Per- forming covers from bands includ- ing Pearl Jam, Bush, R.E.M., U2, Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana, Carbon 14 packs quite a punch with locals and visitors alike. But the band isn't all about covers. In fact, said bassist Steve Wallo, much of the band's material is original. The name of the band is derived from the Carbon 14 process used in carbon date testing of archeo- logical materials, he said. "Basically, we experiment with rock," he said. "We're kind of like the chemists. Carbon 14 is an organic, living thing found in every material. It ties in with what we're doing. A lot of our material is politically and environmentally slanted." Wallo said the band prefers to promote its original music more than its covers, but enjoys per- forming the cover tunes at all their gigs. "It's been a really unique situa- tion," he said. "Everything's gelled." The band was formed six years ago by Wallo, guitarist Ray Moretton and drummer Sonny Martin.

"He has a lot BENDER of stage pres- ence. He's taking our cover mate- rial to a new level." Carbon 14 has played gigs at "local venues on a regular basis for six years. Its next local perfor- mance will be at the Rose & Crown in Lewes on Wednesday, Jan. 8. The group was named one of the Best Bands on the Beach by 93.5 WZBH radio station last year, appeared on the Sessions music video program at Cornerstone Media Production studios in Georgetown, and has also gained exposure on radio station 106.9. The Sessions video is currently for sale at all the band's shows, said Wallo. He said the band is cur- rently exploring the possibility of a record label. 'q'he videos we shot turned out together a video demo tape, which enabled us to take the band to another level. We're knocking on the door at this point." The band recently recorded 15 new songs, he said, and is working with independent label Azra for a full Carbon 14 release sometime soon. The group is also working on a collaboration project with south- ern California singer-songwriter Riktor, under an independent label.
