If you’re not familiar with Abalienation, they were the godfathers of the Binghamton punk and hardcore music scene, dominating from the late 1980s through 1998. They combined a blistering attack of punk, metal and hardcore influenced by The Exploited, Dead Kennedys and Black Flag. The band toured the country several times playing with national acts like Fear, Sick of it All, Overkill and White Zombie. They released several tapes (remember those!) as well as the popular local CD, Puke The Truth (which includes the song “A Trillion Lives” from which the tribute band took their name).
Abalienation was founded in 1988 by unmistakable 6’5” twin brothers Mark and Mike Dickinson on guitar and vocals, respectively, with “Big Jim” Hofecker on bass and Louie Short on drums (later incarnations of the band included “Big Jeff”, Matt “Martian” and others on drums).
Mark is still active in the local scene, now better known as Marquis de Blood, frontman/guitarist for horror punk outfit Others. Mike moved to Toronto a decade ago to handle vocals for Murder Squad. Big Jim still lives locally and works as a television producer and director. Louie, Jeff, Matt and the other drummers have scattered locally and in other areas.

Described in SPIN magazine as "a high-energy cross between Brian Wilson, Paul Stanley, and Elton John,” Adam Marsland's pop adventurism and uncanny versatility has earned him one of the more prolific, unusual and intriguing music journeys of the last 20 years. Listeners confronting Marsland's kaleidescopic music and atypical career path for the first time all say exactly the same thing: "How have I never heard of this guy?"
A talented singer, arranger, performer, multi-instrumentalist and "one of the most gifted songwriters to come out of the west coast in a long time" (Time Out-NY), Marsland has pulled off rock, punk, baroque pop, soul and alt-country through the course of eleven albums and 25 tours. When his label collapsed on the week of the release of his band's third CD, he went totally underground, touring alone for 2 1/2 years straight and selling thousands of albums out of the back of a 1994 Toyota Tercel. Returning to L.A., he assembled a jaw-droppingly skilled band featuring a bonafide soul legend who amassed an astounding repertoire of 500 songs and performed complex multi-set tributes to the Beach Boys, Elton John, '70s soul and John Cale. After pulling off a career-defining thematic double album followed immediately by a punk-flavored effort recorded in one day, Marsland then moved on to a third musical stage as a successful session musician and producer. As of 2014, he is now maintaining a simultaneous career as a songwriter, bandleader, session musician AND producer, and has returned to touring not just in the U.S., but all across the world, with a new album poised to at last break this perennially overlooked artist out of cult status.
Cockeyed Ghost/The Big Deal Era
A writer of songs "almost too literate and catchy for mass consumption" (All Music Guide), starting at age 16 Adam scored spotty college and commercial airplay with a series of quirky, self-released cassette and vinyl releases before moving to California to found the high-octane pop-punk band Cockeyed Ghost with current drummer Kurt Medlin. The band signed to Rykodisc-distributed indie Big Deal in 1996 and made two albums, KEEP YOURSELF AMUSED and NEVEREST, appeared with Fastball, Third Eye Blind and Shonen Knife, graced the cover of the L.A. Weekly and even appeared in an NBC-TV movie. A change in membership and a move toward emotional, baroque pop resulted in 1999's THE SCAPEGOAT FACTORY, which The New York Press named album of the year. It also coincided with Big Deal going bankrupt, killing momentum for the band.
The D.I.Y. Era
Marsland fought for and won back the rights to his albums and then pressed on with Cockeyed Ghost's last and finest album, LUDLOW 6:18, a desert rock film noir which came out in May 2001. At first ignored and poorly distributed, Adam hit the road in a series of "One Man, One Car, One Guitar" tours, logging 350 shows and 75,000 miles in the next two years, documented on his 2002 live album 232 DAYS ON THE ROAD. He also found time to contribute keyboards and vocals to L.A. singer/songwriter (and 2008 Tony-winning playwright) Stew and The Negro Problem on tours with Counting Crows and John Mayer and on the highly acclaimed albums JOYS AND CONCERNS and THE NAKED DUTCH PAINTER. The LUDLOW 6:18 CD eventually garnered a small, but devoted following. Bassist Robert Ramos left the band for family reasons shortly thereafter, and the Cockeyed Ghost moniker was retired.
