Junk Monkeys

Artist Biography by 

Formed in the mid-'80s by singer/guitarist David Bierman, guitarist Dave Boutette, bassist Kevin Perri, and drummer Dan Allen, Dearborn, MI's Junk Monkeys evolved from a previous band named Mystery Girls (no, not those Mystery Girls), and cut their teeth in Detroit clubs before finding an unlikely home with L.A.-based Metal Blade Records. Unlikely because Junk Monkey albums like 1989's Soul Cakes, 1990s Five Star Fling, and 1992's Bliss featured hook-laden power pop/punk inspired by '70s legends like Cheap TrickBig Star, and the Flamin' Groovies; but not so far-fetched when one remembers Metal Blade had also signed the Goo Goo Dolls around the same time. In any case, just as the latter only managed to score mainstream success towards the end of their relationship with the label, the Junk Monkeys too failed to find an audience beyond Michigan and Midwestern borders during their tenure at Metal Blade, eventually departing to record a final live album in 1995's Follies Review before going their separate ways.

The Davenports

The Davenports are an American rock band. Formed in 2000 in Brooklyn, New York, the band is a project of Scott Klass and has issued four albums on Mother West records. The song “Five Steps” from the album Speaking of The Davenports is the theme song to the A&E television series Intervention.


After performing with Fountains of Wayne co-founder Chris Collingwood in the band “Smalltown Criers,[2]” Scott Klass formed The Davenports. In 2000 the band released their first album Speaking of The Davenports to positive reviews. Allmusic described the album as having “taken subtle college power pop to an infinitely pleasing level.[3]” MTV licensed music from the record for the shows “Undressed” and “The Sausage Factory.[4]
The band’s follow-up recording Hi-Tech Lowlife was released in 2005 again to positive reviews. Popmatters described the record as “subtle power pop at its most pleasant,[5]” while AllMusic critic Jason Damas cited the band as “[offering] some of the most lyrically and musically rich modern guitar-pop.[6]
In an April 2008 interview with The Deli Magazine, Klass described the band's next record as being about "this couple and a handful of particularly crappy situations that they don’t navigate so effectively."[7] The band issued a three song EP on December 16, 2008. The EP featured the single "Thinking About You, Maryann" as well as "Don't Cry Mary" from the upcoming album, and a remake of "Whore For the Holidays" which originally appeared on Hi-Tech Lowlife. On January 11, 2011, Why The Great Gallop? was released.
On June 1, 2018, the band announced a new album titled "Don't Be Mad at Me" to be released on July 13, 2018. Concurrent with that announcement was a release of the album's first single "Where Shall We Hang Elena."

To date they have recorded five albums, and had four singles in the UK Top 40Recording history[edit]

Cosmic Rough Riders signed a one album license deal with Poptones Records, the newly formed label of ex-Creation Records boss Alan McGee, who released the band's third album, Enjoy the Melodic Sunshine in November 2000, actually a compilation of songs from Panorama and Deliverance.
Single releases in 2001 earned them increasing numbers of fans in the press. Their single "Revolution (In the Summertime?)" was released and went into the UK Singles Chart, scoring them their first Top 40 hit[2] and debut on BBC Television's Top of the Pops. This was immediately followed into the chart by "The Pain Inside", giving them back-to-back Top 40 hit single success.[2]
By the end of 2001, the album Enjoy the Melodic Sunshine had achieved silver status (sales of 60,000) in the UK and it was named by Q magazine as one of the 50 best albums of the year.
In March 2002, founder member of Cosmic Rough Riders, Stephen Fleming added lead vocals to his duties when original singer, Daniel Wylie, left to pursue a solo career. The release in September 2002 of the rarities and b-sides album, Pure Escapism, was the closing of one chapter in the band's story.
June 2003 saw the release of "Because You". It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 34 - becoming the band's third successive Top 40 hit and their highest entry yet.[2]
The self-written and self-produced album, Too Close to See Far was released by Measured Records in July 2003. The entire album was play-listed by BBC Radio 2 and on its release, entered the UK's official independent chart at number 7. A second single from the album was released in September 2003, and "Justify the Rain" entered the UK Singles Chart, giving the band four Top 40 hits in a row.[2] 2003 ended with Cosmic Rough Riders being the recipients of the best newcomer award at the Tartan Clef Awards ceremony, an event that raised over £100,000 for the charity, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy. The band were presented with their award by Scotland's First MinisterJack McConnell.
During 2005 the band wrote and recorded a new album, The Stars Look Different from Down Here, in southern Spain. The album was released in May 2006.

Bill Withers D.E.P.

la vanguardia
El cantante estadounidense de soul Bill Withers, conocido especialmente por escribir canciones como Lean on MeAin’t No Sunshine Lovely Day, ha fallecido a los 81 años por complicaciones cardíacas, según ha informado su familia a través de un comunicado.
“Estamos devastados por la pérdida de nuestro amado y devoto esposo y padre. Un hombre solitario con un corazón impulsado por conectarse con el mundo en general, con su poesía y música. Hablaba honestamente con las personas y las conectaba entre sí. Una vida tan privada como la que vivía cerca de familiares y amigos íntimos. Su música siempre pertenecerá al mundo. En este momento difícil, rezamos para que su música ofrezca comodidad y entretenimiento mientras los fanáticos se aferran a sus seres queridos
Además de los citados, el artista escribió y grabó destacados éxitos del panorama musical, como Use Me y Just the Two of Us. Todo ello le llevó a entrar en el salón de la fama del Rock and Roll en 2015 y a ganar nada menos que tres Grammy.
Nacido en 1938, se enfrentó a una infancia complicada en Slab Fork, Virginia. Su tartamudeo no le ofreció facilidad alguna para hacer demasiados amigos. Además, a los 13 años, perdió su padre, por lo que su abuela lo acabó criando. Un amor que siempre llevó con él, hasta el punto de dedicarle en su álbum debut una canción: Grandma’s Hands.
Pasó nueve años en la marina de EE.UU., antes de deslumbrar con su carrera musical. Luego, pasó un tiempo trabajando haciendo inodoros y aprovechaba las noches para grabar demos, que enviaba a promotoras musicales. Finalmente, firmó con Sussex Records y contrató a Booker T Jones para producir Just As I Am.
