What’s been on

The past few weeks have busy and productive. Night Train, Venom Inside, Lavers, Rick Bennett, and a band with no name, amongst others

Tim recorded a song – “Altitude Sickness” – for Venom Inside. The song sounds great and is kicking goals for them on the Triple J Unearthed site. The band also went on, a few days after the session here, to win their age category and the open category for rock bands at the National Eisteddfod.

Night Train spent the the best part of the Queen’s Birthday weekend tracking three songs with Duncan which are earmarked for an upcoming release … maybe … if you ask nicely.



Laura and Michelle from the Babyshakers of old have teamed up with Chris on bass. There result is a heavy, trashsy, loud, obnoxious and fantastic noise. The, as yet, unnamed band tracked a few songs one evening and one was mixed for a competition entry.


The Lavers spent a day tracking drums to some songs they have been working up at home. Those boys have a great sense of pop. Soiree started work on a industry demo which was all going along just nicely but Megan, their singer, retired hurt with a flu. And Rick Bennett, who has written a book since I last saw him, popped in and dug into his reserves of as yet unreleased music with the plan to remaster and repress his album “Spirit Trail” with several extra tracks.
