If the sounds of The Cactus Channel don’t get you going in the morning then perhaps you need a little more whiskey in your coffee. Playing what they call “Soul music for the after-hours”, The Cactus Channel may have members that were born in the ’90s but they play like they’re living in the seventies. We’re talking bass bumps, screaming organs and all the rest. Have you heard about their new 7” single ‘Cobaw/Fools Gold’? Its clip was shot on location in Cobaw and surrounds, with the end result being described as “Arid Australiana goes dark film funk goes schlock scream movie tone poem.” The band will get on down with their bad selves at The Barwon Club, Geelong on September 12.
