Our boys are famous

Hi kids, Az here.

Happy Valentines Day. I hope you’re getting your cock smoked or your vag tickled, whichever applies to you.

Our mates Madam Wong released their long awaited debut single “Cannibal” today (video embedded) and they have firmly established themselves as sick fucks. Welcome to the club fellas. I cracked up watching the video, it’s a lot of fun.

The song is really great. Do yourself a favour and watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.

An eagle-eyed viewer (ie. me) saw that the three targeted victims on the cannibal’s fridge were the three members of the former band Puzzles, of which two of them are MNIJ band members Jes Kellett and Craig Nelthropp. The sentiment of their inclusion on the cannibal’s list is obvious – sometimes I want to kill them too. 🙂

Well done to the Madam Wong boys. Looking forward to the single launch show. You guys reading this should go along and see it too.

Peace out

Az

I can still smell the sex

Hi kids, Az here.

Well, your Johnnies just had their first practice last night at our new home of RedRock Productions in Girraween, the artist formerly known as Party Pig Studios.

A bit of history for you:

This studio has been through many different owners over the past 30 odd years (Reuben, the current owner, has been running the place since about a year and a half ago). Around the time of 2003-2007, Party Pig (as it was formerly named) was owned by former MNIJ drummer Ryan Lambert – not that one, this one – best known to Sydney-siders for his time after MNIJ as the former drummer of Town Hall Steps.

If you’ve ever met Ryan, you’ll know that he’s quite a handsome boy and owning a rehearsal studio made him very popular with the ladies of the local scene (and I guess playing in an emo band helped too). He used to entertain quite the frequent conquest at his studio and that control room where recordings are performed was his former sex den. I have stories that I’ll take to my grave coz I ain’t no snitch. 😉

I had a chuckle walking around the place and having the memories flooding back as Reuben was showing me around and pointing out all of the remodeling he’s done to the joint.

As for the photo included, that’s an old MNIJ sticker that Ryan put on the hand towel dispenser in the men’s bathroom about 15 years ago – and it’s still there. How amusing. I didn’t dare touch it.

We went through about 5 new songs last night – our next show should be interesting. 🙂

Peace out peeps

For this week, we take you back to the early 2000’s to remind you of one of the coolest bands to ever come out of Melbourne – For Amusement Only.

Looking at them now, if they were a current band in this day and age with the benefits of social media by their side, they would have been so much bigger today than they were back then – and they were big anyway. They were awesome.

We really wanted to include a song from their first EP as well but there aren’t any video clips of those songs, so here’s the next best thing – staring at a still image in a YouTube video whilst having your ears treated to some FAO goodness.
