The Editors, Pinback, Q and Not U
Explosive, energetic and intense. They will take you up and up only to crash you down on the jagged spikey bloody rocks below.

You've only been together for 6 months, what were you doing before that?
Making potions, lotions, ads, movies and slot machines. This isn’t a joke, we do have day jobs. Musically, we have been part of The Martini Henry Rifles, The Paperhouse, Red Accomplice, The Never Ends, and Nil by Ear.
Why is your front man called 'The Yeti'?
Some American used car salesman and his mate claim to have found Bigfoot (or multiple Bigfoots) it’s actually Kurtis’s extended family. A more interesting story is how Jason (drummer) got his pseudonym (google him)…….
What's coming up in the future?
Apart from the exhaustion of oil supplies and this great thing called 'global warming' – SUMMER ALL YEAR ROUND!!! – we are working on an EP which wont include the rumoured Baltimore Dub-Step remix of White Shirt.
Australian music is?
Kurtis: Hanging at the roller skating rink and skating as fast as you could to "Split Enz - I see Red".
Dan: Tim Rogers spitting and then catching it in his mouth.
Luke: Waking up after Daft Punk and realising that the Australian supports were more enjoyable.
Jason: Men at Work (he is Welsh)
