Gaelic Storm steps back into the ring with the dazzling #1 Billboard World Album Chicken Boxer, a heavyweight record that comes out swinging with a mix of empowering anthems and traditional ballads. With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had three albums debut at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, 2008’s What’s the Rumpus?, 2010’s Cabbage, which remained parked in the top slot for three consecutive weeks, and 2012’s Chicken Boxer.

Chicken Boxer is the fifth album to be released on the band’s own label, Lost Again Records, and showcases the incomparable songwriting and accomplished musicianship of a band that has made their mark bringing fans to their feet two hundred days per year.

The group’s ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal. In recent years, they’ve performed on the same bill with acts ranging from Zac Brown Band and the Goo Goo Dolls to Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett, at events as varied as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Milwaukee’s Summerfest.

With their signature acoustic production, Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition to serve up a ringside seat for fifteen rounds of pugilistic poultry pounding sound. In other words, Chicken Boxer will knock you out.

The Tubes will go down in the rock history books as one of the most exciting, in-your-face tight-knit group of musicians who epitomised the hilarity of popular American culture by making it into a the ultimate rock’n’roll extravaganza. Their live shows involved mock bondage rituals, simulated sex, 12-foot high rock stars by the name of Quay Lude singing ‘White Punks On Dope’, exploding televisions, chainsaws and an array of semi-clad dancers. Some say they were about 15 years ahead of Madonna, and light years ahead of the politically correct.

From 1972-1975 the band toured continuously before A&M Records signed them to a major recording contract. Prior to the signing, the band earned devoted cult following on the strength of Spooner’s parodic songs and the group's surreal live show extravaganzas which verged on uncensored burlesque that took in everything from rock, pop, heavy metal, country and disco. Word of mouth about the electrifying live experience of the concerts travelled fast, and soon the Tubes earned the reputation as the must-see rock’n’roll band of all time.

By 1981 the Tubes signed to Capitol Records and released the David Foster produced ‘Completion Backwards Principle’; an album based on an actual sales training instruction manual. Both ‘Talk to Ya Later’ and ‘Don't Want to Wait Anymore’ finally earned them significant airplay on American radio, while the album became the Tubes' first Top 40 chart entry. Two years later, in 1983, due to a provocative video, the single ‘She's a Beauty’ reached the Top Ten, and pushed the Tubes’ sixth studio album, ‘Outside/Inside’ into the U.S. Top 20.

At their best, The Tubes has the uncanny ability to highlight the absurdity of everyday American life, occasionally shocking audiences along the way, but more importantly, always making them think twice. Perceived by fans and media alike as the ‘Marshall McLuhans of rock’n’roll’, the Tubes became both the medium and the message, stimulating the senses through their dynamic, controversial and politically incorrect audio visual live spectacles. The Tubes have always managed to expose, enlighten and entertain audiences worldwide by combining art with trash, comedy with tragedy, and innovative rock theatre with consummate musicianship.

Music: The Other Bones Premiere "Damage"

the other bones maine

04/14/14 -

Buy The Other Bones' latest album. Bands sound different in Maine.

Portland, specifically, has been collecting New England's slightly off-centered musicians. A mini-metropolis surrounded by wilderness, the city incubates a music scene informed by the proximity of the (modest) urban to the (extreme) rural.

The Other Bones is a female-fronted electronic pop/R&B trio formed in 2011. Blending powerful vocals with cutting guitars and smooth electronic elements, they create a sound described by one reviewer as "their particular stamp of retro-futurist complexity.”

The band began in a Somerville, Massachusetts apartment where vocalist Loretta Allen and producer/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Mead spent weekends recording demos. "It was all over the place," says Allen, who met Mead on a camping trip before their freshman year at Tufts University. "We recorded a full country version of a Killers song one night and spent the next night making tape loops... Unfocused, yeah, but formative." Following graduation, Mead moved to his home state of Maine and rented a practice space behind a local train station. Allen followed a year later.

As Mead notes, "We started from scratch. I had an MPC 1000 with two dead pads and a Moog Soft Synth on my iPad. Loretta had a microphone and a guitar loop pedal we 'inherited' from a friend. We were playing into a 50-watt PA my high school band had used. It was unpolished and invigorating."

After several weeks of writing and playing, the pair connected with Eric Bruce, who had grown up playing guitar and touring nationally with bands in New Jersey's rock 'n' roll scene. "We were playing the track that would become 'Feels Like Home' and Eric immediately started playing his chorus hook. It shouldn't have worked, but something clicked. We knew we'd have to start dealing with not knowing what to say when people asked what kind of music we play," says Allen.

In 2012, the band released their debut EP, "Hinges": a collection of electro-inspired pop tracks that told the story of the year Allen spent in Boston before joining Mead in Maine. The record peaked at #8 on the iTunes Top 10 Electronic Chart and led to a series of shows along the east coast.

"After 'Hinges,' we learned how to be a live band," says Bruce. "That record captured our creative momentum, and the next year was about slowing down and figuring out how to put on a seamless show and communicate effectively as musicians and as individuals."

Having won the Portland Phoenix Music Awards of "Best New Artist" and "Best Pop/Rock Act", and recently nominated "Best in Maine" for the New England Music Awards, the band is now deep into writing and recording their first full length record. As Mead comments, "The music is in some ways simplified and in others more fully-realized. It's our profession of love to R&B from the electronic world."

At “Jamalot Ever After,” concertgoers can expect an evening of the same high-level of musical excellence which, on recent tours, garnered raves from fans and critics alike:

"Everyone gathered Friday evening was a believer — and they were treated to something close to rapture." - The Los Angeles Times

“(Steely Dan is) a latter-day jazz big band tweaking a cherished repertory… freed from studio permanence, reveling in the road.” - The New York Times

“The songs are the thing, and what songs they are (Steely Dan) dipped into pretty much every facet of their vast and rich repertoire, serving up an 18-tune set distinguished by its muscularity, finesse and chopsmanship.” - The Globe & Mail

"This was different. This was live. This was vibrant. This was a cascade of color carried along by Fagen, Becker, eight brilliant supporting musicians and three superb backing vocalists." - The Chicago Sun-Times

Onstage, Donald and Walter will be joined by those same eight “brilliant” supporting musicians: Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass, Jim Beard on keyboards, Jon Herington on guitar, Michael Leonhart on trumpet and keys, Jim Pugh on trombone, Roger Rosenberg on baritone saxophone and Walt Weiskopf on saxophone, along with three “superb,” soulful songbirds: La Tanya Hall, Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery and Cindy Mizelle. Together, they will treat audiences to selections from The Dan's extraordinary four-decade catalog, rich with infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves, and sleek, subversive lyrics, punctuated by blazing solo work and rich ensembles.

**See Press Release in Download Folder for Full List of Dates**

Steely Dan has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and helped define the soundtrack of the '70s with hits such as “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Rikki Don't Lose That Number,” “F.M.,” “Peg,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Deacon Blues,” and “Babylon Sisters,” culled from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980 (including 1977's groundbreaking Aja). They reunited in the early '90s, launching a string of sold-out tours. In 2000 they released multi-Grammy winner (including “Album Of The Year”) Two Against Nature, and released its acclaimed follow-up Everything Must Go in 2003. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
