The New Mastersounds

In the late 1990’s, guitarist and producer Eddie Roberts was running a club night in Leeds called “The Cooker.” When The Cooker moved into a new venue with a second floor in 1999, there was space and the opportunity to put a live band together to complement the DJ sets. Simon Allen and Eddie had played together in 1997 as The Mastersounds, though with a different bassist and no organ. Through friends and the intimate nature of the Leeds music scene, Pete Shand and Bob Birch were added on bass and Hammond respectively, and The New Mastersounds were born. Though it was raw, and more of a boogaloo sound at first, it was powerful from the start. Their first rehearsal was hot enough for Blow it Hard Records to release on two limited-edition 7” singles in 2000.

Fast-forward 15 years and the recorded catalogue boasts 24 more 7” singles, 9 studio albums, 2 live albums, 1 remix album and 3 compilation albums, released variously in UK, USA and Japan, where they continue to tour extensively. Joe Tatton, another veteran of the Leeds scene, joined back in 2007, replacing Bob Birch on organ and piano.

Liebermonster

To balance the personalities and musical backgrounds of six very different guys, Liebermonster relies on a common understanding that musical experimentation is the core of creativity. This philosophy is evident in the band's broad spectrum of sound, giving listeners a taste of everything from Frank Zappian quirkiness to Middle Eastern slink. The daunting task of tying Liebermonster's dynamic sound together rests squarely on the shoulders of a rock-solid rhythm section with Jim Copeland on drums and Alex Albu on bass. Heading up the crew with an endless well of musical ideas is guitarist Shane Lieberman, accompanied by the reckless wailing of long-time bandmate Seth Garland on tenor saxophone. Rounding out Colorado's best horn duo is multi-instrumentalist Chris White on trombone, with talented Mississippi keyboard player Zach Leach completing the band's current lineup.
