Bio: Violent Femmes

Violent Femmes formed in 1981 as an acoustic punk band playing on the streets of Milwaukee. Their main influences at that time were Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps, and The Velvet Underground. Their goal was to rock harder than any other acoustic act on the planet.

They were rejected for an audition by a local nightclub and set up outside a Pretenders gig. Chrissie Hynde asked them to open that night’s show. This gave the early Femmes a publicity boost which led to them being invited to play in NYC supporting Richard Hell. A rave review in the New York Times led eventually to a record deal, which in turn spawned worldwide touring.

Their eponymous first album became the first and only album in Billboard history to enter the charts as a platinum album, eight years after its release. The Femmes became a mainstay of festivals, clubs and theatres in over 30 countries worldwide in the ensuing three decades.

MTV’s “Unplugged” show was inspired by the Femmes, although they never actually appeared on it. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective has been cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Nirvana, Lou Reed, John Cusack, Mark Morris, and Wim Wenders.

Bio: Echo & The Bunnymen

’80s new-wave legends Echo And The Bunnymen are still making grand, sweeping, dramatic anthems, and they’ve got an album full of them called Meteorites” Stereogum

April 22, 2014 Santa Monica, CA:  Legendary Liverpool band Echo & the Bunnymen are announcing their return to the U.S. for a tour in support of their 12th studio album and first since 2009, Meteorites.  The first leg of the tour begins August 1st in Los Angeles at the historic Orpheum Theatre.  Confirmed dates listed below.  Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 25th.  Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), Meteorites contains ten hand-picked new songs written by founder Ian McCulloch and performed by Bunnymen stalwarts Mc Culloch and Will Sergeant along with Gordy Goudie (guitar) and Stephen Brannan (bass).  The Bunnymen are releasing two singles—“Holy Moses” in the U.S. and “Lovers on the Run” in the UK.  Described by Ian McCulloch as the worthy successor to Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain, Meteorites will be release in the UK on May 26th and the U.S. on June 3rd.

Formed in 1978, the Bunnymen have been a vital force in the indie rock world for over 36 years having won over millions of obsessive music fans worldwide and indelibly influenced countless bands with their signature sound—from the Flaming Lips to Coldplay to Pavement. Meteorites is a key addition to their repertoire. It’s an intimate song cycle written by Ian McCulloch performed by the band with a renewed sense of purpose showcasing all of their unmistakable musical hallmarks while taking them to a new level.

Says McCulloch: “For me, this is a whole new approach. It’s more edgy than anything I’ve ever done.  I’m dealing with something on this record I didn’t want to deal with for a long time.”
