{"key":"8227","name":"We Are Scientists","bio":"We Are Scientists is an American indie rock band featuring Keith Murray (guitar and lead vocals), Chris Cain (bass guitar and backing vocals), Max Hart (keys and guitar) and Andy Burrows (drums). Co-founder Michael Tapper (drums and backing vocals) left the band in 2007 and is currently a member of the bands Bishop Allen and Fool's Gold. They formed in 2000 in Claremont, California, United States.Their name was inspired by an awkward conversation with a U-Haul employee who was inspecting a van that the band had rented. The U-haul employee, attempting to make polite conversation, asked the three bespectacled band members if they were brothers. They said no. He asked if they were scientists, as they looked like they could be the kind of people who wear lab coats. They told him that they were musicians, not scientists. To this day, they regret telling the truth. They are not named after the Cap'n Jazz song which bears the name.They are a franchise of Art Rock band, Art Brut. In fact, they are Art Brut 47.The band formed while its members attended the Claremont Colleges. Murray and Cain attended Pomona College; Michael Tapper attended Harvey Mudd College.The band has released three self-made EPs (Bitching!, Safety, Fun, and Learning (In That Order) and In Action). Their debut LP, With Love And Squalor was on Virgin Records, the first three singles of which were \"Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt\", \"The Great Escape\" and \"It's A Hit\". The album takes its name from the J.D. Salinger short story \"For Esme - With Love and Squalor\". They have since released LP Crap Attack, which is a collection of B-Sides, covers and other rarities, and their full follow-up album, Brain Thrust Mastery which debuted in the UK on March 17,2008 reached number 11 at the UK Album charts.On the 1st November 2007, NME reported that Michael Tapper has left We Are Scientists under amicable circumstances, and on September 18, 2007, the band announced on their website that Max Hart, a keyboardist and guitarist who has played live with them before, has joined the band temporarily. As they put it: \"There's no easy answer as to how long Max will stick around. Maybe we'll grow to hate his sanctimonious ways, which for now tickle us so. Maybe he'll grow to hate our open-minded, funny, refreshing, handsome ways, thus achieving what psychologists and bookies long ago labeled impossible.\"And to make things even more exciting for the band, We Are Scientists is featured in the soundtrack of the 2008 film Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, which Bishop Allen - at the time featuring former We Are Scientists drummer Michael Tapper - appears in a cameo.According to Keith Murray's Wikipedia he was nominated for World's Sexiest Vegetarian 2007 and is predicted that he will be the new face of Louis Vuitton's spring\/summer '09 collection. The Band's 3rd effort, Barbara, was released in June of 2010 and features ex-Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8227_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

The band is comprised of Justin Warfield (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Adam Bravin (bass, keyboards). Accompaniment members Thomas Froggatt (guitar) and Scott Ellis (drums) join them on stage. The band have released three albums: \"She Wants Revenge\" (2006), \"This is Forever\" (2007) and \"Valleyheart\" (2011)She Wants Revenge's music is hard to emcompass into a single genre or sound. It draws inspiration from several alternative rock and new wave artists. The band blends their influences with ever-present electronics (eg. synths and drum machines) in a style most accurately labeled under the umbrella term, \"darkwave\", a style of music reminiscent of the New Wave and Gothic Rock sounds of the 1980s.She Wants Revenge have stated that they make \"dance music\" on numerous occasions setting them aside from the contemporary rock bands often falsely linked with the band in the music press.HistoryTheir self-titled debut, was released in 2006. They contributed a cover of 'Kindnap the Sandy Claws' to the soundtrack of the \"The Nightmare Before Christmas\" re-release. Their next LP release, 'This Is Forever' was released in 2007. They also were featured on a track 'Time', with Timbaland.On Feb. 27th, 2008, She Wants Revenge parted ways with Geffen\/Interscope to run their own record label called Perfect Kiss Records, from which they released an EP titled 'Save Your Soul'. A second EP followed in 2009, titled \"Up and Down\", which was released on the 22nd of September.