Breaking Records presents BUGGIRL to American Audiences!

buggirl_promo-745121One look at the tour schedule of Buggirl will show you exactly how hard working these guys are. Jumping on a plane from their Australian home in May 2007, the duo headed for UK and Europe, and spent the next eight months touring. They headed back for a few shows on home soil and then did it all again in 2008. Throughout their European travels they have toured alongside The Damned, The Germs, Mad Sin, Danko Jones and Brant Bjork. Buggirl have earned the praise of the media in that part of the world, particularly the UK. Media highlights include a great appearance on Total Rock Radio with Malcolm Dome, and in November featuring on the cover mount CD of giant British music magazine Classic Rock alongside The Donnas, Airbourne and The Datsuns.

Formed by siblings Amber(guitars/vocals) and Clinno(drums/vocals) Spence in 2003, the band first grabbed some attention in Australia with their debut release ‘Looming Shadows’. They then followed up with ‘Rock n’ Roll Hell’, before touring 2007-2009.

A quick break gave them a chance to write and record a brand new new five track ep, ‘Blood, Sweat & Beers’. Recorded in Sydney by Mark Opitz (the man behind some of the greatest albums by Australian rock legends AC/DC, The Divinyls and Rose Tattoo), the disc captures the band in their energetic and raw live form.

Buggirl take ‘Blood, Sweat & Beers’ across USA for the first time, touring between March and June 2010. The duo will be back in September for some more touring action!

Breaking Records is proud to present Buggirl to American audiences!

Demolition String Band releases new album!

August 17, 2007 at 5:57 am

“Different Kinds Of Love”

Featuring “Letters,” a tale of internet unfaithfulness, the haunting “Loneliness (Is a kind of forgetting)” co-written with Robert Burke Warren (Roseanne Cash), an overworked mother singing to her only child in “Real Good Mama”, the rockin’ “Your Wish,” the folk-rockin’ “Wisteria” and the straight up twang-boogie of “I Wanna Wear White.”

The fourth album by this veteran New Jersey band, a mix of bluegrass-informed roots-country, is a heart tugger of failed relationships, wandering love, and dead-end lives. Elena Sky’s raw, earthy vocals and Boo Reiners’ slinging telecaster dance and hop above the driving rhythm section. Different Kinds of Love, produced by Skye and Reiners, shows a band that has grown as musicians and creators, but have stayed true to their unrefined, emotional sound.
— Miles of Music
“The Demolition String Band has ventured from punkish to acoustic stringband updatings of the songs of Ola Belle Reed. Their latest is proof that a band this edgy and adventurous can just keep getting tighter and crisper performing together over time. Different Kinds of Love features the strong points they’ve shown for years, Elena Skye’s sharp songwriting and Boo Reiner’s immaculate picking for instance, and powers them up with new rockabilly-tinged thrust.”
-Barry Mazor (No Depression Magazine, Wall Street Journal)
