4/21 FEATURED ARTIST – DAMN TERRAN

4 DAMN TERRAN

Artist: DAMN TERRAN
City: Melbourne, Vic
Style: post punk
Members: LACHLAN EWBANK, ALI EDMONDS, LEIGH EWBANK

DAMN TERRAN are hands down our favourite post punk band from Melbourne. They sing about political issues and are passionate about what is going with the world around them, something that is lost to music in general these days. Their live show is an intense powerful punk rumble of noise which has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

DAMN TERRAN have toured the Country heavily and have already shared the stage with heavyweights like DIE! DIE! DIE!, DZ DEATHRAYS, VIOLENT SOHO and CHILDREN COLLIDE, making it only a matter of time before this brother and girl trio step up and take their place as Melbourne’s go to band for all things heavy punk rock n’ roll.

This write-up is short and sweet because this band is a no-nonsense straight to the point act. We’ve got enough indie pop bands in this Country to last us three life times, the kids need to harden up, Australia needs to wake up to DAMN TERRAN right now!

Recording debut album right now with Ben Ely (REGURITATOR), dropping 2013.

FREE PUSSY RIOT UPDATE: ARE MUSICIANS THE NEW REVOLUTIONARIES? AND SYDNEY! WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?

If you Google FREE PUSSY RIOT, it is pretty clear that one of the most organic revolutions is taking place right now on planet earth. Not a guilt ridden plea for people to open their hearts and wallets, but a creative revolution full of so much colour which can definitely be attributed to the power of music and art. In a very short amount of time some of the most respected people in music today have come out and raised their voices in support of the FREE PUSSY RIOT! Campaign.

Maybe the answer to world peace really does lie within music and art? How will this go down with Governments when they eventually realise that fear and war really is not the answer? It’s something that may actually never happen, but we all live in hope.

So while all this is going on and people are getting behind this cause, our question is “SYDNEY! WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?”

Ok we know you’re getting ready right? More info for your involvement is coming, but for now feel free to write the following words where ever you can “FREE PUSSY RIOT!” and post it up on the internets!

For those who are yet to be convinced, take some inspiration from the following artists below…

150 people gather in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg for a ‘Free Pussy Riot’ Protest video. The event was organized by Berlin-living Canadian electro-punk artist Peaches. The participants wore multicolored masks and demanded freedom for PUSSY RIOT!


A message from Yoko Ono to Putin!
Mr. Putin, you are a wise man.
You don’t need to fight with musicians and their friends.
Please FREE PUSSY RIOT!
And keep space in the prison for serious criminals.

ILLUSTRATIONS OF DAMN TERRAN MAKING EXPLOSIONS

We were trying to get some photos of DAMN TERRAN from their show with DZ DEATHRAYS in Brisbane last week, but apparently now with the new government who have just been voted in, you can go to jail for copyright infringement in Brisbane. True story, crazy crayfish man. So instead we decided to get one of the work experience kids at ARTIST UNION to do some quick illustrations of the band making explosions.

Just in case you didn’t know who the members of DAMN TERRAN were, here’s a small  introduction.

LACHLAN EWBANK – Vocals / Guitar

ALI EDMONDS – Vocals / Bass

LEIGH EWBANK – Drums

DAMN TERRAN TO TOUR ‘REBELS’

Our Artists of the Month DAMN TERRAN will be touring thru April and May to launch their new single REBELS. They will be hitting up Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and will finish up in Sydney at FBi Social with quite the lineup which includes; CHICKS WHO LOVE GUNS, CORPUS & SWEET TEETH. So make sure you get along to one of the shows.

Here’s a video for one of their kick ass tracks RATIONAL ECONOMIC MAN. Check it! Rock out!

NEW MSR ARTIST OF THE MONTH ARE AWESOME MELBOURNE BAND – DAMN TERRAN

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.