Adam Marsland's Chaos Band
Returning back to Los Angeles, Adam formed an unlikely, but enduring, alliance with the similarly unpredictable soul chanteuse Evie Sands. Along with Cockeyed Ghost alumni Kurt Medlin and Severo and keyboardist John Perry, they cut Adam's solo studio debut YOU DON'T KNOW ME, which was released in 2004 and was the first of Adam's records to garner substantial commercial radio play. Adam Marsland's Chaos Band -- with ex-Dragster Barbie bassist Teresa Cowles replacing Severo, who left to join The Smithereens – began a rigorous playing schedule and stunned audiences with its NRBQ-like versatility, whipping out covers by Dead Kennedys and the O’Jays with equal panache, and playing as many as 60 songs in one night. They then mounted an ambitious tribute to Beach Boys Carl and Dennis Wilson with Beach Boys archivist (and 2013 Grammy Winner) Alan Boyd. This drew the attention of Beach Boy Al Jardine, who appeared with the band at a few shows that year.
Dennis and Carl Wilson Tribute Album
Grammy-award winning engineer Mark Linett (Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE) recorded the band's June 24, 2006 performance for the LONG PROMISED ROAD: SONGS OF DENNIS AND CARL WILSON – LIVE album, which was released over the internet in December and hit record stores March 13, 2007. The album, which showcased the band's harmonic and instrumental versatility and was released with few studio overdubs, was a steady seller throughout the year and even made the short list for a Grammy nomination, missing by only a few votes in the Pop Performance category.
"Daylight Kissing Night - Adam Marsland's Greatest Hits"
In 2008 Adam returned to full-time music-making with a 20 track album called DAYLIGHT KISSING NIGHT: ADAM MARSLAND'S GREATEST HITS released on March 18, 2008. With a artist-breaking $5.99 list price and several new recordings included, the album was his first marketed exclusively to the retail chain since his Big Deal days, and was the subject of an intense word-of-mouth campaign among Adam's fan base. The CD immediately sold out across the U.S. and reached #17 on Amazon's rock chart, followed by a traditional media campaign and a 40-date national tour in the summer.
Upon returning from tour, Adam immediately set to work on his first album of original material in five years. Despite the tragic deaths of two family members and a home invasion during recording, two album's worth of material was assembled around a coming-of-age storyline. The stylistically varied, 23-track double album GO WEST was released on August 18, 2009, immediately shooting to the top of Amazon's best-seller list (#22), followed by an extensive national press and radio campaign and a full-band tour of the U.S. throughout the last quarter of 2009. GO WEST made significant inroads to college radio, with 120 stations adding the record. Many critics and listeners considered the album Adam's finest album to date, but despite its quality (and a popular video for the single "When I Lied To Everyone"), the extreme length and diversity of the album coupled with the difficulties of touring in a recession hindered its breaking through to a larger audience.
While on tour, Adam added another achievement to his resume: writing an entire album in the van, and recorded all 14 songs from start to finish with his touring band in one 8-hour session at a studio outside Cleveland, Ohio with noted metal producer Bill Korecky. Titled HELLO CLEVELAND, it was released in January 2010. After 6 years, he also unexpectedly reunited with his bandmates in Cockeyed Ghost for a benefit concert in December 2009. After the release of HELLO CLEVELAND, Adam indicated that he would step back from promoting his own music to work with other artists.
Adam then became an increasingly sought-after quintuple threat (keyboards/guitar/bass/drums/vocals) session player, bandleader and producer with a reputation for accuracy and detail, most notably after recording and playing live with Hal Blaine, Don Randi and Jerry Cole of the legendary Wrecking Crew. His list of backing credits includes members of the Beach Boys, Stew, Davie Allan, Carnie and Wendy Wilson, Pete Ham of Badfinger (posthumously), Paul Collins, Julia Fordham, Kjehl Johansen (Urinals), Sara Stanley, Rich McCulley, Kaz Murphy, Jeff Merchant and countless others. He acted as producer on soul singer Norman Kelsey's 2007 debut album A Talent For Loving, as well as arranging vocals on Anny Celsi's albums Tangle Free World and January, and music directing the 2008 Carl Wilson Foundation concert at the Roxy Theatre. He opened his home studio to the public in February 2010 and his first production project there, Adam Exler's The Writing's On The Wall, was completed in June.
