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.
It's that time again, time to commit to tape the new music we have written over the last 18 months since the release of "Nothing's Going On ". We knew through experience that the time from incubation to inception would be heavily reliant on a number of relatively predictable variants that preclude the normal pluralistic " spanner in the works ". To cut to the chase, we're now well immersed in the writing and structure, preparing the songs for the task of capturing them for consumption. We've had a growth spurt which was surprisingly natural whilst also deliberate which sounds like a contradiction in terms but in this context, is nothing more than a gentle herding of the elements already existent in our style. We've been humbled by the continuation of our back catalogue to be receiving such attention by not only our regular crowd but also by a new crop of listeners who didn't know of us until recently. It's very rewarding to watch older albums being consumed by newer consumers and something that can obviously only happen to a band that achieves a longevity like ours coupled with a very regular output of material that we have deliberately worked extremely hard to achieve. In the next month we expect to announce some shows and to also upload an album track that will be a prelude to the album and made available to the radio networks that have given us so much support over our life span.,I will be back with more updates as they come to hand...
Our first ever release is now available here for free, we recorded it live to get shows and decided to flick it out. We sent a burnt copy to Triple J and 3 days later got a call to be told it had been spun by the inimitable Sarah Howells at Midnight on Roots N All. It also got in the Top 40 Australian releases of 2008 on The Australian Release Show on 4ZzZ. Anyhow until now unless you bought a copy or heard it on the airwaves you couldn't have access to this little prelude into the beginnings of the band.
On Cary La Courses show on the international show hosted by XPR Radio. It's well worth your time to head into the chat room and discuss music with other members of the global music loving community, it's usually depending where you are, around 9 PM, you can voice your opinion in real time on the topic of the new music that's being consistently unearthed by the dedicated team of DJ's and music aficionados associated with the station and its podcast, we'd like to personally thank Mr Cary La Course for his support of our band and it's music.
