A song so new, Sam will kill me!

Slow Days:
This is a brand new song, so green you can still taste the chlorophyll if you put it in your mouth. Not really recommended as it was manufactured on equipment that may contain traces of nuts.

When it comes to showing off new stuff Sam and I disagree. He likes to wait until it is all so polished you can see your own arse in it while I love the process and evolution of writing just as much, if not more than the finished product.*

What do you think? Is it unprofessional to show you behind the curtain? Does it ruin the magic or just give you a better sense as to where these crazy songs come from? There is a comment box down below that I fear will remain unnervingly empty unless I make a bunch of fake accounts and have a conversation with myself. Feel free to use it before I fill it with death threats to myself for eating the last of my own pizza without asking.

(Song is now missing due to a bungled time travel experiment) - 28-11-11

*Just as a disclaimer, this is a recording that was done by just throwing a mic in a room and is in no way a final product - as if you couldn't already tell.

Boy do we have news! We can replicate!

We would like to formally welcome in to the world as of about 11am on the splendiferous thirteenth of September - in a year that whilst also known as year of the Testbed, shall also be entered unto the records as 2011 - the newest member of the band, Baby Hence!

While the name may still be a point of conjecture, the fact still remains that some pretty dedicated people put a whole cart load of effort in to letting a new human have a crack at the world and they really should be congratulated. You know who you are. Take a bow you tired, stinky people.

Welcome new dude. Hope down the track if you get stuck next to me in the car on a long trip after taco night, you can hold your own in a patty cake competition.

We tried our best!

As you all would have already heard on national news and the talk back radio stations across the globe - we didn't win our heat...

There was a brief moment where Sam was head butting me back on stage as I flounced with the crowd where I thought to myself , "we've got this in the bag!". But alas, it was not to be. We were bested; trounced if you will buy a band so piloted by pandas that they might well have just been a Panda Pilot. I'm not even sure what that means but boy did they knock our socks off!

We were well pleased with our turnout though so thanks so much to everyone who came out. It was also a genuine pleasure to meet all the guys from Mooseheads.

You also might have also seen some amazing photos of the night kicking around from Andrew Finch. He's very kindly giving us a CD with his awesome work on it which we will throw up on the website soon.

Smell ya later!

Mooseheads is next

Well last night at The Phoenix was bloody grouse! Cheers to everyone who came out. I hope you all had as much fun as we did! I got to sit back, have a beer and watch my new favourites The Roger Bone Band play an absolute killer set. If they don't win the Mooseheads band comp, it has to be rigged. Rigged I tells ya! We are going to be playing our heat on Monday the 5th so feel free to pop along and grab a beer and maybe a game of pool or two.
