If you were hanging around Captain Cook Hotel last year then you may have noticed a new band we’ve been championing, Captain Cook (the band). Anyway after we first met, they ended up playing a pretty amazing residency which lasted for 15 shows and everyone who came along had a blast witnessing them make magic every Wednesday night. Due to Christmas and the Summer Holidays Captain Cook’s residency had to sadly come to an end. But don’t worry you’ll be seeing more of those legends around soon.
So our little weekly residency is kicking off again this year with another one of our favourite Sydney bands on the scene TAKING BERLIN taking to the stage throughout January. We hope you can join them every Wednesday as we bring you some pretty special guests to boot. Your support will be much appreciated.
We caught up with their very positive vibe and enthusiastic frontman Bradley Christie and we had a few words before their debut RESIDENTS show tonight at The Cook, the venue.
See you there!

Up and coming Sydney two piece THE RUMOURS have just recorded a brand new single which is the first in an exciting five-part video/single project the boys are working on over the summer of 2015.
Produced by Dave Hammer (Born Lion, Thundermentals, Fait Accompli) at Def Wolf Studios this single was recorded live and dusted in one session, showing how far THE RUMOURS have come as a live unit in the space of a year.
They also managed to film a video with another up and coming ex-New Yorker now based in Sydney filmmaker Spencer Hyde (also front man of the fresh new Sydney outfit Captain Cook) to document the process.
Check it out here in all it’s glory I TOLD YOU!

Rarely seen on Aussie stages, The Brag presents The Art’s world renowned live show. An abrasive, exciting and intoxicating blend of melody, mayhem and solid rock ‘know how’.
Through the wreckage of The Art’s most trialling year, the band return with their strongest effort yet. A year of battling long American roads, European festivals, drug charge allegations and a change in personnel has proved the winning formula for this band at their creative peak. An epiphany amid chaos, The Art’s new single ‘Dead Inside’ showcases the band’s extraordinary ability to touch a nerve through daring sonic expression.
The first Australian performance in almost a year is now booked for November 8 at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory. In favour of touring, the band will focus all attention for the release of single ‘Dead Inside’ on this one hometown show.
The band have opened this event as a platform for their most respected peers in the musical and creative realms also. With the scale of offerings way beyond that of a regular club show, Oxford Art Factory are offering admittance to the entire venue, two stages and performing areas for the price of one ticket. Ten bands, plus a selection of stalls showcasing the art and wares of Sydney based creatives.
Featuring; Australian Pornstar Madison Missina, CHOOSE DEATH, HLSTR Clothing, Frothlyf sunnies and the art of Ray Lalotoa.
