The Transatlantics

Based in Adelaide, South Australia, The Transatlantics are an eight-piece deep funk and soul outfit inspired by the great soul performers of the late 60's and early 70's. The Transatlantics came together in 2007 born of a shared love for gritty old vinyl, cheap guitars and quality barbequed meats. Described by NME as "a young, white Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings," The Transatlantic's sound invokes the grainy warmth of Southern American Soul and the rhythmic grunt of classic James Brown-era funk.

Janey and the Ravemen

Goes like this..... Johnny Kaiser (drummer) and his wife Jane (singer) decided they'd like to record some tunes together.
They asked Brad Dallaston to join them on bass - they now had a stable unit which could play together.
They then initiated the talents of like- minded guitarists, who joined them from far flung places such as Essex, Scotland and Norway as and when they could, with the prospect of recording some songs. Very soon this happened and "Stay Away From Boys", their first LP was made, featuring Kaiser George and Ed Turner on guitars.