Adam did some shows co-fronting (with founder Larry Tamblyn) a version of the legendary '60s band The Standells in 2011, producing and writing a number of songs for a proposed comeback album before Adam left the band citing financial strains. This turned out to be a prescient move as the band became mired in litigation almost immediately after his depature. The nearly completed, Adam-produced "Standells" album, much more in the band's classic style than the finished album the band released in 2013, remains unreleased.
Undaunted but wiser, Adam returned to his own production and songwriting career. He also performed with a reunited lineup of the SST art-punk band Trotsky Icepick at their first live shows in 17 years, opening for the Meat Puppets. He inaugurated a series of highly successful "Adam's '70s Shows" with the Chaos Band, backing various artists on songs from that influential decade, and continues to maintain a busy schedule with sideman and production work. Among literally hundreds of sessions he produced include Norman Kelsey's album On The Rebound, featuring help from members of Earth Wind and Fire and X, Harold Honey's Helltown, and extensive work on the forthcoming CD Giraffe by Jeff Cameron, including backing vocals on the lead single, a duet with Three Dog Night vocalist Chuck Negron, "Heroes."
Comeback/ "The Owl and the Full Moon"
In mid 2013, Marsland surprised many by announcing an ambitious return to original music, announcing his most extensive tour ever -- 60 shows covering the entire continental U.S., Canada, England, Holland, Germany and Japan. A new, harmony-laden CD followed entitled The Owl And The Full Moon, which was widely praised as Marsland's most accessible album to date. Reinvigorated by both the reception and after finally being treated for a long-standing illness that had sapped his energy, Marsland built on the momentum as 2014 dawned, announcing another round of international touring and his first-ever comprehensive radio campaign to AAA and non-commercial radio. M:M Music, voted the #1 Independent Radio Promoter in the U.S., has signed on to handle the effort, which for the first time in many years will bring Marsland's music out from the underground and to a wider audience.

Agents of Exile
Agents of Exile
A fire created by a late Starr.
Inspired by a phone call from the late Mike Starr, Christopher Hall set out to create a band. Mike, the former bass player for Alice n Chains was interested in playing again, and thought Chris would be a great place to start with Chris' cre-dentials as a guitar player.
The first road block came in finding a singer. After contacting former singers from past projects, and trying to find someone who fit the project, Chris was coming up short. Out of frustration, he resorted to Google and typed: "Greatest singer in the World".
A name actually popped up. Craig Charles. Thanks to a fluke comment made by
someone who viewed one of Craig's youtube videos and called him a great singer, Chris finally felt like he was on to something or someone.
After the tragic loss of Mike Starr, Chris, and Craig still moved forward with the project. Fast forward to today, the new band: Agents of Exile has a full length album and are hoping that the sky is the limit, inspired by a Shooting Starr.

Later that year, "The Deafening Silence of Grinding Gears" LP was released by Tribal War Records during the Primate Freedom Tour with Aus-Rotten, Mark Bruback, Fly and Sarah O'Donell. The LP was also released in Germany by Skuld Releases. That summer Antiproduct also played the "More Than Music Festival" in Columbus, OH dedicated to DIY Feminist Politics with Kill The Man Who Questions, Red Monkey, Bread & Circuits, Former Members of Alfonsin and many more.
The band began incorporating cello into new material in early 2000 and toured the east coast of the US with Submission Hold that summer. A song was included on a Farm Sanctuary benefit compilation put out by the Mountain Cooperative in 2001. Antiproduct played very few shows those years while most of the band relocated from upstate NY to Philadelphia. In 2002 "The EP's of AP" CD was released by Tribal War Records and included seven inches, comp tracks and a never released EP.
South Dakota killed the van that summer on the way to meet Submission Hold and Please Inform the Captain This Is A Hijack for a tour of the west coast. Due to health problems, stress and seven years of growing in countless different directions, AP decided to call it a day, just one week into that tour. Antiproduct played for the last time on June 22, 2002 at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, CA. Sadness, relief and healing followed.
A second LP was in the works for Ebullition Records, but unfortunately none of the newer material was recorded before the end. The ex-AP members are busy these days pursuing music, art, parenting, school, activism and beyond. Vocalist, Taina Asili was 16 when she joined the band. After 8 years with the band she became the vocalist of Ricanstruction.

