Phoenix based Reggae / Ska band. Really fricking fun!
THE REBEL SET
The Rebel Set are a three piece garage rock group from Phoenix and when I say "garage" rock band, I'm not talking about the recent trend of noisy lo-fi music. These guys are a real "garage" rock band. The trio takes from early sixties punk, surf, and psych. The guitar kicks ass, the songs are even dirtier, and the production sounds like that of an old sixties garage punk 45. Standout tracks include, "Poison Arrow", a dark brooding garage cut with an extremely catchy verse, "Martian", with guitar that harkens back to Apache, and an eerie theramin intro, "Birds and Bees", a 60's punk throwback that is impossible not to thrash to, and "Muckraker", which sounds like an early Iggy Pop song. Overall, this album rules and these guys should be proud for creating something new and awesome out of something old and awesome.

MOONLIGHT MAGIC
MOONLIGHT MAGIC consists of veteran Phoenician musicians: Jaime Paul Lamb (composer/guitarist), ex-Van Buren Wheels, current member of Thee Faded Pyctures and Mighty Sphincter; Andrew Jemsek (organ/accordion/composer), an alumni of local faves the Andrew Jackson Jihad, Father's Day and Serene Dominic Band; Ruth Wilson (electric and upright bass), ex-member of Flathead and Acapulco 5-O; Eddy Detroit (percussion), a storied Phoenix icon and "tiki outsider/cult weirdo"; and Steve Asetta (saxophone/percussion), a frequent collaborator of Jaime's from NYC's jazz & avant garde music scene. MOONLIGHT MAGIC began due to a mutual love of all things lounge/exotica/bossa nova etc. and are all huge fans of composer/arrangers such as Martin Denny (from whose composition the band takes their name), Les Baxter, Burt Bacharach, Lalo Schifrin & Antonio Carlos Jobim. MOONLIGHT MAGIC plays all their own material, exclusively.
