Artist Biography by

The New York City noise-rock band Dustdevils was led by British expatriate Michael Duane, who formed the group during the mid-1980s with Australian-born singer/bassist Jaqi Dulany. Originally based in Leeds, England, Dustdevils issued a handful of records on the Rouska label before hopping the Atlantic, where they recruited bassist Mark Ibold and drummer Reed in time to record 1989's "Is Big Leggy" single for TeenBeat. The full-length Geek Drip followed that same year, and in 1990 the group issued Struggling Electric & Chemical. Ibold soon joined Pavement

SPLENDER Halfway Down the Sky 1999

Artist Biography by

Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Waymon Boone and bassist James Cruz formed the alternative pop/rock quartet Splender in 1990. The New York-based group went through various incarnations, eventually choosing drummer Marc Slutsky and lead guitarist Jonathan Svec to round out the band. The fledgling group embarked on an extensive European festival tour opening for such nu-metal titans as Korn, as well as playing various gigs around New York City. Bandleader Waymon Boone was the son of a professional R&B/disco singer and often accompanied his mother on the road. While traveling with her, he witnessed first-hand the hardships that go along with being a musician. This did not deter him or the band as they were finally rewarded with a recording contract from Columbia Records after they were awarded best band at a contest. Their years of hard work paid off when they teamed with respected musician/producer Todd Rundgren on their 1999 debut album Halfway Down the Sky. The album spawned two minor crossover hits in "Yeah, Whatever" and "I Think God Can Explain." Despite the success, the album did not live up to expectations. In 2001, the band signed with legendary music mogul Clive Davis' J Records. A year later, To Whom It May Concern was released.

Artist Biography by


Comin' Through
The melodic alterna-pop band the Hang Ups came together in 1990, while the band members were attending the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Consisting of Brian Tighe (vocals, guitar), Jeff Kearns (bass, vocals), Stephen Ittner (drums), and John Crozier (guitar), the band began playing the Minneapolis club/bar circuit. However, drummer Ittner was unable to commit to long-term touring, which all but extinguished the band's hopes of hitting it big with the original lineup. Ittner remained with the group as a songwriter and studio drummer, as the band released both their debut EP Comin' Through and full-length He's After Me in 1993 (band friend Bryan Hanna fills the drum slot for touring). The band gained a dedicated fan in Soul Asylum's Dave Pirner, who compiled the soundtrack to the film Chasing Amy and picked an old favorite from their 1993 debut ("Jump Start") for an important scene in the movie. It took the band a long three years to follow-up their debut with sophomore effort So We Go, but thanks to the film, the timing couldn't have been better. The track led to greater interest in the band, as a remixed version was quickly added to second pressings of So We Go. Second Story -- notable as the first pairing of producers Don Dixon and Mitch Easter since R.E.M.'s classic Reckoning 15 years earlier -- followed in 1999.
