These bands need no introduction.
In case you'd forgotten, here's the lowdown on the headliners:
'Ever wondered what a post-modern deconstructed pastiche of early 21st century contemporary pop/rock kitsch might sound like? ...your senses are assaulted with everything from Captain Matchbox vaudeville, Nine Inch Nails industrial guitars, toy instruments, the voice of HAL, German 1920s cabaret and gypsy accordion...' - Drum Media
Fuji Collective music is highly imaginative, often unpredictable, and showcases the energy of all six band members thanks to the group’s commitment to collective composition. Their sound traverses jazz, various forms of rock and avant-garde, but always brings it back to the funk. Fuji has concentrated on developing their independent, community-minded approach, performing frequently and appealing to a diverse cross-section of music lovers. After a sold-out first album launch in 2006 at the late great Sydney venue, The Marquee, and a sold-out second album launch at The Vanguard in May 2008, the collective continues to gather momentum in their groovy reputation and creative output.
SLIMEY THINGS are Australia's most exciting sci-fi rock band. They are humanoid. SLIMEY THINGS were first sighted in the venues of Sydney's underground in the year 2001. Their sound is an energetic blend of catchy pop, futuristic rock, sci-fi movie soundtrack music and zany cartoon sound effects. Since their formation by front-man, composer and radioactive super-sleuth Nick Soole, SLIMEY THINGS have received acclaim as one of the most unique, entertaining and hygenic acts to emerge from Sydney. With widespread radio airplay, videos on RAGE and their new MADE BY ROBOTS FOR ROBOTS CD /DVD now available at www.slimeythingswebsite.com, it's only a matter of time before the catchy rhythms of SLIMEY THINGS cannot be contained and finally breach Earth's puny defenses.

This was so exciting for us, not only were Squat Club returning (and boy did they rip it up) but the legendary DARTH VEGAS played their first Bird's Robe show in style. Our gorgeous sound man Brett summed up the feeling in the room - "these guys are the best band in the world".
