-(58)- The Internet Band
The concept Nikki Sixx (of Motley Crue fame) had in mind when he formed -(58)- was of a non-touring, internet promoted entity that would feature on his new record label, Americoma Records. The name of the band stemmed from the year 1958, in which both Nikki Sixx and David Darling were born.
The sound, as exemplified on the band's one and only CD released in early 2000, was a self-described mixture of "glam, hip hop, rock, pop, funk and a car crash."
A review by Jeff Bud charged, "58 is a more an eclectic rock project that’s ready to take on the music scene in the year 2000. Lyrically, things border on the political, while the musical landscape is a mixed bag. Progressive, dance, industrial, funk, and the blues, all rear their heads out of a pot filled with rock."
