SLOGAN is out on DVD from Cult Epics!

Serge (Gainsbourg) is a hip and successful film director who leaves his pregnant wife to attend the annual advertising awards festival in Venice, and enters into a passionate affair with a young British woman (Jane Birkin). This sexy satire formed the background for one of the swinging sixties' most famous real-life romances.

During the rehearsals for Pierre Grimblat's "Slogan", Serge Gainsbourg met the woman who would forever change his professional and personal life: Jane Birkin. They sang together for the first time on the film's theme-song, "The Slogan Song". After which, they recorded their version
of "Je t'aime moi non plus". The song became a huge success and set the 70's on fire. Together, they lived out one of the most beautiful love stories ever.

Open your mind to MindDrop

Already topping the IAC Hard Rock Charts and Cashbox Magazine Charts with their singles "Situations" and "Monster", Mind Drop is kicking ass and taking names. Mind Drop has been nominated for a 2008 IAIA Golden Kayak award for "Monster" which is the most prestigious award an unsigned band can acheive.

Comprised of Tim Bourbon (Vocals), Adam Deases (Guitar), Chris Ruzic (Bass) and Robert Bull (Drums), Mind Drop has already completed a three song EP with plans to release another four song EP this May. They can best be described as a mix of Nu Metal beat over the head by Old School Metal, but don't think that means they don't offer their own, unique mix to the hard rock/metal genre.

Mind Drop has shared the stage with bands such as FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, Oblige, OTEP and ANEW REVOLUTION. Be sure to check them out live this Spring and listen to their current single "Situations" and "Monster" at Email for more information.

Sean Costello 1979 - 2008

It is with the deepest sadness that we issue this press release, and the news that Delta Groove recording artist Sean Costello passed away in Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, April 15th, one day before his 29th birthday. Sean was not only a member of the Delta Groove musical family, he was also a friend, and words cannot express the sorrow we feel at having to say goodbye so soon. As blues music fans, we unfortunately grow somewhat accustomed to the sadness of the inevitable passing of musical elders after long and fruitful careers. Losing someone as young, vibrant, and talented as Sean, who had accomplished so much in just a few short years and still had so much potential, is a terribly difficult blow, not only to those who knew him personally, but for the music community as a whole. He had been unanimously praised as one of the main torch-bearers of the blues flame for the coming generations, and now that potential will go sadly unfulfilled.

Costello was born in Philadelphia in 1979, moved with his family to Atlanta at the age of 9, and soon afterward picked up the guitar. Within a few short years he’d won the Memphis Blues Society’s new talent award, and was on the road with his own band. At age 17 he released his first album, “Call The Cops”, acclaimed by Real Blues Magazine as “an explosive debut.” He soon joined forces with fellow blues guitarist Susan Tedeschi, with whom he toured and recorded, laying down tasteful lead guitar work on her Gold-certified Tone-Cool debut “Just Won’t Burn”.

In 2000, Costello released “Cuttin’ In” on Landslide Records, which earned him critical acclaim as well as a prestigious W. C. Handy Award nomination for ‘Best New Artist Debut.’ With 2002’s “Moanin’ For Molasses”, also on Landslide, came a Blues Revue cover story touting Costello as “the top contender to be the next blues star - and soon.” Costello’s hometown paper The Atlanta Journal-Constitution called his guitar playing “masterful” and of “remarkable maturity.” The paper also compared him to such legends as B. B. King, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

In 2005, his self-titled fourth CD “Sean Costello” was released by Artemis Records. Produced by Steve Rosenthal (The Rolling Stones, Suzanne Vega, Freedy Johnston), it was an appealing blend of soul, funk, upbeat rock. He was joined by some very special guests: Levon Helm of The Band sits in on two tracks, as does his daughter, Amy Helm, with her group, Ollabelle. Steve Jordan, Willie Weeks and the Conan O’Brien horn section also appear.

Sean’s Delta Groove debut CD “We Can Get Together”, just released in February, was produced by Costello himself. He was justly proud of “We Can Get Together”, calling it the best work he’d ever done, and the critics agreed, with excellent reviews from radio and press alike lauding it his most impressive and mature work to date.

Costello was fortunate enough to earn the respect and admiration of many of his own idols, and had the opportunity to perform with his mentors. He shared stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, and Bo Diddley among many others. He recently said, “All I’ve ever wanted to do was play the guitar well. I’ve been fortunate to be able to make a living doing it, and I plan to keep it up for the rest of my life.”

