We’re a Perth band releasing a new track on the last day of each month. We’ve released 5 albums to date, played countless gigs and jammed the odd hustle when we were pushing back the hunger or the thirst. We watch the world turn and try to describe the burn, the outcome, the truth or at least our version of it. Our music is melodic and our intent is original – we are neither young nor pretty and we couldn’t do it all again – the first time is always for keeps, the second time is for the boys in the bar calling for one more story, one more drink and once more into the breach we go.

The Date, 2021 … and beyond.

2021’s album is ‘Mandate’ and it sings of the fight for freedom – to live, play, exercise, choose and above all to be human. We’re questioning policies, choices made on our behalf and leaders who aren’t leading. We don’t want the job but we do need it to be performed correctly … if it isn’t we will need to make change as a nation, a people, an individual. We believe in the right to choose and the right for a better life. We believe in equality and individuality and we want everyone to have the opportunity to step up and step forward. Mandate – Mankind Managing the Manning of the Mannered and Their Mantelligence.

Now back to us – tell the world a little about yourself they say – the shorter, the better:
