Speaking of Arctic Monkeys………….I have heard the chatter on Arctic Monkeys. Hyped bands don’t often live up to the chatter (i.e. Block Party).

Under the influence of Giants such as The Beatles, The Bee Gees, The Who and Led Zeppelin, the southern California rock band called Under The Influence of Giants seem to have found the right combination for writing modern classics. The bands latest EP, called ‘Mama’s Room’ was produced by former Blind Melon members, Chris Thorn and Brad Smith. Under The Influence Of Giants have been making a name for themselves throughout southern California, drawing over 500 at their shows and getting airplay on Indie 103 with their single ‘Mamas Room.’ The strength of their songs alongside the strength of their determination have been capturing the eyes and ears of many majors. The band will be performing June 9th at the Viper Room in LA and July 8th at The Roxy.
