They come from the East of Melbourne, Australia where the hills are big and the beats are even bigger. Following up their previous EP 'Memoirs Of An Ashtray', Live@Subs returned with the new EP Holiday in Japan fortified with the title track which has been receiving some huge support from Triple J. In keeping with their cheeky nature and definite influences from the likes of Sublime, Bob Marley & The Chilli Peppers, the Holiday In Japan single is all about living the good life and along with five other killer tunes the EP is chockfull of funk-filled riffs and reggae-rockn beats.
Each descending from their own separate musical backgrounds, Live@Subs is an interesting combination of life long musicians. From that of Guitarist/Singer Sub who played with US group The Toledo Show, touring the US during 1997 & 1998, followed by an Australian tour in late '98 finishing at the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival. Or Deef Live@Subs drummer/singer, x-drummer of heavy grooves band Another Race (aka Biscuit), and bassist Wingman. Now playing together after knowing each other since they were in school, "the Subs" boys take a somewhat different approach to their music, enjoying each gig, recording session and tour as one big party/a way of life!
Another highlight for the band was featuring on the new Triple J "Like a version 2" compilation CD with a JJJ live studio recording of "Roll Up" originally by the Long Beach Dub All-Stars.
2007-2008 has seen L@S tour extrensively around Australia and also their first US tour of California and Nevada. The lads are now back in the studio recording their 5th Record, with the aim of getting it out early 2008 while summer is still with us that dwell south of the equator!
All our music is available at Long Beach Records Australia Thanks for all the support.
