Latin Quarter first burst onto the scene with their singles "Radio Africa" and "New Millionaires" – songs that stayed for months in the German single charts in the 80s. After splitting up in 1998, five of the original musicians got together again in 2011. Unlike other bands they didn’t rely on previous fame but released an album with new songs, reflecting private and political life today. „Ocean Head“ was released in 2012, the follow up album „Tilt“ in 2014. This album gained a lot of response and respect and led to the reunification of the band Latin Quarter.For this album the band has been joined by drummer Martin Ditcham (Chris Rea, Sade). Special Guest on the "Tilt": Chris Rea on slide guitar, Richard Wright and Ed Hogston on electric guitar.
The Muggs is an American blues-rock band from Detroit, Michigan. Formed in February 2000 by guitarist Danny Methric, bassist Tony DeNardo and drummer Matt Rost. They were ranked in December 2008 on the "100 Hot Unsigned Band" list by Music Connection Magazine. They won several awards including the Best Blues Artist and the Best Rock Band for 2007. The band recorded a live show at Cadieux Cafe in Detroit, MI. in late 2012 which they released in April 2013 entitled Full Tilt. On their awesome double Live disc, The Muggs nail down 22 tracks of brain-damaging, killer, retro-sonic, heavy guitar power trio jams that captures the Detroit Rock Machine in all their raw, loud, dirty rock n' roll glory. Including 3 cover jams by Rory Gallagher, the Full Tilt disc brings & delivers a double dose of bad-ass, powerful guitar rock mojo. Highly recommended to fans of Mountain, Led Zeppelin, Grand Funk, James Gang & Budgie.
