Suicidal Tendencies

Judging from their name, Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on -- building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk -- before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. Early on, the group (whose original lineup included Muir, guitarist Grant Estes, bassist Louiche Mayorga, and drummer Amery Smith) found it increasingly difficult to book shows, due to rumors of its members' affiliation with local gangs and consistent violence at their performances. The underground buzz regarding Suicidal Tendencies grew too loud for labels to ignore though, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier; issuing Muir and company's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore album up to that point; its best-known track, "Institutionalized," was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV, and was eventually used in the Emilio Estevez cult classic movie Repo Man, as well as in an episode for the hit TV show Miami Vice (for which the group made a cameo appearance).

Muir formed a new version of Suicidal Tendencies in the late '90s (with Clark being the only other familiar face), resulting in such further studio releases as 1999's Freedumb and 2000's Free Your Soul and Save My Mind. Muir and Trujillo joined forces once more for a fourth Infectious Grooves studio release in 2000, Mas Borracho; while another Cyco Miko release surfaced, Schizophrenic Born Again Problem Child, along with a follow-up up to their earlier compilation, Friends & Family, Vol. 2. Now the band will be back with their brand new album for 2009.......

Trash Talk is an American hardcore punk band hailing from Sacramento, California, formed in 2005. Trash Talk combines modern hardcore and thrash with the aggression of its descendants, creating a sound that is at once exciting, unrelenting and entirely fresh.

The Inspector Cluzo

After 490 shows in 25 countries, and 50.000 records sold all over the world within 3 years, the funk'n'roll french duo The Inspector Cluzo will do his first 25 gigs US tour all around the country!

Three years ago, the former guitarist and drummer of the deadly funk band Wolfunkind decide to start a new project together. Their fucking bass player never shows up at the practice, so they said "fuck the bass player" and start the band as an original funk'n'roll duo, playing rock and groovy music... without a bass. Their old mate Angelo Moore from Fishbone found the first name of the band, "Pink Panther", but they were affraid of legal issues and prefer to be called The Inspector Cluzo, one of the most well-know french caracter in the world. Then came a first LP, "The Inspector Cluzo", recorded and mixed by Stephan Kraemer (Yann Tiersen...) in Belgium. They don't know yet that they will sell 20.000 copies of this album all around the world, touring everywhere in 2009 and playing at the most prestigious festivals (Fuji Rock in Japan, Pentaport in South Korea, Springscream in Taïwan, The Falls and Southbound in Australia, Azkena Festival in Spain, Eurockéeenes in France, Pohoda in Slovakia, Rock For People in Czech Rep...). For a lot of promoters , they're simply one of the best international live act of the year, doing crazy shows, smashing drums randomly and having some "tumades" (1) with some frustrated technicians.

Back in France, they record their second album in Malcom's kitchen (renamed Studio Kitchen), nothing has changed… and everything has changed. Recorded between a good bottle of wine and delicious duck breast by the band himself (and mixed again by Stephan Kraemer), this record is richer than everything they did before (like if they learned a lot of their travels all around the planet), including a beautiful handmade package which reminds us that The Inspector Cluzo is a really indie band. Actually, they do everything by themselves, management, label, booking... trough their own compagny Ter a Terre. Helped by their old mate Angelo Moore (who make a very special spoken word at the end of this album) and the horns of french band Ceux Qui Marchen Debout , the funkiest rock duo of the world (or is it the opposite?) has just delivered a great record, more successful than ever and more sticking to what they used to do on stage, powerful and exciting. This is rock. "Heart and Soul rock".
