Sorry Norah, but reports from over 1200 Soundslikecafe outlets around Australia say our album was the most popular (No.1) on their March playlists. We're very happy...!



Thanks to the many, many wonderful people who came to our album launch. It was a really special night for us, and one we'll remember for a very long time. Your support was completely overwhelming. Thank you.

Recording update: The story so far ...

Back in the studio recording our debut CD with producer extraordinaire, Stewart Long.

International Women's Day

We had a great night celebrating International Women's Day and raising money for the Hobart Women's Health Centre. Thanks to everyone who came for their generosity and enthusiastic dancing. Thanks also to Moonah Arts Centre - excellent hosts as always.

The recording begins...

And so, after all the hard work, planning and preparation, the CD recording is now well under way. The three sessions this week went extremely well thanks to the incredibly creative and professional Red Planet team. Plenty more work to be done, but what a fantastic start!



Thanks to everyone who came to see us at the fabulous MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). It was great to see so many people on the lawn!!

Here's a little snippet of Moth to the Flame...

Blue Cow Theatre - Cowshed

We played a few songs at the Moonah Arts Centre on November 20th for Blue Cow Theatre's 'Cowshed' end of year readings. They have some great writers and the actors were fantastic. The Cowshed is Blue Cow’s development programme for playwrights. Blue Cow co-founder, Jeff Michel, facilitates the programme while Peter Matheson, one of Australia’s leading dramaturgs, works with the playwrights throughout the year.


Moonah Arts Centre

We had a great evening at the Moonah ARTS Centre (as the 6 piece Mama K and the Lovettes). Thanks to all who attended and to Michael and the MAC staff for making us so welcome. It's a great venue with a fantastic atmosphere and a great sound!
