Fangs of a TV Evangelist

Commercially ignorant Power Trio, even a "supergroup" (is that term still cool?). Based out of Melbourne featuring Jace (Pigman Vampire/Bikini Eyebolt/etc.) on Guitar/Vox, Mikey (Brain resin) on Bass and Jem (Fire Witch/Inappropriate Tough Guy behaviour etc.) on Drums. With each new album comes a name change and more confusion.
Criminally ignored band with a high output of great music.

Ignivomous

Ignivomous is a death metal band from Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 2006, the band quickly issued a cassette version of the demo "Path of Attrition", which quickly sold out. This led to them signing with cult US label Nuclear War Now! and re-issuing the demo on 12" vinyl with a bonus track (a cover of ancient Australian band Necrotomy). 2008 saw the release of the "Eroded void of salvation" 7", followed up by gigs throughout Australia.

Pajama Club

It’s always been the element of struggle that makes music human and exciting. Neil and Sharon Finn discovered that for themselves at home late one night in their pajamas, having their first jam, making a racket in the grand tradition of enthusiastic amateurs. For Neil, after a career of writing songs and strumming guitars, it was liberating to be behind a drumkit, no chords or melody to navigate, just keeping time and making it swing. For Sharon, after raising 2 fine boys and coping with Neil it was just 3 notes, pure feel on the bass guitar.

Nancy Vandal

Nancy Vandal is a punk band from Sydney, Australia that performed from 1993 to 2001 and had a reunion performance in 2003 and have, as of December 2008, planned a reunion and new EP for 2009. The band was initially called Hard Axe To Follow, then Nancy Vandal and the Popgun Assassins, but the last part of the name was later dropped. Nancy Vandal was formed by Warrane College students Foxtrotsky/Fox Trotsky and JJ LaMoore as a strictly pretend band as neither of them could play an instrument. Eventually the pair formed a real band called Meataxe that played on campus.
