The Phosphenes

Taking Off With Spitfire - Showcasing Local Talent from the South Holland area

From the primordial slime of the independent music scene in the muddy gloom of a long Melbourne winter, the Phosphenes have emerged with their unique pop ’n’ roll sound.

In early 2000, ex-busker Dean Lombard teamed up with a few old friends — retired sax player Joe Saitta, prolific bassist Isabelle Kenny, and emerging singer-songwriter Victoria Brammall — to form a folk-rock-pop combo to develop Dean and Victoria’s original songs. Accomplished Tasmanian drummer Grant Watkins was soon added and Separation Street had an erratic but successful string of gigs — with well-travelled bass guitarist and songwriter Jason Cutler replacing the emigrating Isabelle along the way — before the reluctant departures of Victoria and Grant toward the end of 2001 (just after recording a five-track demo CD).

Jengi

Taking Off With Spitfire - Showcasing Local Talent from the South Holland area

Jengi are an International Pop Overthrow featured CD artist from Switzerland.

“Rod Stewart” – our song on the compilation – represents perfectly what “Jengi” want to Sound like. We breath sixties and seventies. We managed to come pretty close to the sound of the “Faces” on that one. Plus: We thought that Rod the mod and Rodney Bingenheimer would match perfectly!

Remember, we're always looking for fresh local talent to broadcast and promote, if you want to be involved you can provide us with some information about yourself as well as uploading a demo here.
