Features triumph at Diesel:U:Music awards
Thursday, October 4 2007, 09:57 BST
US band The Features were the big winners at last night's Diesel:U:Music Awards.

The Tennessee four-piece - who have been described as an American version of the Kaiser Chiefs - scooped the Rock/Indie category as well as the Public Vote Award.

This is awesome, how did this not get out??? Did they know that they won?

Hey Everyone,

Since we made it as finalists in the Diesel-U-Music contest we thought we should do another one. We entered a SPIN magazine and Music Nation contest and the winner gets to play the South By Southwest (big music industry convention) Spin party, get music placement in TV, and a record deal.

Please go to www.musicnation.com and register as a fan. Then go to thefeatures.musicnation.com and vote for us in the SPIN/MUSIC NATION CONTEST.

Also, you can embed our Music Nation promoter program to get other people to our site.

Just click on embed:

With your help we can get a lot of exposure out of this contest!


The Features

I heard "Blow It Out" on XM Radio (XMU, Channel 43, for those of you who have it), and I got so excited I nearly ran off the road. I'd been meaning to e-mail those guys and ask why they never played the Features. They play Kings Of Leon all the time. So I was pretty happy.

That is all.

Rollum Haas
A lot of people think Rollum Haas—the hyper-fueled drummer for localrock darlings The Features and The Privates—looks like Tom DeLonge (youknow, the dude from Blink 182). We say Haas has a boyish yet goofycharm all his own, heightened more by the stark contrast between hison- and offstage persona. Haas mans the drums with a frantic urgency,all loose-limbed and trotting one minute, heavy-hitting and precise thenext. But you won’t find this reticent 27-year-old with a liltingSouthern accent on the bar scene—unless he’s behind the drum kit. “Anyfree time I have when I’m not working is spent on music,” Haas says.And that kind of work ethic is damn near required for someone who isoften tagged as the best rock drummer in town. Offstage he’s far morereserved, though every bit the quirky-cool boy we suspected: “I likevideo games. I’m an RPG nerd—it’s kind of a loner thing,” Haas admits,referring to his affection for the geeky role-playing games. But Haasisn’t a loner in love—he just celebrated his one-year weddinganniversary with his former crush, the adorable Katie Krampf, who hadno idea of Haas’ affection for sci-fi when they first met. “Whatsurprised me the most about Rollum was how much of a dork he was aboutscience fiction, Star Trek and video games,” she says. “He’s the sortof guy who watches MacGyver and The Mighty Ducks without a hint ofirony.” But she quickly fell in love with his childlike sense of humor,musical prowess and creative notions of romance. “Early on, I knew hewasn’t the kind of guy to bring you chocolates and flowers,” she says.“One night on my birthday, he stayed up really late making me this bookout of construction paper. It was this whole story just filled withthese funny illustrations that he made. It was so sweet.”