Rand Chortkoff and Robert Fitzpatrick, the CEO and President respectively of Delta Groove Music, issued the following joint statement: "Sean Costello was a genius. He was destined to go down in music history as a blues legend. His musical legacy will live on through his music forever. We at Delta Groove Music and all his fans everywhere are devastated by the untimely news of his death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, loved ones and friends and to all of his many fans around the world. He will not be forgotten.

Burning with the fire of great music!


On the cover of Shauna Burns’ critically acclaimed 2005 breakthrough album Every Thought, the dynamic singer, songwriter and pianist looks off into the distance while holding a set of keys in her hand. Those keys were a powerful metaphor for the overall story she told in her songs, about our unconscious minds coming to consciousness and the potential we all have within ourselves to take control of our own destiny. They also unlocked the door to an exhilarating career as one of the most promising multi-talents on today’s indie music scene—a spiritually driven journey that blossoms on her new CD, The Moon and The Fire Circle.

“Around You,” the debut single from The Moon and The Fire Circle debuted on the FMQB AC Chart in the Top 40 (#38) in February and is still climbing the charts at press time. Adding to the good news, the single is also one of the “Most Added” on the FMQB AC chart for a third week in a row and is surrounded by such pop and rock notables as John Mayer, The Eagles and Colbie Caillat. “I’m so grateful that radio listeners are responding to my music,” explains Burns. The singer’s blend of ethereal vocals and sweeping piano and percussion driven atmospheres launched the singles “Pink Girl” and “Petunia” from Every Thought to major success in that format upon its release.

Over the past few years, Burns has enchanted audiences at clubs and Borders Stores across the U.S. and in the U.K. (where she toured early in 2007) with songs from her debut and its follow-up five song EP Desert Tune, which featured songs that overflowed from the first album’s sessions. Her first tour in support of her debut was 40 dates and her most recent jaunt covered 20 dates from coast to coast during the summer and fall of 2007.

A fascinating and richly detailed journey from the light to the dark and back to the light again, The Moon and the Fire Circle finds Burns taking us with her as we travel deep into the underworld of different points of view. “The twist in the story is who is telling us which is light and which is dark?” she says.

Welcome (back) to the (Soft) Machine!

Soft Machine's new release, "Steam", combines collective freely improvised jams with new writing from Hopper, Etheridge and Travis. Gone are the keyboards that so defined 1970s Soft Machine. In their place are modernistic sampling/looping and sonic processing, creating expansive soundscapes not possible during Soft Machine heyday. Between Etheridge broad sonics, Hopper's legendary bass loops and "fuzztonics" and Travis system of ambitronics - allowing him to sample his saxophones and flutes in real time and naturally layer unpredictable harmonies - Soft Machine (Legacy) often sounds larger than a quartet.

Powerful rock rhythms, funky progressive jazz-rock grooves and abstract interaction are interspersed with muscular soloing and dense textures. A modern look at Chloe & The Pirates from 1973 "Six" is brought into the 21st Century, anchored by Etheridge loops and the light but insistent groove of Hopper and Marshall. The group is driven by a tradition of experimentation and unfettered improvisational abandon that remains purposeful, hard-edged and exciting.

The limitless possibilities of the band forward-reaching innovations will not only appeal to fans of 1970s Soft Machine, but to anyone who likes their fusion wide open, their jams loose and totally spontaneous, and their jazz combined with potent grooves and fiery energy.

Two great prog rock classics from MoonJune Records

Compelling Indonesian electro-acoustic progressive jazz-fusion with a distinctive cultural bent. For its first international release Jakarta-based simakDialog delivers Patahan, a live recording that suggests how Pat Metheny might sound were he from the Far East rather than the United States.

A combination of electric and acoustic instruments, the 14 year-old group is innovatively propelled by two percussionists rather than a conventional drummer, but the result is no less powerful. Keyboardist/composer Riza Arshad, guitarist Tohpati and bassist Adhhitya join vocalist Nyak Ina Raseuki and percussionists Endang Ramdam and Emy Tata for five lengthy, episodic and finely detailed compositions that create a unique nexus of jazz and less-traveled ethnicity.

Expansive solos, rich harmonies, telling interplay and propulsive rhythms make Patahan a genre-busting album that demands to be heard.

