Combining countless influences, but focusing on ska, punk and reggae, the Streetlight boys command a sound all their own. What happens when groove-laden reggae and frenetic rock meet a violin sonata at a house party? The answer is ZOX, an emerging foursome from Providence, RI, whose unique blend of rock, reggae, punk and classical has begun to shake up clubs and colleges across New England. Dan Potthast is the frontman for ska band MU330.
Carbon/Silicon features punk veterans Mick Jones (The Clash, Big Audio Dynamite) and Tony James (Generation X, Sigue Sigue Sputnik). The project started several years ago when Jones and James began recording music and putting it out via their Web site on a monthly basis. The digital-only EPs and albums became popular enough that by 2004, the partnership grew to a full band. The lineup was settled in 2006 when Jones and James were joined by Leo !E-zee-Kill' Williams (Big Audio Dynamite, Dreadzone) on bass guitar and Dominic Greensmith (Reef) on drums. Their debut album is 'The Last Post.'
