PRESS RELEASES

Inga Brittingham, singer of NAKED BEGGARS and wife of CINDERELLA/NAKED BEGGARS bassist Eric Brittingham, has issued the following update:

"It's been a rough week. I wanted to finally share what we have been through. Eric suffered a mild heart attack last week. We are slowly getting through this period. Even through all of this healing time the rest of the band is continuing to write for the third album."
NAKED BEGGARS' upcoming CD will be the group's first since the addition of drummer Lisa Rav, who is described in a press release as "the best rock drummer rock has seen in a long time. . . Lisa brings tremendous talent and new possibilities to the band. In addition to her drumming skills and experience, she is an accomplished vocalist. She is a hard-hitting, visual performer who we feel is a perfect fit for us."

REVIEWS

THE HEDRONS ‘Heatseeker’ (CDS 2007) Measured Records www.thehedrons.com

Their main claim to fame so far is that they performed the first UKI band to play a virtual gig via MySpace. Not sure how many watched it but with all the hype over MySpace and You Tube it would be a sizeable audience I am sure. This new single is a decent enough guitar led tune although nothing special but sure to get their brief spotlight on the likes of XFM and in NME.
