Together they have forged a unique sound, which has seen them win the Triple J Unearthed competition (Dec.’06), perform at The Falls Festival, Pyramid Rock Festival and play along side artists like Mix Master Mike (Invisibl Skratch Piklz/Beastie Boys), Peanut Butter Wolf (Stones Throw), DJ Cash Money, The Herd and TZU.
