1) In 1992 Ross worked in several samples that later on recollect the fruit of the seed. Many people inside the independent movement of Spain were very interesting and soon Ross start to be recognize in Spain and also in USA, Japan and some countries of Europe...
In 95 it´s came out the first album of Ross called “Sugar” (Munster Records'95) a collection of beautiful songs produced by Ken Stringfellow (Posies – Big Start – REM).
The Sydney based four and sometimes 5 piece have just released their debut, the ironically titled mini-album Extended Play.
From the inner west the band is delivering a refreshing vibe to the Australian music scene, they began when drummer Beaks and bass player Paddy, met busker Dylan, one night outside the Coopers Arms hotel in Newtown.
Dylan, fresh from N.Z. and not yet 18, was on the streets with his guitar busking for coin outside the pub. â€œWe met him,â€ Paddy says, â€œwhen the Coopers Arms bouncer started hassling us to give the dude money".
Since then the band have spent their time re-fining and re-defining their sound, a mega-hectic, psychedelic, reggae thatâ€™ll have you trading your flat screen for a ticket to ride, surrendering your dignity to your urges, throwing shapes around rooms with people youâ€™ve never met.
The Sticky sound is doused in textural, psyche-y and atmospheric melodies that push out the S.F. rhythm sectionâ€™s blunt soundscapes.
In the past 14 months the Stickies have started touring, along the way playing Woodford, Playground Weekender and New Beginings Festivals and playing with Children Collide, Urthboy, Amy Meredith, Art Vs Science & Kingtide. Already highly rated by anyone that crosses their path, the bandâ€™s live show is on the up. Read more on Last.fm.

There are at least two bands/artists with this name: 1) BLACKBIRDS is a hardcore/punk band from Michigan (although some members are from Canada). Their earlier material took cues from American Nightmare/Outbreak/97A but their new material is in the vein of His Hero Is Gone/Tragedy/etc. They are not broken up anymore and are back together with a new lineup, new releases soon, and are back touring. The hardcore band Blackbirds is not associated with blackdog records.
Sydney-born DJ and producer Hook N Sling, aka Anthony Maniscalco is recognised as one of the most exciting genre-blending house producers to come on the scene in recent years, a title which has led him to places most only dream about. In 2007, he pumped up the opening party for We Love Space in Ibiza before jetting off to the likes of the US & China. His track 'The Bump' a collaboration with fellow Aussie, Kid Kenobi raked in a coveted ARIA nomination after becoming a worldwide smash and buzz chart number one. It even had the likes of James Zabiela playing it as his encore record.
