Available as a free download from music.thebeautifulgirls.com,
www.facebook.com/thebeautifulgirls, www.myspace.com/thebeautifulgirls
on November 9th, 2009

After 7 years on the road… in hotels, in foreign mud, strewn packets of guitar strings, bags full of hotel keys, flight stubs and stickers on gear cases that map a zig-zag of touring across just about every continent on the globe, a motorcycle accident saw some cheap Los-Angeles-Hotel down time for Mat McHugh. That period saw him strip his songs down, take some time sitting still, and record his first solo album. A soulful unwinding, and a timely look back to the early TBG.

Whitley ‘Go Forth Find Mammoth Tour’ November 2009

whitley   Following on from his critically-lauded debut “The Submarine”, Whitley returns with stellar follow up, “Go Forth, Find Mammoth”. Written and produced by Whitley, and engineered in a ramshackle studio on the Victorian Coast, the new album pushes the talented songwriter to his limits.

This well-realised follow-up picks up where his debut left off in it’s warmth, beauty and intimacy, however it carries a much bolder aspiration. “Go Forth, Find Mammoth” is an engulfing journey filled with flourishes and triumphs. Multiple harmony vocals, strings, pump organ, pedal steel, horns

and even a hammer and a bedroom door make up this album’s truly rich and exciting sonic palette.

Soundwave 2010 – 2nd artist announcement

Soundwave 2010   After fifteen years, six studio albums, ten million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success, few will argue that PLACEBO are among the world’s great rock bands. For the first time in three years the guys will be bringing their swag of hits to the Soundwave stages in 2010.

ANTHRAX redefined metal in the ’80s, stressing anger, speed, and emotional intensity over big hair and power ballads. After a stunning performance at the Sonisphere festival a huge campaign was waged by the fans to get John Bush back on vocals. We can proudly announce that John will indeed be fronting Anthrax for their Soundwave performances and this will surely have the bands faithful frothing at the mouth!

Motion City Soundtrack, Shinedown, Set Your Goals, Enter Shikari and Closure In Moscow will also be joining the already massive bill.
