Matt Sonic & The High Times

Matt Sonic began a music career at a Brisbane musical institution, Red Zeds Studios, in early 1996, cutting a demo with musical maestro David Atkins in the wee hours of the morning. The demo, Rebel Riders From Mars, would form a template of the deep and subsonic sounds that have become trademark of his bands that followed through the next 10years. Late 2008 saw Matt touring Australia, from Coober Pedy to Coolangatta playing bass for Magic Dirt, and writing a debut solo album in the back seat of a Holden Commodore.
