I will be honest. We are going to have to get our own soundsystem next time we do this. Great turn out, capacity event, hot people, lots of hip shaking and drunken unruliness, but some problems with sound. With a few more people in the room it was hard to get it loud it enough with out the speakers cutting out.
Even so, it was still an amazing night of Rock N Roll and Soul from the 50s and 60s, and we are going to work hard to make sure the next one is even more swinging.
I never get booked to play this old rock n roll and soul. I have a heap of it, but the only way you get to play it out is putting on your own parties. So I am doing just that. Teaming up with Dear Pluto and Sonny Syah, this is bound to have you shaking a tail feather into the wee hours of the morning. You know it is going to be a party.
My photoshop skills just keep getting better. This Sunday I am soundclashing Hau a.k.a. Hauie Beast (Koolism/triple j hip hop show) in a Euro trance showdown. Plus one of the best rappers to have never release anything, Sonny Syah will be performing earlier on. He just plays live, because releasing music is for sell outs. Be-lee-dat!
Also here are some tracks from Sonny’s unreleased, unfinished album ‘The Envelope: An Audio Motion Picture’. He plays different characters in a story of an Envelope that changes hands. I don’t think it will ever be released, so I might as well put up a couple of tracks here.
Insert airhorn. This is a Stolen Records exclusive from Sonny Syah – one of Sydney’s best kept secrets. Look out for his forthcoming album, ‘The Envelope: An Audio-Motion Picture’. This is just one episode in the saga. It features the vocals of Fame, and production from DJ Force.