First two DFA’s critically acclaimed cult albums “Lavori In Corso” (1996) and “Duty Free Area” (1999) remastered and including 3 live bonus tracks.

With two critically-acclaimed albums - now reissued as one double-CD package with bonus live material - under their belts, DFA have proven themselves one of Italy's leading lights in the new generation of progressive rock bands that appeared in the wake of the genre's 1990s revival. With fifteen years of experience and live appearances across the globe, they are now ready to confirm their status with their highly anticipated third studio effort.

Formed in Verona during 1991 around Alberto De Grandis, drummer, occasional vocalist and main composer, and bassist Luca Baldassari, DFA was initially an instrumental keyboard-led trio, a formula that evolved over the years, first with the arrival of guitarist Silvio Minella in 1993, and two years later with the introduction of vocal parts in the compositions, following the release of a demo tape entitled Trip On Metro.

Later in 1995, Alberto Bonomi replaced the original keyboard player and DFA found its definitive shape. Bonomi was soon to become an essential creative force in the band alongside De Grandis, co-writing most of the material with him. The new quartet made its live debut in January 1996, and soon afterwards embarked on the recording of their first proper album.

Alberto Piras, the frontman of fellow Italian proggers Deus Ex Machina, had heard the demo tape, and offered to produce the album for his own label, Scolopendra. By 1996 Lavori In Corso ("works in progress") was ready, and was soon greeted by many favourable reviews. A staff writer for the respected US new music publication Exposé called the album "an absolute masterpiece of complex progressive rock". The high level of musicianship and the attention to detail in the compositions and arrangements - which drew comparisons with luminaries such as Gentle Giant, National Health, Gong, Banco or Weather Report - helped to make Lavori In Corso a natural candidate for a lot of "Best Of '97" lists among fans of the genre.

During the following months, DFA's profile as a live band increased, supporting the likes of Italian veterans Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso and Le Orme. Meanwhile, work started on new material, and by June 1999 the quartet was finally back in the studio to record the eagerly-awaited follow-up to Lavori In Corso, which saw the light of day the following October on Italian Mellow Records - its title, Duty Free Area, finally revealing what the three letters stood for. "We liked the idea of an area free from all constraints", explained Bonomi, "where we can play what we feel".

With their second work, DFA broadened their musical palette with new sounds, especially in the keyboard department (occasionally bringing to mind Ozric Tentacles), and further perfected their craftmanship, both as composers and players. Critics unanimously acclaimed Duty Free Area as a major progression from the already excellent Lavori In Corso, particularly in terms of melodic accessibility and overall coherence of the often fiendishly complex epic compositions masterminded by De Grandis and Bonomi.

Another significant improvement on Lavori In Corso was to be found in the vocals, arguably not DFA's forte. A larger percentage of the music was instrumental (showcasing the breathtaking interplay between Minella's guitar and Bonomi's keyboards), the one track sung by De Grandis (with backing by Bonomi) was ideally suited to his range, and the other two pieces with vocals used guests - Alberto Piras and female singer Giorgia Gallo. All in all, Duty Free Area could be called a success in all departments : little could be improved upon.

DFA's watershed appearance at NEARfest in June 2000 was documented on a best-selling live CD, brining together the best of both albums and proving that the band was able to "pull it off" on stage like the best of them ! Invitations to other foreign festivals and venues duly followed, in France, Mexico, Belgium and Italy. Meanwhile, DFA started work on their next album, aiming at breaking away from existing musical categories (such as progrock, jazz-rock, etc.) and further establishing the unique DFA identity. This long process is now over, and the band is about to start recording with a view to releasing the album in January 2007, following it up with festival appearances and concerts worldwide.

The Return of Arti&Mestieri

Outstanding 7-piece progressive jazz-rock band from Italy. All the power delivered by the spectacular insane drumming of Furio Chirico (often compared to Billy Cobham) and magnificent analog keyboards of maestro Beppe Crovella (Mellotron, Hammond, Mini Moog, Fender Rhodes, acoustic piano), counter-pointed by the beautiful violin passages, killer sax lines, wonderful guitar work, robust bass and challenging vocals.

Captured live in Kawasaki/Tokyo, during the Japan tour in June of 2005, this 76 minutes album includes most of the material from their two legendary cult albums “Tilt” (1974) and “Giro Di Valzer Per Domani” (1975) with few newer compositions. In the vein and league of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever, Mothers Of Invention, mid ‘70s Soft Machine, King Crimson and Gong.

