Sally•Can't•Dance
Sally•Can't•Dance
In a time when everyone says New York City is dead, all the artists, outlaws, and anything fun has been forced to the outer boroughs, a group of friends and instigators have decided to come together to start a monthly rock ‘n’ roll party, Sally Can’t Dance. It’s a night to bring all the tribes together, dressed up and messed up, for decadence and debauchery on the dance floor. This is a place for fast kids and old pros, drag queens and young punks, glitter glam and doom.

Fist Of Facts
Fist Of Facts
The bastard child of Liquid Liquid’s Salvatore Principato & Ken Man Caldeira (part of the Liquid Liquid extended family and original Liquid Idiot member).

Fist Of Facts began life in a basement studio on Ludlow Street, downtown Manhattan, in the mid-80s. The bastard child of Liquid Liquid’s Salvatore Principato & Ken Man Caldeira (part of the Liquid Liquid extended family and original Liquid Idiot member) the bands original carnation lasted nearly a decade during which they created a uniquely downtown New York sound evoking a musical, cultural and political construct that could only have evolved at that particular time in that particular place. The Fist Of Fact's sound was mostly captured on a 4-track recorder synched to some long expired sequencing software, however, in performance the band consisted of Sal, Ken Man and a computer or possibly a nine piece ensemble replete with a horn section. Never standing still long enough to be defined, Fist Of Facts defied any attempt to stifle the spirit of their music and strove to avoid compromise, digging deep into the idiosyncracies of their personal experiences, political understandings and musical sensibilities. The band developed through an ever changing lineup of significant contributors who passed through the studio or took to the stage to help decorate the sound and make their mark. Among those who contributed to this project were Mark Cunningham, Felice Rosser, Don Dowdye, Carlos Vivanco, Genevieve Boulet De Monvel, Jojo Kuo, James Duncan, Paddy Boom, Dave Mandl and many others. Their initial release was with Helvete Underground Records out of Geneva, Switzerland in 1988, in 2010 the London imprint, Claremont 56, released some of the bands archived recordings in a 500 limited edition vinyl copies. They periodically come together to update their music and play live shows.

"Part shaman, part seductress, Liza Colby was born to earn the Queen Of Rock N’ Roll mantle. Her music is for sinful Saturday nights, and redemptive Sunday mornings. It’s heartbreak music; it’s music of sexual liberation; it’s music for when it matters most. It’s The Liza Colby Sound. It’s the music we need in these times.

Imagine Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden meets James Brown at the Apollo. Picture Tina Turner prowling the stage like Iggy Pop with vocals that conjure Aretha Franklin and Humble Pie’s Steve Marriott. Hyperbolic? Nah, come to a show, and look out for The Liza Colby Sound’s upcoming EP, DRAW.

“When I sing, I want it to be badass, feminine, empowering, and ooze sexuality,” the New York City-based artist says. “I want to kick mother#$&ers in the face with rock n’ roll.”

The Liza Colby Sound is known for an aesthetic that harnesses the grit of garage rock, the anthemic power of classic arena rock, the sweat-soaked salvation of a soul revue, and the sneering defiance of punk rock. Liza’s vocals are boldly vulnerable, shaking the rafters and rattling your soul. LCS sound has toured throughout the East Coast, performing in venues such as Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, PNC Bank Arts Center, The Wellmont Theater, and Jones Beach. LCS has also performed to a packed house at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. To date, the rock n’ roll quartet has issued two EPs, previous releases include the well-received High Yellow (2011) and Live(2013).

The Liza Colby Sound includes a trio of musicians who have played for almost two decades. These formidable instrumentalists boast impressive resumes that include working with Ozzy Osbourne, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, Raging Slab, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys, Lenny Kaye, Jim Carroll Band, the Del Fuegos (featuring Dan Zanes), The Paley Brothers, Denis Leary, and Joey Ramone, among other well-known names. These all-stars are also known for scoring music for film and TV, most recently they’ve contributed to the Denis Leary show Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

The core of The Liza Colby Sound is Adam Roth guitar, Alec Morton bass, and C.P. Roth drums. December 2015, Adam passed away after a brave battle with cancer. LCS has remerged with fiery psychedelic guitarist Tom McCaffrey (Gloria Gaynor and Liberty DeVitto) as a full-fledged member.

Outside of The Liza Colby Sound, Liza has lent silk and sandpaper vocal stylings to Enrique Iglesias, Denis Leary John Legend, The Gold Setting, Johnny Burgos, The Sweet Things, Chris Rock's movie Top 5 (which featured her song “It Ain’t Easy”), Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll (she’s the singing voice of Elaine Hendrix). In addition, Liza’s voice has appeared on ESPN, VH1, NASCAR, and Sesame Street.

DRAW channels the power of LCS live. The 4-song EP crackles with fiery musicality, muscular grooves, and moments of reflective soul-ballad beauty. The leadoff single, “My World,” explodes open with an iconic, instantly recognizable guitar figure. This future smash is a gritty and seductive pop-rock number that explores the expanse of female sexuality from dominant to submissive with relentless moxie. On the track, guitarist Adam Roth turns in solos that evoke honey dripping down on naked bodies. The simmering soul waltz “I Love You” conjures the longing of being desperately in love with someone who is going to leave and the cocksure “Cryin”.

The EP is a tribute to the tenacity of The Liza Colby Sound, and it also represents a brave new future. “The title ‘DRAW’ means it’s time to pull the trigger.” Liza says with graceful defiance. “We will Mach Schau.”
