Super Massive - live electronic rock on the Northern Beaches - November 24th

MusicOz Award nominees Super Massive bring their creative and visceral electro/rock/alternative pop music to the Mona Vale Hotel on Saturday November 24th.

Sydney band Super Massive are currently nominees for a 2007 MusicOz Award: An impressive achievement considering that the band has not yet released a single CD, nor had a scrap of airplay.

Super Massive is the creative partnership of singer/writer Malina Hamilton-Smith and drummer/composer Glenn Abbott, best known for his work with popular Australian band Machine Gun Fellatio.

The two found a mutual interest in aiming to create the perfect symbiosis of multi-layered synthscapes and the visceral impact of a full rock band.