Celebrating the 33rd anniversary of its inception in 2007 with a new album, a DVD, a tour and a special concert with guests, arti & mestieri has long been hailed as one of the truly essential Italian progressive rock bands. With its high-calibre musicianship and unique mixture of rock, classical and jazz elements, angular harmonies and unexpected rhythmic figures, its music stands as a timeless example of the best one can expect from the meeting of prog rock and jazz fusion.

arti & mestieri came into being in Turin, late 1973, when keyboardist Beppe Crovella (from The Mystics) and drummer Furio Chirico (from The Trip) got together with bassist Marco Gallesi (from Il Sogno Di Archimede), guitarist Gigi Venegoni, violinist Giovanni Vigilar and sax/vibist Arturo Vitale. At first calling themselves just Arti, they immediately attracted interest from Gianni Sassi, manager of the Cramps label, and Franco Mamone, PFM's manager, with their debut performance at the Festival Del Proletariato Giovanile in Parco Lambro (the Italian Woodstock !) in June 1974, which left both the critics and 45,000-strong audience breathless.

The next couple of years were like a whirlwind - they quickly recorded their first, largely instrumental, album, Tilt, in Rome, and promoted it with relentless touring, supporting the likes of PFM and Gentle Giant in sold-out theatres all around the country. In 1975, they again appeared at Parco Lambro and, with the addition of singer Gianfranco Gaza, recorded their second album Giro Di Valzer Per Domani. This was followed by extensive touring with labelmates Area and - sadly unfruitful - contacts with ELP's Manticore label.

By 1976, this heavy schedule had taken its toll and arti & mestieri entered a turbulence zone. This first manifested itself (after recording one last track together, "Necropoli") with the departures of Marco Gallesi and Gigi Venegoni (who went on to form his own group, Venegoni & Co). Without a guitarist, but with new bassist Gigi Fregapane, they toured Southern Italy, and started work on their third album, but it remained unfinished as the band collapsed for good. Beppe Crovella formed Mock-Ups, in a similar fusion/prog vein, while Furio Chirico joined forces with Gallesi in a new band, recording the album Quinto Stato which, following record company pressures, was released under the name arti & mestieri although this wasn't their initial intention. Chirico went on to front other arti & mestieri line-ups into the 1980s, with no other original members but with young up-and-coming jazz musicians, including trumpeter Flavio Boltro (now an international jazz star), recording two further albums, Acquario and Children's Corner.

Renewed interest in the band following CD reissues of their 1970s albums (there have so far been six reprints !) led to a reformation of arti & mestieri in 1999 with five of the six original members - Beppe Crovella on keyboards, Furio Chirico on drums, Gigi Venegoni on guitar, Marco Gallesi on bass and Arturo Vitale on sax, with Marco Cimino (who had played on Quinto Stato) on second keyboards 'replacing' Giovanni Vigliar (singer Gianfranco Gaza died in 1986). Vitale left after the first few gigs and was replaced by violinist Corrado Trabuio, and the resulting line-up recorded the 'comeback' album Murales, which stood stylistically somewhere between their classic sound and modern fusion.

The reunion concerts were documented on one half of the double-CD Live 1974/2000 which also included a vintage concert from their peak years. Since then there have been several personnel changes, which saw Crovella and Chirico remain at the helm with newcomers. The current line-up consists of Roberto Cassetta on bass, Marco Roagna on guitar, Alfredo Ponissi on sax/flute, Iano Nicolo on vocals and teen-age prodigy Lautaro Acosta on violin, and the band's sound and approach has moved closer to the classic arti & mestieri 1970s style. To mark their first-ever US appearance, at ProgDay festival in 2003, they released a mini-CD of the same name, followed in 2004 by a memorable performance at the Baja Prog festival in Mexico.

In 2005, a new CD, Estrazioni, was published. It is a mixture of new versions of old tunes along with new compositions. This was celebrated with a repeat appearance at Baja Prog and the band's first-ever Japanese dates in June 2005. Later that year they took part in two major Italian festivals, Sesto and 70s Flowers, the latter being filmed for a possible DVD release. In parallel with their arti & mestieri activities, Crovella, Chirico and Cassetta have also performed in Japan in 2006 as a power trio under the monicker C3. Now they are busy conceiving and recording the band's new album, which is expected for release in late 2007.