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8219_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"8263","name":"Base Ball Bear","bio":"Base Ball Bear (\u30d9\u30fc\u30b9\u30dc\u30fc\u30eb\u30d9\u30a2\u30fc) is a Japanese rock band from Tokyo that formally began in 2002, although the members assembled in the autumn of 2001. The band, which was initially named Planet, was formed for a one-time performance at a high school culture festival, but they decided to continue playing due to how well they were received at the festival and how much fun they were having. Base Ball Bear made its major debut in early 2006 with EMI Music Japan. Their style influences include Japanese indie rock bands Number Girl and Supercar, and British rock bands such as Oasis. The band has been noted for the \"nostalgic\" feel of band leader Y\u016bsuke Koide's lyrics, often about teenage life and memories. They are also known for their contributions to the soundtrack of the movie Linda Linda Linda (in which female bassist Shiori Sekine had a leading role) and performing the themes to the anime series Toshokan Sens\u014d, \u014ckiku Furikabutte and Gintama.The band's former name, Planet, most likely came from a Supercar song of the same name. Their current name also derives partially from a song name. Koide thought of Japanese singer Chocolat's song \"Base Ball and Elvis Presley\", and suggested the name \"Base Ball\". Guitarist Yuasa thought it would be better if they added one more word to it, and the rest of the band agreed. They eventually settled on the word \"bear\".MembersY\u016bsuke Koide (\u5c0f\u51fa \u7950\u4ecb, Koide Y\u016bsuke, born December 9, 1984 in Tokyo) - Vocalist & guitarist, primary songwriter and the leader of the band. He likes movies, music, and reading. He likes old school hip hop and his favorite artists include XTC, Happy End and Perfume. He is also a fan of drama actress and idol Meguru Ishii.Sh\u014dhei Yuasa (\u6e6f\u6d45 \u5c06\u5e73, Yuasa Sh\u014dhei, born April 16, 1984 in Chiba Prefecture) - Guitarist and unofficial dancer. Sh\u014dhei was on the swim team when he was in high school and worked as a lifeguard before the band became famous. He occasionally does yoga. He likes drinking and eating. His favorite artists are Thee Michelle Gun Elephant and Sly & the Family Stone.Shiori Sekine (\u95a2\u6839 \u53f2\u7e54, Sekine Shiori, born December 8, 1985 in Saitama Prefecture) - Bass guitarist and chorus. Shiori is the only female member of Base Ball Bear and had no experience playing bass guitar before joining the band. Shiori had a leading role as Nozomi in the movie Linda Linda Linda. She is a fan of Ultraman and likes cooking (especially desserts). She also likes manga and is a fan of Namie Odama. Her favorite artists include Jethro Tull, Caravan, Keiichi Suzuki, Yui and GO!GO!7188.Daisuke Horinouchi (\u5800\u4e4b\u5185 \u5927\u4ecb, Horinouchi Daisuke, born January 17, 1985 in Tokyo) - Drummer and chorus. He has a younger sister. His favorite hobbies are lifting weights and watching pro wrestling and soccer. His favorite artists are The Police, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciante, and Nile Rodgers.HistoryKoide originally gathered the band members in 2001, with the purpose of performing at their high school's fall festival. The band's name at the time was \"Planet\" and they played covers of songs by the band Supercar. Afterwards, all of the band members decided to continue with the band as a hobby.In April 2002, the band began sending demo tapes to record labels and were advised by Toshiba EMI to change their name, eventually choosing \"Base Ball Bear,\" the name under which they performed their first gig at Shimokitazawa Garage that July. Throughout the rest of the year, they continued playing in the Shibuya and Shimokitazawa areas of Tokyo as their fan base began to grow.In November 2003, Base Ball Bear signed with Blitz Pia Records, an indies label. They immediately release their first mini-album Y\u016bgata Generation on November 26. The band released their first single, Yume is Vision, in April of the following year. It was the first of the band's songs to be accompanied by a music video and they colloborated with Y\u016bki, a Japanese fashion magazine model and Base Ball Bear fan, to create it. The band spent the rest of 2004 practicing and writing new songs, some of where were featured on compilation CDs.The band released their first full-length album, High Color Times, on March 16, 2005, and started playing concerts to sold-out crowds in larger venues. Also, Shiori Sekine was cast in one of the lead roles in the film Linda Linda Linda, which features some of the band's music.Base Ball Bear signed with EMI Music Japan in January 2006, and immediately released an introductory album, Band B ni Tsuite, on January 12. (They had released another version of Band B ni Tsuite on October 14, 2005, but the new release included one new song and other remastering.)
