Lazy Giants
-Berlin, GR
-Nearly 45 years after assembling in San Francisco's fertile punk underground, Toiling Midgets have turned into Lazy Giants.
The original name, intended without malice or prejudice, hailed from a TV show, in which an interviewer asked two little-person tycoons
about the secret to their success. But times and contexts are different now, so the group has officially rechristened itself Lazy Giants.

The Sleepers A.D.
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Sleepers formed in Palo Alto, California, in 1978.

Michael Belfer had been trying to form a band with his friend, Tim Mooney, and Belfer had decided he wanted former Crime drummer Ricky Williams for vocals, as "he was so awesome looking". The band released a five-track 7-inch EP in late 1978, and then broke up, with Belfer playing in Tuxedomoon during 1978 and 1979, and Williams co-founding Flipper, from which he was fired before the band made any recordings "for being too weird".

In 1980, the band reformed and released a single, "Mirror"/"Theory", and an album, Painless Nights. The new lineup on the LP featured Brian MacLeod (drums), Ron MacLeod (bass), and Mike White (guitar/effects). Williams' abuse of speed led to erratic and violent behavior, which culminated in his passing out on stage on the second date of the group's East Coast tour at New York's Hurrah. The band broke up onstage after this incident.

Galaxy Chamber
-from San Francisco, CA
-Eternally haunting Haight-Ashbury, Galaxy Chamber is a bubbling cauldron of writers, mystics, and musicians incorporating eclectic musical styles, politics, philosophy & humor through the lens of gothadelic rock, taking you on a journey into the long dark night of the narcotic American soul.
