Formerly known as the Wildbunch, the Detroit sextet Electric Six mix garage, disco, punk, new wave, and metal into cleverly dumb, in-your-face songs like "Danger! High Voltage," which reached number two on the British charts early in 2003. Singer Dick Valentine, guitarists Rock and Roll Indian and Surge Joebot, bassist Disco, and drummer M. formed the Wildbunch in 1996 (keyboardist Tait Nucleus? joined the band later), releasing their debut single, "I Lost Control (Of My Rock & Roll)," and the eight-track An Evening with the Many Moods of the Wildbunch's Greatest Hits...Tonight! that year on Uchu Cult Records. They also released 1999's full-length on that imprint. The group switched to Flying Bomb for singles like 1997's "The Ballade of MC Sucka DJ," the Christmas single "Flying Bomb Surprise Package, Vol. 1," and 2001's "Danger! High Voltage," which became an underground hit, particularly in the U.K.
Formed by twin brothers Michael and Robert Moroni, alt-rock band Viretta is one of the most well-known bands in Denver. Having toured the West Coast on multiple occasions, and headlined or played sold-out shows in nearly every venue in Denver, including a headliner at the historic Bluebird Theater, the group follows their gut; championing electric live shows and quality music, over current music trends. In doing so, Viretta has become one of the most exciting rock acts that’s surfaced in years; so awesome, that you’ll never listen to Ed Sheeran again. And now, with their new full length record “The Fear,” due for release May 18th, nowhere is safe. Serving up their own brand of molten hot riff rock with smooth contemplative guitar work, like Queens of the Stone Age falling backwards into Radiohead, Viretta makes sure everyone’s going home happy. You’ll thank us later.
