Blue Remedy
'Imagine the minds of Pink Floyd, The Wipers, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Sonic Youth molded into a strange hybrid brew.' That's how Blue Remedy likes to describe their sound, and hopefully their music lives up to their expectations. Almost named Sonic Tangerine by founders Todd Lilje and Danielle Sottosanti, Blue Remedy is the band's hope for merging the music of the distant and recent past into a new sound, hopefully a new rock. Their musical tastes are certainly diverse enough. Danielle Sottosanti (vocals & guitar) names bands ranging from The Wipers to The Smashing Pumpkins in her listening list. Related to Felix Cavaliere of The Young Rascals, she also hopes to merge some of the '60s utopianist feel with the nihilism of the '90s. Brian Wieber (bass) is classic rock all the way. He admires bands like Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones, and he can certainly rock as hard as the masters. Drummer Aaron Wootton is the punk element of the band, and also has a resume worthy of any great rock drummer. He's been in noteworthy British punk bands like Yellow Skin and Metamorphosis, and has the drumming skills to prove it. After Todd left the band, Blue Remedy remained strong and has become an emerging figure in the Tucson scene.
