Bang (Album Release)
In the summer of 1971, BANG, a trio from the Philadelphia area, decided to take a road trip to Florida to try their fortune. While buying some rolling papers in the Sunshine State, they learned about a Small Faces and Deep Purple concert nearby in Orlando. They showed up at the venue and brazenly declared they were ready to go on stage. The concert organizer asked them to set up and play for him. After a couple songs, he told them they were opening for Rod Stewart and Faces. Before they knew it, BANG was playing with Bachman Turner Overdrive, Deep Purple, Three Dog Night, Fleetwood Mac, Ike and Tina Turner, The Doobie Brothers, and even Black Sabbath. Capitol Records signed them, and three LPs were released. Join Frank Ferrara, Tony Diorio, and Frankie Gilcken, as they recall their rapid rise to fame, playing with numerous Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
Heavy metal from Philadelphia, PA.
Since September 2009, Deuteronomy has held the line up of its founding members, guitarist/vocalist Max Aronow and drummer Topher Farmer. Deuteronomy has continued with many different line ups over the years (bass players, what can you do about 'em?) The line up of Topher and Max with other brief-tenured secondary members appeared on the early releases. The lineup was solidified with vocalist/bassist Julian Scanlan, now known as Slushii. The debut album, The Propaganda of Deuteronomy was recorded and released.
In around 2012, Topher decided to hang up his rock 'n' roll pants, and Dmitriy Prokopovich was recruited. Shortly thereafter, Keith A. Steinberg joined, insuring that the low-end would always be held down on bass after Julian's departure to pursue EDM (worked out for him nicely). The trio were playing together and recording various demos before finally recording 2014's COSMONAUT LP, spawning the fan favorite, "Especially Mad For You". Berklee School of Music student Nicholas Alden guested on this record on the sampler to add a certain unique zest on some tracks.
The trio released the vaporwave-inspired Infinite Fields in 2016, and is now supporting their vinyl compilation release, Psychedelic Power Pop.
