Jakye Orvis & The Broken Band
Rhino Bucket (USA)
Formed in Van Nuys, CA, in 1987 by Finnish-born transplant Georg Dolivo (Bon Scott-cloned vocals and guitar), lead guitarist Greg Fields, bassist Reeve Downes, and drummer Liam Jason, Rhino Bucket perfectly replicated AC/DC's raw, three-chord boogie to perfection on their self-titled debut album. But while they were quickly embraced by the U.K. and European press, the band was faced with nothing but apathy and scorn in America, where they were pegged as rip-off artists and received little promotional support from their label. Despite the inclusion of one of its tracks, "Ride With Yourself," in Mike Myers' popular Wayne's World movie, their aptly titled second album, 1992's Get Used to It, also failed to make any headway, and the band was soon unceremoniously dropped by Reprise. Still they soldiered on, and in an ironic twist of fate, recruited former AC/DC skin-pounder Simon Wright to replace the departed Liam Jason for their third album, 1994's independently released Pain. Rhino Bucket finally called it a day the following year, but eventually re-formed in 2001 with plans to record a new album. Interestingly, the new lineup included original drummer Liam Jason, billed as Jackie Enx following sexual reassignment surgery. After a lengthy hiatus, the group returned in 2006 with And Then It Got Ugly.

Plastic Man (ITA) / Helikopteri (D)
Plastic Man are an italian psych band formed in 2012. Influenced by beat, psychedelic, nuggets compilations and late 60's music in general, the band from Florence (Raffaele - guitar and lead vocals - ,William - guitar and backing vocals - , Mattia - bass guitar and backing vocals -, , Giacomo - drums -) mixes retrò and modern styles producing songs with a neo-psychedelic flavour. Their music involves also other elements like acid rock, surf, progressive,garage punk and stoner. The effects on voice and guitar, such as tremolo, fuzz, delay and reverb, reveal their aim: reproducing a fresh, natural,genuine and up-to-date psych sound. Plastic Man's first release is a 4 track EP in vinyl produced by Misty Lane (November 2013). After over a year of live shows in Italy and a tour in France (April 2014), the band's debut album ("Don't Look At The Moon") is realesed in March 2015 on Black Candy Records.
The debut album came out on March 2015 via Black Candy Rds. After that the band keep on touring all along Italy for the whole year. At the beginning of 2016 the band lineup changes again, and starts touring Europe crossing Germany, France, Switzerland, England, Belgium and Holland. At the end of the same year the band is back in studio to record the second album, which is released on April 2017 via Annibale Records.
