Slug Guts

Slug Guts hail from the barren, heat stricken confines of Brisbane, Australia, a town as desolate as it is depressing and suburban. Slug Guts began when four degenerates had little else to do but form a band in the tradition of Pussy Galore, X (Australia not L.A.), and Birthday Party. In the first four months of the band Slug Guts recorded their first LP Down on the Meat which was released on Stained Circles Records (Jay Reatard, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dirtbombs).

The Jane Austen Argument

The Jane Austen Argument are a Melbourne, Australia-based indie cabaret noir duo who combine raw ballads and sharp tongues with chaotic abandon and overtones of anti-folk and punk love. Brought together through a chance cigarette break encounter (I have a cabaret show and need a pianist. I’m a cabaret pianist in need of a show…), a shared love of Regina Spektor, Nick Cave, dressups and theatrical musical convention, The Jane Austen Argument’s Tom Dickins and Jen Kingwell have been playing together since around September 2009, although it mostly seems a lot longer.

Chaingang

Chaingang is a group of three dudes and one dudette from Sydney, Australia. We've been making music together for two years and are currently finishing off some new tunes for our debut release coming out later this year. So far, we've played with some amazing bands, met a lot of fabulous people, recorded and played shows in the US, survived a real car crash as well as many metaphorical ones on our rocky road to international super-stardom. The only band all four of us love is Faith No More, but we can only dream of making music that majestic.
