"Cooperblack's The Shiny Side is a stunning debut album. Combining staccato beats, crazy soundbites and ethereal vocals, Cooperblack cannot be easily classified.Cooperblack is the alter-ego of Jeremy Conlon, and he effectively uses this guise to explore all manner of styles and compositions.Reminiscent of the approach that Vincent Giarrusso takes with the Underground Lovers, Conlon stretches Cooperblack from the gentle melodies of Taken Away (It's All Fine) to the discordant wall of noise that is the opening track, Special Today.

Standout tracks are the hypnotic Buttermilk Tiger, the smooth, upbeat seesawtrace remix of Bring It Back_korupt mix, and the album closer Taken Away (It's All Fine).

Multi-instrumentalist Conlon has constructed The Shiny Side from the ground up, effectively layering all manner of sounds and instruments into an eclectic array of musical excursions.

While Cooperblack is sonically exciting, the songs rise to a new level when augmented by the lyrics and vocals of Max Bowden. The Shiny Side is - pun intended - a polished accomplishment.


Cooperblack are a Darwin based band laying out tunes with a post punk electro /rock feel..[ with a dash of the eighties]. Cooperblack released an new 6 track CD "Soft Robot", in 2006 which recieved airplay on TrIpleJ, Mix 100 and various community radio stations around Australia.

The band in finer detail..

Cooperblack is an odd mix. Always evolving musically, the members of the band are really quite different people. Simon [The Hungarian] is the mad Professor.... bending keys and theramin the way Hendrix would have if he were born in land of no guitars. Oliver [The German] is the funniest...and has seen more bands play that we have had hot dinners combined..and brings those performances and memories to the band..often shocking us in good faith. Jeremy [The Australian] studied classical music and has vast music retail and back catalogue brain, often reciting catalogue numbers of record releases like he has turrets.......We like to have fun..and our music should be enjoyed..danced to..and thought about.......and destroyed.....and eaten...and breathed in...and spat out.....

We all love good music, from David Bowie, Nina Hagen, The Doors, The Sex Pistols to....Bloc Party, Interpol, The Velvet Underground, Pumpin trance and Electro stuff like Gerling, Dj Shadow..and the list continues..there is so much good music to listen to...

Lyrically the words can be thoughtful and romantic....and can be completely random, often putting things that have nothing to do with each other together, to create hybrids words and feelings...
