Comadre

Comadre is a band from Redwood City (a suburb of San Francisco), California, comprising of former members of Heartcrosslove, One's Own Ruin, and Light This City. Their sound is an off-shoot of hardcore and punk played fast and chaotic with an abundance of energy, but also a large focus on melody and tunefulness. Their influences can perhaps best be shown by the covers the band has performed live, by groups such as Rites of Spring, Refused, Kid Dynamite, and Suicide File.

M.O.T.O.

MOTO stands for Masters Of The Obvious. Pretty much it's Paul and whoever is playing with him at the time. Some people think Paul's lyrics are too dirty but most people think they are funny. MOTO write songs that are catchy. That's all that really matters. It all got started in the early 80's in New Orleans. But then Paul moved somewhere else. MOTO have released dozens of albums, some cassette only, some CDs, some are little vinyl discs like this one. You've probably never heard of MOTO. It's a good thing that now you know.

The Fall

Famously described by john peel as being "always different, always the same", The Fall were formed in Manchester, England in 1976 during the punk era although their style quickly evolved into something more idiosyncratic.

The one permanent fixture amidst the Fall's ever-changing line-up is Mark E. Smith. Smith's lyrics are free, unboxed and unpredictable, touching on an extremely wide range of subjects and places and caring little for being tied down to easily digestible messages.

The Currency

The Currency are born of a proud lineage of convicts, bushrangers, stowaways and scoundrels. Combining punk rock and roll with celtic folk, these lads and lasses take up where legendary bands like 'Weddings Parties Anything' and 'Midnight Oil' left off by reviving the colonial folk ballad tradition. It's a rollicking seven piece orchestra that combines folk instruments with a fire cracker punk rhythm section. Fiddle, accordion, tin whistle, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar play a mix of of jigs and reels, waltzes, oz rock and punk that keeps the crowd dancing like crazy dingoes.
