Since moving back to Melbourne Al has mostly played music with  Straightjacket Nation, The UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver, Lower Plenty, Eastlink, Russell Street Bombings  and sometimes solo as  Snake . Al studied Politics and Australian Indigenous studies and has worked in warehouses, shops, markets and posted up posters.  Amy Hill   lives and works in Melbourne, Victoria. When not playing in local bands  Constant Mongrel, The Backstabbers  or  Sleepless Nights , Amy paints images of recurring shapes and geometric forms in unknown spaces. Greyed arches on vacant plains, impossible shadows and absent mindscapes. The wandering consciousness of these paintings seem to shift us into ill-ease by combining inconsistent pattern and familiarity. The pastel glare flattens diminishing space into a blurry kind of dystopia like prozac or denial.   Photo: Xanthe Waite
