(1) Black Sun, from Glasgow, UK:

Black Sun as ‘Black Sun Machine’ was formed in Glasgow as a solo side project initially in the demise of the 20th Century by Russell McEwan. McEwan felt he had served his time with über-rockers and was feeling the need to explore his own songwriting capabilities after many years solely on the drums. McEwan was joined by Guitarist/Vocalist Kevin Hare of Glasgow stoners ‘Lotus Lounge’ around the embryonic stages of Black Sun’s first album ‘Fleshmarket,’ released to critical acclaim on London’s Over Records. ‘Fleshmarket’ was constructed from loops and samples of McEwan and Hare on an ancient Pentium P90 PC. Soon after the release of this album McEwan moved back to the live drum kit and Graeme Leggate joined the band on Bass guitar. Black Sun spent a long time in the practice room in order to perfect their sound for the live environment. They also began writing their second album. As Leggate became a bass player, Black Sun became a band. Another release (Circus of the Fallen) was followed by the full-time recruitment of Guitar player Kerr Robin.
