The band toured all over the world with shows in the US, Canada, Europe, the UK and Japan, and has earned Joe nine Gold and two Platinum albums.

Andre from Cut the Berry and Jonathon Eley- Chats with the Freak

 Special thanks to Sarina from Music Hallucinations for making this episode possible!

Cut the Berry is a 5-piece experimental rock band, based in Manchester UK, but from all over the world.

Composed and produced in by André Pires, a sound engineer, producer and "weird music" fanatic, it delivers exactly that, weird music, arranged with beautiful melodies and aggressive latin, tribal, electronic and experimental interpretations. It tells a complex story narrated by a complex soundtrack.

Jonathon Eley released his third album, America 25. On Twitter the following day, Eley thanked his fans and announced this would be his last rap installment. A year after his poignant sophomore album, Tomorrow They’ll Care, Eley punctuates the trend of social commentary with this final installment. Since winning the title of “next big producer” from Ryan Lewis at the Buffalo Beat Battle, Eley has always used his platform to call out injustice 


Abi Rose Kelly- Chats with the Freak

Following the roaring success of her debut release ‘James’ corsa’, Abi Rose Kelly has today (Friday 17th April) released her second single ‘Polaroids & Violence’.

The second single from Abi Rose Kelly has been a hotly anticipated one, after ‘James’ corsa’ racked up 60,000 listens on her Spotify after seemingly coming out of the unknown. With the release of ‘Polaroids & Violence’, Warrington based Abi has firmly made her mark on the indie music scene, crystallising an incredibly accomplished sound for a musician so new. ‘Polaroids & Violence’ opens with a slacker grunge vibe, before the hammering drums knock you to attention. Abi’s vocals switch from having a sultry, breathless swagger to a rasping growl, almost as if Lana Del Rey was fronting a rock n roll band, and the change in tempo for the chorus almost catches you out for a moment before firmly pulling you back in.

Recorded at The Lounge in Wigan with producer Gareth Nuttall (The Lottery Winners, The K’s, The A.V. Club), ‘Polaroids & Violence’ was written in two very different parts of Abi’s life. Telling the story of how silly mistakes can sometimes turn out to work in your favour, the basis of the song reflects a time of feeling angry at herself for getting so caught up at a party, and another time when she saw her friends struggling at the beginning of a relationship. 

Abi’s current following is a testament to her immediate success, with her debut headline gig at Warrington’s 200 capacity Lounge selling out well before the night.

Ryan of Little King- Chats with the Freak FACEBOOK:   The Rock and Roll band Little King was formed in November of 1996 by guitarist/singer/songwriter Ryan Rosoff in El Paso, Texas. Rosoff had cut his teeth as the guitar player in the seminal eclectic rock group Tweed Quickly (where he met future Little King bassist Shannon Brady). After a year in that band, he had written enough of his own songs to try his hand at recording and producing a record. Rosoff named the new group Little King (a translation of the name "Ryan" in Gaelic). Featuring bassist Mike Esparza and drummer Alex Lizarazo, the trio played a few shows locally and regionally in the next four months while preparing to enter the studio. Little King's first demo CD, titled Transmountain, was released in El Paso in May on 1997. The group continued to tour and promote the CD, which sold about 800 copies in and around the Southwest.

Shawn of American Dream Machine and Rabid Flesh Eaters- Chats with the Freak

Rabid Flesh Eaters- After over 30 years of a brotherhood founded on the searing fire of classic metal bands like Black

Sabbath, Motörhead, Slayer, and Rigor Mortis, the aggressive foaming at the mouth sonic assault of

the R.F.E. is more relentless than ever.

R.F.E.’s eight vicious new tracks are stronger and achieve heavier, faster heights than anything they’ve

released before. With developed dynamics, extreme tightness, and a heart pounding impact this band has

clearly evolved since their last album, 2016’s Reign of Terror. Beyond setting new standards for today’s

speed metal genre, this record is a visceral homage to their longtime friends, Texas metal legends Rigor

Mortis - drummer Harden Harrison, bassist Casey Orr, and their fallen brothers, guitarist Mike Scaccia

(1965-2012) and vocalist Bruce Corbitt (1962-2019).


AMERICAN DREAM MACHINE has dropped “Bad News,” the infectious first single from the

modern rockers’ debut album, Deadhearts, due for release on June 26.
