Australia Week :: Black Knight and Highway Blonde

Black KnightOn the first day of Australia Week we are looking back to two bands that made their appearances in our inaugural year of 2009. And unfortunately, we haven’t heard anything from either of these guys since. Highway BlondeBlack Knight and Highway Blonde (formerly Smart Artists) are both solidly in the rock genre. Highway Blonde is a bit more modern rock while Black Knight is a bit more on the post-punk side of things. Over the years I’ve found myself humming a tune or two from these guys. It’s always a testament to me whether a band is good or not if one of their songs can find their way into your head just out of the blue.

So, without anything new since 2009 from either, check out a couple of videos from their glorious pasts….

Island Sounds from Two Hemispheres

Smart ArtistsFroglix welcomes the modern rock sound of Australia’s Smart Artists to the broadcast! These cats from Queensland have developed a strong following down under and are beginning to expand that following around the globe. We’re happy to help spread the word and are keyed up to be featuring (2) tracks, “Inside Moves” and “Annie”, that will appear on their next album, Highway Blonde, scheduled for release later this year.
Cashbook Clique
Next we hip-hop from the Land of Oz to the isle of Jamrock with Cashbook Clique. Their latest single entitled “Galis Caliba” was released as part of a compilation disc from Street of Dreams Records called Ghetto Genesis, Vol II. The confident vocals for Cashbook are provided by Buff Bay’s Dwayne Valentine who conjours up a sound redolent of Shaba and Shaggy with the dead-on timing of JR Gong. The dancehall coming out of the island paradise right now is innovative, imaginative and blends the best traits of the US’ urban hip-hop scene with the colourful island influences that are so prominent in Jamaican music. Valentine and Cashbook Clique are no exception as they deliver a sound that is phat, fresh and full of tropical goodness!
