The Black Maria
If you feel the need for a different type of punk in your life, get a load of this. The Black Maria's first album "Lead Us to Reason" couldn't have come at a better time. As the winner of the Yahoo "Who's Next?" contest, The BM blew everyone away with its melancholy lyrics and immense instrumental skill. These five guys combine keyboards, guitars, drums and vocals for a sound similar to Good Charlotte, but with a style that is all their own. This band is off to a successful start, and is just starting to tour North America. For info on tour dates, a sample of music from the album, videos and/or pix, go to www.theblackmaria.com.
