Independent Artist of the Week: Shady Nasty FBi Radio

Photo by Andreas Damouras

With a name they embody (in a good way), Shady Nasty is also like their music unpredictable, considered and dark.

Straight out of Sydney, Shady Nasty are Kevin, Luca and Haydn. Self-described as blurring the lines between contemporary hip-hop and alternative punk, the trio add jazz (via high school bands) and hardcore to the cacophony of genres they employ. Its blistering, at times primal and perfect for play under the cover of darkness.

After officially coming together in 2015, the band took their time, making music and visuals that satisfied their standards. This slowly-slowly approach marks how theyve continued to operate after releasing the stellar Upwardsbound and 2017s S/T EP they took a brief hiatus this past year, courtesy of an Italian study jaunt. All this has meant theyve had plenty of time to consider what they want to achieve creatively moving forward.

Since then, a steady stream of powerful live sets, the standalone single Jewellery and its accompanying film clip have made their way into the world. The new track leaves an serious impression as it howls into existence, tracing the glory and peril of hotrodding and drifting cars, with peripatetic guitar and lasting vocals.

Expect supplementary shows, visuals and a deliberate debut LP as the year rings out but for now, drift into em

Future Of Media: Every Time You Share A Daily Mail Story, An Independent Journalist Somewhere Dies "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Over the weekend, New Matilda editor Chris Graham spoke on a panel at the Adelaide Festival of Ideas with Amanda Pepe (from the Adelaide Review) and Professor Peter Fray, Co-director of the Centre for Media Transition, University of Technology Sydney. The topic was Future of Media, and specifically asked these questions: Given the 24/7 news cycle and even faster social media platforms, how can we control information? Is this development the ultimate democratisation of what used to be strictly-controlled offerings of the powerful few? Whos making sure were not being duped? Below is a speech Chris Graham prepared, but never delivered (the group just chatted instead).

One of the key questions in todays discussion is given our new, fast-paced media world, how can we control information?

I think the short answer is we cant. And to be honest, I dont think we really should anyway. I think government believes its job is to control information, and I can see some cases where thats obviously necessary national security, commercial in confidence etc etc. But in this day and age I think theres a lot of overreach by government in the control of information. The current prosecution of Witness K in the East Timor oil and gas scandal is a disgraceful, outrageous example of that.

I think traditional media has also felt a strong desire to and indeed has a long history of controlling information. I think theres a lot of overreach in that area as well. Ill give you an example.

Tomorrow, Im getting on a plane to fly to Italy. From there I board a boat in Sicily to sail to Gaza, in Palestine. Im there to report on the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, an international group (with representation in Australia) which, every year or so, organizes a few boats from across the world to try and break the Israeli imposed naval blockade on Gaza.

Now, wherever your politics reside on the question of Israel and Palestine, its undeniably a news story. Its undeniably information in the public interest. In the past, Australian media coverage has either tended to ignore the Flotillas entirely, or tended towards mockery and criticism. And yet, its basically universally accepted save for a few countries that Israels blockade of Gaza is illegal under international law. The Human Rights Council of the United Nations says it is, for example.

Gaza is the worlds largest outdoor prison a jail to almost 2 million people. And yet most of the time, we only see it in the news when Israel is slaughtering people. And even then our media strives for balance as though theres a balanced way to report the deaths of hundreds, sometimes thousands of unarmed Palestinians at the hands of one of the worlds most powerful armies.

Ironically, the only way I can see Australian media taking an interest in....
