A LITTLE DIDDY ABOUT THE BANDS:

BIG JOHN BATES
http://www.bigjohnbates.com/

Big John Bates takes the feel of blues-based roots rockabilly and fuel-injects it with his vision of rock'n'roll; adding his big Gretsch sound to his pulp-fiction style lyrics. The talented sCare-oline brings her upright bass, her harmony vocals, and her passion for the sounds of the American-gothic. With the addition of Krupa-influenced drummer StageCoach, this world-class trio extensively tours North America & Europe - adding the wild world of burlesque to their live show by choreographing numbers with the Voodoo Dollz!

He walloped you with a raw-throated howl overtop of driving guitars one minute then hit you with a heartfelt acoustic ballad the next. His expressive, insightful lyrics took you to a place you'd been before - while the infectious melodies let you know you'd be back. Ears ringing with the sound of a powerful, gritty twang you don't know whether to laugh, cry or yell at the top of your lungs. You've found yourself in the middle of a sonic funhouse that is Rich Hope, the band and the man.

So far, two major labels have backed out because of Midnite's refusal to clean up his lyrics for radio airplay...nevertheless recording is ongoing for the new album and a C.D. single is set to be released to radio in the very near future......

From the Bestiary to the Leathering Room, the newest LP from Big John Bates is the heart of the band’s dramatic post-punk performances and the thick white vinyl is covered with the intoxicating art of Santiago Caruso. Their “rustic tapestry of bowed bass, guitars and thumping percussion” now embraces the addition of Requiemily’s post-ro... more info

Rich Hope

Blazing rock 'n' roll, rootsy twang, and straight from the heart laments mix and mingle to state that all is well in the kingdom of good honest rock music. more info

12 MIDNITE (LOW BROW ARTIST)

Since screeching into the public consciousness in the 80's as Canada's best known political Graffitti / Pop Artist, 12 Midnite has continued to dwell in the shadows between the fine art elite and the low brow rabble... moving with equal ease between the gallery and the garage. more info
