You’ve Got The Love..

This past week has basically been extremely crapola . Like I’m talking SUPER crapola, Remember thethe discussion with my mum  : “Shit happens but nobody expects Diarrhoea “.

I seriously copped the Diarrhoea this week.

Lucky for me I have some pretty amazingly awesome Friends and Family who have been my rock . Also there have been people who haven’t even known me for very long but they too have been gunning for me as well.

This song is for them , and if you feel like it crank it.



For the Love of Boys in Bands Part Deux

Today has been a great day.

A great day for Australian Music.

And an even better day for WA  Music.

This morning saw WA Local Original Band Village Kid perform Live on the roof of 94.5fm in Subiaco for the chance to be the support act to Bon Jovi.

They Won.

The band worked extremely hard for the opportunity putting every minute of every hour of every day into getting to where they currently are.

I can’t think of a better bunch or guys who deserve this opportunity more than them.

Much love to Aaron Malone, Michael Tan, Matt Bartel, Michael Burn and Matt Bell.

Kick some Arse on Wednesday.

For the Love of Boys In Bands

I dont normally do promotions on my blog. Actually I never do promotions on my blog. But in this instance I am making an exception.

Today I want you to take TWO Minutes of your time, whether it be after work , orin those last few minuites before you head home, after dinner, before you go to bed, in between checking your notifications on facecrack or DM’s on Twitter to vote for these amazingly talented boys to win a well deserved place Supporting Bon Jovi when they hit our Perth Shores on December 8th 2010.

The competition run by www.mix.com.au  gave local original Perth Bands the opportunity to Support Bon Jovi on the Perth Leg of their tour.

170 Bands entered the competition this was then whittled down to 8, with over 10,000 votes 4,000 of those occurring on the weekend, resulting in four bands qualifying to be in the final voting system to  support Bon Jovi.

Now we need you to support and vote for VILLAGE KID.

Village Kid was formed in Perth in late-2009, aiming to create a powerful funk-rock hybrid band combining passionate songwriting with unrivaled musicianship and live performance. Within just a few months, Village Kid had supported The Black Sorrows, played alongside Thirsty Merc on their new 2010 album tour, released their first EP “Colourul Girl’ to over 500 fans  and took 1st place in the Jazz Category of the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition. Drum Media magazine described their first EP as “Phenomenal”, and they are now gearing up to record their first Album.

The band is made up of  the amazing Vocal Skills of Aaron Malone, Lead Guitarist Matt Bartel, Keyboard Michael Tan, Bass Guitarist Matt Bell and Drummer Michael Burn.

The dedication of the band is unfounded, with their combined experience and talent bring a train of musical beauty to your ears that makes you want to hit the  repeat button on your ipod continuously.

Get your voting shoes on & be in the chance to win tickets to Bon Jovi
