Cassio Audi, Playing Fire As A Heavy Metal Drummer

Early on in his music career, Cassio Audi played drums as a member of the Rock group, Viper. Viper released two full albums, from 1985-1987, entitled, Soldiers of Sunrise and The Killera Sword. They also had a demo album in 1985, Project SP Metal. The genre in which Viper excelled was Metal and as a group, they were well regarded by the public. Their most popular single was a punk version of “I Fought the Law,” in 1995.

Cassio Audi’s playing style was influenced by the American heavy metal scene happening in the 80s. He was regarded as a straight-edge drummer, who played with passion. It’s rather surprising, because one rarely thinks about a Heavy Metal band actually originating from Brazil, as Viper did. Although, the group was inactive for a number of years; today they still play around São Paulo. Their official return to the music business was in 2001.

Viper cut their first demo single in the mid-80s, prior to releasing the full album, “Soldiers of Sunrise.” Most people don’t realize what a great commercial success the band was. They had a full discography, and the group continued making music at select venues. Even releasing another album in 1989, which was very popular among the Viper devotees. So much so that it went on to sell out, beating out other groups such as Van Halen and Nirvana in album sales that year.

It seems that Viper has maintained a loyal base of international fans in places as far away as Japan. In fact in Japan, the group went on to release a few additional singles. One of which was, “Maniacs in Japan.” When the lead singer left the band to pursue his educational interests; Cassio and the other members developed a decidedly edgier sound with harder Metal chords and drum solos.

Honey Birdette Looking to Prosper Overseas

Rising Australian lingerie company Honey Birdette is gradually developing a global market for its product.

The sexy and fashionable lingerie brand, started by Australian businesswomen in 2006 has quickly claimed popularity overseas, first in the U.S. and now potentially in the United Kingdom.

Honey Birdette is known for its lingerie boutique chains which caters to a more moderate crowd but still is more risqué than commercial retailers such as Victoria’s Secret, but short of hardcore erotica.

After experiencing impressive success Down Under, Honey Birdette invaded the U.S. market in 2010. Over the past year, online sales in the U.S. have increased by nearly 400 percent. This has prompted the decision-makers at Honey Birdette to launch more direct e-commerce site for the U.S. market. The aim is to grow the American market by promising faster delivery service and free delivery of orders $50 or more.

The larger and more focused online thrust at the U.S. market is only part of the most recent business moves by Honey Birdette. The Australian lingerie chain is looking to dramatically increase its presence in the United Kingdom. In addition to potentially unveiling brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S., Honey Birdette is looking to increase its retail stores in the UK from the current three to as many as 40 by the end of 2018.

With 55 stores in its native Australia, Honey Birdette is also eyeing other major markets on the European continent and it seeks to develop a more global presence for its sexy lingerie brand.

Whether it is bras, briefs, panties, or suspenders and stockings, Honey Birdette is looking to showcase its sexier lingerie lineup to greater parts of the globe. These recent developments suggest that they are ramping up for a possible rapid expansion in the coming years.
