News : Ampt Festival - VIC

JayJay writes"

After the massive success of the sell-out debut aMpT Festival, Peninsula Events Australia with the support of triple j's Short Fast Loud & are proud to announce that Australia's Hottest Alternative Rock Bands & Fans will once again gather in the plush surroundings of the Peninsula Theatre Complex & Grounds in Mornington on Sunday February 5 for the Annual Ampt All Ages Music Festival.

Organisers say this 'one of a kind' event will once again bring together the best of all alternative music styles including Hardcore, Emo, Punk, Metal & Heavy Rock to the one place at the one time and they hope to see even more live music fans from all over the country, head down to experience first hand what this unique festival is all about.
2 stages will host a massive 20 Bands for the big day, with the main stage being headlined by emo band Behind Crimson Eyes, who had monumental success in 2005 and look set to have an even better 2006. aMpT will be they're first gig of the year & the first time they have played on the Peninsula since the "Sold Out" aMpT winter festival back in July. Supporting them on the Indoor Stage will be Melbourne bands In Name & Blood, Horsell Common, Sunset Avenue & Picture the End, South Australia's Wendy Icon & the two current top Mornington Peninsula bands, Famous By Association & One Dead Dream. The Outdoor Stage will also once again be packed with huge local talent including Arpejio, Blind Nation, Blame It on Stanley, BTK, Chase Manhattan, Exit Wounds, Morning Glory, Pro Team, Standing Tall, The Bullet Never Lies, The Scissor File & When Destiny Fails. Additional features at this year's festival will also include The November Clothing Flatland S-K-A-T-E Titles, an outdoor flea market, food & drinks stalls & more.

Promoter Paul Harvey of Peninsula Events Australia said "Last years Ampt Festival proved to be a money cant buy launching pad of big years for bands such as Kisschasy, Parkway Drive & Behind Crimson Eyes who all went from being relative unknowns to bands who have gone on to receive ARIA nominations after performing at aMpT!! My tips for making it big in 06 are South Australian Hardcore band Wendy Icon, who not only have one of the most unique sounds I've heard in a while, but who also have growing industry interest due to they're recent invitation to perform at the 2006 Big Day Out in Adelaide. Another band I think people should look out for is Horsell Common who have also just come off a big year of support touring to an impressive list of bands".

Limited tickets are on sale now via the credit card booking hotline on 03 5975 3779, from Peninsula Events Australia 3/4 Torca Terrace, Mornington VIC, Plato's Music in Frankston OR Missing Link Records Melbourne. 'BONUS' There will be 200 (Only) Early Bird Tickets available for the special price of $29+bf with all purchasers also going into the draw to win a private screening for themselves & 10 mates to the new horror film (endorsed by Quentin Tarantino) 'Hostel', in cinemas February 23 through Sony Pictures.

News : The Rhythm Bell

brendan writes"

Rhythm Bell

Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula of Melbourne and alienated from the wider music community meant the bands music was pure and honest and devoid of the influence of belonging to a particular subculture or scene. “We learnt to play our instruments together and we think it shows in our music,” starts singer/guitarist Dave. Subtlety referencing their influences in Fugazi, Shellac and more locally The Nation Blue, Rhythm Bell aren’t afraid to flirt with three four timing, angular guitars, tonality and as there name perhaps suggest an emphasis on rhythm.

The Rhythm Bell world is ultimately one of fun and expression; one where neither boundaries nor a particular individual takes control. All songs are products of the group messing with a riff until it unfolds into a song. Time consuming perhaps but an element that makes the bands sound so unique and captivating, particularly live.

An independently minded group of musicians playing a style of music that could inevitably find them only a limited audience by no means phases the band; this is no lucrative financial enterprise just a group of passionate and likeminded individuals playing the music they want and on their own terms.

The band have just released their debut 4 track EP which is out now on Highhorse Records for $5 PPD by contacting . To hear some MP3’s visit: or "
