A combination of electronica, progressive, world music, and rock influences. Trying a mashup of styles to see what can be created. Really, with Dave and I (and brother Ed occasionally) the strict adherence to electronica has gone completely off the rails.
This music production started out as Mband a number years ago, the name being an inside joke. After a couple years a number of other "Mband s" came out on the internet, so the name was changed. The project is concerned with experiments in the electronica areas to see if some interesting mashups can be thought up to produce some new styles. Lofty goals, we'll see if they are achievable. The project has a main member (Jim) and some occasional contributors for samples, studio work, etc.
We did, but not recently. Our most memorable gig was way back in 1983 or so where played an orginal punk/new wave band at the Lit Club in Hartford CT. The name of the band at the time was AKM.
