The Jackets
The Jackets
The Jackets are a dynamic Garage-Punk-Psych-Freakbeat trio based in Bern, Switzerland featuring front woman Jack Torera on guitar and lead voice, Chris Rosales on drums and Samuel 'Schmidi' Schmidiger on bass. The band formed in 2007 and have released three full length LP's - Stuck Inside (Subversiv Records 2009), Way Out (Soundflat Records 2012) and Shadows Of Sound (Voodoo Rhythm Records 2015). The Jackets released their first 7" vinyl single Be Myself/ Queen Of The Pill on Voodoo Rhythm Records in June of 2017.
The Jackets spend most of their time on the road recently touring the USA and Canada in the fall of 2017 and playing regularly in most every country in Western Europe including Scandinavia and the U.K where they are well known on the European Garage Rock circuit playing at some of the most well-known festivals in the genre such as Funtastic Dracula Carnival (Spain), Cosmic Trip Festival (France), Purple Weekend (Spain), Hipsville (UK) and Festival Beat (Italy) and have shared stages with bands like Baby Woodrose, The Monsters, Magnetix, King Kahn & BBQ, Lyres, Gonn and The Sonics.
The band is known for their high energy stage shows combining 60's Garage, Mod, '77 Punk, Psychedelia and their devotion to bands like The MC5, The Monks and The Music Machine. What is important to note is that the Jackets are a Rock and Roll band - but it's the ROLL that makes the ROCK just that little bit better!
The Schizophonics
The Schizophonics
The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom. When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go. They’ve built up a formidable reputation in their home base of San Diego and a fervent following among locals. Pat Beers is like a cross between Jimi Hendrix and James Brown – yelping, wailing, shralping the guitar with his left hand while gyrating all over the place; Lety keeps it real behind the kit.
The Loons
The Loons
In this click bait, flavor of the month, short attention span world, THE LOONS are an anomaly. Their records and live performances have commanded the attention of a devoted tribe of fans for twenty years and counting. In that time they’ve made four albums, a bunch of singles, and played gigs in more cities around the world than they can keep count of. They’ve collaborated with original ‘60s music icons like Glenn Ross Campbell of the Misunderstood, Dick Taylor of the Pretty Things, Randy Holden of the Sons of Adam and Blue Cheer, and Michael Stuart-Ware of Love. The Loons have grown and evolved but never compromised, remaining fiercely committed to the untamed spirit and creativity of ‘60s garage, freakbeat and psychedelia.
The Loons catalog is anthologized on an exclusive cassette compilation, Diamonds, Garbage & Gold: The Best of the Loons, released on Burger Records in November 2017. Their song As the Raven Flies can be heard in the recent movie Dances With Werewolves, directed by Donald Glut and Dan Golden. Their newest single, Blue Ether b/w Saturday’s Son will appear on Dirty Water Records UK in early 2018. The Loons will be touring in Spain, Italy and France in March and April of 2018.
