The Cactus Channel Putting Down Their Second Album

Over the past couple of weeks The Cactus Channel put down their second LP over  5 big days at The Aviary Studios, where our 8 track now calls home (and I have a mix room). It all happened faster and more awesome than we could have hoped for or imagined!

We’ll be in to mixing soon, and then once the band names the sucker, it’ll be into production!  Currently pegged for August this year.

Thanks to Oscar Strangio for the fantastic photography.

The Public Opinion at the Luwow


PUBLICOP 2A band with 17 members doesn’t get out that often, so when there’s a show at Melbourne’s most eccentric venue, The LuWow with the full afro-beat experience, it’s one not to be missed.  The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra are playing on Good Friday Eve (so that’s THURSDAY March 28th), with 2 sets of dancefloor-filling afro-funk grooves, served with a side of tropical cocktails.  These guys recently released a new single entitled The System and are hard at work on material for their sophomore album.  Stay tuned for more news soon!
