BAMM.tv Featured Artist – Ash – ‘Shining Light’

Posted on: No Comments

We’ve got a very special Featured Artist season this time around – we’re celebrating the 20-plus year career of Britrock legends Ash, whose glorious power-pop continues to thrill fans around the world. Oh, and did we mention that we snared a TOTALLY EXCLUSIVE BAMM.TV PERFORMANCE from them? Because, y’know, we did.

There’s more to come next week: more exclusive live video, a sprawling Ash retrospective, a look at their greatest musical moments and some great musical recommendation to take you down the indie rabbit hole if you’re looking for further Ash-like sounds.

In the meantime, check out this exclusive performance of all-time classic ‘Shining Light’ …

Hope you’re enjoying the hooks-and-handclaps ultra-melodic indie-rock from our Featured Artist Hollerado (we’ve already unleashed an in-depth article on the band, plus discovered their favorite musical moments from the BAMM.tv archives).

BAMM.tv Featured Artist: Hollerado

Posted on: 5 Comments

Charity begins at home, the old phrase goes – and if the history of Canadian melody-merchants Hollerado is anything to go by, it seems that musical genius begins in that area too. Born and raised in Manotick, Ontario (infact, three of the band members grew up on the same street together), the four Hollerado boys – Menno Versteeg, Nixon Boyd, Dean Baxter and Jake Boyd – officially came together in April 2007. Relocating to Montreal, they’ve since been gathering a well-deserved reputation as everyone’s favorite Bright Young Things.

Win Exclusive Whiskerman Prizes With BAMM.tv

Posted on: No Comments

So we’re coming to the end of Whiskerman’s tenure as our Featured Artist, and what better way to round things off than by giving away some exclusive prizes to you, our cherished BAMM.tv minions? (Well, one lucky BAMM.tv minion anyway. By the way, we mean ‘minions’ in the nicest possible sense). The band have a t-shirt, CD of their new album and Whiskerman sticker to give away.

But that’s not all – we also have five runner-up prizes waiting in the wings. Hell yes: we also have FIVE FAKE MUSTACHES to give away. That’s right – you could become YOUR VERY OWN WHISKERMAN (OR LADY). Imagine the envious glare from people as you strap one of those furry bad boys to your upper lip and quite literally own the streets. Or possibly get laughed at. We can’t make any guarantees.

To stand a chance of winning a Whiskerman T-shirt and album (or a fake mustache, by which BAMM.tv takes no responsibility should your head explode in sheer excitement upon receiving), simply drop an email with ‘Whiskerman Contest’ as the subject to info [at] bamm.tv by midday on Friday 4th October. Good luck …

We’ve already explained just how great our Featured Artist Whiskerman is – so let’s give them the chance to recommend some greatness too. The band have been granted super-privileged access to the BAMM.tv vault (i.e. they bought us a couple of beers and we ‘accidentally’ let slip the combination lock), and they’ve chosen five of their personal highlights. Let’s take a look at the rundown …

It’s that time again. Long-time BAMM.tv fans (and if you’re a new BAMM.tv fan, just pretend you’ve been following us for ages to increase those coolness points) will know the drill by now: every now and then, we showcase an exciting new group or artist who we just can’t get enough of.

This time around, it’s the turn of Whiskerman, the phenomenal folky soul-rock five-piece who recently guested as part of our ‘Proving Grounds’ sessions (in association with Jawbone). Here’s a clip of this amazing group in action:

We’ve got all sorts of exclusive Whiskerman features coming up over the next couple of weeks, including a competition to win some very special prizes. In the meantime, we recently caught up with frontman Graham Patzner for this revealing interview …

Typhoon: Win Exclusive Signed Lyrics And More!

Posted on: No Comments

Well, it’s been a blast, but all good things must come to an end – so we’re sad to say that Typhoon’s residence as our Featured Artist is winding down. If you haven’t checked out all the great Typhoon stuff we’ve featured so far – interviews and playlists – then you really oughta get on that. Just sayin’.

Anyway, we couldn’t finish things with a whimper (anyone familiar with the band will attest that ‘whimpering’ really isn’t their style). So about this: we’re offering one lucky winner the chance to win an LP/CD (your choice) of Typhoon’s awesome new album ‘White Lighter’, as well as a poster, some stickers, a T-shirt …

… oh, and an illustrated sheet of lyrics penned by frontman Kyle Morton with images by Toby Tanabe. One-of-a-kind-prize much?

All you have to do is send an email – subject heading ‘Typhoon Contest’ – to info [a] bamm.tv before Friday 2nd August. We’ll pick a random winner and get in touch. Good luck!
