Bon Harris, co-frontman of cult electronic act Nitzer Ebb, has
reemerged with his new band Maven. The group features Harris on
vocals / keyboards, Ethyl Meatplow's Biff Sanders on drums and
guitarist Andy Troy (Polarbear).
Maven formed in Los Angeles (where Harris relocated to from
Chicago and his native London) in 2001, a result of Harris
desire to stretch his songwriting skills and use his voice for
the first time. He came up with the material over a period of
several years, in between lengthy studio stints with Marilyn
Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins. Some of the Maven tracks were
recorded in Chicago, while Harris was working with Corgan and
producer Bjorn Thorsrud (Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols).
Others were written and recorded in Los Angeles and at Thorsruds
studio in Salt Lake City. > page 2
