Berlin : This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the provocative single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill. Berlin's first full-length LP was the gold Love Life in 1984. In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single "Take My Breath Away," the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun. Nunn left for a solo career in 1987, and Crawford and Brill teamed up in the Big F. In 1999, the band reunited to record some new studio material and also performed a concert, which, along with the new songs, was released as 2000's Berlin Live: Sacred and Profane. This was followed a year later by a flurry of recording sessions that included co-writing tracks with Billy Corgan, among others. The end result, Voyeur, was their first full-length studio release in over 15 years.
Honey and The Heroine: Honey and the Heroine is a New Wave Rock band spawned from the underground counter-culture of Orange, California and is instantly gaining recognition for its distinctive voice and infectious energy. Ren (apprentice of DEVO’s Mark Mothersbaugh) has a cooly-lit voice that seeps confidence as her melodies weave through the songs with almost jazz-like phrasing. Pete Fielis’ signature guitar-work has a musicality that sings along seemingly without effort, yet it’s emotionally urgent and real. Fielis and bassist Lee Norton have shared the stage together in other local bands and have formed a perfect music chemistry that they bring to H&TH. H&TH’s rhythm section hurls the listener forward with a controlled energy and creativity; the newest addition to H&TH, drummer Chuy Vidales (The Natural Thrill) jumps the band into a higher energy ring with his methodical rhythms. Norton’s bass lines often play alongside Ren’s vocal and synth counter-melodies giving them a distinctive sound. Their sound is reminiscent of the past without being derivative. Each song stands out on it’s own, but relates to the band’s signature vision of being the Next Wave. As writer Carlos Fuentes astutely noted, “There is no creation without tradition.” For Honey and the Heroine they have grown up being influenced by the varied forces of the SoCal music scene and assembled them in a way that gives a nod and a wink to their predecessors. Honey and the Heroine recently released their full-length debut album (Fall 2013) mixed by Jerry Andrews of ZonaSound and accompanying video by director Adam Miller, for their single “Alright.” Musical influences include: Metric, QOTSA, DEVO and Garbage.
