Electric Mary (formed after Rusty's encounter with Studio Manager Mary Campbell and a visit to Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady Studios) are a five piece rock band hailing out of Melbourne, Australia. Fronted by the smokey vocals of Rusty Brown, other members are: Irwin Thomas, Pete Robinson, Alex Raunjak and Venom on drums. Often described as classic rock, Electric Mary cites inspirations from a number of bands and musicians from Deep Purple to David Bowie their sound encompassing a combination of rich guitar riffs, bass and drums.
Two groups are called The machines: (1) A Russian Electronic group created by Anton Neumark, on the ataraxy records label. (2) Brilliant Belgian melodic pop-group around Paul Despieghelaere from the beginning of the 1980's. Late in the seventies, the Gent-based Nestormartin renames itself to The Machines and wins the second edition of HUMO's Rock-Rally in 1980. They write music in the best tradition of the Beatles and Talking Heads.
Savage and soul-drenched rock & roll from London. Jim Jones stirs up his disciples like a diabolical preacher, while his stage antics add fuel to the fire. His electrifying band, including a bastard son of The Killer, invokes the filthy swing. www.myspace.com/thejimjonesrevue
