New Album & Sody Pops / due out in November  

Hey to all the Striker Likers, we’re currently working on our 6 th release and 3 rd full length album at Australia’s best studio for the thinking persons music production centre, the inimitable Brett Sody of Sody Pop Studios. It’s a hub of music and literary warmth, with Brett also currently working on his 3rd novel which gives the vibe and the album the infusion of artistic serendipity, like Edgar Allen or a reading of Hamlet on a cold existentially angsty night. Anyhow this album is right up the alley of WSS song craft and we are really looking forward to getting out to you guys. Peace Andrew Matters

John Healy - Great Lakes F.M 101.5 - Wrong Way Home - busted head 

Thanks to our good  mate and DJ John Healy for giving a shout out to Andrew who had a slight head clobbering after getting too enthusiastic when the bass dropped, he wrecked himself before he checked himself and found himself in Flinders Medical Centre with a mild concussion and a major embarrassment, anyhow as John said, he could’ve gone the wrong way home but somehow, something, somewhere went right!!! Rock on but not rock on head nor head on kitchen door handle whilst rocking on..

Milk Presents The Garage Byron Bay 99.9 F.M 

“ Radio “ off our Album Keep Left gets a spin on Bay FM by the long running stalwart of garage, low fi and the punk DIY ethos, I’ve been Milked. You can stream this show from just about anywhere in Australia and you’ll find the independent gems that keep a person abreast of what’s going on in this genre around this little blue ball. It’s subscription time and I look at it from this angle, community radio, particularly specialist shows keep a crucial balance in our sometimes imbalanced media monopoly world. For those, ( and statistics would confirm that “  those “ are about 45% of the listening public on any one day ) who value diversity of opinion, art, culture etc so on and so forth, community radio provides the counter balance to the sludge ethos of “ if it bleeds it leads “ . It’s never been more important to have non scripted ground roots media, not just for artists ( although many of us would not survive without the support of the network) but for the local communities that rely on these stations for news and the general knowledge of what’s happening in the respective community that each station/program provides. So I would implore anyone who can afford to to subscribe, donate or contribute whatever is within your ability. The crews that keep the system rolling do so largely on a voluntary basis, donating massive chunks of their time for the love and betterment of all our lives, fueled by a desire to keep art/culture/politics  visible for all of us. Now more than ever we need independent media representatives.

30 Years of Rage 

We're proud to be a part of the 30 year history of Rage, our clips were made on a shoestring and we've learnt the craft as we've gone along. We all started watching Rage as teenagers and it became a part of the Australian musical landscape, settling in at 9 o'clock and going on through until 6 in the morning, discovering music as you went along, all the while thinking " I reckon I could get a clip on there one day " so when you finally do you can say to yourself that you've ticked off that milestone. Here's to another 30 and here's to our new clip which we are looking forward to cobbling together and seeing it on Rage.
