    03.Rage Of Angels Rage Of Angels 3.23 In the mid '80s, Mia Moravis (vocals, guitar) and Nancy Catedral (vocals, bass) started a DC/Baltimore area garage band rock duo, called B*I*S (derived from a joke about their apparel). They proceeded to the studio to record three of Mia's original songs, one of which was Nothing to Brag About, which features guest guitarist John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter, BeauSoleil, Iris Dement, Indigo Girls, et al.). The song garnered regional radio coverage and then a Billboard Songwriting Top Ten nomination.  It became obvious to Mia and Nancy that they should expand the band, and they auditioned and brought aboard Anna Shauer (guitar, backing vocals), Lori Dale (lead guitar) and Shirley Purvis (drums), and RAGE OF ANGELS was born.
    Lori had written music for a song, but had no lyrics or name for it. Mia provided both, and that song is Half A Mile Away. The band moved into a bigger, better performance-ready garage, where crowds gathered to watch the new all-girl band. They proceeded to a friend's small home studio to record the song. This song, too, garnered a Billboard Songwriting Top Ten nomination.  Both songs were recently rescued from dusty analog tape and converted to the digital medium.  (John passed away in October 2015, and Mia and Nancy are grateful to Bongo Boy Records for the opportunity to pay him homage) https://www.reverbnation.com/miamoravis
    04.The Accelerators Take It Or Leave It  2.59 They released a number of self-produced vinyl records and cassettes and were featured on comps such as the Weird New Jersey collections with standout titles such as "Shades of Death Road". Their brand of fast and loud "power pop" music made them local club favorites throughout the late 1980s.

    07.The Catholic Girls Broken Records 3.34. The Catholic Girls were born when schoolgirls Gail Petersen and Roxy Andersen put their guitars together to form the first all-female band from New Jersey that would be signed to a major label. With Doreen Holmes on drums, The Catholic Girls released an album on MCA both in the USA and Australia as well as a special Armed Forces Edition. They embarked on 2 national tours, received widespread commercial airplay and debuted on MTV to the music of their new wave anthem, Boys Can Cry. In 1999, the original album was revived and released in CD format, and fans from the 80s were thrilled to have the girls in plaid back, as were many new fans they were making along the way.

    08.The Chords UK are a 1970s British pop music group, commonly associated with the 1970s mod revival, who had several hits in their homeland, before the decline of the trend brought about their break-up. They were one of the more successful groups to emerge during the revival, and they re-formed with the four original members for a UK tour in 2010.

    09. ZOMBIE GARDEN CLUB Fuzztones. Eternal Garage of the expanding mind. Fenders. Vintage tube amps. Vox Continentals. Yardbirds. Seeds. Standells. Blues Magoos. Did I mention fuzztones? Thumping kicks. Cracking snares.
    Retro/modern. Kinda loud. Kinda now. ZOMBIE GARDEN CLUB is Johnny Douglas. From Toronto. Nashville now by way of L.A.  Up from the dust and the dirt. Interstates snaking across the great, throbbing heart of America. And big guitars. Plugged in. Turned up. Hearts full of rain and eyes wide open. Fast cars. Late nights. Deep diamond veins to mine. Storms and the mornings after. Two lane black top over the edge of the world into a breathless sky. Girls smile. The band plays on.
