All of these venues have been graced by practically all the great rock'n'roll heroes of our time, from The Rolling Stones to U2. The most popular video by Jauns Mēness is Piekūns skrien debesīs, since 1992 regularly demonstrated on MTV Europe and French Music channel MCM. Speaking about the musical style of the band - Artemy Troitsky, a prominent Russian journalist and music critic has once called it the most impressive if not the only example of baltic rock - alluding to similarities with the world famous celtic rock. Jauns Mēness is also unique having released the largest quantity of albums of all Latvian artists during the 1990s, both in LP and CD formats. The band disbanded in 1999, when their leader Ainars Mielavs launched a solo career. In 2005 former members Ainars Mielavs, Gints Sola and Juris Kroičs formed Mielavs un Pārcēlāji. In 2012 Jauns Mēness announced 25th anniversary concert, which is scheduled for the Palladium concert hall on December 2012. http://www.upe.lv/meness.html Read more on Last.fm.
