Former Tea Party frontman JEFF MARTIN forms new band with J Cortez (The Sleepy Jackson/The Armada) and Malcolm Clarke (The Sleepy Jackson/The Basement Birds).
The Jeff Martin 777 project officially came together in 2010. While Jeff spent the majority of the year touring constantly both here & abroad, inbetween shows, Jeff, J (bass) and long-time friend Malcolm (drums) would come together to knock out songs at Malcolm’s Yo-Yo Studio in Perth. The end result sees this super-tight trio come up trumps with their debut studio album, The Ground Cries Out.

THE DANDY WARHOLS first garnered international attention in 1997 with the world’s catchiest anti-heroin song, “Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth.” However it was their brilliant third album ‘Thirteen-tales-from-urban-bohemia’ that catapulted them into the stratosphere.
