Nuke the Soup is a project featuring Mark Davison, founding member of Cubic Feet. Make Waves Not War is the band’s first release, produced by Pete Solley.
The first single on the album is “Filled with Dread”. It is a peppy, ska tinged number which is a perfect summertime hit. “Ocean” is destined to become a surf anthem.
Nuke the Soup is looking to expand upon the Cubic Feet fan base with great new material and a top notch band.
Gus and Knots will be releasing their debut four song E.P. to their massive Facebook following, totaling almost 100 likes at the time of this writing.
Gus and Knots hate each other. They are always fighting for the spot light. Gus demanded that his name be first in the name of the band, threatened to go solo, and then cried about it until Knots gave in. Then Gus quit anyway. He then realized it’s hard work trying to go solo, so he got the band back together, which in turn prompted Knots to quit because he felt like he had the upper hand. Then Knots had the same feeling that Gus did and demanded that they reform. Gus said no, and Knots cried about it until finally Gus caved. They are currently making music and drinking Guinness in your backyard. You should go hang out.
I receive a lot of emails from readers promoting bands. I do not post them all, but when a reader is promoting is own band and sends me a video with some portuguese waves (my country) you have to post them. And better when the music is good!
The Al-Berto & the Fried Bikinis is a project from surfer and traveller Al-Berto, who’s for a long time “travelling for waves and rock around the world. On these remote places he also met a special kind of songs he had never seen before and decided to spend some time with them.”
While I’m spending some time in Brazil, I received an email from a reader promoting a Brazilian soul surfer and independent musician, who recorded a video with special guest Donavon Frankenreiter. His name is Dudu Braga (www.dudubraga.com), and the music is “Right here, right now”. Nice tune!
