Zillanova: From studio to stage

HopeStreet fans, listen up! Studio-based project Zillanova is back in business after a long hiatus.

Zillanova is a studio project led by label-founder and bassist Bob Knob, who has been cooped up in his studio over the past year writing tunes with Joshua Tavares. This summer they’ve put down a few of them in the studio for an EP release later this year.

Zillanova’s first recorded offering was released in 2013 – a split 7″ record featuring Cisco Tavares (Joshua’s brother) on Suicide and Jess Harlen on The Time It Takes . Chelsea Wilson, a fantastic soul singer herself and until this year Music Director at PBS FM says:

“Suicide is a world class 45! The production is melt in your mouth, the guitar sound is perfection and the tracks are earmworm delicious”

Decide for yourself!

Now that there’s a stack of new material in the works, the band has emerged from the recording studio and making their on stage debut. They’ve been holding down a Sunday night residency at The Retreat (280 Sydney rd, Brunswick) with the last show this Sunday.

The band is Joshua Tavares (Gospel Sundays), Bob Knob (San Lazaro, ex-Bombay Royale), Tom Martin (The PutBacks, The Bombay Royale), Matty Vehl (The Bombay Royale) & Jules Goyma (The Bombay Royale, Blue King Brown, The Public Opinion). Expect pure fire.

New video: The Cactus Channel in the studio

The Cactus ChannelNot so long ago this year, spent a total of 5 days in the studio to create their second full-length, Wooden Boy.  Oscar Strangio documented the session with both photo and video.  Here we present How Did This Happen? which opens Side B on the LP.  You can also check out Oscar’s photo gallery for some pretty awesome shots of the band in the studio.  You can check out more of Oscar’s work on tumblr at worldthroughmylens.tumblr.com

Congrats to The Cactus Channel for selling out their launch last Friday at Northcote Social Club (and almost selling out the Thursday!)
