Videos From Purgatory #43: Relentless 7 - Shimmer & Shine

Well known for his long history of pop, folk and acoustic songs with his group Innocent Criminals, it appears that Ben Harper has a brand new project - a Rock Band called Relentless 7 who manage to have a both a fresh and retro sound at the same time - IMO a bit like R.E.M. but with some balls.

Here's an Interview with the band by

I have to hope the group well, but looking at the long history of a projects like this - even with Ben's existing notoriety - I have to expect it won't be long before the industry chase him right back onto the Pop Plantation. I might be wrong, the group might make it to their second CD - but if they didn't already have Ben long history behind them, I really don't think they'd be anywhere near where they are already, or would have an ice cube's chance in death valley of surviving.
