We’ve got a few killer projects coming up this year, but to warm up for a much bigger project we are working on we are putting the call out to artists to submit all kinds of random stuff for Issue no.3 of what has been a pretty low-key unknown e-zine that we’ve put together from time to time; STD aka SHAKE THE DOG.
So if you’re feeling inspired then hop right to it and send thru the following… art, photography (all kinds), mp3’s (for a STD mixtape… weird random shit; demos are more than welcome), sketches, photos of your dog, photos of you as a kid, lyrics, poetry, short stories, interviews, basically anything really, try us, send us other people’s rad work too haha! well… ummmm…. Anyways test our creative brains with your perspective on art and shit!
*Remember all files must be of the digital nature, so we won’t be accepting physical canvasses or sculptures (well right now anyways) haha! and don’t forget to credit yourself or whomever the work is by.
Email all files to email@example.com or if the files are of the big nature then please use Dropbox or Hightail etc and send us the link and we’ll do the downloading ourselves…
The good times keep rolling at Captain Cook Hotel with our weekly RESIDENTS nights and just as another sweet band (TAKING BERLIN) pulls out of the driveway another hot number rolls in!
VAPORIZED are a band that many of you may not know just yet, but will surely know post these shows are set to bring their noisy punk ruckus to Wednesday nights at The Cook and we hope you can all make it down for a mid-week roll in the Hay with these cool cats. With special guests aplenty we are sure to be looking down the gauntlet at another RESIDENTS classic!
Opening nights special guests are two very special bands HUNCH and SLOOM.
Sydney punk duo GAY RODEO have hit the ground running with a brand new video for their song VEGEMITE. This will definitely go down a treat when it makes its debut on National TV this week just before Neighbours on Channel 10, a great time slot for this classic song by a band that till yesterday we didn’t even know existed.
Also if you get a chance you can vote for Vegemite as it is also a finalist in The International Best Jingle Awards of 2015. The boys have been flown out to Canada and will be debuting Vegemite live at the awards. Stars like Kanye West and Iggy Pop are both said to be attending.
Made by Mtv award-winning film director Glenn Chalk (the Matrix) the guys are currently working on another video which will be released as a vinyl video, something that has never been done before. Look out for their debut EP, set to drop on Iggy Pop’s yet to be named record label.
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. Continue reading →

We all know that Australian music is pumping with all its accolades of up and coming bands doing great things Nationally but also Internationally. But did you know that there is a mass of amazing bands that flood the grand unknown landscape that is Independent Music? Continue reading →
As you may or may not know, we met this band CAPTAIN COOK a few months back and like many in our circle, we have all been taken aback by their music which seems to be speaking to our dreams, creating an exciting buzz around MSR HQ of late. Continue reading →
