Dead Meadow
Dead Meadow
Dead Meadow formed in 1998 with Jason Simon on vocals and guitar, Steve Kille on bass, and Mark Laughlin on drums. The threesome initially met in the DC indie music scene in highschool and a few years later began to combine 70s hard rock and 60s psychedelic rock with themes from authors such as Lord Dunsany and H. P. Lovecraft. The first album, Dead Meadow (self-titled), with the cover art made by Steve Kille was released in 2000 on Tolotta Records, a basement label run by Fugazi bassist Joe Lally. The LP version was released by Planaria Records. The self-titled album was quickly followed by 2001's Howls from the Hills recorded at friend Stephen McCarty's (who would later join Dead Meadow) grandparent's farm house in rural Indiana, also released on Tolotta Records. At the completion of "Howls from the Hills" John Peel asked Dead Meadow to record a Peel Session which was recorded in Fugazi's home studio, the first time a Peel Session was recorded outside the BBC studios.The Peel Sessions remained unreleased until 2012.

In August 2010, Stephen Mccarty decided to quit and original drummer Mark Laughlin came back in the band and made his first appearance at Clean Air Clean Stars Festival in Joshua Tree, California followed by an Australian tour in October 2010 and a string of U.S. reunion shows and a European tour in 2011.
Merlin
Merlin
Imagine a world besides yerown. A world with no Industry. A world with no Electricity. A world where magic and law were the same, and science was in the stars. Imagine yerself walking in a dark, grassy field, in the middle of a forest with trees so immense, you cannot see the sky. Fog covers the ground beneath yer feet, and glowing mushrooms tower above. Will 'o' Wisps fly around you. There's a stram up ahead, pouring into a small pond of glowing blue water. The color is amazing. You see a nearby furry creature drinking from it. Suddenly it hears a sound and runs. You remained silent, and turn around. In the mists a black armored giant, with two glowing green eyes is running toward you. His face covered with a skull. You don't know what to do. Then, from behind you, coming out from the stream, a naked woman, more beautiful than anything you've ever seen in yer life hands you a staff of gold. You take the staff and aim it towards the giant. You utter four words you've never heard of and fire spews from the crystal ball at the end of it. He explodes. You turn around and she's gone. You wake up.

Merlin is like that dream, only you'll never wake up.
