Spiderbait - Deni Ute Muster, Deniliquin NSW

Aussie rockers Spiderbait, consisting of the original trio of bass guitarist Janet English, singer-drummer Mark “Kram” Maher and guitarist Damian Whitty, took to the stage at the Deni Ute Muster with plenty of attitude.

“I know we have a lot of country artists here Deni but are you ready to rock?” yells Maher to the crowd and it’s obvious that they are.

  Shadow Thieves perform a fusion of rock, indie, progressive rock, roots, funk and atmospheric music on the first wave of the socialistic digital age. The band consists of four key members; Matt Buckley, Jack Letizia, Joey Green and Cass Wilson. The project began as ‘ENACIO’ in early 2006 after performing with other local Gold Coast bands.

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.

Interview: KRAM – Making Music and Loving It!

KRAMTell us how Kram came about?

KRAM: Mark spelt backwards invented by an old mate while we watching a Leyland Brothers movie in the local hall.

What have been the highlights and advantages since becoming a solo artist?

KRAM: It’s very liberating to make a record where you play all the instruments yourself, like a massive bedroom 4-track session. I enjoyed doing that with Andy, recording everything! I will definitely make more records like that in the future. If you have the idea in your head, you can just go in and play it without having to think about the live thing at all.

… and how does this compare to Spiderbait?
