http://www.myspace.com/untruth1 . Untruth are a Heavy Metal band from the Mornington Peninsula, about an hour south of Melbourne, Australia. Drawing influence from artists such as In Flames, Machine Head, Mors Principium Est, Dark Tranquillity, Soilwork and The Black Dahlia Murder to name a few, they are certainly a band to keep an eye on as they continue to build a solid following.
In January 2010, a band was born: full of energy, bursting with love and spilling over with songs to sing and stories to tell. This band is Charlie Mayfair. The first part of this year has seen the band racing around their hometown writing songs, making friends, and letting people experience their unique style of folk-fired pop. They hollered their gigs from the rooftops and Brisbane heeded their call.
Jon Stevens (1962- ) is a New Zealand-born singer, now an Australian citizen. Stevens moved to Australia after success as a pop star in New Zealand in the 1970's (his best-known songs from this era are Jezebel and a cover of Montego Bay). He is most recognised for his work as the lead singer of Sydney band Noiseworks, who had major hits in the 1980's with "Take Me Back" and "Touch". Once Noiseworks disbanded, Stevens was part of two Australian productions of Jesus Christ Superstar - playing Judas on both occasions, to high acclaim.
Dog Trumpet is the vehicle for the musical activities of brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa. They formed the band in 1990 to record and play their original songs. They play as an acoustic duo or as a full band with various line-ups of guest musicians.
Reg and Peter were long-time members of Mental as Anything but they left the Mentals at the dawn of the third Millennium to concentrate on their artwork.
The dawn of now announces Tortoiseshell! A musical squad of dudes, cousins, and brothers. Making music for the sand pit, island sojourn, disco or pastel bedroom. Their conga cuts, energy and high spirits map a vast vista of pop taking in many mediums and times. And how would you describe their sound? Tortoiseshell ride the sunny currents of Talking Heads, ESG, afro pop, the 80s, Howard Arkley, deep wave, Roxy Music et al. They will take you to crystal, clear turquoise waters.
