Offbeat Antics


Local band in tune with study
By Lee-Ann Khoh

STUDYING full-time while financing your band's debut EP involves making a few sacrifices.

Offbeat Antics lead vocalist Azlan Mohamed Noh said the band members worked part-time on minimum wage to fund their music career.

"We are each putting over $1200 into [making the EP]," the Murdoch University student said.

"The recording, mixing and mastering will take two months while we book a venue and then promote.

"Working gets us funds to continue doing this until we don't need to work anymore and uni allows us to have an alternative career just in case."

Drummer and Curtin design student Cam Pretsel will be doing the cover and promotional art for the EP.

He has previously designed the band's merchandise and posters.

"It's pretty difficult to write songs while uni is on but that's the way it is," he said.

"I loved to draw as a kid so it was really natural to go through to a design course as you can easily fill up 100 pages of sketches and concepts."

Pretsel, Mohamed Noh, guitarist Andrew Cowie and bassist Phil Lovatt formed Offbeat Antics as high school students in 2004.

[listening |mclusky - day of the deadringers]

Hey guys - guess what??

The Offbeat Antics are gonna be on TV! Twice!

Tomorrow afternoon (Friday 16th) at 4:30, and then repeated on Saturday 17th at 10:30 am... the boys will be interviewed and perform two songs ('My Way', and the newie 'Young and Free' which is awesome by the way) on Teen Wire on Access 31.

You should check it out.

And while I'm here - there's other great news for the boys. They got into Next Big Thing, a massivley huge competition whose past winners include Snowman, John Butler and The Fault. The prizes for this comp are a pretty big deal, so if you can make it to the heat on June 28 at The Rosemount you should definitely be there.

Congrats to the boys for getting second place - and over $2000 worth of prizes - at Ampfest last Saturday. Best show yet!

- Bella

Good evening kids how are we all?!

The sites been rather quite recently, and I must appoligise I have been neglecting the place, to busy with this and that but I promise a large number of updates in the next week! Icons, banners, colour bars even maybe. Anywho there is some news I wish to share.

The boys have just got home from a long hard day of recording. They are tired, hung over and I am sure their ears are still ringing from the many sweet tunes that they recorded. But all is well! Five songs down, and they are set! I've heard some theories from an inside source that says that the price of the new ep is to be $5, thats one dollar for each song, cheaper than Itunes! XD! So kids it looks like our speakers will soon be blasting out the all to sweet sounds of the new Offbeat Antics Ep!

The songs that shall apear on the Ep are

My Way,
Heavenly Sin,
Major F,
Out To Market

They are having a few gigs within the next month or so, here are the dates so far:

the castle - march 27

the stadium - april 1

the rosemount - may 8

may 13 - the swan basement

^^ will see you all at the 13th I am sure

So until we next meet to listen to the rocking tunes of our favourite beat adios kiddly winks

(btw was thinking about putting a small interveiw with the lads in question a little latter how does that sound?)

Offbeat Antics

Woo for my first entry!

So guess what kids? Offbeat Antics are recording as of Sunday. How awesome is that? The new songs will be uploaded to their myspace in a few weeks' time.

The guys also have 4 gigs coming up. This Monday is the Castle band comp semifinal from 7:30. April 1 is their first 40 minute set at the Stadium Sportsbar from 8pm. May 8 they feature in a showcase at the Rosemount from 8pm, and May 13 they play the Swan Basement from 8pm.

Oh the excitement! Hopefully everyone who hasn't seen them recently (or at all) will go check them out.. their new stuff is pretty rockin' and Azlan has learnt some new moves :P They'd love to see you at any of the gigs to help cheer them on, crowd support is a big factor.

And just to keep things interesting..Collapse )

Testing...testing...hello? Uh...hello? Can you all hear me? Okay, excellent!

So. This is an unofficial community dedicated to and all about the West Australian band Offbeat Antics. Basically it’s for fans of the band to meet, greet and share stories, photos, icons and the love that is these guys and their music.

Basic stuff guys, be repsectful to the band, don't post dodgy stuff or go all trollish on me. I'm sure its not going to be a problem and if it is then I'll just delete the damn thing. Be good and have some fun!

some photos! because I had to post SOMETHING to do with the band...Collapse )
