Damanged Calm - All About You by 612 ABC Brisbane published on 2013-07-17T07:23:36Z ABOUT THE BAND Here is our story from my (Nick) perspective. Just over 3 years ago I began working as a Storeman at Adrad, in Rocklea (Brisbane). Jim (Drums) was already working there. We became good mates because we talked music. Jim was already in a band, along with Rus (Guitar). Both Jim and Rus wanted to do more musically than their current band were doing. At that same point in time I developed a taste for playing the Bass (I'd played rhythm guitar for 20 odd years either in my room or jamming with a friend(s), didn't matter, I just loved to play). We, Rus, Jim and myself, started to jam together and pretty soon realised this could be a pretty good band. Not in the sense of chasing rock n roll fame, but the shear enjoyment in our sound together. We did one unpaid (charity) gig and another unpaid private party gig. It was during rehearsals for this that Nathan (keyboards/Horn) joined us. He had previously played with both Rus and Jim. Rehearsals during 2012 were non existent because Rus had to have surgery and then Rus's mum was diagnosed with cancer. He became fulltime carer until her passing in December. We have released a demo cd - 5 tracks - and putting the finishing touches on a further 7 songs to go on to a cd. We are not signed up to any company/private entity, nor do we have a manager.
