JET
Beginnings. Having grown up in the suburbs of Melbourne on a strict diet of classic rock, the Cester brothers (Nic is three years older at 24) found disaster looming. A terrible blight was about to hit the youth of the Melbourne suburbs. Grunge. I couldn't stand the stuff, continues Nic. To me that was real slit your wrists music. It didn't relate to this idea of rock'n'roll I had in my head.


John Butler Trio
John Butler was born in Torrance California on April 1st, 1975, he moved to Australia in 1986 to a small town in Western Australia called, Pinjarra.
He currently lives with his wife and child between homes outside Byron Bay and in Melbourne. Shannon Birchall (bass player) lives in Melbourne.
Michael Barker (drummer) is from New Zealand originally and currently lives in Melbourne.


Taxiride
Axiomatic: "A statement, a situation that doesn't need proof to be believed." says Taxiride's Jason Singh. "It's a strong belief in yourself" adds Tim Wild. "There's a running theme throughout the record touching on conspiracy theories, whether it be personal, political or futuristic. It's a meeting of the minds, writing songs that are both musical and topical."

Savage Garden
  • One of the most successful duos in pop music history
  • Among the most successful Australian recording artists of all time
  • In the Guinness Book of World Records for winning an unprecedented number (10) of Australian Recording Industry Association Awards in one year (1997)
  • The reigning record-holders for the longest number of weeks on the Monitor/Billboard Adult Contemporary Airplay charts in the US for their singles: ?I Knew I Loved You? - (124 weeks) and ?Truly, Madly, Deeply? (123 weeks). One of only two Australian bands to have ever had two #1 singles in the US.


  • Grinspoon
    When, where and how did Grinspoon form?
    Phil Jamieson and Kristian Hopes met up with Pat Davern and Joe Hansen at a jam night held at 'The Gollan' on the 21st of July 1995. The four got together and wrote a song named Clockwork. Then, on announcement that Triple J were starting up 'Unearthed' (a competition to help get regional bands air time and the possibility of a record deal) the guys entered a song called 'Sickfest' that went on to be the co-winner of the competition. 'Sickfest' then became Triple J's number one requested song for 7 weeks and the band Grinspoon was well and truly born.


    The Panda Band

    The Panda Band was born from one mind and aided by few machines in a small cell in Perth. The songs were built on melody skeletons, they grew, learnt, ran and rejoiced in the open spaces of their town.

    Damian remixed Good Dancers in 2003 and won a Triple J competition to make him happy.

    A small plastic disc flew over east in a paper bag with a demonstration of Eyelashes by The Panda Band encoded on its surface.

    Triple J and FBI Radio added Eyelashes to their "must play everyday" lists. Inpress (Melbourne) and The Brag (Sydney) said it was the best song that week so they wrote it a love letter in their publications.

    Autumn 2004 faded with the easterlies and Damian was joined by four good friends who helped bring life to the one's and zero's.



    The Simian Line

    The Simian Line are a 5 piece rock outfit that originally formed in early 2001 under the name Zeta Theory, before undergoing a series of lineup and stylistic changes.

    Over the years, the band has come a long way, both in their sound and song writing as well as in their active stage performance. They have been gigging regularly around Perth and have supported nationally renowned acts including The Butterfly Effect and Sunk Loto, as well as playing 3 years worth of WAMi Festivals, The Big Day Out, The Rockathon for Cancer, and appearing on multiple compilation cds including Left of Centre, and S.L.A.M.

    They launched their debut self-titled EP in November 2001 and released their follow-up ?Reticuli? in April 2003, and the single, ?Leave Without A Scar,? in April 2005. The Simian line are set to release their next EP mid 2006 through MGM, which will be followed by their debut interstate tour.



    El Horizonte's

    Inspired by the vast vistas of desert and ocean etched into their soul by their hometown of Geraldton, El Horizont? create music that is honest, passionate and strikingly raw. Fusing elements from stoner, rock and punk, El Horizont? possess a unique, uplifting sound, with a burning live show.

    El Horizont?'s origins go back to Geraldton 1997 where two young fishermen Ben and Eddie terrorised the town with their rock band Horizon. Formed by four high-school friends with long hair, Horizon built a loyal following, playing wild backyard parties and inciting riots. The bands first release, 'Another Place, Another Time' gained them a slot on the annual Juggernaut festival, supporting acts such as Allegiance and Shihad.

    In their pursuit of a greater vision, the band decided to leave Geraldton for Perth, sadly parting ways with their bass player. New bass player Dan was found in early 2001 and Horizon commenced their attack on a sleeping city. They steadily built their profile, however it was felt that full potential was not being met. March 2002 saw the induction of new drummer Angus, bringing to the band a new life - and a new beginning - El Horizont?.

    The band has since been gigging heavily, taking out the Taste Band Comp Grand Final, receiving a WAMI nomination for Most Promising New Band and winning the National Campus Band Competition state final. The future sees El Horizont? entering Survival Studios with producer Adam Keane (The Panics, Black Steel) to record a full-length album for release in early 2003.
