GBH are an English punk rock band, formed in 1978 by vocalist Collin Abrahall and guitarist Colin “Jock” Blyth. GBH were early pioneers of English hardcore punk, often nicknamed “UK82” One of the most uncompromising bands in the world. GBH originally formed in 1979 in Birmingham, England, initially known as Charged GBH, to avoid confusion with a band similarly named, later dropping the prefix after it was discovered no other band existed. Their first album, City Baby Attacked By Rats, was released in 1982 to critical acclaim and its follow up, City Baby’s Revenge, released in 1983 fortified the typical GBH sound – noisy and distorted hardcore punk rock. All through the 80’s and 90’s GBH continued to release records and tour the world. GBH have toured everywhere, extensively in the U.S.A., through Mexico to Brazil and Argentina, from Israel and across Europe to Poland and even in Japan. Bands like Metallica, Nirvana, Sepultura, Slayer(who covered Sick Boy on their recent punk covers C.D.) have all cited GBH as an influence. 2002 sees the release of a new album Ha Ha and that is their best in years. Another album, another world tour, and with 28 years under their belt, GBH is bigger and better than ever! Currently the band are working on songs for a new cd and doing one off gigs around europe.
Did my best with the sound… 10 feet from the speaker wall is not the best place for sound, but we’ll see!
Fall Out Boy rose to the forefront of emo pop in the mid-2000s, selling more than four million albums thanks to the band’s tabloid-grabbing bassist, able-voiced frontman, and handful of Top 40 hits. The group’s four members first came together in suburban Wilmette, a bedroom community 14 miles north of Chicago, around 2001. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joe Trohman had all taken part in various bands connected to Chicago’s underground hardcore scene. Most notably, Hurley drummed for Racetraitor, the furiously political metalcore outfit whose brief output was both a rallying point and sticking point within the hardcore community. As Fall Out Boy, the quartet used the unbridled intensity of hardcore as a foundation for melody-drenched pop-punk, with a heavy debt to the emo scene. They debuted with a self-released demo in 2001, following it up in May 2002 with a split LP (issued on the Uprising label) that also featured Project Rocket, for which Hurley also drummed. The band remained with the label for the release of a mini-LP, Fall Out Boy’s Evening Out with Your Girl, but a bidding war of sorts was already in full swing.
Fall Out Boy eventually signed a deal with Fueled by Ramen, the Florida-based label co-owned by Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello, but also received an advance from Island Records to record a proper debut album. The advance came with a right of first refusal for Island on Fall Out Boy’s next album, but it also financed the recording of Take This to Your Grave, which occurred at Butch Vig’s Smart Studios compound in Madison, Wisconsin, with producer Sean O’Keefe (Lucky Boys Confusion, Motion City Soundtrack) at the helm. Take This to Your Grave appeared in May 2003, and Fall Out Boy earned positive reviews for subsequent gigs at South by Southwest and various tour appearances. Their breakout album, the ambitious From Under the Cork Tree, followed in spring 2005, quickly reaching the Top Ten of Billboard’s album chart and spawning two Top Ten hits with “Sugar We’re Going Down” and the furiously upbeat “Dance, Dance.” The album went double platinum and earned the musicians a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
Fall Out Boy’s underground star status — driven by the especially extroverted Wentz, who also gained exposure with his clothing line, his Decaydance record label (an imprint of Fueled by Ramen), and eventually a celebrity relationship with Ashlee Simpson — had boiled over into the mainstream. They toured extensively, supporting the album with international tours, arena shows, TRL visits, late-night television gigs, and music award shows. Without taking a break, the guys then hunkered down to work on their follow-up record with From Under the Cork Tree producer Neil Avron (and, somewhat surprisingly, Babyface). Infinity on High, whose title was taken from a line in one of Van Gogh’s personal letters, appeared in early February 2007, spearheaded by the hit single “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race.” The album continued Fall Out Boy’s streak, debuting at number one on the Billboard charts and going platinum one month later. Released in early 2008, the CD/DVD package Live in Phoenix documented the band’s strength as a flashy live act, while the full-length studio effort Folie à Deux followed later that year.
Recording sessions for Folie à Deux were tough, prompting the band to take an open-ended hiatus soon after the album’s release. Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley joined a new band, Damned Things, during the interim, while Wentz teamed up with a new vocalist, Bebe Rexha, to form Black Cards. Stump took the opportunity to launch a solo career, ditching his band’s emo pop music in favor of a more electronic, R&B-influenced sound.
