The Anderson Brothers

The Anderson Brothers

An interview with Madison rock trio, The Anderson Brothers
by Mike Huberty
August 2016

First time I saw The Anderson Brothers was a summer weeknight at The Frequency and I was there for the earlier show, so I didn’t know who was playing later. But as I was sitting at the bar with a group of friends, we kept hearing their music from the other room and started getting curious about all this sonic ass-kicking coming from the other side of the club. I was blown away watching them, tight melodic rock music influenced by classic Rock, they played a Zep cover and even though I’d heard it a thousand times in my life, they did it with the energy and excitement that you feel when you first play a song that you love. Bassist Brian Anderson, his brother Eric on guitar and vocals, and Cole Dockter on drums form the band. We talked with Eric about their upcoming show in Madison on August 13th at The Frequency.

Anew Revolution

Anew Revolution

An interview with bassist Frankie Salvaggio
by Tina Hall
September 2010

Anew Revolution is made up of Joey Duenas (Vocals/Guitar), Frank “Frankie” Salvaggio (Bass/Backing Vocals), Rob Urbani (Drums), and Jay Frederick (Guitar). They have toured alongside acts like 12 Stones, Hell Yeah, Volbeat, Kittie, Sevendust, Hed PE, and Drowning Pool. The latest release iMerica is out now on E1 records and the band will be at Scatz in Middleton on November 5th and the Eagles Club in Milwaukee on November 6th.

Maximum Ink: There isn’t much about Anew Revolution out there. Can you tell us a little about your background? Where you are from, how it influenced you musically?
Frank Salvaggio: Anew Revolution is made up of myself & Rob from Montreal, Canada, Joey is from Austin, Texas and Jay is from Ventura, California. Personally I’m influenced from some great rock/metal bands that came to Montreal like Metallica, Motley Crue, Guns n’ Roses, Iron Maiden, The Cult, Deftones.Watching those bands live was like an awakening for me and highly inspired me to be the musician I am.

MI: When did you first take up bass? Why?
FS: I took up bass when I was 13 years. It was summertime and my buddy wanted to start a band. He was of course the guitar player and I opted for the bass because I thought it would be a interesting, different instrument to play.

MI: Where does the name Anew Revolution come from? How did they come up with the name?
FS: Joey, Rob and I we’re trying to think of a bold, strong name, and we thought of “Revolution”, but that seemed too simple. So we said, hey we’re all from past bands and we’re starting all over again with this band so it’s like starting “Anew” so we said, “Anew Revolution”.

ANGELS OR INSECTS 2015

After 15 years, AOI is getting back together
by Mike Huberty
September 2015

Buried underneath that morass of backwards baseball caps, bands with deejays, and walking erection macho posturing at the turn of the century, an industrial movement was brewing. The tracks and loops and synths that we expect today from mainstream rock bands like MUSE and 30 SECONDS TO MARS all started with the brave acts who would bring massive keyboards and digital samplers onstage when you couldn’t just use blast backing tracks through your iPhone.  And in the Madison rock scene at the time, no other industrial metal act was bringing as many people to clubs or building more of a buzz than ANGELS OR INSECTS.

With one foot in bubblegum and one foot in rock, ANNA WANG AND THE OH BOYS! is unabashed good-time music, straightforward, fun, and deliriously catchy. Lead vocalist and songwriter, Anna Wang, is a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin and ready to take on the world with her “Oh Boys”- bassist Jeff Funk, guitarist Jeremy Van Mill, and (not so boyish) Nicky Sund on drums. They’re celebrating the release of a brand new EP, Drive Fast (currently available for listening on their website, www.annawangandtheohboys.com), with a big party at The Frequency in Madison on February 3rd.

Another Lost Year

Another Lost Year


by Tina Hall
July 2013

Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina the band Another Lost Year has already gained quite a following. Comprised of Clinton Cunanan, Adam Hall, David Whitaker, Lee Norris, and Jason Lovelace, ALY offer up alternative metal in a way seldom seen in today’s music scene. They have opened for the likes of Hinder, Seven Dust, Skid Row, Candlebox, Pop Evil, and Nonpoint just to name a few.  Their latest single “The War on the Inside” was produced by Justin Rimer (12 Stones, Breaking Point) and offers fans a glimpse at what the newest album “Writing on the Wall” has to offer. Fans can catch them in the WI area July 11th at Club Tavern and Jefferson, WI at the Rox Sports Bar on July 17th.

Maximum Ink: What was it like growing up in North Carolina? What were you like as a child?
Clinton Cunanan: NC is humid, and I loathe humidity. As a child, I was always a good kid, I grew up on a horse farm, my weekends were not all fun and games, I played baseball, that was the only thing that could get me out of the manual labor. Basically the same now, mouthy, said what was on my mind, you know normal kid crap.

Interview with Another Lost Year
by Laura Sorensen
January 2016

The rock music band Another Lost Year out of Charlotte, N.C. may not be a household name for everyone who follows the genre of rock, but they have no shortage of devoted fans who know exactly who they are. Their fan base extends all across the country but like a lot of other rock musicians, the Midwest is particularly welcoming to their music. While the band’s last performance in Madison, WI was at the Taste of Madison sponsored by WJJO in 2013, they have covered multiple venues in other areas of Wisconsin as well as Iowa and Illinois. I had an opportunity to meet with the lead singer Clinton Cunanan before their performance at the Apollo Theater in Belvedere, IL last month. Other members of the band include Adam Hall (bass/vocals) , Jorge Sotomarino (guitar, vocals), and Nathan Walker (drums, vocals). Following is some insight Clinton shared with me about the band.
