The Henchmen

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.

The Preachers

To compare Sydney newcomers The Preachers to any musical acts would be unfair. Not that they don’t have their influences (The Band, The Stones, Nick Cave) but their live show is more reminiscent of a religious cult. The howling voodoo high priest Gideon Bensen to the Magdeline-esque passion of Isabella Manfredi the voices in this band stir up a religious fervor which makes you want to drink the kool aid and wait for the spaceship.

Thee Oh Sees

John Dwyer (of Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Landed, Yikes, Burmese, The Hospitals, Sword & Sandals, Superpit, The Drums, The Trawgs, Zeigenbock Kopf and Dig That Body Up It's Alive!) is in Thee Oh Sees and he seems to be making this band the most serious project. He's done everything from noise to death metal to punk and now Thee Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees are no doubt the lightest of his excursions, but in contrast to the rest of his resume one could surmise that there are significant reasons for the change.
