All I can say is wowzers! I am thoroughly impressed. Mellow Bravo rocks! After listening to just a few moments of a couple of songs off their website, I have to say I am hooked! I just love that they list one of their influences as QOTSA. Freakin’ awesome! I have totally got to check this band out live. “Oh, yeah!” says the Kool-Aid guy.
I think that I first heard of this band through the internet. They have such an internet buzz going right now, I just had to check them out. I think it’s great for bands to create their virtual world. Someone in the business once told us to get as many of those internet “profile” sites for your band as you can, and he was so right. The new era of music is on the horizon, and I’m so glad bands like Mellow Bravo have learned how to optimize their internet presence to the fullest. I am quite thoroughly impressed -and caffeinated too, but that’s another story.
So, I would like to present the latest listing in the MassBands.org directory. Show some love to Mellow Bravo and check out some of their websites, now listed in our directory of really awesome sweet super local music. Ungh, take it! I know the list is quite plain at the moment (just anchor chapter indexed). I do plan on making the directory much more dynamic down the road. I do have an offline database growing of all you music business people, but have not integrated it over yet. Make sure to check out Mellow Bravo!
Uncomfortables are just an incredibly awesome band! A sweet blend of punk and rock to fill your soul. As I’ve seen on their website -and know by heart- they are too punk to be metal and too metal to be punk. That’s definitely one of the best places to be for a band. I’ve been catching up on some of their Youtube.com videos over the past few days. They’ve got some really crazy songs. I’ve always thought they were a great band, ever since I had met them a few years ago at The Lucky Dog Music Hall in Worcester, MA. A great bunch of guys, really down to Earth.
From the ashes three warriors rise to claim the Throne of Rock. J Blood on flame thrower guitar and lead vox, Scotty Blood on Bong- Rattling Bass and 2nd vocal Banana, and Dirk Futon, visceral as a saw blade into a careless shop student’s hand, and as nice as a very tribal St. Peter on the drums.
Uncomfortables are on 75 or Less Records and have quite an interesting history. For example, their first three shows as a band were in Italy. “A bit of a sort of impromptu tour that landed them in Rome on the West Coast, then to Teramo on the East.” How many acts can say that? That in itself is impressive. If you get a chance, check out Uncomfortables at Eganstock; their yearly festival “…and they get a ton of bands to play and have a big ‘ol party and whoop it up real good.” Sounds like a rocking time! Hopefully, we’ll be hearing more from the ever awesome Uncomfortables!
Make sure to check them out on Youtube.com and check out some of their web pages! Rock on!

This is from the “what will they think of next?” category. I just had to re-post this from BoingBoing.net. Shakti Stones! I’ve never heard of them -you? What will they think of next?
This band cooks! Awesome stuff. Check out songs like “Modern Girls”, “The Uncalm”, “Shadow” and “Novel Love” over at Boom Said Thunder’s Bandcamp page. I’m very impressed with this talented band -such soul and feel. Minimalist Fuzz rock at it’s best! I’ve gotta check this band out sometime, live. Boom! is available as a digital download (FLAC, MP3, etc..) from their Bandcamp Page for $4 or you can purchase a limited edition printing.
“We made 100 copies of our “Boom!” EP as a CD-R in handprinted packaging. Each package is hand numbered and has a unique illustration by John, Will, or Abby. There’s only a few left!”
For now, show some love and visit their websites; listed in the MassBands.org Directory. This is definitely an act to check out. Keep an eye out for Boom Said Thunder playing at a local venue near you. Rock on and remember to support your local scene!
