Portugal get a little dark muscle courtesy of RZA; a crunching beat, some muttered rap and a Prince-worthy refrain, a sharp pitching chain-gang chorus. The band’s psychedelic swirl is all but erased in this remix, but their soulful melody comes into sharper focus. Sounds good.

For those unaware, One Direction are a teenage British boy band who are just the right combination of good looks and shitty pop music to seduce the hearts of young girls worldwide, and just young enough for Kony to kidnap. They released an album called Up All Night (which has dominated charts worldwide) and got away with it because of their young, clean...

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
El Moth – a lot of inexplicable extra-curricular activities with a healthy dose of music on the side.

What do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Better than nails down a chalkboard, these guys are actually alright for a bunch of drunks (minus Leon, he's a good boy!)

What do you love about making...

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
The band is called earl and you've got all of us. Troy – guitars and all things tech. Tom – drums. Jackson – slappin' the bass, and myself, Mark – vocals and guitar.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Pop-rock. No one has told us we sound like...

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
We’re called Michael McQuaid’s Red Hot Rhythmakers. I’m the bandleader, and I play trumpet and write music for the group.


What do you think people will say you sound like?
We play really old-school big band jazz, the sort of stuff you would have heard in a Chicago speakeasy in the '20s or a Harlem...

Anyone who had the first edition of SingStar will be familiar with the hit song I Believe In A Thing Called Love performed by British glam rock band, The Darkness. Any bona fide fans of The Darkness will also know that they have been off the map for damn near six years now. Throw in some rock star drama including drug addictions, band break ups and rehab; it is clear to see the hiatus...

Following on from yesterdays' cavalcade of Splendour sideshows, oft-lauded Canuck outfit Metric have joined in on the action in announcing a peripheral Melbourne date.


The band's impending visit to our shores will come hot on the heels of the band's much-anticipated fifth...

The name literally means ‘God’. They are not yet so deified but are they bigger than Jesus? In Belgium at least they could well be. They are the biggest band in the land. So big in fact, that other pretenders to the throne such as Dead Man Ray or Zita Swoon feature past or present members of dEUS. On the eve of their first Australian tour, Keep You...

After reforming in 2011, Canadian rock band The Tea Party have announced that they will be touring Australia in July.


Though the trio disbanded temporarily in 2005, they had managed to tour Australia twelve times between 1994 and 2004 and release eight albums within their 15 years together. When the band reformed in...

Melbourne band Vice Grip Pussies haven’t played the Cherry Rock festival before, but drummer Stacey Pommer is very familiar with both the event and the venue itself. “I’ve been to all of them, but I can’t really tell you much about any of them,” Pommer laughs. “I love the vibe at Cherry Rock, and I love watching Sixfthick playing in the laneway, and crawling up the walls.” Pommer...
