OPPOSITION Blue Alice Blue 1990

by request

Artist Biography by


Breaking the Silence
The Opposition were a South London-based post-punk band that welded the impassioned urgency of early Killing Joke to the graceful but pained atmospheric flourishes of the Chameleons. Marcus Bell, Mark Long, and Ralph Hall formed the band in 1979 and had their first single, Very Little Glory, released through their own Double Vision imprint by the end of that year. A short-lived deal with the Ariola label (Japan) produced a second single in 1980 that led to a contract with Disc AZ. Breaking the Silence, the band's self-produced debut full-length, was released in 1981. Three LPs for Charisma -- Intimacy, Promises, and Empire Days -- followed in close succession between 1983 and 1985. A lengthy hiatus for the group ensued after that, and Long and Bell splintered off to record slick pop as So, a side project of sorts that spawned a minor hit in 1988 with "Are You Sure." The Opposition resumed for 1990s Blue Alice Blue and 1993's War Begins at Home prior to breaking up. The Netherlands-based Red Sun label issued Breaking the Silence on CD in 2001 with boosted sound and bonus tracks. The group also convened for a third time and released a new album in 2002.

THE DEADLY SNAKES Love Undone 1999

by request
 
 

Artist Biography by

The Deadly Snakes are a rock & roll band. Formed by a group of Toronto friends, the Snakes quickly gained local attention for their recklessly fun live shows. André St. Clair (vocals, guitar), Max Danger (organ, piano), Matt "Dog" Carlson (trumpet, harmonica), Yuri Didrichsons (bass), Andrew Gunn (drums), and Carson Binks (saxophone) first began playing together in 1996. Their adrenaline-charged '60s Southern soul remained authentic enough to escape pretensions and build a small following. After playing a concert in Memphis, they appropriately harnessed Greg Oblivian to produce their debut LP. By the time the Snakes had started recording, James Sayce had replaced Didrichsons on bass duties. Released on Sympathy for the Record Industry in May of 1999, Love Undone was well-received and the supporting tour improved the band's reputation. When it came time for the Snakes to record their follow-up, album Didrichsons had reclaimed the bass position, Jeremi Madsen had replaced Binks on saxophone, and Oblivian joined as an official member. I'm Not Your Soldier Anymore was released on In the Red in August of 2001.

LOTUS CROWN Chokin' on the Jokes 1997

Thanks to Scott


Artist Biography by

Named for an ancient Chinese fable, the orchestral hip-hop band Lotus Crown was the vehicle of singer/guitarist Jimi Shields, a onetime member of the Irish noise-pop outfit Rollerskate Skinny. After exiting the group's ranks following their 1994 EP Threshold, Shields relocated from Dublin to Chicago, stopping briefly to play drums for his brother Kevin's band My Bloody Valentine. After settling in the U.S., he recruited guitarist Paul Dillon, bassist Lennie Dietsch and drummer Zack Kantor, and Lotus Crown soon hit the road in support of the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev before recording their debut EP Alvar Aalto (titled in tribute to the Finnish architect) in late 1995. After entering the studio with producer Dave Fridmann, the quartet emerged with the full-length Chokin' on the Jokes in the spring of 1997.

Rare ska

Artist Biography by

Spring Heeled Jack was founded in Connecticut in 1991 by guitarist Ron Ragona and drummer Dave Karich. When the group released their Moon Records debut album, Static World View, in 1996, members included Tyler Jones on trumpet, Chris Rhodes on trombone, Rick Omonte on bass, and second guitarist Mike Pellegrino (both Pelligrino and Ragona split vocal and guitar playing). The band slowly etched its way into the ska underground through constant touring. In 1998, the group, now a septet with the addition of saxophonist Pete Wasilewski, released their sophomore CD, Songs From Suburbia, on Tommy Boy Records. Once again, the group followed it up with extensive national touring that eventually landed them a spot on the 1999 installment of the Warped Tour. Early in 2000 ,drummer Dave Karich decided to call it quits and the band went on permanent hiatus.
