I list these musicians here because they are good and because I've had contact with them in some degree. If a musician has the "rock star" attitude that they don't have the time to answer my email, then I don't have the time to add a link to their website, I don't have the time to go to a store to spend my hard earned cash for their CDs, and I don't have the time to go to their concerts and spend/waste more of my money. With the advent of MP3 swapping, the tables have turned on the record companies and "artistes"; they have got to kiss their fans' behinds or else: the public will not buy their music, people will swap their music for free instead of buying it, and/or the public will consciously and conspicuously ignore them. The public will not tolerate arrogant rock stars anymore. Any sign of hubris from rock stars will cause their most ardent fans to abandon them in an instant.

"Bands" are something that the fans believe in to make "real." In "bands", you'll usually see one or two guys who write all the songs, and the other members are "hacks". The "hacks" are expendable. In "bands" you'll see the songwriters as being close friends while at odds with the rest of the members. Whoever gets the songwriting credit gets the publishing money, the non-songwriter members are sidemen and therefore expendable. "Bands" usually break up when the sidemen realize that they're working just as hard as the songwriters to make the band successful, but are getting paid a fraction of the profits because they are just expendable sidemen. "Bands" go through personnel changes when the expendable sidemen get too frustrated with the songwriters who will not allow them to record any of their songs on the "band's" albums. "Bands" disolve when the expendable sidemen realize that they're being shut out of the "band's" gravy train while at their commercial peak. No, unfortunately "bands" aren't the fraternities nor brotherhoods of friendships that everyone thinks they are, they're ephemeral businesses whose members often distrust and dislike each other. Even the most famous rock band of all time, The Beatles, had members who hated each other at times and didn't speak to each other during their last year as a "band" and didn't speak to each other for a few years after they broke up. It's the music business not the music friendship.

So enjoy music, enjoy rock concerts, enjoy the experiences of listening to music, but don't give yourself delusions about artists and imagine them to be any more than what they are. They're people just like everybody else.

Khruangbin is a three-piece band from Texas, formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums. Taking influence from 1960's Thai funk - their name literally translates to "Engine Fly" in Thai - Khruangbin is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool.

Are a young LA band with an album on Epic/Sony Records. They are talented young musicians who are children of Hollywood show biz families; they are, as somebody else described them, "rich kids from the LA private school/snob circut ... except Darren ..." A few of them are professional actors and fashion models; their former drummer is a very talented fine actor. Their fanbase consists mostly of young teen and twentysomething girls, and not much outside of that demographic. They have great live shows, but their albums are lackluster, "toothless" is one way a critic described them. They're likeable friendly people, but they are in the Hollywood trust-fund studio-brat crowd, you know what I'm saying. This band seems to have turned from a real band into a boyband in exactly the opposite way "O-Town" turned from a boyband into a almost-real-band, but the result and their fanbase is the same. When this band-thing plays out or their fanbase grows up and moves onto the next boyband-with-guitars-of-the-month, the actors will probably move onto great fame and success. The other band members who aren't actors fail to distinguish themselves and will probably move onto something else. Darren should be allowed to solo more. I recommend seeing this band live because that's when they're great, as for their CDs, well, you listen to them a couple of times and you don't feel compelled to listen to them again. Their fanclub president Suzanne is kind of odd.
You can contact them individually: Alex, Darren, Jacques, Sam Jeff Conrad
Update 8/03: Just as I predicted, their famous actor drummer Jason Schwartzman has left the band in the middle of their recording their next album. As soon as a good script with a big budget and big budget paycheck came along, he ditched them. They have lost their celebrity followings that used to hang out with them backstage.
Update 11/03: Just as I predicted, exactly as I have been advising them, they started their own label to sell recordings of their live shows: Phantom Planet Bootlegs
Update 2009: Just as I predicted, they broke up when the actors' careers started gaining momentum.
Update 2020: Just as I predicted, their acting careers stalled so now they've reunited and are touring again.

they are oh-KRS (Records) !!! listen for yourself. This was probably one of the most important rock bands of the 90's. Janet Weiss, drummer, is also a member of the band Quasi. Sleater-Kinney

has anybody seen her live?

Trance to the Sun, Tess Records
has the hottest demo floating around, they sound like Joy Division/Ambient House/Medicine/Mazzy Star type rock I've been scouring record stores everywhere trying to find copies of their latest. I might soon locate a store that carries their demo/album. A major should sign these guys, they're really good. A few have told me they're on Tess Records. If I was an A&R exec, I'd sign 'em. Well, they're not on Tess anymore and are looking for a deal. If you'd like to get a hold of them - call Tess anyway and ask for Matt and he'll tell you how to find Elan (TTTS). The Tess phone # is (805)568-1601. Their CD on Tess Records is available, among other places, in the Darkwave/Projekt catalog (where my Eleven Shadows release is also carried stateside). Call Darkwave at 1-800-CD-LASER Trance to the Sun, Projekt Records Trance to the Sun, Tess Records Trance to the Sun,

they have a great albums that for unknown reasons, MUTE Records doesn't seem to be promoting. Somebody kick MUTE's butt to get them to start properly promoting this great band.

Melody del Mundo
alternative rock singer from the Philippines, kind of an odd personality though, takes offense at everything. She is a kind of "has been" in the Philippines and an "almost was been" in America. Amazingly talented, but her personality alienated her fans. I used to wonder why amazingly talented people who seemingly have everything going for them, looks, talent, stage charisma, good material, etc., don't make it in the music industry, until I met a few like her.

Allen Kelinsky
Allen Kelinsky
Los Angeles, CA based jazz guitarist; a truly remarkable talent, I really don't understand why musicians as talented as he don't try to promote their shows more aggressively, try to sell their CDs more aggressively, and try to gig with other musicians. There are many people who wished they had the talent such musicians have, and some of these musicians just don't do anything. He works as a lawyer now.
