling the knobs. The idea was to make a definitive hard rock album featuring Morgan's legendary voice. Both Slug and Royale are huge fans of Morgan's work with Sonic's Rendezvous Band in the '70s, and the had recorded two songs, "Heaven" "City Slang, " by the seminal Detroit/Ann Arbor band. When the Hellacopters made their U.S. debut in November '98 in New York City, Morgan joined the band for scorching encores of the above-mentioned songs. They also recorded a single, the ripping "Down Right Blue", produced by Daniel Rey with Morgan and Royale sharing the lead vocals, which has been released on Sub-Pop. When the Hellacopters returned to the U.S. in December, Morgan did some shows with them in the Mid-west adding more songs to their collective repertoire. Although they are from different generations and half a world apart geographically, Morgan and the Hellacopters fit together perfectly. Slug was in the loop in terms of getting Morgan and the Hellacopters together, and, always thinking, figured it would be great if he and his pal Nicke could get Morgan to record with them. Morgan jumped at the chance, as these guys understand his music and have a certain reverence for it. The plan was to give some of the old SRB tunes a proper studio recording as well as bringing in new songs. The results were impressive to say the least.
