Willis, Super Deluxe, Muzzle,
7 Year Bitch,
The Fastbacks, Screaming Trees,
and The Presidents of the United States of America.
Seattle's answer to the Dave MathewsBand. Willis' blend of acoustic and synthasized music has quickly gained then noteriety among Seattle's Deadheads. Their smooth grooves gained the attention of Capitol Records who recently signed them on.
In the past they have toured with the Presidents of the
USA. The Rocket calls them "a veritable
Battlestar Galactica of pop." If you like Pop music, you will love Super Deluxe.
Their song "Famous" topped the Seattle charts the summer of 1995. Subsequently
they were picked up by Giant/Revolution Records, which moved them into the national
spotlight! They have now released two full length albums entitled Famous
and Via Satellite.
Here are some pictures of the lead singer, Braden Blake.

Featured in the movie Mad Love, this band has been a Seattle legend for a long time. Their style of Riot Grrrl Punk is a guaranteed sell-out at any club. I shot four rolls at their KISW Pain in the Grass show. Almost all the pictures were ruined by the darkroom chemicals. Only one picture survived, quite a good one I might add.

Mark Lanegan and company played to a huge crowd at the Capitol Theater in Olympia, Wa. After hassling with their lawyer I was allowed to take pictures and put them up on here.
Mark strikes the classic rock star pose.
Mark left after the ten song set, leaving the Trees to do without him for a song or two. They rocked, kicking out two intense songs and a 3 song encore. The show ended with guitarist Gary Conner doing a full on somersault into the crowd with his guitar on.
Overall the Trees put on a pretty sweet show.
Gary's guitar rifts whip the crowd into a frenzy.
Mark sang quick and quiet. Not what I expected at all.
The Presidents were one of the hottest new groups in the Alternative scene. I have had the pleasure of working with them several times. I like these guys because they jump around a lot and generally have fun on stage. This is more than I can say for most bads who just kind of sit there and do nothing. These guys make great photos. Here are some shots I got at the Moore Theatre way back in October of 1995.
Here are the band members.....
This is Chris, the lead singer. He writes all the songs and plays a 2 string guitar.
Here are my 2 favorite photos of the band.
