Roy Loney & The Phantom Movers (Original Flamin' Groovies singer!)
Forsaking an early experience as an actor, Loney turned to music during the folk boom of the early 60s. Impressed by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, he later formed the Chosen Few, a high school band which evolved into the Flamin’ Groovies. Loney’s voice and compositions provided the focal point for this cult-favourite act during its early history, but internal tension led to his departure in 1971. Roy then retired from professional music until 1977 when various ex-colleagues backed him on Artistic As Hell, an EP invoking the artist’s love of classic rockabilly. The following year he formed the Phantom Movers with James Ferrell (guitar) and Danny Mihm (drums), plus two further ex-Groovies’ alumni, Larry Lea (guitar) and Maurice Tani (bass). Out After Dark fully captured the spirit and style of the singer’s former group and was the subject of critical acclaim. Despite innumerable changes in personnel, Loney continued to pursue his unique blend of 50s rock ‘n’ roll and tongue-in-cheek humour through successive, often excellent albums and a powerful stage show. The singer disbanded his backing group in 1981 following the artistic failure of Contents Under Pressure, a flawed ‘power pop’ experiment. A second period of retirement ended with the release of Scientific Bombs Away, which also marked the reinstatement of the ‘Phantom Movers’ name. Although denied widespread popularity, Loney has nonetheless retained a small, but highly loyal, following.

Palmyra Delran, celebrated as the high-octane engine and guitar siren behind the '90s chick-powered retro garage-pop band The Friggs, will perform at NYC's The Cutting Room on May 31st alongside NYC favorites The Brimstones. Palmyra will be playing songs off her sassy trash-pop solo album You Are What You Absorb which premiered on WNYC Soundcheck's "Check Ahead" series and is out now.

Last month, Palmyra premiered the music video for "You're My Brian Jones" off You Are What You Absorb on PureVolume.com, featuring Nashville singer Boo Ray and a cameo by The Ettes – PRESS HERE to watch. Palmyra has also released The Making of "You're My Brian Jones" – PRESS HERE to watch. The song was selected by Little Steven Van Zandt as his personal pick for "Coolest Song of 2012" on SiriusXM's Little Steven's Underground Garage.

You Are What You Absorb offers up an intoxicating romp through the influences that have come to define Palmyra, but more importantly, that she has helped to define. These 12 tracks overflow with Palmyra's signature punk grit, hook-laden melodies, bright surf-pop, retro sass and cut-to-the-bone lyrics, reminding us that her unique rock 'n' roll spirit is just as captivating today as it was nearly two decades ago. PRESS HERE to listen to Palmyra's most recent single "Shy Boy," which Little Steven premiered as "The Coolest Song In The World."
