Southend Rainbows have unashamedly plundered rock's past to arrive at a rare, refreshing and ruthless sound: always passionate, endlessly atmospheric. An antidote to the lacklustre works polluting the airwaves. Shaking off 30 years worth of rust and decay, the James Packer EP is very likely the most inspirational rock music ever heard in this country. Midnight Oil meets Mykki Blanco. The lead single, "Australian Sun", is an ode to the cosmopolitan inner-city suburb of Manly, with a heady and nostalgic video using Super-8 footage from the Hawke years.
