Christian Best is a prominent character on the Sydney music scene. He is a smiley guy, plays a mean screaming guitar and is a young living legend. He also has lungs to match those of Beastie Boy Mike D and all members of Black Lips in a screamathon and still come out on top.

If you’re a keen gig goer in Sydney then you probably would’ve seen the mural we painted for The Annandale Hotel. We filmed the process on a Mac Book laptop and edited it on iMovie. We are on the look out for more spots around town to paint, so get in touch if you have a wall. Anyway the Annandale Hotel is hands down the best live venue in Australia, the owners are cool and the staff are friendly. And they make sweet Thai food out the back. You should get down there and get your deafness on.
