Nomoredolls are a female fronted cutting edge band from Milan, Italy, with an astounding live experience.
A combination of No Doubt, Cardigans and the earlier Alanis with a great rock attitude, taking no
prisoners at their shows.
Their reputation is growing over the years, leading them to cross the ocean and perform on the East Coast
and NYC area. Since December 2003, they successfully completed four USA tours playing main clubs like
CBGB’s, Knitting Factory Main Stage and Piano’s in NYC and TT’s The Bear in Boston.
Culturedose.net rated the band as one of the Top 7 indie acts in the Usa of 2003, in their New Year first
column, without even an album out yet.
In July 2004 the band released nationally their single/EP “The Green Ep” (N3/Self), produced in London
by Matthew Fagg, and toured the UK with shows at Scala and 12BarClub in London. The Ep got airplay in
many American East Coast college radios (WSBC and WCFJ, XM Satellite Radio, etc.). In Italy, Gq Magazine
featured them in a Tour Diary style column and photographed the band in the April and November issues.
Their blend of modern Alternative, Indie Rock, and bittersweet Pop can be heard on their self-titled
debut, released 4/29/05 (N3/Self) and produced by LA based Fab V. Zee Grossi (Glenn Huges, Ice T, Steve
Vai, Toto, etc.).
Love Hates Lois
Hailing from a large building in Astoria, Queens: A Guitar & Voice named Dom Spaleta and his little yet
taller Bassy brother named Steve Spaleta. From a home just down the road from the brothers' Spaleta is a
guitar and its possessor, soulfully named Chris of the Ugolini clan. The shadow cast by the musical force
created by these three individuals working as one created bands such as Inadaze and Smoking Cactus in the
late 20th Century. The Rise of the 21st Century brought change to the universe and the discovery and
rediscovery of friendship. Under the shell of Manhattan, through a gash in time, in the year 2003, wielding
2 mighty clubs and his skins, Russ Stopek emerged. Last but certainly not least, the energy that drove them
all to the this place they call home, a voice from the past time warped to the present, Carla G. from
Queens on lead vocals. Five minds working as one to create the hard rockin', guitar screachin', bass
poppin', drum stompin', melodical, harmonical sound that is most certainly their own!
Love Hates Lois' energy is felt searing through its crowd, scorches the stage and leaves you wanting
more. Ceilings and rooves have been known to crack and fall through the raw power, excitement and
emotion left on that stage! You don't want to miss LOVE HATE LOIS kicking off this year's MEDUSA FESTIVAL
IV on Friday, June 24th!

Melinda Bardos – vocals and acoustic guitar
Leighton Haniff - lead and rhythm electric guitars
Rodney Ledbetter – drums
Oren Bayone – bass
Imago is a NYC based female fronted modern rock band. What makes Imago stand out from the rest is their
ability to fuse dynamics, melody and emotionalism into hard-hitting beats and guitar riffs.
Imago formed when singer/songwriter Melinda Bardos met Leighton Haniff, an accomplished drummer and
guitarist in the NYC music scene. Melinda rehearsed an acoustic set at a local music studio, and Leighton
took a liking to her emotionally intense and raw style. They began co-writing and within months the duo
created a plethora of unique and contemporary songs.
Leighton worked ideally as Imago’s front guitarist and he brought in the talented Rodney Ledbetter on
drums. The three discovered that rare music chemistry which inevitably leaves a mark in this vast world
Soon afterward, Rodney brought in Oren Bayone on bass, and his presence added the carefree and heavy
bottom end that Imago needed to complete its sound.

"Devola sets itself apart from what has become typical of NYC bands - the Strokes-esque guitar-heavy
band with a barely sober lead singer mumbling incoherent lyrics into the mic. What strikes me about Devola
is how they've paired bass-driven jazzy music with electrifying opera-esque vocals. The band experiments
with eccentricity in "False", a song that highlights singer Elizabeth Seward's soul-searching
vocals. "Under Attack" gives off a jazzier ambience, transporting the listener to a hip
underground café where one can just groove to the music and unwind. Check out Devola if you're looking for
a local band with more substance and individuality than the dozens of mediocre ensembles throwing together
gigs last minute in this city." -Shawna Adams, Cityzen Entertainment
"There is no known cure for The Devola Virus. Say your prayers." -Tim Connoly
Some bands have 'got it', while other bands simply...do not. DEVOLA has definitely got it-the right idea,
that is. The band has been in existence a little over a year, yet they are somehow headlining shows at
some of the most well-known rock venues NYC has to offer. Their enthusiastic nation-wide street-team is
multiplying each and every day. National corporations, such as Guitar Center, are not only supporting the
band, but helping to distribute their cds. With their unique sound and intense lyrics, DEVOLA is generating
a buzz almost too fast to keep up with. Given their incredible and increasing popularity, it's no wonder
they compare their music to a virus-one that is infecting the scene rather rapidly, at that. DEVOLA has
only one thing to ask of you regarding their nasty little virus- HAVE YOU GOT IT?
"I'm not sure I know what a ghost orgy would be like but this band is excellent. Musically they go
way beyond typical. They encompass doom, traditional, and gothic metal - actually capturing an original
sound." - Transcending the Mundane
"Ghost Orgy may look like a gothed up nu-metal bunch, but this quartet offers up a bewitching brew
of disparate sensibilities. Piling crunch metal atop a mutant form of swamp rock - snake like GO craft
constantly coiling songs, fittingly fronted by the serpentine, Gitane Demone-esque vox of Dina Concina."
"Dina Concina's vocals are wickedly captivating; her voice is one of temptation, making you want
more but giving you the feeling that something evil is lurking in the background. Goth/metal played with
a bigger crunch than Lacuna Coil." - Live 4 Metal
"Ghost Orgy are one of the few great bands out there." - Steppin' Out
