Iconic . . . legendary . . . unique . . . all can be used to describe
Richard Lloyd, but the most accurate word might be “relevant.” After a
career spanning more than forty years, Richard Lloyd continues to make
great records and deliver exciting live performances.

Learning from the master, Jimi Hendrix, Richard was among the very few
pioneers of the New York underground scene, headquartered at CBGB. With
Tom Verlaine, a founding member of the seminal band, Television, Richard
made some of the best rock and roll records of all time–Marquee Moon and
Adventure. Striking out on his own, Richard gave us Alchemy, Field of
Fire, Real Time, Radiant Monkey, The Jamie Neverts Story, The Cover
Doesn’t Matter, Lodestones, Rosedale! Richard Lloyd was also the guitar
master behind Matthew Sweet, John Doe, and Rocket From the Tombs.
The Ritualists
The Ritualists
"The Ritualists is NYC-based dark psychedelia. Fronted by lyricist and multi-instrumentalist, Christian Dryden, the group's fusion of classic glam rock, post punk and modern Brit-pop has raised more than a few eyebrows, earning them comparisons to legends such as David Bowie, Echo and The Bunnymen and The Verve, and the praise of Sex Pistols founder, Glen Matlock.

The Ritualists' live show combines aspects of traditional rawk theatricality and classical surrealism. They have awed audiences up and down the east coast, from The Highline Ballroom, NYC to The Masquerade in Atlanta. They were recently one of only 25 other artists chosen to participate in the All About Music festival in Nashville, TN. They have played alongside notable artists such as Lady GaGa, The Fiery Furnaces, Slinky Vagabond, and Spindrift. They have performed live for 107.7 WACC in Connecticut and 90.3FM WMSC Radio in Montclair, NJ. The Ritualists are also featured regularly on 107.1 FM, ""The Peak"" and 93.30 FM in Argentina."
The Martinets
The Martinets
The Martinets have been ripped out of NYC circa 1979 and transplanted to the 21st century for the listening pleasure of today's peoples. Two highly praised recordings, Love! Hate! and New Stories for Men, were released on Scooch Pooch, and the third, Comeback Tour, on Italian label Tornado Ride Records. Their fourth cd, the magnum opus Rock and Roll Will Probably Never Die, was released by Musick Recordings.
