SYMPOSIUM One Day at a Time 1997

by request
 

Artist Biography by

The London group Symposium arrived on the tail end of the Brit-pop explosion, landing in that no-man's between Blur vs. Oasis and Radiohead's OK Computer with a reputation as a blistering live act and a distinctly non-Anglo variety of cheeky punk-pop. Unfortunately, the group's debut album, On the Outside, failed to capitalize on the early promise of the single "The Answer to Why I Hate You" or their reputation (spurred by the cover of Melody Maker) as the Best Live Band in Britain. Symposium, which consists of Ross Cummins (vocals), Hagop Tchaparian (guitar), Joe Birch (drums), William McGonagle (guitar), and Wojtek Godzisz (bass), formed at school in Kensington, West London, in the mid-'90s.

DOWN BY LAW Last of the Sharpshooters 1997

Artist Biography by


Blue
Following his departure from All after the group's first two albums under that name, vocalist/guitarist Dave Smalley (also formerly of Dag Nasty) put together Down By Law in 1991 with ex-Clawhammer guitarist Chris Bagarozzi and the former Chemical People rhythm section of Ed Urlik (bass) and Dave Nazworthy (drums). This lineup remained together only for Down By Law's debut album, 1992's Blue; when the follow-up, 1994's Punkrockacademyfightsong, appeared, Smalley had reconstituted the band with guitarist Sam Williams III (ex-Balance and Slap of Reality), bassist "Angry" John DiMambro (ex-Clay Idols and Leonards), and drummer Hunter Oswald. This lineup remained stable, save for the drum chair, which was occupied by Danny Westman on 1996's All Scratched Up! and Chris Lagerborg on 1997's Last of the Sharpshooters. In 1999, the group issued their fifth album for Epitaph, Fly the Flag. Split followed a year later. When Windwardtidesandwaywardsails dropped in 2003, original drummer Nazworthy was back in the fold.

THE CROWNHATE RUIN Until The Eagle Grins 1996







Discogs


Artist Biography by

A member of Washington, D.C.'s Dischord roster, the Crownhate Ruin formed in 1994 and lasted only until the end of 1996, but not before they were able to record and release an album, 1996's Until the Eagle Grins. Frederick Erskine was the bassist and vocalist, Joseph McRedmond was the guitarist and vocalist, and Vin Novara was the drummer. Both McRedmond and Erskine had previously spent time in the short-lived Hoover, another band that recorded for Dischord. Like many of their label mates, the Crownhate Ruin played an explosive brand of post-hardcore indie rock that relied on slashing guitars and screamed vocals. Erskine moved on to June of 44, just before Hoover briefly reunited for a release on Slowdime.

WOOB 1194 1994

 downtempo, chill, ambient


Artist Biography by

Woob is U.K.-based ambient-dub musician Paul Frankland, whose albums for Em:t Recordings are among the most praised and encompassing documents of post-rave ambient of the last several years. Incorporating Middle Eastern instrumentation and vocalese with Jamaican dub-style production, tight, snappy breakbeats, blankets of synth drone and melody, and heaps of treated samples and field recordings, Woob is a sort of state-of-the-art snapshot of heavily hybridized post-rave experimental ambient. Frankland first came to attention through his participation in a Future Music talent competition held at London's Wembley stadium, refereed by, among others, Mixmaster Morris (of Dreamfish and Irresistible Force fame). Frankland's entry in the seminar/competition -- a four-track demo tape -- was praised highly by Morris and subsequently passed to a number of British music journalists, eventuating Frankland's relationship with the Nottingham-based Em:t label. Frankland released his first album as Woob, 1194, through Em:t and has since contributed tracks to many of their compilations, as well as releasing a follow-up full-length, 4495. Stateside reissue of 1194 by the widely-distributed Instinct label has also given a boost to Woob's visibility, and Frankland's popularity is at or near that of his comparatively more prodigious contemporaries. In addition to his Woob work, Frankland also records (together with DJ Colin Waterton) as Journeyman for the Ntone label. The pair's work is similar to Frankland's own, although the Middle Eastern elements are largely replaced by less localizable, heavily treated and manipulated influences. [See Also: Journeyman
