Kavune

Flyer JC Dobbs
Kavune was Roman Luba (Guitar, Organ, Vocals) / Marko Andryczyk (Guitar, Organ, Vocals) / Dave Skema (or Carlos Bravo) (Bass) / Christian Hayes (Drums)
I’ve collected 4 different recordings for this post:
1st up Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from 3/15/96
2nd Live from JC Dobbs opening for Mad Scene and Epic Soundtracks.
3rd the 2 song not.one.red.cent cassette and
4th their part of the Rock Bridge cd which is a split with Mācītājs On Acid

For a description I’m going to steal an article by Neil Gladstone (I assume from City Paper) It is a dark and breezy summer night around 4 am.
You’re driving in a pick-up truck somewhere in Ohio or maybe its Indiana already you’re not sure because the empty road you’re on has more convenience stores than highway signs. The tape you’re listening to is Kavune’s new ep, Sobaka. Your friend who recommended it sleeps in the passenger seat. The ticking of the hi-hat seems to fall in step with the steady pistons and the melody lines hum through the warm dashboard.Your eyes strain to stay in focus and you can feel adrenalin ebb and flow in your neck. The rhythm guitar in “Sat.”buzzes, chops and strums like roughshot Rolling Stones outtake. The voice is intimate and resigned. A raspy lead calls to mind the psychedelic, country riffs of the Byrds and Roky Erickson. “Shep Song” and “Venera” wash bleary memories and nightmares out of your head and into the rear view mirror. Kavune’s band members live in Philly and New York for most of the year, but often return to Ukraine, their parent’s homeland. That culture’s influence is undeniable. Kavune means “watermelon” in Ukrainian. The band often covers traditional folk songs and sings occasionally in the Eastern European language.

This was still when Carlos Bravo played bass for us. And he sings the first song while our studio producer Trevor Bajus plays guitar and I (Marko) play (!) sax for that song. On the last song, the ‘vkakuvstavtsi’ chorus (the ‘stepped in shit’ chorus) seems to feature Mark Halaway, among others.

No 2 Nippy

No 2 Nippy
No 2 Nippy’s 7 inch Delicious from 1994. Mid 90’s Philly band that that I saw many times including when they opened up for Bikini Kill at a KDU band bash. The band was Kristin Hurst (drums), Jill Macdowell (guitars & vocals) & Tammy Bonn (Vocals & Bass). The side A song  One lil Dukie reminds me of one of my favorite bands of that time Babes in Toyland.  Tiny Thumbs is more of a noisy pop song with the 2nd song going back towards the style of the side A song.

A – One lil Dukie
B1 – Tiny Thumbs
B2 – Candy

Crankcase

CranckCase
crankcase. machine 1 was 1992 – 1995.
rob coye guitars and vocals
marc beck guitar and vocals
rick wright bass and vocals
chuck hanning drums drums and more drums
(the unit continued for a few years with Erwin Michelfelder (of Clabbers fronted Mezmorons’ replacing Marc)
Crankcase hits that spot between SY and fLIPS while sitting alongside Silkworm and Rodan.
the band initially started after a few jam sessions with the trio of Rob Coye, Marc Beck and a pre-Strapping Field Hands Jeff Werner. we had all been friends in our previous bands: Rob’s Grisly Fiction and Marc and Jeff’s Confusion Visits. incidentally, Marc and Jeff’s Vick Logic started at the same exact time

it was apparent that Rob and Marc could display some decent early 90s guitar histrionics, and we decided to become real by adding Grisly Fiction’s first drummer Chuck Hanning along with party companion Rick Wright
we played pretty actively in Philadelphia. notable billings were with US Maple and Babe the Blue Ox and one rousing show at Pi Lam’s Human BBQ with A Place to Bury Strangers
Rick remains active with Phila psych giants Flower Girl (please see their Bandcamp)
Rob Coye did a Grisly Fiction reunion project with gigs and continues playing noise with his Phantom Pilots project as well as instrumental duo Lame Cover Band (2008-forever) and a stints with Steven Cerio’s Small Girl Boils Water (early 2000’s) .
Marc remains retired from musical creativity after projects revelogic and (the) heroics
Chuck enjoys home brewing and jazz combo
please listen to this LOUD. play it LOUD . LOUD. LOUD!!!!
(Thanks for the files and the info -Marc)

Swinging Bachelors Of Science

Swinging-Bachelors-Of-Science

Swinging Bachelors Of Science were a band from Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Larry Bailis – vocals, Jeffrey Slott – Guitar & Vocals, Jonathan Schug- Bass, Eddie Beinlich – Drums. Jeffrey and Larry were first in a band called the Bolivians. When that band split up they continued as The Neo Duo with just guitars and vocals. In 1986 they added drums and bass and the band name was changed to Swinging Bachelors Of Science. The band played all over Philadelphia (Live from Chestnut Cabaret below) and broke up in the spring of 1988 having only released one single (also below).
