Screaming Trees were a grunge band formed in Ellensburg, Washington in 1985. Their sound was a mix of 60’s psychedelia and punk rock, and even though they were critically acclaimed by many, they never achieved the superstardom of their peers. Following the Dust tour, Screaming Trees took another hiatus. After a June 25th 2000 concert to celebrate the opening Seattle’s Experience Music Project, the group unsurprisingly announced their official breakup. One of their earliest performances was in Ellensburg where they opened for future superstars Soundgarden and Faith No More.

A subtly biting guitar sound, simple, road-worn lyricism and consistently sharp musicianship transform their tracks into instantly memorable pop gems you don’t want out of your head.

Thin White Rope was an American rock band fronted by Guy Kyser that critics have associated with the No Depression, desert rock, psychocountry, and paisley underground movements. While certain of the band’s aeasthetic aspects do bear slight resemblance to these movements, Thin White Rope has been notoriously difficult to pigeonhole. This difficulty, strictly speaking, derives mainly from the fact that Thin White Rope’s overall sound also includes elements of psychedelic metal, country punk, bluegrass, and prog.

Inspired by the gig, he took up guitar after his father gave him an acoustic a few days later. Not being able to make enough noise with it, he traded it in immediately for a Gibson electric.

De BLACK LIPS noemen zichzelf een 'flower punk' band. De Black Lips hebben een legendarische live-reputatie opgebouwd waar zotte taferelen als braken, plassen, naakt, gekus tussen bandleden, vuurwerk, en het meenemen van een kip reeds de revue passeerden. Ondertussen kunnen ze rekenen op een sterke fanbase die hun energie en stijl (mishmash van blues, rock, doo-wop, country, en punk) enorm weet te appreciëren.

GIANLUCA GRIGNANI is an italian artist and singer-songwriter, well-known in Europe for his excellent lyrics and soft rock. His most famous song: “La Mia Storia Tra Le Dita" was recorded in Spanish with an awesome translation where poetry seems to be meant to find the perfect match, whose title: “Mi Historia Entre Tus Dedos” has been sang all along the Americas. His voice has a similar pitch to Franco de Vita, that’s the reason why people get both artists mixed-up.
