Rattlin' Bones Blackwood
"Rattlin' Bones Blackwood is a rockin' step back in time, a tour de force of 1940s and 1950s black electric rhythm and blues, boogie woogie, rockabilly and vintage rock and roll..."
Ben Cameron, Bendigo Weekly
The Bones Blackwood Rhythm & Boogie Revue was born in small bars and on the streets of Atlanta Georgia, and Chattanooga Tennessee with a donated guitar, a plywood board, and two milk crates. He now has a better guitar, half a drum kit, and a more comfortable seat. He tears it up - you dance your ass off.
The Farm is an accidental gift to our four members, from casual jams to finding ourselves writing songs with ease while drawing on early rock, blues and funk influences.
The band members are all experienced working musicians and this combined with a passion for the music results in a silky smooth grooving rock band, and constantly writing and recording new songs.
The Farm is a genuine rock band experience with all original songs and with live shows behind them the band always draws the crowd.
Abolición is an animal rights band based in Melbourne, Australia. The story started in a shed, in sunny Richmond.
Pedro Allemant moved from Peru to Australia and was looking for vegan musicians in Melbourne. He had been active in the vegan music/AR scenes in Peru and Spain and he had been a regular stallholder over the last few years at World Vegan Day. He posted flyers on the internet and on his market stall.
In 2014, Daniel Green (guitar of Public Liability) saw the post and contacted him and then he introduced his band-partner mate Alex Gawly (voice).
By coincidence, Alex had bought a cd of Pedro´s solo music called Futuro vega*Pop in WVD 2013. The world is small place! Then, the guys began playing tunes.
Later, they met Drew Basford and his lovely bass, a fantastic bass player with a great history behind him. After, a hard search for a drummer, they found the right one in the mystic Pai Hobbes who completed this serious outfit!
So far they have a film clip of the song "The Prisoner" and many future projects ahead. This creative endeavour and this vital message starts now! Animal rights music for the world!
Audemia began as a 3 piece band in 2010 playing undecided-genre music. Audemia are now a powerful vessel on the open waters that are the Victorian rock scene. Having organically honed into their specific brand of hard/alternative rock, Audemia somewhat pick up where the 90s left off with a fuller, beefier slightly more polished and modern sounding blend of grunge, alternative, post-grunge (apparently that's a real thing), metal, sugar, spice and all things nice
“The approach to our music undertaken is one that is seen less and less of nowadays, in that the four of us will work on a song and let the style develop naturally, as such we are still unsure of the band’s classification, for now “Rock” should be good enough to cover all our ground, but even then you could argue against it on some fronts. We are reluctant to list “influences” because we try to remain uninfluenced. Of course we have influences, all musicians have influences; the only people who wouldn’t be in any way influenced would be Eskimos, if you gave instruments to Eskimos, they would trump us in terms of originality, because they would have no reference to work from. Whether subconsciously influenced or not, we maintain that our music is a natural creation, which is most definitely not in any way a recreation of an older artist or a Frankenstein of other artists, which sadly, seems to be the way music is created nowadays. If one of our songs sounds like another band, it was a fluke”.
Audemia Consist of: Lead Vocals and Bassist – Tony Calleja Lead Guitarist – Dave Lauritsen Guitar and Vocals Jacob Camilleri Drums – John Downey
here’s only so long a band can be around before most people would have heard your name, seen you live, or at least claim that you owe them money. Since late last century Frankenbokhave been blowing into town after town, damaging hearing, and generally getting the job done where previously there wasn’t even any work.
On the road, across Australia & New Zealand, at every turn Frankenbok keep finding themselves amongst the league of esteemed, extraordinary, somewhat bearded gentlemen in the likes of King Parrot, Wildeornes, Deprivation (3 of Australia’s finest heavy bands) War Bringer (USA) and New Zealand’s finest Sinate and 8 Foot Sativa.
