CD Review: Consumer Republic “Manifesto”

While it was in 2012 that the last Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony took place in Cleveland, it was back in 2009 that the Rock Hall city was awarded its first Induction Ceremony since the initial Cleveland Induction Ceremony back in 1997. That year, the city of Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame went all out to make the event as special as possible for that year’s induction class and Induction Ceremony attendees alike.

The week leading up to the 2009 induction featured many fun events to take in within the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and around the city of Cleveland itself. One main event that took place was the free day of music that happened within the Rock Hall itself. It was on that day that Cleveland got to experience three bands which included The Consumer Republic, the winner of 2008 Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands. It was on that day of April 4th, 2009 that every person in attendance at the Rock Hall for the free day of music got to experience the power and talent of Fortune Magazine’s “Best Corporate Band in the World”.

Lost Without Cause Talk Influences, Bankrupt Labels and Aspirations

Lost Without CauseLost Without Cause are an Alternative Rock, three piece outfit hailing from Watford, Herts, UK. They have been playing together since their formation in 2004, and so far have played well over 200 gigs with the likes of My Passion, Saving Aimee, Fei Comodo, Koopa, The Runners and Linchpin.

To give you a little background information on Lost Without Cause: in 2007 the band was selected by MTV as part of their new talent initiative program, which involved a live performance and an interview which aired on MTV2 throughout April, May and June 2007. In July 2007 they visited and recorded a live session in the world famous Maida Vale Studios, and in November 2007, after progressing to the 3rd round of an International Battle of the Bands, were invited to play at the London Astoria 2. The gig was a massive success and the band progressed onto the 4th round where they once again played the London Astoria 2. In July 2008 they were selected by Bon Jovi from over 400 acts as one of the Top 20 bands with the chance to support them at their Twickenham show. Unfortunately, after an online vote, they narrowly missed out.
