The Humanoids
The Humanoids
Rumor is the Humanoids first emerged from the dank basement of an old industrial loft building situated on the edge of the financial district in Chinatown some time around 1999. It has been kind of a blur since then as most things connected to the Humanoids are.
They are more than a band. The Humanoids are a creative life force the likes of which the world has yet to understand. Their magnificence is a testament to the sleazy underbelly that is the soul of rock and roll. Their ideas are numerous, demented and well thought out, or they just scratch the surface and abandoned to the stack of questionable notebooks.
As a band they honed their craft in basements, lofts, watering holes and long gone venues from Maine to Virginia, from Brooklyn to Youngstown. They forge ahead in the epic battle for the soul of rock and roll, a soul that desperately needs saving.
In their action adventure journey to now The Humanoids have been honored to share the stage with The Dictators, Death (from Detroit), The Meatmen, Andrew WK, Wayne Kramer, Cheetah Chrome, Betty Blowtorch among thousands more.
The Humanoids are built to last and as always will fight for Heavy Metal, advocate Wild Times, and will continue to utterly destroy their enemies and anything else that stands in their way for decades to come!
Heavy Necker
Heavy Necker
"Formed in the very unlikely climes of Peabody, Mass. a handful of years ago, Heavy Necker is a power trio in the clinical sense, a six-legged cyclone of balls-out, soul-powered rock ’n’ roll that belies not only their tender ages, but their whole generational zeitgeist, really."
-THE NOISE MAGAZINE

"If you're looking for some heavy blues look no further - Heavy Necker from Massachusetts are playing a lethal combination of riffs and blues jams on their new "Reptile Kings" EP. The release features 4 tracks that are as straight forward as you could wish for. The gritty and raw sound of the dynamic trio is highlighted by some dirty vocals that perfectly blend into the style of the band. While tunes like "Memento Mori" feature some stomping rock rhythms you can also find some intense grooves in a song like "Reptile Kings". This EP really got the full package of what you could expect from a good and heavy blues record."
-MOS EISLEY MUSIC

"Heavy Necker is more on the hard rock side, but definitely as heavy as the name implies. The people in the crowd wondering why Heavy Necker was on a metal show were the same people that could not stop talking about what a great show they put on after their set."
-NATIONAL ROCK REVIEW

"a trio of musicians that are as much 70's classic rock oriented as they are Southern and psychedelic in their hooks and melodies-think Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Rolling Stones with a little Clutch in there."
-DEAD RHETORIC
Carissa Johnson
Carissa Johnson
"Carissa Johnson takes more cues from Sleater Kinney than Evanescence, and her latest CD, For Now, is a straight-up rocker that recalls early aughts Boston bands Aloud and Damone." - the Hippo (Boston)

"Puts me in mind of the Go-Gos at a summit meeting with the Sex Pistols." - Francis Dimenno, Noise Magazine (Boston)

"Carissa Johnson's mis-steps are more fun to listen to than many people's successes, due in large part to her overwhelming enthusiasm in selling her songs"

"A whole lot of fun to watch and looking like she just stepped out of a Runaways album cover, Johnson brings a great 70's punk feel." J. Pappaconstantine, Maine Music News

"Solid arrangements with good hooks, honest delivery and a real hearken back to the beefy old school production style of the New York Dolls." - M. Puskas
City Rivals
City Rivals
City Rivals was born in early 2014 when songwriter, Greg McKenna (of Letters To Cleo) enlisted Michael Coen and Matt Diekman (of The Bleedin Bleedins/Midatlantic) to collaborate on a hand full of songs he had in his music catalog. After a few rehearsals, City Rivals went into the studio and recorded this first round of songs including the track "Another Day". Shortly after the first round of recordings finished, City Rivals welcomed multi talented musician, Max Toste on drums and singer songwriter John Coen on guitars to complete it's line up. With music that hits you first in the heart then makes you move your feet, City Rivals musical hooks and vocal harmonies will leave you wanting more.
