The Vignettes

vi·gnette /v?n--y?t/ [vin-yet] Since their inception in 2006, The Vignettes have been rising through the ranks of the Sydney live scene with their twisted take on garage rock and visually entertaining show impressing all in their wake. But with a sound that would give any larger band a run for their rock n roll dollars, two is all it takes for The Vignettes. Born out of a chance meeting between Joel and Katie at a New Years Eve party, The Vignettes experimented with a number of different line-ups before stripping it back to only two.

M.O.T.O.

MOTO stands for Masters Of The Obvious. Pretty much it's Paul and whoever is playing with him at the time. Some people think Paul's lyrics are too dirty but most people think they are funny. MOTO write songs that are catchy. That's all that really matters. It all got started in the early 80's in New Orleans. But then Paul moved somewhere else. MOTO have released dozens of albums, some cassette only, some CDs, some are little vinyl discs like this one. You've probably never heard of MOTO. It's a good thing that now you know.

Iowa

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.
