It’s always been the element of struggle that makes music human and exciting. Neil and Sharon Finn discovered that for themselves at home late one night in their pajamas, having their first jam, making a racket in the grand tradition of enthusiastic amateurs. For Neil, after a career of writing songs and strumming guitars, it was liberating to be behind a drumkit, no chords or melody to navigate, just keeping time and making it swing. For Sharon, after raising 2 fine boys and coping with Neil it was just 3 notes, pure feel on the bass guitar.

www.myspace.com Iowa: a place, sure, but also a state of mind. It’s a place somewhere between shoegaze and psychedelia, a spacious soundscape of reverb, feedback and dirty, dirty fuzz that could have provided a home for everyone from Spacemen 3 to the Jesus & Mary Chain. And it’s a state of mind shared by the Melbourne three-piece of the same name.

In response to the rise of reality television & the emerging ban on all culturally seditious behaviour, a psychobilly pop band called The Henchmen began hiring out halls & warehouses, putting on seditious showcases of reckless abandon disguised as 'parties'.
At first nobody came. even their closest friends and family disassociated from this reckless band of loners & outcasts. So in 2004 they moved from the relative safety of Canberra and spread their 'party' across the national landscape, performing everywhere from Brisbane to Adelaide.
