Neighbourhood Watch - Wolf & Cub, SA

We've long been fans of nu grave Adelaide lupines Wolf & Cub ever since their first EP appeared through one of Australia's bestest labels Remote Control in 2004. And there was no ignoring the 2006 single 'Thousand Cuts' as remixed by Phones. With a new album due February 2009, it's hard not to get drool on your fangs knowing they've recorded it with Bumblebeez' Chris Colonna. The first sneak off the album is this:

Wolf & Cub - 'Seven Sevens'

We Are Back!

After a short hiatus (how long has it been? 5 months?), we're back! We're giving radio a break, and taking things to the W W W. For those of you who used to listen to the radio show (hi Mum!), we'll be following a similar format with the website. For those who didn't, no matter. We're going to jump straight in with a bunch of new music, DJ mixes, uncomfortable amateur photography... AND our award-winning sense of humour.

That's it. Let's get started.
