In our endless quest to drop bombs we present you with our latest artist of the Month, drum roll….. it’s two piece punk pop punk outfit BEC AND BEN. This two piece blew onto our radar a few months back on a cold winters night at one of our Thursday weekly RESIDENTS shows at Bucklers Canteen, Bondi. Anyway it wasn’t long till we realised that this duo was somethin pretty special. Fast forward to right now and well we’re not gonna say that the rest is history, but to us these guys could be some serious rock n’ roll history in the making. They make a lot of noise for a two piece and they definitely give THE KILLS a run for their money, purely because BEC bangs real drums standing up while singin, Amazing!
So tune in over the coming weeks as we try our best to tell you the story of BEC AND BEN and if we succeed in doing that then maybe you’ll all come along to their record launch at BRIGHTON UP BAR on Friday 28th September. Good deal right?
For now here’s their new tune off their debut EP BUTTERKNIVES TO RAZORBLADES for you to enjoy for free!

Sydney’s FAIT ACCOMPLI are currently out on the road literally setting fire to stages around Australia with their Soul Punk musical powers. So we here at MSR were first unsure, then we thought “fuck it!” let’s make FAIT ACCOMPLI our ARITST OF THE MONTH for July. So tune in over the coming weeks as we follow them through their SPIES tour and get some fly on the wall info about the shows and after show shenanigans. Like we’ve already heard about the SAILOR JERRY fuelled Gold Coast all-nighter they pulled with friends DEAD BEAT BAND, PIRATES ALIVE and a loose member of STICKY FINGERS last Friday night which led to a near on stage biff between the members of DEAD BEAT BAND during their set at a packed Great Northern in Byron Bay on Saturday. One of the boys was then ejected from the venue and took the $300 cab ride home option to the Gold Coast – Rock n’ Roll! Sounds like the tour is going swell!

2. WASTING TIME
Every now and then a kick ass band climbs out of the deep black hole that is the underground and makes a whole lotta noise like a lion that has been given free reign of the zoo. DAMN TERRAN ‘to us’ is that band, they know all the tricks that help make a decent hard song with attitude, a head butting sound that would go down well in any shoot up scene and melody to make the kids sit still while you rob the bank. So as you get away from the crime scene, DAMN TERRAN is sure to make your car not only run better, but you might just get away with the loot. DAMN TERRAN are not the new cool band that everyone is going to flock to, but they are the new cool band that smart people who miss losing their minds to music with attitude should most definitely flock to. We think we’re pretty smart, so we’re gonna flock to this band and bang our heads, kick out the jams and then go home, make dinner and then smoke a sweet dooby and scream out “I got the Loot!!!!!!!”.
DT will be hangin out at MSR HQ for the month and they’ll be touring the Country to celebrate the release of their new single REBELS.

Tune in, don’t tune out! XOX
Unfortunately, it’s Monday. Again. If you didn’t get out to see our ARTIST OF THE MONTH on Friday night, here’s a rockin’ video of BANG! BANG! ROCK ‘N ROLL performing their song “Do The Twist” at GoodGod, a worthy song to get dancing to and kick away those Monday blues!
We took some time out to enjoy the rainy summer, then that got boring, then we tried to avoid doin work, then that eventually got boring too. So now we’re back with new toys and a viva la resistance attitude towards punk rock! Can you tell? Hope so. We missed you all, it’s been way too long.
Right now we are here to announce our next exciting instalment of ARTIST OF THE MONTH and excited we are. So to kick off 2012 we present you with our favourite band of 2012 so far – BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL, yep they are our artist of the month for the month of March.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be presenting a whole lotta goodies ala B!B! RN’R. So make sure you keep tuning in and get to know this cool punk rock three-piece who are currently taking Sydney stages by storm. Keep an eye out for interviews, videos, photo shoots and so much more.
So please tell your friends about BANG! BANG! ROCKN’ ROLL and if you get a chance please go out and catch them at a show. Why? because they rock! that is why.
Our feature artist of the month is SAMOAN PUNKS, new project by Mr Ray Lalotoa (Fait Accompli/Goons of Doom). We’ll be featuring the brand new debut album ‘LAST NIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY – TAKIN BUDDY HOLLY TO KARAOKE! and other random things, interviews, videos and what ever we can find out about SAMOAN PUNKS over November.
