 MB Welcomes Love Meets Lust
Back in the late seventies the integrated circuit found its way into the music biz and begat synthesizers which brought a "new wave" of music to flush out the tried and tired. At the same time, the long hair and blue-jeans of the 70's gave way to spiky clipper-cuts, shiny Rayon shirts, skinny ties, big-block "Frankie says..." t-shirts and day-glo pink, green and yellow stretchies of the 80's - which were perfect for rock fans who wanted to dance again. It was a weird time for  music and fashion, eventually giving way to a backlash of Grunge and guitars in the 90's.  But in pop culture everything old is new again and New Wave is no exception.  Which brings me to our latest band link submission in the newly created Synth Pop / New Wave category; the music of Love Meets Lust  perfectly recaptures the vibe of 1980's New Wave.  If you dig the selections of XM's "Fred" station (44) you're going to dig Love Meets Lust.  But better than satellite radio, you can go see Love Meets Lust live and local at The Bellmont in Hamtramck on Sunday, March 16th with Malbec from Los Angeles, CA.

 Dendura Joins Unexpect and Shadowside at the Flight of the Valkyries Festival
faith148 writes Dendura (USA), the Egyptian-inspired, female-fronted progressive band with belly dancers, will join co-headliners Unexpect (Canada) and Shadowside (Brazil) for the second-annual Flight of the Valkyries festival at Station 4 in St. Paul, MN, on Saturday June 28. Flight of the Valkyries is the only festival in the USA to feature a complete lineup of female-fronted metal bands. 
 
“I'm really pumped about the festival,” says Dendura drummer Justin Lee Dixon. “Exposing your sound and style to a whole new group of people is always exciting and, being that all the bands are female fronted, we are all happy to be a part of an event that is bringing together this ever-growing genre of music. But what I anticipate the most is sharing the stage with many talented musicians.”
 
Belly dancer Abida Blaze, who is known for her exotic, mysterious moves, will join Dendura onstage at the festival.

 NuRokSol To Perform @ Bodog Battle Regional Finals in Atl.
On Monday, March 10, 2008, NUROKSOL will be competing at Center Stage in Atlanta, GA with 11 other bands in the regional finals for the second season of reality TV show The Bodog Battle and for a million dollar recording contract with BoDog Entertainment (Wu Tang Clan, DMX, Fall From Grace).  The 10-part series began last year with over 7000 bands competing online, 350 live battles nationwide and finally 10 bands ending up in the first season which aired both on Fuse TV and BodogTV online.  Johnn "Rotten"  Lydon of the Sex Pistols was one of the judges.
Lucky for us, NUROKSOL bassist GT (Flint/Detroit) has written down what the experience has been like so far, beginning with the local competition which took place at The Shelter several months ago, including the prophetic words of "Papa Smurf" and his magic beads and on to the House of Blues in Cleveland.

  U.K. POPSTARS- THE BUCK BROTHERS- DEBUT DETROIT SHOW
Static PresentsThe Buck Brothers-the U.K.s latest rock exports will play a special Detroit show on Wednesday, March 19 @ The Lager House as part of their first proper U.S. tour and appearance at the SXSW music festival.  
The spirited trio has been making a name for themselves this past year in Europe and North America with their infectious brand of pop-punk rock n’ roll music that has found fans in the likes of Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame and infamous KROQ DJ Rodney Bigenheimer. To promote their debut album “me,” The Buck Brothers set out to break the world record entry for “the highest number of gigs performed in 12 hours.”  Click "read more" below.

 Michiganbands.com Welcomes Shred Of Hope
shred of hopeIf there's one thing we all cling to in troubled times it's a Shred Of Hope, which is the name of our latest band-link submission to the Original artists / Hard Rock category.  The band hails from Dearborn, Mi, home of The Ford Motor Company - which is also clinging to a shred of hope after last quarter's reported $2.8 billion loss. And like FoMoCo's Wixom Plant, Shred Of Hope relates to As I Lay Dying and All That Remains.  But unlike the creators of the crappy power window system that completely failed in three of the four doors of my 2000 Focus sedan (assembled in Mexico, btw), the band claims quality music by Metallica, Black Sabbath, Pantera and Megadeth as major influences.  Shred of Hope currently has three songs available on MySpace.com and claims 1999 "friends" to date.  The MySpace page for FordMotorCompany only has "Tom" as a friend and  has reportedly grown old and moved to Huntington Beach, CA.  Don't believe me?  Check out all the appropriate links by clicking "read more" below.

 Flipping The Pig New Free Album: My Heroic Cadences
fthep writes Oddly normal?  Normally odd?  Though stylistically pulling from many different sources (pop, new wave, folk, jazz, electronic, rock, showtunes, etc.), there's a lyrical and emotional cohesiveness that prevails on the mood of one-man-band Flipping The Pig's melodic new album My Heroic Cadences.  The new record retains the chaotic spirit of past releases, but this time with no electric guitars and no bass. It wasn't a conscious decision; they simply weren't plugged in. The album was written, recorded, and released in February, on the heels of last November's You Get The Idea. Its 10 tracks exhibit a personal late night feel: overtones of discomfort, guilt, and paranoia; undertones of hope, humor, and the coolness of paying ten bucks for Eddie Deezen's autograph.  There's the throaty choir and wavering vocals on 'The Ripple', the moody solo piano of 'The Conversationalist', the groggy 'Periphery', the mid-tempo new wave pop of 'Let A Moment Pass', the acoustic slightly unsettling tone of the aptly-titled 'The Creeper,' as well as 'Preset' -- his very first drug-addled dance song (he channeled his inner Bronski Beat and he's very proud).
