Bucket on CD

Here is a group whose members have been a big part of the underground Tri-State area music scene for the last ten years. With some critical acclaim (see CMJ reviews in archives under artist 'Maximum America', the band slugged through the independent alternative landscape, opening for artists such as Wall of Voodoo, The Ramones, Little Steven Van Zandt, Joan Jett, Lone Justice, and others. After steady radio airplay and increasing CD sales, (self released) they were picked up by a brand new indie label, headed by a well known commercial radio DJ and club owner.Unfortunately, the promotions director spent the advertising budget on cocaine instead of promoting the band, leading to the eventual collapse of the record company. Unfazed by this, the band was quickly snatched up by another New Jersey independent record company. The band recorded and released another CD, in this case with veteran producer Phil Garland (of the band 'Truth') .He and the band collaborated to record a solid product of New Jersey sonic angst, but again, inter-label trouble between partners (i.e.: one partner taking most of the 'new artist' budget, and bringing his several girlfriends skiing in Europe on 'business trips' caused the release to falter. With two releases, and with the positive momentum gained from these signings, the band captured the interest of a major music fanzine publisher. He had become a supporter of the band, and was quick to sign the band on for a deal. This partnership produced a live album, along with some solid single works.However, after the release of the CD and some promising promotion, the money behind the band collapsed when the publisher developed financing problems unrelated to the project. The CD'S were dropped of at guitarist Max Huber's basement apartment two days later.This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, since the band has since sold those 10,000 CD's at shows, and over the internet. So, deciding that they had to make money the old fashioned way, by working day jobs and playing cover songs in clubs, the band played the gamut of top 40 alternative rock hits. Unfortunately, they also put their 'own spin' on most of the material...causing the club owners to completely hate them for not sounding like a' jukebox' band. One positive result of this exercise was the recording of the bands version of 'Sounds of Silence', (the secret extra track on the CD.) You can imagine how they played other 'covers' by how they completely murdered this AOR folk-rock classic. The band did put together another project during this time. With help from veteran producer James Mastro and recorded over a one year period, it met with considerable success. Promoted by the Planetary Group in Boston, MA, the disc managed to be added at hundreds of college and commercial stations. OML is currently in the studio with new Wunderkind Chris Gibson. The project is slated for release in the Fall of 2005 and is some of the best work done to date. Honing their 'live' performance skills by playing many of the original clubs in New York (CBGBs, Lion's Den, Irving Plaza, Limelight) and New Jersey, (Stone Pony, The Saint, Tradewinds) they are looking forward to continuing their weird success story. Max Huber: Main vocals, guitar, band guidance, and light housekeeping. James Shargay: Bass and alternate main vocals, also stoic behavior. Mike Fury: Vocals and keys; percussion also, when lucid. Javier Pombo: Guitar, bad jokes, and outraaaaageous accent. Pete Minotti: Drums and candy procurement (newest member)
