Night Marchers
Night Marchers
The Night Marchers are an alternative rock band formed in 2007 in San Diego, California. The band is composed of singer/guitarist John Reis, guitarist Gar Wood, bassist Tommy Kitsos, and drummer Jason Kourkounis. Reis, Wood, and Kourkounis had previously performed together in the Hot Snakes, while Kitsos previously performed with CPC Gangbangs. The Night Marchers' debut album See You in Magic was released in 2008 through Vagrant Records.

'Too Tough To Live' finds Dan Sartain operating at the opposite end of his range, with this album becoming a tribute to when punk was real, MAAAAAAN!!!!! 13 tracks delivered in less than 20 minutes; an average rate of a new tune every 1 minute, 30 seconds.

Recorded at Lucky Cat, San Francisco, 'Too Tough To Live' finds Sartain running fresh out of patience with a whole itinerary of hassles - department stores, death, the unseeing eye, the all-seeing eye, heaven, hell, Vietnam, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays - and YOU!

The (UK only) single taken from the album, 'Now Now Now', features Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's as guest-star - the two met at a brain trust of sorts in San Francisco, known as a Star Track™ convention. After some begging and namedropping from Sartain, Wiedlin was convinced, and the two achieve a forced human interaction paralleled by none!

A rock n roll troubadour, Dan Sartain has been an important part of the American and European music scene for over ten years. He self-released two albums: 'Crimson Guard' (2001) and 'Romance In Stereo' (2002) before he hit 21. After joining the awesome Swami Records, he released three stellar albums: 'Dan Sartain vs The Serpientes' (2005), 'Join Dan Sartain' (2006) and 'Dan Sartain Lives' (2010). Swami chief John Reis (also founding member of Rocket From The Crypt/Hot Snakes/ The Night Marchers): "as if Jonathan Richman wanted to be Hank Williams instead of Lou Reed, or if the Voidoids were fronted by Hasil Adkins" … "This is the future and the past of the tradition of great voices that have bubbled up from the underground well of rebel thought."

Dan Sartain continues to challenge the humdrum nature of the current music 'scene' – check for yourself. A full US tour is in the works (details forthcoming). 'Too Tough To Live' is released on May 22nd through One Little Indian.
Mrs. Magician
Mrs. Magician
Mrs. Magician hails from the pilings of various San Diego piers. Like those pilings, their sound is encrusted with salty hooks drenched in waves of reverb and barnacled, fuzz. These pop songs are massive and betray the beach shack bummer of the summer posture that these hoodad's exude.

"Strange Heaven" is the band's debut album and magnifies the cacophonous lullabies of the their four previous singles. This record is for connoisseur's of fuzz, distortion, echo and reverb who prefer their noise to be tempered liberally with minor key, bubblegum and (at times)haunting melody. Recorded and produced by John Reis (of Hot Snakes, RFTC, Night Marchers, Drive Like Jehu) in the same way of the old masters in order to achieve a more musical hiss and crackle. The result is a timely and hopefully timeless artifact.
