Fractura . . . .323-962-3129 . . . . Fractura can be defined as a drastic impact which results in a breaking apart of elements and drawing their strengths from conquering their fractures. Fractura also represents the shattering of false expectations, throwing off the chains and boundaries that limit possibilities. The members of the L.A. band, Fractura, are searching for something ”new” and ”brutal” along with ”commitment” and ”musical vision.” Lead singer Gabby states ”We strive towards an energetic, contagious groove with an emotional, physical, and fun emphasis. I like the idea of representing a heavier, stronger side of woman. I think it’s a fairly unexplored territory. Women are more empowered now, and we like the idea of representing that strength. Our music is heavy and we get to the point. You either love or hate what we do.”

Nektare .PO Box 3945 .Beverly Hills .90212 .323-878-9146 . . . .Nektare is a psychedelic journey into juicy retro rock with an undercurrent of blues, soul & funk. Fronted by Naomi Nektare, an Arizona native, who is spreading her rock & roll roots here in California. Her haunting lyrics & melodies range from vunerable ballads to hard driving rock. She & her musical cohorts are a feast for all the senses, exploding on stage, leading you into a realm of multi-cultural sounds & deep emotion. Her voice belts out a spirituality with a soul - hard to believe coming from such a petite beauty - as her body moves with the seduction of serpentine fire. Nektare's membes may change, but the founding fathers remain the same - Gregory Sisul guitar wizard from Venice, CA (Naomi's core writing partner) and Eugne Lo, her platinum selling producer & manager, stand by her side on the dawn of a new musical revolution - creating real rock & roll. Nektare is currently recording their first full-length CD at Studio Atlantis in Hollywood. Email: Nektare rocks@usa.net

Z . . . .310-316-8828 .Frankie Anthony .310-767-0576 pgr. . .With the release of the debut Jamco album "Keepers of The Sign," a new chapter has begun in Z's history. "I am an exile from the 80's," says Robert Z., "That's when people gave a shit about what you sounded like & not what you wore. You can't fool people when they put a CD on their stereo system." Featuring strong, powerful & classical hard rock, "Keepers of The Sign" is a pure example of Z's musical force & is filled with no-nonsense rock 'n' roll songs. Bucking the superficial trendiness, the story of Z's career has been one of fierce determination & a desire to do things their own way. The band surfaced in Pasadena in the spring of 1995.

Zak Daniels And The One Eyed Snakes . . . .310-823-7154 . . . ."Rocks with a ferocity unseen in these parts for years. "Cartoon Savior" & "TV Re-Run" are perfect examples of Daniels' acerbic wit & biting often sarcastic insight. Lead guitarist Jim Katsikides, is a riff slinger in the tradition of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Billy Gibbons, he knows when to rage & when to pull back to allow Daniels room to move. The whole collection sparkles with a lustful sense of humor that reaffirms the notion that it's still okay to have some fun in rock & roll." The Boston Globe - By Scott Alarik.
