Harsh Reality

Harsh Reality are a little-known, proto-prog band formed in Stevenage, Hertfordshire in 1968 out of the remnants of the Freightliner Blues Band. The band consisted of Mark Griffiths and Dave Jenkins on guitars, Alan Greed on lead vocals and organ, Roger Swallow on drums, Steve Miller on bass and backing vocals, they released a single for Philips Records in 1968 before releasing their only album and Hell on Philips in 1969. A final single followed soon after, before the band split in 1969, their Heaven and Hell LP is now a sought-after rarity, selling for hundreds of pounds between eager collectors. For this reason, Harsh Reality is somewhat famous/infamous in collecting circles. Though seen as part of the proto-progressive rock era, their work represented a marriage between the sounds of Procol Harum and early Deep Purple. Following the band's demise, Roger Swallow played with Principal Edwards Magic Theatre, Matthews Southern Comfort, Albion Country Band, Al Stewart. Alan Greed went on to work with Ray Russell on the Rock Workshop albums, as a session singer.

Greed fronted the jazz/progressive outfit, The Running Man. A self-titled album was released in the UK on the Neon record label in 1972. Mark Griffiths has worked with Matthews Southern Comfort, Jonathan Kelly, Al Stewart, David Essex, The Everly Brothers, Cliff Richard & The Shadows; the rest of the band went into session work. The song "Tobacco Ash Sunday" was covered by Paul Weller for AOL Sessions. Heaven and Hell will be reissued for the first time on CD by Esoteric Recordings on 26 September 2011, with four bonus tracks and a 16-page booklet containing a lengthy interview with the band.

Drangstedt

Drangstedt is a village and a former municipality in the district of Cuxhaven, in Lower Saxony, Germany. Since 1 January 2015 it is part of the town Geestland. Drangstedt belonged to the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen, established in 1180. In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, first ruled in personal union by the Swedish Crown - interrupted by a Danish occupation - and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. In 1807 the ephemeric Kingdom of Westphalia annexed the Duchy, before France annexed it in 1810. In 1813 the Duchy was restored to the Electorate of Hanover, which - after its upgrade to the Kingdom of Hanover in 1814 - incorporated the Duchy in a real union and the Ducal territory, including Drangstedt, became part of the new Stade Region, established in 1823

Celelalte Cuvinte

Celelalte Cuvinte is a Romanian rock band from Oradea, Crișana founded in December of 1981, in Timișoara and still active to this day. Although it is accepted that Celelalte Cuvinte is a heavy metal band, the members of the band have experimented with other sub-genres like doom metal - an unique experience in Romanian rock music - or like alternative rock - in the Ispita album. Celelalte Cuvinte is the first Romanian rock band that got the attention of the audiences that wanted elaborated music, after Phoenix fled the country in 1977 for West Germany. However, the Armaghedon album is underground, so the band is both important for mainstream and underground Romanian music. On September 12, 2008, the band has decided to make two songs form the new album - "Stem" and "Zmeie", the single that promotes the new album, available for streaming on their Myspace page; the album, called Stem, was released in October 2008. The band continues to play concerts all over Romania.
