Palmyra Delran and the Doppel Gang
As the co-founder, songwriter and creative soul of “trashy pop band” The Friggs, Palmyra Delran built a working model for the ideal punk girl group. The Friggs’ debut CD Rock Candy, was a critically lauded and commercially viable albums. Opening for the Selecter, the Ramones, the Fleshtones, and Cheap Trick among others, The Friggs toured incessantly throughout the ‘90s. Their songs were also included in the movies Superbad, Jawbreaker, Lipstick & Dynamite, and Prey for Rock & Roll.

On her first solo debut EP titled She Digs the Ride, Palmyra flirts with charm, surf rock, dysfunctional relationships, and solid guitar grooves described as “that fried Yardbirdstone mixed with early Stooges grime and oopsy-daisy pop”. Palmyra's song “Baby Should Have Known Better” was picked by Little Steven as the «Coolest Song in the World» in November 2008, and voted «Coolest Song of 2008» by Underground Garage listeners. It was even featured on the show’s CD compilation, The Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 8, via Wicked Cool Records.

A digital single and video “Lies For You” was released in late 2010. Palmyra then toured Scandinavia backed by Swedish band Stupidity, playing shows with Norwegian gals The Cocktail Slippers in March of 2011.

2012 saw the release of punk rock kids CD called KinderAngst, a collaboration with NYC songwriter Rachelle Garniez, and features a special appearance from Debbie Harry.

Digital single “You’re My Brian Jones” was released in Sept 2012, and followed up with a full length album You Are What You Absorb in March of 2013. It was recorded by Craig Dreyer at Mighty Toad Studio Brooklyn, and mixed by Geoff Sanoff at Stratosphere Sound Studio NYC, & INTL HQ Brooklyn. Palmyra is joined by KinderAngst collaborator Rachelle Garniez on Farfisa, Hammond B3, Harpsichord, Michael Lynch on bass, Mark Brotter on drums, Richard Devgreene on guitar, as well as guest backup singers the Cocktail Slippers, Betsy Todd, & Jenifer Jackson.

Following the release of You Are What You Absorb, Little Steven selected the next two singles — «Shy Boy», and «Some Day Soon» as Coolest Songs in the World for February & May of 2013. She then hopped a plane for her second tour of Scandinavia backed again by Stupidity, and this time, joined by Keith Streng of the Fleshtones on guitar. The year ended with Little Steven adding You Are What You Absorb as number 3 to his top 20 albums of 2013.

Palmyra also works with a band in Los Angeles — Bubble Gun (John Carlucci, Laura Carlucci, Michelle Balderrama, & Rikki Styxx) for yearly west coast tours and recording projects. The first single, one original song written with John & Laura Carlucci, and a cover song duet with Kim Shattuck, of the Muffs and the second was an original written by Palmyra & guitarist Michelle Balderrama, “No Time Like Never” (which was also chosen as Coolest Song in the World), plus a duet with Mighty Manfred from The Woggles.

Currently, Delran hosts her own radio show «Palmyra's Trash-Pop Shindig» in Little Steven's Underground Garage on Sunday mornings (8am-noon EST) with a repeat show on Monday morning (4am-8am EST) on SiriusXM radio.

The GTVs
After Philadelphia garage rock heroes Mondo Topless finally called it a day in 2011, keyboard man and group leader Sam Steinig wasted no time launching a new project, and the GTVs show he's taken his love of cool sounds from the past and headed out in a new direction. On their debut album, Sh'Bang!, released by Teen Sound Records, the GTVs start with the raunchy guitars and booming drums of vintage garage rock and fuse them with classic soul and R&B influences, with Steinig making like Booker T. Jones, Alan Price, or Felix Cavaliere on the Hammond organ as the group writes hard-grooving tunes like «Left Me on the Corner» and «Mind the Gap.» While folks who have followed Steinig's work in the past will recognize his stamp on this music, the GTVs are clearly a band and not just someone's backing crew.

Baltimore vinyl imprint Hidden Volume released a 7" single in early 2016 (Organ Donor b/w Here's a Thing), an all-instrumental release recorded in mono by James Everhart and Will Donnelly, members of Low Cut Connie.

The latest incarnation of the band (Patrick Crowling: Bass, Ron Wandover: Drums, and Vince Duane: Guitar) can hold down the backbeat, heat up the dancefloor, or push these songs into high gear as the situation demands. Folks who dug Mondo Topless will certainly find lots to like in the GTVs, but if you're down with the retro-soul scene or just dig R&B-flavored music that will let you wind it up on the dancefloor, you should put The GTVs on your shopping list pronto.
