Starting as a Sole Trader (Geddit?) David Norris looked through all the Brisbane bands he loved. Wrote them down, and started to cross off the ones he either had no shot of managing, or didn't want to get involved with. SHELLFIN was the first one to get crossed off the list as they were, in his opinion "Too much of a shambles" to get involved with. About 2 weeks later he saw them perform and decided "Fuck it. These disorganised bunch of fucking stoners will be a great challenge."

Getting frustrated with the lack of heavy/stoner rock events, David joined forces with Michelle O'Rance (Tria Mera/4zZz Metal Up Your Accessway/FasterLouder) to start putting on some events which bridged the huge gap between rock and metal in the Brisbane community, as well as way to gain greater networking opportunities for their clients. Together, they co-managed an event at Brisbane's premier metal club Monstrothic, feating Brisbane's own DEAD END KINGS in the top billing. Plus, Daniel said he'd show Michelle was a meatspin was if we had them back.

PROWLER from Byron Bay are the new project from ex-Fort drummer, Deon Driver. Currently recording their first EP the band have a highly innovative and technically infused sound, they boast one mammoth ear splitting slab of groove metal. Delivering an explosion of sound with influences such as Pantera, Megadeth and Mastodon.

MICASA are an up-and-coming 3-piece progressive stoner rock band from Brisbane. After 12 months of fine tuning their sound, they have hit the ground running having opened the night for the premiere Soul Trader gig in April. They are continually impressing not only the fans but the bands they share the stage with. They are also expecting their first EP release shortly.
