Terri Nunn & Berlin: A multi-platinum recording artist and mom, Terri started her career as an actress but turned into a music icon. She joined Berlin in 1979 and when Berlin's suggestive single "Sex (I'm A...)" debuted on radio stations in 1982, Nunn's blunt, X-rated dialogue provided a raunchy alternative to the frigid, robotic singing of many synth pop artists, most of whom were men. The critics were outraged, but Nunn's looks and amazing vocal range helped Berlin create a cult following on MTV, especially with the music videos for "The Metro" and "No More Words." “Although we didn’t realize it at the time,” Terri recalls, “Berlin’s sound was part of the start of modern electronic music in America. That sound has morphed into industrial, trance, electroclash and dance today. Bands like Interpol, Fisherspooner and Goldfrapp are direct descendents of what we were doing in the ‘80s.”In 1986, Berlin topped pop radio around the world with "Take My Breath Away" from the Top Gun soundtrack. The song won the Academy Award and Golden Globe award for Best Song in 1987. During a lengthy hiatus from Berlin to “get a life,” Terri collaborated with other artists such as Andrew Eldritch for The Sisters of Mercy UK hit “Under The Gun” and appeared in the Jane’s Addiction film “Gift.” Nunn recruited new musicians to resurrect Berlin in the late '90s. In 2000, they released Berlin Live: Sacred and Profane, in 2003, the new studio album, Voyeur, and in 2005 came 4play. In 2009, Berlin released a live comprehensive DVD/CD package entitled All The Way In and now Terri’s currently in studio writing and recording her 12th album with a team that includes producer/writer John King from The Dust Brothers (Beck, The Beastie Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Fight Club). You can find Terri Nunn on Facebook and Twitter.
Spare Parts For Broken Hearts: Spare Parts for Broken Hearts gives hard rockers and girl group lovers alike reason to swoon. The trio blends their love of grunge and experimental modern rock that gives a nod to their influences Muse, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and Nirvana. Sarah Green and Laurita Guaico pour their deadly harmonic melodies and dark lyrics over the heart thumping and mesmerizing rhythms of unrivaled drummer, Tosha Jones. Green and Guaico alternate bass and guitar and often team up for the groups’ catchy combo of vocal layers. Though SP4BH formed in early 2010, the members combine more than a decade of repping the local scene. Well known players of the SoCal grrrl territory, and as self-proclaimed road dogs, Guaico and Green first teamed up in Orange County's favorite 90s grunge girl group Relish. Guaico and Jones later toured the country in the all-girl band The Randies. All three girls are veterans of The Vans Warped tour and even prior to a full-length release; the band is frequently packing rooms across southern California. In early 2011, SP4BH released their first EP. In early 2012 they played a few dates at SXSW and will continue to tour through the end of summer, returning to be back in studio for their second release.
Queen Caveat: Beware of the Queen, the mean and in between. Hail the rebel who lives in a dream. Her rules threaten us, muting our muse. But today we will fight, today she will rue. Unsilence your mouths to shout what you love. Cherish the crime, that you're apart of. We hares have a message to her majesty. Imposing granduer with too tight of seems. Hold tight to your rules, and tight to your crown. Our wrath is so loud, you won't hear a sound.
