THE METEORS (Kings of Psychobilly - UK)

Combining a revved-up variant on the classic rockabilly sound with a tongue-in-cheek obsession with horror movies and cartoonish violence, the Meteors were the U.K.'s leading psychobilly outfit, and often proudly declared that they were the only true exponents of the style (though history records that the Cramps were serving up their own ghoulish mix of rockabilly and horror first). The Meteors were the brainchild of guitarist and vocalist Paul Fenech, who first made a name for himself in the late '70s as a member of the British rockabilly group the Southern Boys. After a spell, Fenech and Southern Boys upright bassist Nigel Lewis teamed up to form a two-man rockabilly combo, Rock Therapy; drummer Mark Robertson was added to the lineup in 1980, and the group adopted a new name, Raw Deal.

While Raw Deal was beginning to attract attention among rockabilly fans and had landed spots on compilation albums, Fenech decided to give the group a new image. They adopted a punk-inspired look, added a mock-sinister undertow to their music, and adopted lyrics inspired by horror films such as The Hills Have Eyes and Blue Sunshine. Needing a new name to go with their new image, they began calling themselves the Meteors. In 1981, the group released its first album, In Heaven, issued as part of an ill-fated deal with Island Records, but the band's real breakthrough came with 1983's Wreckin' Crew, which featured a hit single cover of "Johnny Remember Me." By this time, Lewis and Robertson were both out of the band, replaced with Mick White and Steve "Ginger' Meadham taking over on bass and drums, respectively; frequent personnel turnovers would be regular part of the Meteors' story from this point forward, with Fenech the sole constant though literally dozens of lineups.

The band remained a popular attraction in the United Kingdom and Europe, touring frequently and releasing recordings at a steady pace through the 1980s and '90s, though it gained only a cult following in the United States. In the fall of 2000, Fenech announced that the Meteors would be giving up live performances following a swing through Germany, but to the relief of fans, he reconsidered and a few years later yet another lineup of the group was touring regularly and hard at work on new recordings.

DUSK (Surf - FR)

Dusk is a french Surf-rock band formed on end 2004, with 4 musician and their own inspiration. At the beginning, "Jams session" became quickly personnal & "all-style" songs to finish by concrete rehearsal sessions. No musical direction have ben decided... But with the lengh of time, surf music came from herself... Obviously you can heard that it's only a main style which can deviate to country music, blues or even flamenco ! Nowaday, Dusk has begun its fourth year of existence, have more than a hundred gigs localised in North of France and Belgium, and has also recorded two DIY CD...And they will go on !

SHADOW MOTEL (Rock Psyché - FR)

C’est dans un précédent projet musical que le noyau dur de Shadow Motel se dessine. Swan, chanteuse organiste et Julien s’organisent et affinent leurs envies pour faire une musique plus à leur image. Ils font leurs armes sur scène à Toulouse en enchainant petites salles et premières parties. Puis le projet s’exporte dans le Nord, à Lille. Terre fertile, puisqu'Edouard rejoint l’équipe pour dompter le Vox Jaguar au timbre mythique et les riffs de guitare au son sali, de ses généreux coups de batterie. Noise, dreampop, shoegaze -­‐certains disent même psyché-­‐ les qualificatifs vont bon train pour essayer d’étiqueter ce mélange étrange. Après une année 2012 incroyable, riche en concerts et rencontres, le groupe espère continuer dans cette lancée en 2013, en sortant leur premier EP pressé.
