Artists that really commit to their vision, that disregard industry trends and avoid conformity. Over many years, artists including Mogwai, Tool, Jakob, The Dirty Three, Meshuggah and Devin Townsend are a few that have really shocked, surprised and confused me.

We are in current negotiations to launch our latest album, Tree Of The Seas, at the Melbourne Aquarium. Following this we hope to be taking the album on an intergalactic space tour through the stratosphere in search of other lifeforms we can launch the album to.
We are touring to celebrate the release of Tree Of The Seas, which we are all very proud of. For anyone who enjoys something unusual, diverse and evocative, you should come and see Jarek.
Sydney has proven a tough nut to crack on past experience, but it seems that there is a strong community of the post-rock/progressive/experimental types, so we are all really excited and optimistic.
Our colourful guitarist, Brett Cusack, has an electro-rock outfit called Megalove. At one show we all watched him climb up onto a table for a guitar solo, before falling off and bringing the table and dozens of glasses crashing to the floor. Brett was immediately kicked off stage and received a life ban from the venue.
