The Fashion Slaves
We got together to play music, dress up, and have fun,” according to Emily Jayne and Eric Din, members of the Bay Area’s preeminent ska band, The Uptones. ”We had some songs that weren’t ska, and wanted to perform them live.” So Emily and Eric recruited Eric Knight, the former Engine 88 bass player and Pete D’Amato, drummer with The Agent Deadlies. The Fashion Slaves were created in 2011. Along with legendary Beserkley Records founder Matthew King Kaufman and Grammy winning producer/engineer, Michael Rosen, they have have teamed up to record a live CD titled “Check Out The Fashion Slaves,” on Fun Fun Fun Recordings. The recording includes originals like “Suffer For Fashion” and “Loud Mouth Girl” along with their version of The Uptones’ song “Going Down.”
“After playing solo for most of my career, it’s truly been amazing working with such great musicians. This new combo gives more juice to my original material, and frees me up to perform more on stage,” says Emily Jayne.
Often referred to as "SF's most adorable" urban folk rock band, Super Natural is a San Francisco-based foursome that serves up a unique and modern take on sixties folk, eighties punk and new wave, nineties indie rock and the timeless themes of love, hate, greed, justice, revolution and struggle. The rich but sometimes edgy guy/girl harmony driven lead vocals, traditional folk themes and melodies and simple punk power chords bring on comparisons ranging from X, Richard & Linda Thompson and Mates of State to Fairport Convention and Pavement.
Grit and Gold
Grit & Gold is an Alternative Country Rock band from Oakland, Ca.
