James Chance
James Chance
Born: April 20, 1953 in Milwaukee, USA. Arriving from Milwaukee with a saxophone on his knee, James (Siegfried) Chance/White/Black quickly became the linchpin of the budding New-York No Wave movement, appearing in Teenage Jesus And The Jerks with Lydia Lunch. More than any of his contemporaries, Chance turned harsh, abrasive music into an art form; at one time or another, almost everyone of any importance on the New York art-rock scene was in his band.

Diane Gentile and the Gentle Men
Diane Gentile and the Gentle Men
Diane Gentile,currently has her own band called Diane and The Gentle Men, featuring Colin Brooks (Hurricane Bells), Jason Victor (The Dream Syndicate) and Matt Basile (ex-Mother Feather).

Playing shows to full houses in venues such as Rockwood Music Hall and Berlin in downtown Manhattan, the band soon ended up in a cool new studio built in an old firehouse in Redhook Brooklyn, called Atomic, where Interpol and Mark Ronson had recently recorded. Steve Wynn agreed to produce this first EP to be released through Velvet Elk/One Little Indian Records (Bjork, Dead Heavens, Twilight Singers).

The A-side, "Motorcycle" "was inspired by strumming a warn in 1957 Gibson drinking a glass of white wine and thinking about one of the new local heroes in town, who plays in a couple of bands, Threats/Drowners. B- side "Boyfriend" and bonus track "Wasted Word" were blasted through fast and loose in that instant one-day session.

The record was mixed by Clif Norell, (R.E.M., The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen) and the other tracks mixed by Merle Chornuk (Ryan Adams, Nels Cline), the owner of Atomic Studios.

With this first EP behind her, Diane began opening for acclaimed artists: Richard Lloyd (Television), Steve Wynn, Jesse Malin, Tommy Stinson, Jason Darling, Laura Cantrell and more.

The "Motorcycle" single was chosen by Little Steven for Little Steven's Underground Garage for "Coolest Song" program whereby the song was played in heavy rotation that lastest many weeks. The B-side "Girlfriend" was also featured.
The video has over 1000 views and the song is constantly hot on Shazam.

Diane and the Gentle Men just completed recording "Little Things" and "Perfect People", the new digital 45 they will release in November. The full album hits in January.
