    Biography

    The Del Fuegos were a 1980s garage rock band from Boston that formed in 1980 by brothers Dan Zanes (guitar, vocals) and Warren Zanes (guitars). The band gained a level of success in 1986 on their songs “Don’t Run Wild” which hit #46 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart and “I Still Want You,” which peaked at #33 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart and #87 on the US Hot 100; both appearing in widely seen beer commercials. Tom Petty was a fan of the Del Fuegos and appeared on one of the band’s songs and even featured them as an opening act on one of his tours. The relationship between Dan and Warren has always been contentious and after the band was dropped by Slash due to commercial failure of their third album, “Stand Up,” Warren and Woody Giessmann (drums) left the band. Dan and bassist Tom Lloyd recruited two replacement members and released a fourth album, “Smoking In The Fields,” on RCA. The Del Fuegos broke up within a year of the album’s release. In 2011, the band played together for the first time in over 20 years at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston to raise money for a rehab program run by Woody. They later embarked on a reunion tour in 2012. Later that year, the reunited band recorded 8 new songs, releasing them as an EP titled Silver Star. Dan Zanes released a solo album in 1995 and then began recording children’s music with his band, Dan Zane’s and Friends. The band became very popular due to heavy airplay on Playhouse Disney (now Disney Junior) and the band eventually won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Album for Children. Warren left after the band’s third album and went on to become VP of Education at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Longest Day, the band’s debut album on Slash Records was originally released in 1984 and mixes heartland garage rock with dixie-fried rockabilly and roots-conscious rock n’ roll. It has been out of print on vinyl since original release in the 1980s.

    Biography:

    Josh Rouse is an American indie folk/pop singer-songwriter from Oshkosh, Nebraska. He began his recording career in Nashville in 1998. Josh began writing songs at the age of 18 and following a nomadic childhood which included a lot of moves, he eventually settled in Nashville where he met local musicians and began recording. The initial recordings he put onto an 8-track recorder in his living room eventually became his debut album, “Dressed Up Like Nebraska,” which was released in 1998 on the Rykodisc sub-label, Slow River. Co-produced by former Cowboy Junkies member David Henry, who also played bass and cello, the album received critical acclaim from music writers/critics. Billboard wrote that it was “a dark horse gem”, and “as pure and unpretentious as any singer/songwriter album issued this year.” Glen Sarvady in his CMJ New Music Monthly review at the time stated, “Rouse is a songwriter with potential, and much of it is already realized on this debut disc.” Glen’s fellow CMJ writer Jonathan Perry called the album “a strikingly poised debut brimming with graceful, evocative songs about regret and desire.” It received a four-star review from Allmusic, with James Chrispell describing it as “one of those classic discs one hears about, but seldom hears.” Billboard described it as “a dark-horse gem….one beguiling record.” The album received three and half stars for performance and three stars for sonics from Stereophile Magazine. Josh went on to record 5 more albums for Slow River/Rykodisc before moving on to Bedroom Classics/Yep Roc. If voted to win, ROG will issue “Dressed Up Like Nebraska” for the first time on vinyl worldwide and expand it to a 2LP set that includes 4 bonus tracks.

    Biography

    Sparks is a rock/pop band formed in Los Angeles in 1972 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals). The duo originally formed in 1968 under the name Halfnelson having developed an early taste for The Who, Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd, The Kinks and the Move which all led to them describing themselves as Anglophiles. They came to the attention of Todd Rundgren, at whose urging Albert Grossman signed the band to his Bearsville label. Their debut produced by Rundgrean sold poorly but after switching to Warner Bros. and renaming themselves Sparks, a play on the Marx Brothers, the debut was reissued and spawned the minor hit song “Wonder Girl.” Their follow up album, “A Woofer In Tweeter’s Clothing,” led to a tour of the UK including a residency at the Marquee Club. The club appearances helped them secure their cult following. Known for their quirky songwriting, their music is often accompanied by sophisticated and acerbic lyrics, a theatrical stage show, typified in contrast between Russell’s animated front man antics and Ron’s deadpan scowling. They also became known for Russell’s distinctive voice and Ron’s rhythmic keyboard style. They have enjoyed a cult following in the U.S. while achieving chart success abroad. During the late 1970s the band reinvented themselves as a new wave/synth pop band, abandoning the traditional rock band line-up that they launched with. Their changing styles and visual presentations have kept them at the forefront of modern, artfully-crafted pop music. They are best known for the songs “This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us,” which reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart in 1974; the disco hit “The Number One Song in Heaven” in 1979; “When I’m With You” which topped the French Singles Chart in 1980; the single “I Predict”, which provided Sparks’ first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 60 in 1982; the 1983 single “Cool Places,” with the Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin, and “When Do I Get To Sing My Way” which topped the German and Euro charts in 1994/95 and was the top airplay record in Germany in 1994.