A world of vapid attitude and hollow posturing, where the sheep think they’re the leaders and the leaders take that carefully crafted illusion all the way to the bank. Where fashion dictates the ridiculing and complete disregard of the past. A world with collective selective amnesia, where the mere hint of that former glory brings terror to the puppetmasters and peer disrespect and condemnation. Now,.. imagine having a choice,… to join the flock and cash in, playing the role of the piper even though you know the path leads only to the slaughterhouse door, OR… awaken, pick up where you left off and hope that there are still a few who can hear and understand. A few who have not been permanently deafened to the call of their own hearts and souls…
Take them lightly at your own peril— ANUBIS SPIRE is awake.
>>>>>>>>Taken from BOOK 9-The church of the closed loop
ANUBIS SPIRE was formed new years day 1998 after an chance jam session the night before. Made up of musical veterans who wanted to write and play music in the mid-seventies style of such bands as Led Zeppelin, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc., the band set about melding it’s various influences and adding a heavy dose of world and ethnic sounds and a 90′s twist to the mix. The debut CD-OLD LIONS(in the world of snarling sheep) was recorded in a barn, on an antiquated 8 track almost entirely LIVE!
What does ANUBIS SPIRE sound like? One reviewer summed them up as: “Progressive rock from Mars, filtered through Atlantis, india and ancient Egypt and sounding kinda like a fistfight between Jimi Hendrix and John McLaughlin at the base of the great pyramid!” We couldn’t agree more!

a Satellite Crash
Once the band had six songs they felt that it was time to unleash the beast. It took a very long time to decide on a name. Nobody could agree on anything. The first show that they played was a big benefit for Food Not Bombs with almost every band in Binghamton. At the time of the show they were called Silent Spring. Shortly after that show they finally agreed upon a Satellite Crash. (the “a” is suppossed to be lower case). They tried to play as many local shows as they could. With school and work it was a bit difficult. In the late fall of that year the band made a trek up to Albany to record their first demo, Project Mercury. Two hundred of these were originally made and they went pretty quickly. After the release of Project Mercury the band started to develop a local following. The quickly became known for their insane live shows where anything could happen. a Satellite Crash chiefly played in the Binghamton area for a while do to other commitments. They did play in Albany and in Buffalo.
In the summer of 1999 the band took a three month long hiatus. Sean went to Boston to work for a leftist magazine, Paul spent the summer studying in South Africa, and Bijoy went to work in Albany for the summer. Kevin and Derek continued with their other band. When the summer was over and the semester started back up again the band got right back into the swing of things. They spent a few weeks practicing and working on new material. As a result of sending out some of the Project Mercury demos the band got some good reviews and an offer by a great guy named Jamil who runs Spiritfall Records. He heard the demo and asked if he could put out a seven inch with the band. The band agreed. The idea for a seven inch eventually turned into a split twelve inch with a band from New Jersey called, Neil Perry. The band packed up their gear and drove to New Jersey to record for the upcoming release. They spent an entire Saturday recording three new songs and redoing three old tunes. The next day the boys went to Philadelphia to play the first ever Lost Film Festival.
In January of 2000, the band embarked on their first tour. Seven days and seven nights. The band members got to learn a lot about one another on that tour. They met a great deal of awesome people and got to play with some amazing bands. While awaiting the arrival of the split twelve inch, a Satellite Crash went back into the studio, this time in Binghamton, and began recording more material. One song is going to be on a Mountain Records comp. for Farm Sanctuary that should be out this summer. The band decided to use the songs they recorded to put towards another self released effort.
Born in the States to an Indian father and a Filipina mother, medical residents who had $32 and not a winter coat between them upon their East Coast arrival, Athena was destined to have a foot in two worlds, and a tenacious penchant for defying the odds. At three years old, in the mid-state valley town of Binghamton, NY, she started taking Yamaha piano lessons with her big sister. At five, they’d joined the children’s chorus in the Tri-Cities Opera Company. Then school chorus, church choir, jazz band, symphonic band, youth orchestra—singing and playing clarinet, bass clarinet, alto sax, drums.
