Born in 1978, Jens Berents Christiansen is the man behind Rumpistol. He likes to work in the crossfield between melody based pop music and experimental sounds, but always maintains his characteristic warm sound. With great influences from dub he delivers an interesting take on electronica, click-hop and downbeat. Rumpistol’s self-titled debut album was released in 2003 on Rump Recordings, and he has played many concerts in Denmark and abroad since then. Festivals like Fusion, Norberg, Ekko, ADE, and Public Service should be mentioned as well as different concerts at as different places as Mexico and the Baltic countries. Furthermore, he has done remixes and appeared on a split-EP released by the small Danish label, Auditory Designs, as well as on different compilations. As a musician, Jens Berents Christiansen has a background in the band Magtværk, where he played guitar, synths, and sang, but since he left the band in the year 2000, he has been concentrating on the Rumpistol project.

The sounds of Goddamn Electric Bill were never meant to leave Jason Torbert’s bedroom. But the one-man band, a propulsive blend of ambient electronic and post-rock music, made its way out to the world anyway.
In its short lifetime, Goddamn Electric Bill has already been nominated for a San Diego Music Award, created a stir in the MySpace musical community, released a debut full-length called Swallowed by the Machines on 99X/10 Records (run by former Cure keysman Roger O’Donnell) and been featured in San Diego CityBEAT and Music Matters Magazine. But Torbert isn’t new to the musical arena.
Torbert’s suburban childhood was spent learning violin and trombone before he took off for University of Oregon, where he studied ethnomusicology. It was at University of Oregon that Torbert began his seven-year stint as the bassist for a popular punk outfit called Cigar. The band eventually signed to a label run by Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge and toured internationally before calling it quits. He tried his luck at a few other projects, including one band that recorded with At The Drive-In/Sparta drummer Tony Hajjar and signed to Sparta frontman Jim Ward’s label, Restart Records, but Torbert quickly figured out that the band life wasn’t for him.
It was the sounds Torbert made on his own – from bass, guitar, keys, Rhodes, sitar, mbira, percussion and bagpipes – that turned into Goddamn Electric Bill. And it is those sounds that Slug Magazine called “jaw-dropping cinematic tracks” and Rip It Up Magazine called “uplifting in both mood and subtlety.” And it is those sounds that continue to cause a stir.

Schengen consists of Nick, Ian, and “non-playing Helen.” Nick, who also records as “Jelly Antler” and “Cep,” was previously a member of Bovine Slug; while Ian, also known as “Markinch vs the Clouds,” was formerly associated with Blind Panic and Mule. What they describe as “a shared love of electronica, reverb, analogue synths” is manifested in the complex and varied electronic music to be found on their initial 2006 Make Mine Music album The Beijing of Our Career, subsequent EP’s ep (MMM), EP+ (an expanded version of ep) and Nyplex ep, and 2008’s Ce Gil album (Distant Music).
