Meet The Hi-Boys

Oh my The Hi-Boys are so hot on stage, you can feel the canned heat in your heels from the minute they step onto it. To say they are high energy is an understatement, these boys are fiery, raw, rough and ready to knock your socks off with the rockabilly edge that is so undeniably their own. When you've seen them once, you will know that sound anywhere, like the smell of your favourite coffee house in the morning you'll be addicted. For a 4 piece, the intensity of sound that comes at you is an explosion of 50's style rock 'n' roll to leave you breathless but your body will not be able to stop the boogie.
Hailing from the talent-rich Noosa area, the boys have been making us shake, rattle and roll all over Queensland for some time now with their polished, tight sound. Having recently returned from a US tour through California and Nevada, they have been working hard on growing their international audience, so it wasn't all rock star shenanigans, they did perform three shows and record new material to grace our eardrums upon their return to our shores. So what's next? If you've never heard them play, you really need to get yourself to one of their stage carving performances. No one does wild rockabilly like these boys. Rock 'n' roll like theirs isn't for the faint of heart, tracks like 'Tell Me Baby' and 'Trouble' are real heart starters taking us back to the days of liberty rolls and quiffs with a modern flavour that puts them in a league of their own.
Now they have returned home, we can't wait to hear the fruits of their passionate labours. Scottie, Daen, Paulie and Dean are keen to get back out there with the latest single 'Shake' which has also been released as a 45, plus more new tunes as soon as possible. Also a little gossip from the fan page, they have just signed with L.A based Rock 'n' Roll record label Wild Records, and are now sponsored by Kingbrown the big news, from all of us here at Alt Journal, we'd like to congratulate Scottie and his new Fiance' on their engagement ...cheers to a long and fulfilling love affair.
Be rock & rolled right here...

Getting Creative on the 'Soul Coast'

What does it mean to be a creative artist? Arts ventures and organisations on the Sunshine Coast are currently growing exponentially. The shift in how our community see and value arts and the role it has to play in our lives is ever snowballing. The creative arts inject fundamental vitality into all aspects of our growing community. In each individuals' creative expression we all gain something. Gathering within this NFP collective, the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance, are artists, educators, innovators and philanthropists alike. Our fascination as humans in everything around us, informs everything we do. Fortunately for us living here on the Sunshine Coast we have this extremely pro active collective whom collaborate regularly to keep the arts alive and thriving, forming a recognisable identity for our generation and those to come.

The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance have done it again with their #juiceandjam breakfast this morning. Encouraging creative enterprise, innovative d…

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