Music was a critical form of expression for a tiny girl with a huge heart who feared she would never truly belong in any one tribe or place. Writing poetry, traveling the world, exploring multiple religions—all of this helped her see at a young age how perspectives could change according to where, when and how you lived. As the political drive behind hip-hop and the psychedelic philosophy of the 60's and 70's started to expand her consciousness, her beliefs as a rebellious first-generation American kid so often clashed with her parents'. Her adolescent years in Binghamton felt increasingly restrictive and alienating. So Athena took off for The Hotchkiss School, and started a whole new leg of her journey.
Being at boarding school gave Athena a singular opportunity to redefine herself and start making more autonomous choices. Musically, she started playing less classical piano and more classic/jam rock in the nine-piece band “Noodie With Weapons”. Her favorite English teacher and advisor predicted that Athena would be a "serious poet" by her 40s. The school’s fairly conservative environment pushed Athena to find an authentic voice in the counterculture, to sharpen her ability to realize her dreams despite the odds being against her.
Many of those odds, she admits, were her own fears and insecurities about never being the best, never walking a straight line. But she had enough irrepressible gumption and audacity to make her own way at Vassar College. She was the first student to do an independent Anthropological research program in Havana, Cuba. When she returned, she became a leader in Vassar’s revered fieldwork program with long-term inmates at Greenhaven Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison. Those two experiences taught her that the real story is often obscured by a well-worn story, and she set out to speak the truth through the megaphone of radio.
She secured a position as an intern on the Washington Desk at National Public Radio in 1998. That was the start of an eight-year career in journalism that spanned some of the most significant events in recent history, including Bill Clinton's impeachment, the 2000 elections, the September 11th attacks, the invasion of Iraq, the clergy sex abuse scandal and legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts.
Being at NPR enlivened Athena’s love of sound and narrative, the intimacy and power of the human voice, and the magic of sound production. She also became a regular fixture as a singer and performer for in-house NPR shows and around the DC area. But by the time she worked her way up to being a full-time reporter in Boston, music took a far back seat while her radio career took the wheel.
It was a change of career and location that brought her back to music. Athena's health had suffered during her time reporting on-air, and she'd used Chinese medicine to survive that time. She got her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine in 2011.
But a few years later when her family had to move to Singapore for her husband's work, she was prohibited from practicing acupuncture, and she took on playing and writing as much music as possible. She quickly formed strong connections in the music scene there - an amazing mix of talented locals and expats. Athena realized music could no longer be relegated to a distant pastime; it changed who she was, how she was living and how her purpose would manifest in the world. Her writing began to reflect the integration of her greatest influences: the frank emotionality and compelling grooves of soul music, and the simplicity and accessibility of Americana and bluegrass music. The bridging of those worlds creates a perfect semblance of Athena's distinctive style.
Upon her return to the states, she joined the Nashville Songwriters Association and ASCAP, and she made two critical partnerships: with Senior Engineer and Producer Alex Allinson at the renowned Bridge Sound and Stage studios, and Boston Music Award-winning bass player and producer Matthew Girard. Both producers encouraged Athena to develop her solo acoustic tracks into a more fleshed-out sound, and the seeds of her debut record took root.
Athena expanded her performing presence, at Boston-area institutions such as The Middle East and The Lilypad, and also at women’s empowerment and social justice events like the Domestic Violence Services Network annual memorial service for the state’s domestic violence victims, and the Inaugural Gala for the burgeoning entrepreneurial organization The Lady Project.
She also won scholarships to songwriting and artist development programs with folk-urban guitar legend Patti Larkin, and celebrity vocal coach and new business mentor Cari Cole. Athena landed her first co-write on the Billboard bluegrass chart-topping album "Laws of Gravity", the latest from Grammy-nominated newgrass virtuosos The Infamous Stringdusters.
Athena releases her debut EP this winter. "This record came out of a fierce exploration of all of the textures, all the insane places we inhabit when we're no longer standing on predictability, on other people's expectations or approval - when we take the leap into creating life that's authentic, and bold, and seemingly impossible. I'm finally owning that my journey has a lot to do with surrendering the struggle, and getting into flow with divine guidance—with a purpose that's larger than me," says Athena. "My aspiration is that whoever listens to this record pulls back their own veils, and opens those doors where dreams have been knocking and won't go away. When we share what's real for us, we give each other the courage to dance outside the box."
