The Iscariots are a 4-piece reggae band from Chattanooga, TN specializing in booty-shaking electro-rock reggae with a pop flair.
The band is made up by Jesse "Ganja James" Jungkurth (guitar, vocals), Adrian Lajas (bass, vocals), Brett Nolan (keyboards) and Ivan Garcia (drums, vocals). They met while playing with local legends Milele Roots and formed a fast friendship. Years after they had all left Milele to pursue other musical endeavors, they decided to come together to play reggae again-- with a more modern twist. They have played together in several groups for six years and have formed an almost telepathic tightness and an inexhaustible catalogue of covers from which they can pull at a whim.
BEHOLD THE BRAVE
sprung out of the mountains of tennessee, we, behold the
brave, want to share our good spirits with anyone willing to
listen. we find joy in creating music; music that guides you
down an energetic yet relaxing wave of noise; music that
evokes a brave & creative new perspective on life.
PLVNET is the new embodiment of the "universal song". It has been heard in many forms, with many names. It has always been and will be. It only comes at times when humanity is in great need and often pioneers the great shifts in the music paradigm. Friends, that time is once again upon us. This most recent incarnation of the universal song has chosen Curtis Anthony (Low Frequency), Wes Hartman (Chant/Voice), Red Souther (Pulse), Nathanimal Luttrell (Mid and High Frequencies) who was voted as Chattanooga's Best Guitarist 2009 at the FYI music awards. and James "DJ Kid Saturn" Wood (Sonic Ear Candy) to usher in the sounds of the new world. PLVNET's prolific, in your face brand of electronic/organic rock is loaded with the message that sometimes you have to burn everything to the ground in order to start anew and it's followers are those people that have matches and a mind to use them. Planet draws it's influences from these previous couriers of the song: Radiohead, Deftones, David Bowie, Beethoven, Pink Floyd, Silverchair, Led Zeppelin, Incubus, Muse, Weezer, Roy Orbison and many others.
