Featured Artist interview: Angel Rock (E63)

About: AngelRock

"I started out playing in an all girls band in Christchurch New Zealand in 1981. The band was called 25cents. Only 1 45"Vinyl was made, of 300 copies. One of these sold on TradeMe a couple of years ago for $6oo. Unbelieveable,there are some serious collectors out there!.I was the only one in the group who could write songs, but the least talented in playing the guitar, but because I could write, they let me in on the recording, as they needed an original song for side a. So my first song ever written was:Don't Deceive Me, side a on that 45". It was marketed by Flying Nun. I have reproduced this as an instrumental on my new This Time Album. I will put that up this week on R& R. I became a recluse for 27 years due to illness but continued to write and 27 years later I started recording again in Christchurch for a Tribute Album to the Music of that era (1981).Please see posters in my Photo Album regarding this. I came up with the idea of a 1981 (30thAnniversary)reunion night and Lis from The Sliders put the word out, and bands/muso's arrived from all over NZ and we played the night out at The Wunder Bar,Lyttleton,Christchurch, 2 weeks before the big earthquake(6th Feb 2011).Now phantom Billstickers are sponsoring marketing the album around the country, for our Reunion CD and My 1981 Tribute Album is going up along side it.We are giving 50% of proceeds from any sales to the Earthquake Relief Fund. I havent sorted out distribution yet, but Im waiting on advice. Any advice welcome!The Albums are being remastered at Nightshift Studio,Christchurch, as I speak. I would love to be signed up again under a reputable record Label."

1). What musical instrument is the wildest/most fun to play on (from your point of view)?
My fav is the guitar due to the effects that are available

1). What musical instrument is the wildest/most fun to play on (from your point of view)?
In our opinion we think that the most wildest/fun instrument to play is the saxophone that instrument has the power and ability to move get the attention of someone no matter what. The saxophone is one of the instruments we think is the hardest but once you get it and when you play it it sounds so good. We dont play the saxophone to be honest but we just admire any person that has the ability to play it.

In our music we try not to stay within limits of any style, always experimenting and following our hearts, so here you can find guitar usual for blues-rock and metal, noble grand piano, bold sound of accordion and snappy rhythm with bass and drums. All this is spiced with three different vocals, irony in lyrics and light shade of decadence cabaret madness that is always ready for something new and for switching from blues to fun."

Kite: I think that I was born exactly when and where it was needed.

Featured Artist inteview: Hannu Lepisto (E62)

About: Hannu Lepisto from Helsinki

"Hannu wrote songs about his journey from divorce to his addictions, to his knocks on heaven’s door and finding new love in his life. Then he decided to let go of the band. It was time to fulfill his biggest dream and go solo.
So he started working in the studio with his ever-loyal companion Petteri Mård, recording acoustic based tracks and soundscapes. Later in 2009 he signed to a newly formed Helsinki based family label Homeward Records Oy.
For the drums, percussion and bass Hannu wanted the best and got the best. The legendary Michael Blair (Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello) came back on board, as well as Ulf Rockis Ivarsson (Thåström, Nicolai Dunger). They jumped on the wagon as rhythm section and producers for this new batch of personal and emotionally direct songs.
The Helsinki-Stockholm-New York connection strengthened already when Ollie Olson took a mixing engineer’s hard job. The process of these two years of making Hannu’s debut has been pure delight in it’s ups and downs and heavens and hells.
And as a climax Howie Weinberg has mastered the tracks at the legendary Masterdisk, N.Y.C., U.S.A. (with Matthew Agoglia).
Hannu's dream has come true."


1). If you had to choose, in what country and at what time would you want to live?
I like living here in Finland at this time we have, with all of its threat. Safe and clean place. All the Western European countries and North-American countries; U.S.A. & Canada would be all right.
Though it would be great to have timetravel to Palestine & Israel area to see the time Jesus gathered masses and to hear his speeches and to follow and see his actions / acts.

Featured Artist interview: REJECT (E59)

About: REJECT 

"Reject exists since summer 2007. At this time the bandmembers where Stefan (lead-guitar) and Benjamin (vocals). They started to search musicians who want to play with them. First they found Jürgen (drums) who was playing in two Metal-Bands before. Then they where searching for a bass-player, but they didn't find one for a long time. So they decided to get a rythm-guitar-player, before they go on with searching a bass-player. So they found Simon (rythm-guitar). Finally they also found a bass-player. His name is Christopher (bass) and he was playing with Jürgen in the two Metal-Bands before.

The musical style of Reject developed since the time when Benjamin and Stefan where founding the Band. First they where on a Rock n' Roll style. By working with those Metal-Guys they developed their style to a Hardrock-Metal combination which is not easy to define. They keep on working and developing their sound since summer 2008 and they enjoy working with music very much.
They recorded a Demo in summer 2009. At the time they are recording their first Studio-Album and they hope you will be able to here it very soon."

Stay Tuned."




1). If you had to choose, in what country and at what time would you want to live?
I think we would all like to stay in the current place and current time because we are still young, in our early 20's, so we haven't really gotten the taste of life :)
