Do you expect me to talk? No Mr Bond I expect you to PARTY!

Crazy times indeed. I don't know where to start.

OK, my band website The Resonance Online has had a sweet upgrade. I went for a lighter style. The design seems a little controversial. The low contrast is a matter for contention, so is the strangely flashing pics. I feel quite good about it. I intend to to add some more new technology, like a bit of flash for the photos page and some underlying technology. Broadband is sweet.

I finally got my new Sony-Ericsson K800i mobile phone and have been going a bit photo crazy with the decent quality 3.2mega pixel camera. The recent Res gig at Kazino Royale gave me a few good targets. I haven't sorted the email checking ability of the phone, but I'm digging the MP3/AAC/Video player. I even have our last gig as a video on my phone, geeky, geek, geeek!

Piotre took some groovy photos of the James Bond themed gig too you can check them out on the photo page of the Res site.

Poor Bec (Res Singer) hurt her neck with all the post gig partying and had to cancel her gig with her other outfit Brash & Sassy. So good healing vibes to Bec.

Our new manager/collaborator Jeremy Balius and I have been kicking it into gear with lots of plans of world domination. The Internet has really thrown a spanner into the works for the music industry. So we are getting into some crazy ideas. We are going to do a few bootlegs for DJs to get some vibe, continue to increase our online presents and book some gigs for the Australian summer festival season. Jeremy has written a great press release of immense silliness that is sure to get some attention.

So fresh and so clean

I have begun redesigning the Res site. The previous site is dark and a bit plain. I wanted to add some spice to it, give it a bit more weirdness and interaction and just express that things are happening. the MySpace page is now linked on the top. The background and content on MySpace will also get an update (I use the same background). I will have to get my web tech, Brett to help a bit, but it should come out sweet. Here is a preview. It'll be up soon..

Click to enlarge. The pics will be washed out, then will be properly visible when you pass you mouse over them. I have kept a few of the previous elements for continuity. I would love some feedback, so comment away.

MC Killamatic from the Belgian Rap crew Hz Family has been jamming in the Res studio. We should finally have some grooves done for his European release in the next week or so. MC Optamus from Downside should be adding to a Belgian/Aussie collab. I have a little mix of some of the pre-production rough ideas so you can get an idea. It includes a little bit of our 'Live&Let Die' bond theme for the Semikazi gig on the weekend. We hope to record this properly soon with jono's vocals. Here's the mix


These grooves are quite a bit different to other Res tracks. Check the Res website link on the right for an idea of some lush Res music. Working on some tough boyish rap tracks has been fun and indulgent. A bit of a flashback to ARG days. He he ;-)

While on the James Bond fixation, you must see the new Bond trailer. Core blimey, Eva Green is hot.

More music and links soon, check the Res site for more too..
