(1988 – present)

There are at least 13 artists with the name Arc

0. A heavy/melodic prog band from the UK who released the critically acclaimed album At This in 1971.

1. The most profilic would be the Toronto-based trio of Aidan Baker (Nadja) (guitars, woodwinds, voices), Richard Baker (drumset, emboura, percussion), and Christopher Kukiel (djembe, tabla, dumbec, percussion). Over 14 releases are out.

2. Nu Jazz duo Dean Smith and Darren Knott (a producer associated with Coldcut) whose track Arcane appeared on Ninja Tune’s Xen Cuts compilation.

3. ARC is the recording alias of electronica staples Mark Shreeve and DiN label boss Ian Boddy, a duo who have been working together for almost a decade. The two producers bring very different elements to the table: Boddy mans all things digital, running a variety of synthesizers in conjunction with software, while Shreeve brings an analogue presence, sequencing via a vast Moog Modular system.

4. A Japanese visual kei band (alternate tag: Arc), formed in 2003 and signed to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. Members are: Ko~Ji (Vo.), Yuki (Gu.), Toshiya (Ba.), Shun (Dr.)

At their December 18th live, Arc announced that, after 7 years of activity, they will be disbanding in March of 2011.

5. A legendary act of the era. The band released one 7’’ single in 1980, Tribute, and another one 1981, War of the Ring.

    I prefer the UK (heavy progressive rock) band !!! The album (At This - 1971) is awesome... with excellent bass, guitars and keyboards. If you like the sound from that time and place... you need to know it.

    Hello friends! I'm Mike Winchester of WMRI. I want to invite you to my recent reissues of two epic Berlin School EM albums from 2010. They were available only on CD, but now they are officially free for download as web-releases on our label USC. Here's the links: The Source of Universal Energy | Etherworlds.

    The NWOBHM band who wrote War Of The Ring has just mailed me a promo photo of the band from 1981. I have uploaded it and everyone should vote it up.
