Electro-Rock Night At The Step Inn - Super Massive + Elation + Dance In Circles DJs

Super Massive were awarded the Best Alternative Artist Award at the 2007 MusicOz Awards in November, for their evocative and as-yet-unreleased synth/rock song “Fists”, which you can sneak preview on the band’s myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/supermassivesounds.

The band is the songwriting co-project of drummer/composer Glenn Abbott (formerly of ARIA winning band Machine Gun Fellatio & his own solo project The Bryan Ferrysexual Experience) and singer/writer Malina Hamilton-Smith.

Together with electric bass genius John D. Young (Chuck Berry, Marcia Hines, Vanda & Young) and talented young guitarist Marc Malouf, the four deliver a powerful and entertaining show that seamlessly blends loops, synths, electro sounds, deep funkiness and the lustiness of a full-blooded rock band, in creative and catchy, pop-structured songs.

Says Hamilton-Smith, "It's an entertaining and energetic show that people can either sit back and watch, or get up and dance to. There's a lot of variety in the songs and sounds to keep it interesting for the audience, and we drive it to the highest intensity we can, to make it a real thrilling, exhilarating night."

The band has been steadily building a following at live shows in Sydney over the past two years, performing to full houses at venues including Home Nightclub, Will & Toby’s Supper Club and Glebe Street Fair as well as at the Beach Hotel, Byron Bay.

The band's debut EP, which will include the award-winning song “Fists”, is due for release in March, however, a numbered Limited Edition Pre-Release CD will be available for purchase at the show.

Expect a steamy summer evening loaded with slamming, dirty-groove, electro-laced, beguiling tunes, as award-winning Sydney band Super Massive bring their unique blend of rock and dance music to Brisbane over the Australia Day long weekend, as part of their first Queensland tour.
