Harrison landed a deal with Impulse recording his critically acclaimed Nouveau Swing in 1997 and Free to Be in 1998, fusing modern jazz with elements of funk and reggae.  His most recent release, Spirits of Congo Square, furthers his exploration and innovation of his father’s Mardi Gras Indian legacy.

THE SONICS plus guest support tba.

February 5th, 2014

THE SONICS plus guest support tba.
Event on 2014-05-07 19:30:00


Listen to the classic album 'Here Are The Sonics' – Click Here

Since the beginning of garage rock, the northwest sound, grunge, or whatever anyone calls it, The Sonics set the precedence and the pace, and the sound that gave to every musician and band that followed the inalienable right to take rock to the edge of the universe, to explore the possibilities, to get out of the rut, experiment, and to scream your guts out, that you have arrived, and to continue that thought.

The Sonics have remained the most recognized sounds ever listened to by aspiring musicians and multitudes of fans around the world.

The band in its early stages, began in Larry and Andy Parypas living room with a couple of Sears bought guitars and an early unidentifiable bass. Their mom played some guitar and would encourage the boys to get it together. She loved rock, and was an early inspiration.

But it was in early 1963 where the band came together, with skin basher Bob Bennett on drums making them sound like cannons with each beat, and later on, the addition of gut wrenching screamer songwriter piano player singer Jerry Roslie and fellow musician friend, sax player Rob Lind, forming the original Sonics.

The Sonics songs and precedent music creations began in 1964, with a visit from Etiquette Records co-owner Buck Ormsby, following a friend of the band plea that he check out the group. The meeting took place at a rehearsal in Bob Bennetts garage. Not too impressed with the performance of cover songs, asked if they had any originals. A killer riff was played, but the lyrics didnt work. Two visits later and a change in lyrics, the song The Witch was born. The Sonics first 45 single was released on Etiquette Records in 1964.

Because of the power unleashed by the Sonics recording and unprecedented sound for the times, many stations were hesitant to play the record. Etiquette had an in with several A stations and also what were called B stations. The B stations were a bit easier and open to new sounds and especially local and regional groups recordings. They began the assault on the publics brain with the first plays of The Witch which took off like a bullet sending it screaming up their charts. This became the launch that helped force the A stations to give it a shot. Overnight, after six months of promoting the Sonics first single, they became the band to see, the new sensations, the bad boys of rock.

The new enlightenment, and the bands acceptance by music fans and DJs, demanded the bands first LP. Here Are the Sonics was recorded in Seattle, Washington late 1964 and released early 1965 to raves. This established the Sonics as one of the most progressive and popular rock bands in the Northwest. Originally released as a replacement for the original B side of The Witch the Sonics original Psycho became another brutal musical attack on the establishment and had to be played on all radio, again reinforcing the fact the Sonics were not going away. The bad boys of rock were raising hell with their new found glory, while hordes of fans would pack ballrooms and dancehalls waiting to see their new heroes. Etiquette Records planned for the next album, commandeering a small grocery store front studio in Tacoma Washington to record various Etiquette artists including the Wailers Out Of Our Tree single and LP.

The classic The Sonics Boom LP recorded in late 1965 and released in 1966 was the final Sonics album recordings on the Etiquette label. Both albums feature the most daring and dynamic rock music ever put to 2 track tape. The Sonics Boom simple black and white album cover is one of the most recognizable work of LP art in the world.

The original photo was taken by Northwest premier photographer Jini Dellaccio and used in the jacket designed by Zane Baker. The Sonics 60s recordings have remained the most recognized sounds ever listened to by aspiring musicians and multitudes of fans around the world.

The Sonics left Etiquette Records in 1966 to join with Seattle label Jerden Records. Soon after recording their first LP with the label, the original band decided to retire from the scene. Going their separate ways they individually kept performing in various music endeavors but the flame was dampened.

Following their early retirement from being the SONICS they left a legacy and decades of fans who continued to spread the word and the music. Still revered, in late 2007 the Sonics regrouped and reignited on the scene in Brooklyn, New York headlining two sold out shows at the Warsaw.

The Sonics return has sparked international promoters, journalists, reviewers, festival organizers and hordes of dedicated and new fans to embrace the group who's music has thrilled and inspired so many for so many years.

They returned to Seattle to headline their sold out concert at Seattle's Paramount Theatre where they performed their last '60's concert in1973. The Sonics headlined the Ink & Iron Festival in Long Beach, CA June 6 '09.

The Sonics accepted an invitation to perform at South By Southwest (SXSW) 2009 in Austin, Texas in March,2009 at Emo's. SXSW is Attended by music industry, including over 1000 music groups and artists from all over the world performing nightly during the event.

Aclaimed as one of the most memorable concerts since SXSW began.