Next up for Athena is the release of her psychedelic electronica EP “Drunk with Honey”, a collaboration with producers Chris Mandra, an old NPR friend and electronica mastermind, and world music innovator N’dinga Gaba. That record is due out in Spring 2018. Meanwhile, Athena plans to continue writing with the Stringdusters and other breakout artists, developing her own music, and evolving her life in service and joy. “It’s such a vulnerable space, but I have to tell people how possible it is to travel from a fear of heights to totally soaring,” Athena says. “My story only counts if it lights a fire in the next unexpecting soul.”

The Benjamin Raubinsons
The Raubinsons were formed in Binghamton, New York in late 2008 by Clint Ferro-vocals/drums/guitar/harmonica, Ben Raub-bass/electric guitar, and Dave Williams-electric guitars/vocals/drums.The Benjamin Raubinsons were one of the first bands to break into the growing "attic rock" movement in upstate NY.
The term "attic rock" stems from the bands early rehearsals and recordings taking place in the bands Endicott, NY attic practice space. The Raubinsons gained early attention due to Williams 60's pop rock guitars, Ferro's powerful delayed vocal harmonies and Raub's rich bass lines. Their powerful 60's pop rock choruses included room for vocal harmonies giving listeners a new sound widely due to the band's variety of musical influences.

The Burns Sisters
The Burns Sisters' professional musical career began when several of the sisters moved to Ithaca, New York where they originally sang with the David Kent Band. One of their earliest successes was when their music appeared in the Louis Malle film Atlantic City as a result of family members who had Hollywood connections. As a quintet made up of sisters Marie, Annie, Jeannie, Sheila, and Terry, the band released The Burns Sisters Band (1986), and Endangered Species (1989) before splitting up for a few years. In 1993 the quintet released Songs of the Heart before older sisters Terry and Sheila dropped out to devote more time to their families. Agreeing to continue as a trio, Annie, Marie and Jeannie switched their focus to acoustic music.
Marie and Annie have been the primary writers and producers of the group.Most performances are with a full band which includes a dobro player, guitarist, and Marie Burns on mandolin.
In 1995 they signed with Rounder/Philo Records and went on to release four albums for the label over the next several years, including 1996's holiday album titled Tradition: Holiday Songs Old and New which was reviewed for the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange.Their 1997 album In This World was produced by bassist Garry Tallent who added a dash of rock to their sound.
In 2004 The Burns Sisters met Arlo Guthrie at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. This meeting resulted in the sisters touring with Arlo in 2005 on his "Arlo Guthrie and Friends Ridin' on the City of New Orleans - Benefiting Victims of Katrina" tour and again on his "The Lost World Tour" in 2008-09.
In 2012, the Burns Sisters released the album, The Hills of Ithaca. The title was inspired by a 1947 Woody Guthrie poem which the Burn Sisters put to music after being given the unpublished version by Woody's daughter, Nora Guthrie. The album also includes Bob Childers' song, "Prisoner of the Promised Land" written in Okemah, Oklahoma, while attending the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. The album includes two songs by Jeannie Burns: "Underbelly Blues" which she co-wrote with Andrew Hardin – her partner in the duo Hardin Burns – and “Your Kiss,” which she wrote with Hardin and her sister, Marie.
Jeannie Burns left the band in 2013 to study guitar and songwriting, with Marie and Annie now performing as a duo.

Butch Skeene & The Second Edition
In the early 1970's, the group broke up, with its members moving on to other opportunities in the music business and beyond. With the exception of a brief reunion in 1992, the band disappeared until recently. Now more mature, and even more distinguished musically, they've come back together to rock the music scene once again
And they do. Though there's a lot less hair, the years haven't diminished their enthusiasm or energy. But it has broadened their music - they now perform Rock, Pop and soulful R&B. The only change in the lineup is the drummer, whose rockin' rhythms belie his respectable day job.
Butch Skeene - Lead Singer What can you say about Butch that hasn't been said a thousand times? His voice is a wonder whose perfect tones and amazing range have awed generations of concert-goers around the world. |
After the band originally broke up, Butch sang both as a member of groups and solo in major hotels, resorts and concert venues. For 2 1/2 years, Butch was a respected member of the "New Century" Platters, one of the spin-offs of the original Platters.
At home singing Do-Wap, Rock, R&B and Pop, Butch never fails to move the listener. That's why they keep coming back for more.
