Time Cero launch new album ‘Time Cero’

Time Cero are a rock/alternative/metal band based in Lima, Peru and fronted by their creator Carlos Li Carrillo who moved to Boston USA when he was 18 years old. During his teenage years in Lima, Peru in the mid 80’s, Carlos was the bass player and co-writer of Thrash Metal band “Curriculum Mortis”. Their first material was recently released on a U.S. vinyl edition and sold out 1000+ copies in the first year of release.

During the early 90’s Carlos was in the Progressive Rock band called ‘Avispon Verde’ and recorded 2 records while gigging regularly across the Lima alternative rock scene. In the late 90’s Carlos relocated to Hong Kong where he was influenced by numerous music genres and sounds from different parts of the world delving into digital recording and electronic sounds.

In 2001 while Carlos was travelling around the world, he created Novalima an Electronic collective band. The band mixed different grooves and singers from the around the world with Afroperuvian vocals and percussions.

Novalima became a big success with its first self-titled album on the Lima music scene and they soon signed their ” Afro” album with Mr. Bongo Records based in the U.K.

The song Machete was licensed to the world famous Robert Rodriguez “Machete” movie starring Danny Trejo and Robert De Niro. Later on Novalima released the album Coba Coba which was nominated for the 10th Latin Grammy as Best Alternative Record.
It was after producing one more album in his previous band that Carlos decided to move into different directions and started his current solo project called Time Cero.

Time Cero mixes a combination of styles ranging from Industrial Metal and Rock sounds to tribal and dance percussion. The project was recorded in Lima, Peru and was mixed and mastered by Kevin Paul in London.

Kevin Paul was the head engineer of Mute records and has mixed known bands such as Nick Cave, David Bowie and Depeche Mode. In June 2016, Kevin Paul joined Carlos in Lima,Peru to mix the Surround 5.1 version of the Time Cero album which will be released worldwide on DVD a few months after the digital Stereo release this November.

The brand new single off the album is “Time Cero”.

Adreyn–Demarrer

Alt Demarrer cover

Countless artists battle to carve  define or establish their own musical identity. For some  it’s a strenuous process of experimenting with various musical styles in an attempt to stumble upon something that “fits”.   From the upcoming release of his debut E.P. “Demarrer”  spearheaded by the singles “Anthem” and “Tomorrow” what is apparent about Adreyn Cash is that he is an artist that is not only fully aware of his musical identity  but in full  natural command of it.

With its routes dug deep within soul music  Adreyn Cash’s sound consists of the smooth mixture of emotion and perhaps even fear projecting music that is alternative: dark but by no means depressing. He said ” I create music that people can listen and relate to  but also music that reaches out to the person within  the one whom we hide from the masses, my music is the voice for the hidden us. 

Currently living in London but originally from Kingston, Jamaica (of Taino descent), growing up  Adreyn found himself in and around music from an early age. A strong musical heritage consisting of reggae artists RDX, Eric Donaldson and growing up in Church with MNEK, the all-important presence of his mother meant that becoming a musician himself was something he was destined to do.

It wasn’t until the age of 16 however that he started taking his music seriously upon which  he was able to flourish at an array of opportunities. He championed renditions of songs such as John Legend’s “Ordinary People” at weddings, birthdays and secondary school performances that on one performance included the Mayor and Mayoress of his borough amongst the delighted audience. Excitement for him as a musician was growing. “The belief was that once he gets into the industry there will be no stopping him”- Mayor of the London Borough of Bromley.

With the acknowledgment of him as a musician increasing, he began playing bigger events for an expanded fan-base that continued to grow ever stronger. This ultimately culminated into an early highlight of his career: performing at the Indig02 in December 2009.   The freedom to write  produce and sing his own music started the process of writing the demo “Slow Motion” in 2010.

Staying true to emotions inspiring his music “Slow Motion” was recorded to capture a moment in his life where he wished he could dissect his life piece-by-piece to see if he would change anything. Lyrics such as “I’m losing all emotion in my heart, what’s happening? Where do I even start? and the simple and slow harmonious beat consisting of steady string chords and decisive piano chords, gave a glimpse of Adreyn Cash at an embryonic stage as an artist: thoughtful, deep rhythms and vocals.

With an assortment of successful live performances to his name, his attention turned to creating “Demarrer” his first full length EP. The E.P was produced by Rushard Allwood, Jude Gyamfi-Osew Tyrell, Paul Segun Olowu at Allwood’s Studios in South London.

Indie Britpop Legends Oasis to reform in 2017

oasi

So it really looks like Oasis are reforming for 2017. They just aren’t telling you. Noise11 has heard of one UK rock band from the 90s with a very close connection to Liam Gallagher may have been tapped as the opening act for some of the shows so fans could be in for the ‘ride’ of their life.
The Liam and Noel Gallagher rivalry has well and truly been mended, although a public display of antagonism may work in the favour of publicity.

