Bad Credit No Credit
'Largely influenced by the swing-jazz era of the 1930's, BC/NC's sound is wildly eclectic. The band utilizes all kinds of crazy instruments including the saxophone, a pair of flutes, the euphonium (similar to a tuba), a tambourine, and even some kazoos! But it is Carrie Anne's maniacal and operatic voice that is perhaps the most captivating instrument at work here, recalling the raw intensity of the legendary Diamanda Galás.' - BushwickBK.com (bushwickbk.com/2008/07/08/bad-creditno-credit-wreck-room-welcomes-all)
Aza Nizi Maza
Aza Nizi Maza - full six-piece band complete with a burning horn section – funk psychedelic soul, complex in rhythms, layers, and distortion. Randa Eid (singer) and Brian Abbott (bass) hit the road in 2010 for an award winning 30-show tour with their new wave rock outfit Grub Animal. With a deep passion to keep writing and performing, Randa approached Brian about collaborating on a new funky avant garde project. Randa Eid (singer/composer) has been described as Peaches mixed with Bjork. Brian Abbott (lead guitarist/composer) is a multi-instrumentalist: noisy rock music, avant-garde jazz, pop music, with a bent toward the freakier side of life. Drummer Abbott Segel has a funky original style with hints of groovin’ rock, soul, and just a touch of something heavier. Stephen Boniello (bass/ vocals) hails from a punk and classical background. Hugh Ash (trumpet) has played with the likes of Coco Rosie. Valerie Moniz spices up her classical piano background with flourishes of rock, pop, and soul. Aza Nizi Maza songs are as kaleidoscopic as their style and lyrics: a dissection of the über-hip tragedy – through crass yet poignant lyrics – arching over to more ethereal creations.