The years haven't hurt this remarkable voice. It's still, to a great extent, the heart and soul of Butch Skeene & The 2nd Edition. It's grown deeper and duskier and, if possible, even more soulful than before.
Larry Cornwell - Keyboards Larry is the cool jazz-looking guy, master of the keyboards. In the past, his "straight" jobs included aerospace electronics design. But for most of the last decade, he's immersed himself full-time in the music industry as co-owner and manager of On Point Studios and Gallery, the area's premiere recording studio. |
He's branched out into art over the last couple of years by creating a gallery as part of On Point's studio space . The gallery regularly exhibits works by artists ranging from sculptors to photographers, painters and even cartoonists.
A lot less hair now, but the same talent, energy and boundless enthusiasm for music.
Charlie Eaton - Guitar Talk about changes! At one point he had a beard down to his belly, and look at him now! Better groomed, but just as crazy, Charlie is a great guitarist in any genre of music. |
He spent some years working behind the scenes in music, on the sales side. Now he's back where he belongs - as a serious guitar god. Older, wiser, but definitely none the worse for wear.
Ferris Lebous - Drums Talk about contrasts - his day job in the legal system vs. his nights rockin' at the drumset like a madman. |
He's really good, too, driving the beat relentlessly with great energy and flair. Butch Skeene & The 2nd Edition is not Ferris' first band. His reputation is well-earned for his celebrated work with another band, The Rhythm Cats.
He's the only member of Butch Skeene & The 2nd Edition who wasn't in the original band. Doesn't matter. He's a perfect fit with the rest of the guys, like he'd been there from day one.

DVM was the biggest thing in the Binghamton Music Scene during the 1980s and was disbanded when lead singer, Duncan Fortner moved from the area in 1996. But the band is back and better than ever. Devastation Masters is music you can slam to but this band is more than punk rock gold. DVM is meaning and protest. Even the titles tell the story, with songs like Wipe It Out, Clean The Water and Liberty.
Since 1983 Devastation Masters has been blasting out hard core punk. If you like you music loud and your lyrics straight forward without regard for political correctness, this is the band for you. If you are a politically correct sissy go listen to Beiber.

“We started off playing Rock in high school. Then Jazz and Classical music in college. Then we dove head first into Folk and Bluegrass. At some point I guess we kind of met in the middle”, says guitarist/songwriter Dan Forsyth. Drawing on aspects of everything from Old-time to 1960’s R&B, the music is crafted to serve the songs. With fast growing audiences singing along at live shows, it’s easy to tell the primary focus is on song.
“We recognized early on that one of our strongest points was songwriting. The greatest songs transcend genre and time and this was one of the motivating ideas behind the band at the start”, says banjo player/songwriter Joe Kollar. Trading lead vocals between Forsyth, Kollar and violinist/songwriter Claire Byrne, the group’s stage dynamics are as captivating as the songs. “I give so much of myself when I play because I deem it necessary in order to do the music justice”, says Byrne, who’s violin shredding performances are legendary among fans. Songs or shredding, “There’s a reason people won’t let them off the stage”, says Jess Novak from The Syracuse New Times.
Formed in 2005, the band spent four years playing just about anywhere they could. “We just wanted to be able to play for any crowd and turn heads”, says banjo player Joe Kollar. “We played everywhere. Coffee houses, bars, churches, rock clubs, Bluegrass festivals and the streets…a lot on the streets. We didn’t make any money but what we learned was invaluable”. After the release of their Debut CD “Rally Day” in 2009, the band has spent most of the last 3 years on the road. With club and festival appearances alongside of artists such as Bela Fleck, Rusted Root, Del McCoury, Brett Dennen, The Wailers, Railroad Earth, Rubblebucket and Donna the Buffalo, Driftwood is making serious waves on the East Coast scene. In the last year they played over 170 shows. With the release of their newest CD “A Rock & Roll Heart” in 2011, the band landed spins on a slew of great radio shows and stations such as WFUV’s Sunday Breakfast with John Platt; KZSU, Stanford, CA; WCBE, Columbus, OH; and WDVX, Knoxville, TN."Today these old-time sounds are being fused with more modern influences of rock & roll; and bands like Binghamton-based Driftwood are moving right along pace with today's most popular Electronica acts, breaking ground, strings, and expectations by drawing on our roots to create a sound that speaks to us all."