Original members of the Sonics included Bob Bennett, Drums; Larry Parypa, Guitar; Jerry Roslie, keys and lead vocals; Rob Lind, sax, harp and vocals; Andy Parypa, bass;

The Sonics today includes: Jerry Roslie keys, lead vocals, Rob Lind, sax, harp and vocals; Larry Parypa, guitar bkg vocals, Dusty Watson drums; Freddie Dennis bass and vocals .

Makthaverskan (S) + support: Modern Love

Cafe Mono har den store gleden av å kunne presentere de nye svenske pop kometene “Makthaverskan”.  

I Göteborg är Makthaverskan för tillfället ett av världens bästa liveband.


En eller högst två gånger under varje decennium händer något stort i Popsverige. Förra gången det hände, på nollnolltalet, hette bandet Florian. Innan dess, på nittiotalet, hette de Broder Daniel. Nu heter de Makthaverskan.

Det har talats mycket om Makthaverskan den senaste tiden. De är från Göteborg och beskriver tristessen som sin främsta drivkraft (känns det bekant?). Alla som har sett dem live har antingen älskat eller hatat det (känns det bekant?). Bandet har en hängiven fanskara som de själva beskriver som en sekt (det kanske också känns bekant?).

Ja, Makthaverskan är unga. Makthaverskan är dock inte ett band som skildrar tonårsångest (och alltså inte är intressanta för folk över 20), utan ett band som lyckas skildra precis allting bättre än alla andra för att de är unga och fortfarande fattar vad allting handlar om. Vem skildrar vardagen (i synnerhet den Göteborgska) bättre än textraden “Oh every day is the same / I walk home in the rain”? Vem skildrar precis allting bättre än textraden ”I want it all to turn red / because I go out of my head / I want it all to turn blue / because you’re making me blue”?

Och ja, gemensamma beröringspunkter finns med Broder Daniel. Men där andra härmar stadiumindien från senare år, står Makthaverskan på egna ben och påminner om varför indie faktiskt är bra. De har snarare förhållningssättet än soundet gemensamt med Broder Daniel. De har undergångsstämningen från åttiotalets postpunk kombinerat med den älskvärda taffligheten hos åttiotalets brittiska indie. De har årets finaste kärlekslåt i ”Inside of me”.

Och de har Maja Milner Mathes röst. Inse hur mycket styrka, längtan och värme som finns i den! Tiotalet har börjat.

Modern Love

Da Washington DC-bandet Give spilte på Blitz i fjor høst så konstaterte de fra scenen at noe hadde skjedd i Oslo sin undergrunn. De norske supportbandene hørtes ikke like tradisjonelle ut som tidligere. Der hadde skjedd en modernisering i lydbilde og tilnærming. Det ene supportbandet het passende nok Modern Love og hadde akkurat spilt inn et par låter til en splitt syvtommer på Stonehenge Records.

På slutten av 50-tallet fikk tilhengerne av moderne jazz i London tilnavnet “mods”, de ønsket å stake ut en ny kurs som et alternativ til den trauste, konservative og tradisjonelle jazzen. Det er en stund siden sist det gav mening å plassere et punkband fra Oslo inn i en slik ligning, men den tid har altså kommet. Modern Love virker mest opptatt av å forlate alle konvensjoner der de skifter mellom norske og engelske tekster, har et sjangeroverskridene musikalsk uttrykk og holder fokus på her og nå situasjonen: konsertopplevelsen. Dermed overlater de gjenfortellingen, gjenforeningen og gjentakelsen til andre band.

Guy Debord sa på et tidspunkt at unge mennesker overalt blir gitt muligheten til å velge mellom kjærlighet og en avfallskvern. Overalt velger de avfallskvernen. Det er på tide å begynne å velge kjærlighet: Modern Love.

The Kenny Garrett Quintet, Support: The Ronnie Scotts All Stars

The Kenny Garrett Quintet, Support: The Ronnie Scotts All Stars
Event on 2013-10-10 00:00:00
Kenny Garrett (Alto and Soprano Saxophones), Corcoran Holt (Acoustic Bass), McClenty Hunter (Drums), Vernell Brown (Acoustic Piano), Rudy Bird (Percussion)

"Someone should post a storm warning before a Kenny Garrett concert."

Kenny Garrett is widely recognised as one of the most talented saxophonists of his generation, having recorded and worked with jazz legends including Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Freddie Hubbard and McCoy Tyner. His early days included periods in groups playing the music of Duke Ellington, Thad Jones and Charles Mingus before his career really took off with the release of his first album, Introducing Kenny Garrett, in 1984. His music is very much open to outside influences and, as his acclaimed 2006 album Beyond the Wall made apparent, he shows no signs of slowing down as a cutting edge artist and performer.
