Buck Dean & The Green Lips...Sunshine Coast's newest rock stars.


Buck Dean & The Green Lips

Good old rock and roll is not dead! That is definitely the vibe you feel when you grooving along to Sunny Coast local lads, Buck Dean & The Green Lips. Armed with a mutual passion for blues, rock, fun times & great tunes Nick, Brent, Tom & Trent make the most of the best rehearsal space on the coast to galvanise their special recipe of old school inspired songs. Tuning up over looking an immaculately beautiful Headland on the south side of the Sunshine Coast Queensland, there could be no better place to set the mood, feed the mind & get the creative juices flowing.

Motivated by a mutual love for music, in particular rock ‘n’ roll, these mates got together to start a band & make some serious tunes. With a common thread of influences within the group of all the greats like Muddy Waters, BB King, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles (I know it’s all sounding very cliche’…but that is rock ‘n’ roll isn’t it?) Tom Petty, Guns ‘n’ Roses & our own sensational Silverchair, it’s none too easy for Tom & Nick to collaborate on crafting the hits.

Driven by an inspirited rock sound the boys nurture their eclectic musings to create tomorrow’s hits. You can hear a little of all the aforementioned influences within their originals mixed up with their own grungy style. They have a massive home town following and are ready to spread their musical seed all over the place sharing the love with all who enjoy the goodness of old school rock. In fact, they have just released their first EP with an official launch night coming up...you can also look forward to a rockin' live show very soon, as the boys have shows confirmed from Brisbane to Mitchell Creek including an awesome 'Set Adrift' show on a yacht cruising out from Mooloolabah in September. Only a very limited number of tickets still available for this through A Set Adrift.

PLANET - The Struggle for Support is real for Emerging Artists

Words of wisdom for every emerging artist from PLANET's Matty Took. I wanted to start a conversation about the reality of following your dreams in the music industry in Australia. We want young artists to understand these challenges a little better & know they are not alone in the struggle.

 Your bio states that you had several years of trial and error in your songcrafting. What was the defining moment you found your rhythm and were happy about what you were producing?

I feel like every band or musician starting off doesn't really know what “their sound is” or know what their vibe as a musician is when starting off. Especially when they throw themselves in the deep end at a younger age, without any ‘behind the scenes’ work and no label behind them. This was us, as we just started playing straight away.

We’ve all played in a few different bands in our time so hundreds of songs have come in and out. Our defining moment was probably about 3 years ago when we started PLANET. We …

The Uprising of Van Larkins

Who the heck is Van Larkins? I hear you ask. 
Focus, drive and determination are three words that come to mind talking to Owen, AKA Van Larkins. His compositions are dynamic, artful and complex commanding every ear in the vicinity; the craft of one who literally eats, sleeps & breathes their passion.

Composer, mentor, teacher and troubadour of a unique fingerstyle revolution in Australia, Owen has chanced many opportunities to grow with his craft. It's not just making a classical tune or knocking out some dank rock, (both of which I love mind you), his arrangements are so much more. When this guy picks up a guitar, together, they create an aural story. Having just released his second solo album in July this year, I wanted to know about the uprising of Van Larkins, and his new album 'Cinder Moon'.

You've just recently played a role in a documentary style film, 'Acoustic Uprising'. How did that come about?

I was in discussion with the guy who put the whole th…

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…
