Magenta have just begun their entry into the Mlebourne live scene after forming late last year. If you've always been a fan of bands like Swervedriver, Alice In Chains & Stone Temple Pilots this might be the stuff for you.

Apologies to all for the blatant self-promotion
Armen Firman (formally The Flight) have just recorded their debut EP 'Our Love Is Deceased'. Expect to hear it on the waves soon! It kicks arse (just to relate it back to the topic).</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>


ChicoT 20 Apr 2005 17:27

Hey Shooga, I don't play in any of the bands I mentioned, I play in the band Jika. How about you, you play in a band?

shooga 22 Apr 2005 15:22

Hey Chiko
I don't play in a band, but I am in the music management side of things. I think your band Jika are very cool, and from your list so is seven and five star. However, there is aVERY limited market for that sort of music in this town in my humble opinion, so u gots ta luv wot u do coz u aint gonna do it for any glory or $.

As for the rest of the bands u mentioned on your list....gotta be honest and say that most of them bore me senseless . Bring on some chaos and something NEW! </title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>


ChicoT 23 Apr 2005 10:58

Hey guys, the paperstreet guys are awesome blokes and a mighty live act to boot. Shooga, thanks for the compliment I suppose we might have differing tastes in music, but I see your point of bands in general not stepping outside their comfort zone to be more interesting, I don't maybe just horses for courses, but on the other hand I've got to say Melbourne has the highest standard or independent acts in Australia, dozens of which are on par with international acts in quality and in my opinion I have many a times enjoyed a melbourne band which I payed ten bucks or less for a lot more than an international band at $70 a head (or more sometimes), I think Melbourne is a gold mine that very few people in the mainstream industry have the balls to make the most of as they are trying to play it safe by signing a radio friendly band or an oz idol runner up.
Anyway we have our launch tomorow nite at the Gershwin room (apr 24) espy and we will be accompanied by a 7-piece percussion section if you are interested, it should be quite special.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

My vote... The Rex Wicked. They played on wednesday nite at the greyhound. those guys rocked! i agree with chico, tailbone and sydonia are quite rad. :) but anyways, i recommend the rex wicked. some good rocking riffs, with a bit of a classical edge. sorta the love child of led zepplin and the mars votla. awsome stuff. the bass player said theyre playing at the duke on wed or thurs. so check em out!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
