Style High Club @ zine fair TINA 2005 Newcastle, Australia

the Style High Club performing at 2005 This is Not Art festival in Newcastle, Australia. I thought these guys were great. really nice sounds. perfect for an afternoon in the sun wandering through markets and relaxing after the festival. a nice aussie hip hop band with members from Adelaide & Melbourne

http://www.myspace.com/stylehighclub is their myspace page

apparently their first album Creativity Department is available nationwide through Obese distribution (in Australia).

the audio is a little distorted on the video, the live performance sounded great though!

The column started in 1992/3 and the site has articles up until 2004 so is a great collection, documentation and snapshot in time of the Sydney and Australian electronic music & hip hop community, gigs and artists