Stump released his debut solo album Soul Punk in 2011 and, despite some positive reviews, the album didn’t catch fire. Pete Wentz spent time with a new band called Black Cards, but that also didn’t really go anywhere, and it wasn’t long before rumors of a Fall Out Boy reunion began to swirl. In February 2013 the band confirmed that the rumors were true: they had reunited for a new album called Save Rock & Roll and an accompanying tour. Save Rock & Roll was released in April of 2013, preceded by the single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up).” Just shy of two years later, in January 2015, the band unveiled their sixth album, American Beauty/American Psycho. Produced in part by J.R. Rotem and SebastiAn, it was a wholly modern effort that combined Fall Out Boy’s core punk-pop sound with elements of electronica, R&B, and hip-hop. ~ Johnny Loftus & Corey Apar, Rovi

The electronic music is a type of music produced and performed predominantly with electronic musical instruments such as the synthesizer, the sampler, the drum, the sequencer, and more recently, computers, thanks to the increasing developments in technology and software, play a vital role in the production of contemporary electronic music. It also typically use electromechanical instruments such as electric guitar or the Hammond organ. There are a lot of electronic music genres, showing a very wide range of sounds; from the background music to the music industry more experimental, to styles such as synthpop, dance, hip hop or chill out, they all have in common is the predominant or exclusive use of electronic instruments.
Synthpop or synth-pop or synthpop denotes a pop style in the 1970s within the electronic dance music, whose main feature is the use of electronic instruments as a style element. This traditional instruments should not simply be replaced by electronic music. Instead, it was started as a trial order, new artistic ways of creating sound design and style to go.
In addition to synth-pop, the terms “are electro “and” Technopop “is used, the precise definition and limitation are discussed differently. What is meant is a produced with synthetic sound generation and / or pop music samplers, depending on the musical emphasis. Nevertheless, not every pop music electronically generated automatically called synth pop.
In the triumph of techno -movement of the synth-pop was pushed back into the ground. There, especially bands like led De / Vision, Second Decay, Elegant Machinery and Pitch Yarn of Matter typical of the 1980s sound on. With the advent of ever more powerful PCs from the mid-1990s keyboard synthesizer and sampling machines disappeared progressively and thus gradually the classic synth-pop.
At the same time, there was a brief synth-pop revival, but the one major success was denied. Setting the tone here were mainly Swedish and German labels such as October, with bands like Children Within, Kiethevez, Vision System, Forbidden Colours and State Machine, and Visage Records, with groups such as the Daily Planet and Point of View.
While the most common in the industrialized world is on popular music with electronic instruments, Synth-pop has its own stylistic tendencies that differentiate it from other music produced by the same means. These include the exploitation of artificiality (synthesizers are used to mimic acoustic instruments), the use of mechanical rhythms, vocal arrangements as a counterpoint to the artificiality of the instruments and the model ostinato effect. Structures Synth-pop songs are generally similar to popular music.
The Synth-pop origins date back to the development of synthesizers and Electronic music, but its real development began when the pioneers of Electronic Kraftwerk recorded their fourth album Autobahn in 1974, changing the development of Electronic music and popular. The use that was given to synthesizers by the then trio of Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider and Wolfgang Flur catapulted to international success. His revolutionary work, futuristic and original for the time, would be instrumental in the development of music in later years and would influence strongly the artists that would come a few years later, especially in the United Kingdom.
In Germany, Synth-pop movement began from the age of Kraftwerk after launched its first self-titled album in 1970. Kraftwerk, who had come from the movement of progressive rock, decided to go further with sound experimentation creating an innovative multidisciplinary concept future generations of Electronic music. The most important exponents of Synth-pop in Germany are Alphaville, Kraftwerk, Celebrate the Nun, Camouflage and Modern Talking.
In the new millennium, a renewed interest in Electronic music and nostalgia of the 1980s led to the beginnings of a revival of Synth-pop, with acts such as Fischerspooner and Adult. In 2003-2004 they began to move into the mainstream with Ladytron, The Postal Service, Cut Copy, The Bravery and The Killers all producing records that synthesizer incorporated vintage sounds and styles that contrast with the dominant genres Post-grunge and Nu Metal.
The synthpop is defined by the use of synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers, often used to replace other instruments. Synthesizers usually used to mimic the sounds of orchestral instruments clichés. The songs were also included, and the lyrics were generally optimistic inspired themes such as romance.

RANCUNE treads the line between 80s-inspired electronic sounds and new-wave songwriting. Influenced by garage rock, electronic body music and most things in between, these three French guys living in Berlin can’t choose between singing in their mother tongue, English or German. Playing with an assemblage of analog synthesizers, drum machines, plus an organ and a guitar amp, the three members take turns to sing songs of love, lust, grudge and culinary frustration.
