CAPITAL DISTRACTION presents...
RED DONS (Portland/Chicago) http://www.myspace.com/red
RED DONS features Douglas Burns who was the front man of the incredible Portland punk band THE OBSERVERS. After their demise he teamed up with members of CLOROX GIRLS and others to form RED DONS who continued the trajectory of The Observers. Dark and mysterious with catchy hooks and captivating vocals. They have released a 7" and lp and their new 7" and lp just came out on DERANGED & TAKEN BY SURPRISE records. They are constantly touring and their live show is definitely one the best I've ever seen. Exciting and inspiring. Current line up features members of THE OBSERVERS, CLOROX GIRLS, BORN/DEAD, etc.
CRUSADES (Ottawa) http://www.myspace.com/sca
This is the 7" release show for CRUSADES. This is their second show. "CRUSADES is based on a primary concern: creating a new vehicle for old ideas - most importantly a vehicle decidedly more accessible than those typically employed for these ideas. Drawing from philosophies espoused by such visionaries as Integrity, Gorgoroth, LaVey, Pale Creation, Ulver, DeGrimston, Emperor, etc., Crusades is something of an aural wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will." Features members of THE CREEPS, THE VISITORS, SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, PREGNANCY SCARES, YEAR ZERO, etc.
URANIUM COMEBACK (Ottawa) http://www.myspace.com/ura
URANIUM COMEBACK play less than a handful of shows a year. It's been 2 years since they've formed and I can count the shows they've played on my hands. Perfectly-crafted intense power punk from a group of guys who have been doing it for years. Expect a record on GOING GAGA in the future which will make flip out and wish that this band played more than 3 times a year. Features members of MILLION DOLLAR MARXISTS, BIG DICK, SEDATIVES, BEACH BLANKETS, HOLY COBRAS, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, YEAR ZERO, etc.
