Generation Landslide (Houston, TX)
“ Trevor Wallace Houston Underground Music Examiner June 22, 2011 – Generation Landslide is Houston’s newest contestant in the race for the garage/psychedelic crown. Combining 1967 San Fransisco and Texas psych through a Strokes filter with a Dylanesque via Roky Erickson vocal style, the band got some much needed attention at this years Free Press Summer Fest. Had they existed (good Lord) 45 years ago, they would be sharing a stage with The 13th Floor Elevators and Red Krayola. But their self-description says it better than I can without hackeneyed comparisons: ” GENERATION:landslide! is a band whose voice comes from the heart and soul of Houston, TX. These people are songwriters…artists…audiophiles. They have a great passion for music and the common man. They are the champions of “garage”-rock and psychedelia; a band of seekers….” Do yourself a favor and check them out at their MySpace page. You will not be sorry. ” - Trevor Wallace – Houston Underground Music Examiner
“Generation Landslide: Their music is an orchestrated blend of inspiration that includes everything from R.E.M. to Patti Smith. The band’s collective influences has helped them develop a sound that is a calculated hodgepodge of rock and roll rhythm with an infusion of catchy pop melodies.” - Bridgette Zabak – The Houston Press-Rocks off aftermath
“Tomorrow Was Yesterday”. The 12 songs on this disc are a refreshing throwback, a collection of smart, back to basics psychedelic songs. You’ll find more genuine artistic feel and expression here and less over-produced glitz or contrived assembly-line material.” - Hollywood Steve Rangel – Houston Music News
The Guillotines (Houston, TX)
The Guillotines were founded by Robert Conn on guitar (The Pagans, The Defnics, The Plague, AK-47′s) and co-founder and wife Jewels (Chelsea Hotel) on bass. Since the band’s inception, their only goal was to play the same loud, fast, and furious punk rock ‘n’ roll they helped create during the original punk movement in the 70′s. The band is rounded with Marc Munroe (The Hot Things) on drums and Pablo Ono (Electric Frankenstein, Texas Terri Bomb, The Hot Things, BlackNovas, Die Cobra) on guitar. Their music is pure and unapologetic and their live shows are an aural assault on your senses. Want to more? Just ask or go to a show!

The Velostacks are pure, high octane rock n' roll for the punk and motorhead in everyone. Based in Houston, TX, The Velostacks are a fury of fast chords, dirty guitars, and gang vocal blasphemy. Grab a beer and rev up your engines, because The Velostacks refuse to be told that rock n' roll is dead.
