This is Klaus Hess version of legendary Hannover krautrock band Jane. Founding member Peter Panka died as result of cancer in June 2007, which put the band on hold. However, in compliance with Panka's wishes original member Charly Maucher took over as leader and another studio album Traces was released in 2009 with the current lineup of Charly Maucher on lead vocals/bass, Klaus Waltz guitar/vocals, Arndt Shulz guitar vocals and Fritz Randow (ex Eloy & Saxon) on drums plus Werner Nadolny on keyboards. Although Werner Nadolny has since left the band, he currently tours with his own Jane tribute band performing vintage Jane material. Klaus Hess' Mother Jane also remains active with a recently released 2009 album titled In Dreams.
Every Mother's Nightmare has released their highly anticipated full-length album titled Grind. Grind includes "Loco Crazy" which features a guest appearance by Zach Myers of Shinedown on guitar with a companion video. The project also features appearances by Jim Dandy (The Jim Dandy), guest vocals on "Stand Up," and Wayne Swinny (Saliva), guitar on "Snake."
Culled from three Christmas tapes released by Flagpole magazine, this CD includes performances recorded between 1990-92 by 21 Atlanta, and Athens, GA. bands. Most of the songs are diverse "alternative" originals, but there's also a bizarre guitar/sax duet of "Jingle Bells" from The Flat Duo Jets, a cover of Spinal Tap's "Christmas with the Devil" by Allgood, an okay version of The Sonics' "Santa Claus" by The Woggles, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" from The La Brea Stompers, and more spotty fun.