Oasis last played together with Noel and Liam Gallagher on 22 August 2009 at the V Festival in Stafford. The final song the Gallagher’s played together was a cover of ‘I Am The Walrus’ by The Beatles.

After that the last few years has seen drama between the two siblings unseen since Alexis Colby and Krystle Carrington bitch slapped each other endlessly until Dynasty went off the air.

Oasis released a 3CD 20th-anniversary edition of ‘Be Here Now’ this year. The original album featured Johnny Depp on guitar on the track ‘Fade In-Out’. The new 3CD version featured Oasis performing The Beatles ‘Help’.

Since the break-up of Oasis Liam Gallagher has released two albums as Beady Eye and has a solo album scheduled for 2017. Noel has released two albums with High Flying Birds.
The last Oasis album was ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ in 2008.

Legendary singer and 80’s icon Pete Burns, frontman for pop group Dead Or Alive, has died of a cardiac arrest aged 57.

The singer Pete Burns, who founded pop group Dead Or Alive, has died of a cardiac arrest aged 57.

Burns rose to fame in the 1980s with the band’s hit song You Spin Me Round (Like a Record). He also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2006, coming fifth in the final.

A statement released by his partner, Michael Simpson, his ex-wife, Lynne Corlett, and his manager and former band member, Steve Coy, read: “All of his family and friends are devastated by the loss of our special star. He was a true visionary, a beautiful talented soul and will be missed by all those who loved and appreciated everything he was and all of the wonderful memories he has left us with.”

Born in Cheshire to a Liverpudlian father and German mother who was a survivor of the Holocaust, Burns described his upbringing as unconventional. His mother was an alcoholic, and attempted suicide several times when Burns was growing up.

“As far as parental skills go in the conventional, normal world, she certainly wasn’t a mother, but she’s the best human being that I’ve ever had the privilege of being in the company of, and I know that she had a special plan for me,” he said. “She called me ‘Star Baby’ and she knew that there was something special in me.”

Never one to conform to the rules, Burns dropped out of his Liverpool boys school at the age of 14 after he was summoned to the headmaster’s office “with no eyebrows, Harmony-red hair and one gigantic earring”. He began working in a record shop in Liverpool, where he formed his first band, the Mystery Girls, though they played only one gig. Burns formed Dead Or Alive with Mike Percy, Steve Coy and Tim Lever in 1980.

Burns became famous for his androgynous style and his progressive approach to gender. He often wore women’s clothes and said: “Everyone’s in drag of some sorts, I don’t give a fuck about gender and drag. I’m not trying to be a girl by putting on a dress – gender is separated by fabric. I was brought up with an incredible amount of freedom and creativity. Society has put certain constraints on things.”

Boy George, who Burns once accused of ripping off his style, paid tribute to the singer, writing: “Tearful about the passing of Pete Burns, he was one of our great true eccentrics and such a big part of my life! Wow. Hard to believe!”

The presenter Davina McCall shared her memories of Burns. “So so sad to hear about Pete Burns. We partied hard in the 90s. RIP Pete,” she said.

Burns lived out his life in the full public glare, though his most notorious appearance was on season four of Celebrity Big Brother, in which he memorably performed a dance with the former MP George Galloway, both dressed in Lycra leotards.

Galloway paid tribute to the singer, tweeting: “Sad to hear of the demise of Pete Burns. He was a cross between Oscar Wilde and Dorothy Parker. You don’t get more brilliant than that. RIP.”

Marc Almond, the Soft Cell musician, tweeted: “We’ve had some mad times with Pete but he was a one off creation, a fabulous, fantastic, brilliant creature and always sweet to me.”

Joe Musker, a former drummer with Dead Or Alive, told BBC Radio 5 Live: “He was the ace face in Liverpool. He was just so flamboyant and just right out there with his dress and that. He always looked absolutely amazing and it was a pleasure to work with him.”

He married his first wife, Lynne, a hairdresser, in 1978 but the pair separated in 2006 and Burns married his partner, Michael Simpson, soon after, inviting television cameras to their wedding.

He also admitted to having an addiction to cosmetic surgery, having over 300 operations in his lifetime, mainly on his face, and in 2006 almost died on the table during nose surgery.

He once said that “changing my face is like buying a new sofa” and that there was “not a part of me, apart from the soles of my feet, which has not had work done. For me, plastic surgery is a matter of sanity, not vanity.”

However, his decades-long obsession with surgically changing his appearance eventually led to bankruptcy after he had to pay out thousands for 18 months of corrective surgery in Italy when an operation on his lips went wrong.

Despite various attempts, Burns’s solo career never reached the mainstream success of Dead Or Alive. His last single, Never Marry an Icon, was released in 2010.
