50 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 7 - March 13, 1997 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out Carbon 14 CD release slated for Sir-Guy's March 7 By Jen Ellingsworth Local rockers Carbon 14 will release their latest effort, a collab- oration CD known as the Riktor/Carbon 14 Project, at Sir Guy's in Rehoboth Beach on Fri- day, March 7. Produced under independent recording label Azra International, the material on the disc is as kinet- ic as the life forms it is performed by. The release features the tracks "Photo Realist," "Life Exists," and "No Gravity." The CD features lead vocals by California theatrical performer and vocalist Riktor, as well as Car- bon 14 bass guitar player Steve Wallo, lead guitarist Ray Moret- ton and drummer Sonny Martin. Formed six years ago, Carbon 14 also recently added lead singer Todd Bender to its troupe. The vocals were recorded at Fortress II Studios in Hollywood, while the music was recorded in Lewes at the band's digital record- ing facility. The CD will be nationally dis- tributed to stores such as Tower Records and Rhino Records, as well as to college radio markets. In addition, the group has also hired the services of Milestone Media, a company who will pro- mote the CD to major recording labels. The disc will be available local- ly at the CD Outlet Store and Tobacco Shop in the Food Lion Plaza in Rehoboth Beach, at Thompson's Music in Lewes and at all Carbon 14 concerts. Fittingly enough, it's not the first time the band has received national attention. Carbon 14 was selected from thousands of demo tapes to be a part of the 1991 compilation release, "Raw Cuts XII," produced by Rodell Records of Hollywood. Adam Rodell, president of the company, chose to showcase the band after listening to the CD "Songs From the Cellar." Carbon 14 met Riktor through the process of recording the com- pilation effort, and the rest is his- tory. Carbon 14 is also putting the wraps on an independent effort, due out sometime soon. The CD is tentatively titled "Carbonet.'" "It's sort of our vintage of songs from the past five or six years," said Wallo. The tracks were com- pleted at the band's own Lewes recording studio, and then sent out to Azra for completion. Wallo said the 15-16 tracks on the CD are all originals written between 1989-1997. Carbon 14 has gigs locally in April and May at the Crab Barn in Long Neck and at Seaford's Club 22. The group will also play at Petitbon's in Rosslyn, Va., for the annual "Dewey Animals Benefit Concert." For more information about Carbon 14, call 645-7474. In other entertainment news...
