о группе
The Monitors were an Australian studio group formed in 1980 and fueled largely by the creative genius of established music producer Mark Moffatt and advertisiing guru Terry McCarthy. Moffatt had already worked with the likes of the Saints and would later collaborate in the studio with Mondo Rock and Mental As Anything among others.

The Monitors scored their biggest hit with a question, what will we be 'Singing In The 80s', quite an appropriate question given its time of release, mid 1980. The song reached #16 on the Oz charts and was followed by another top 40 hit 'Nobody Told Me' (#32).

Arguably the most memorable aspect to The Monitors short lived tenure were the Blakeney twins, Gayle and Gillian, who became the public face of the group. In the video clip to 'Singing In The 80s' the then 13 year olds donned KISS makeup, and many thought that The Monitors really were a couple of Aussie school kids, a misconception not fought against by Moffatt and McCarthy who employed the image of the Blakeney girls for the promo clips to their next two singles 'Nobody Told Me' and 'Having You Around'.
I can recall having a heated debate with friends at one time over who was the artist behind the hit 'Singing In The 80s'. They argued strongly that it was the Buggles. Well, that wasn't the case but I can understand their confusion over the issue, given the Buggles were also a studio project (of producers Trevor Horn & Geoff Downes) and their hit 'Video Killed The Radio Star' (released late '79) similarly posed a question over the state and future direction of pop music. The Buggles phrase proved to be strongly prophetic.
Whilst 'Singing In The 80s' is a great song in its own right, I have a soft spot for their follow up hit 'Nobody Told Me' (no connection with the posthumously released 1984 hit for John Lennon).

The Mother Truckers


Courtesy of www.themothertruckers.com :: The Mother Truckers are a kick-ass rock 'n'
roll band from Austin, Texas. Their music is high-octane Americana, blending hard
hitting electric guitars with soaring vocals and irreverent lyrics. They take the
Texas mix of Country, Blues and Rock to a higher place with their creative
songwriting and high energy live performances.
The core of the group is the singing songwriting team of Josh Zee and Teal Collins.
Josh Zee (vocals/lead guitar) has recorded 2 major label records on the SONY/Work
label as the singer/guitarist and songwriter for the Rock group "Protein". He toured
extensively throughout the U.S. on "The Warped Tour". They also toured Europe and
Japan as part of MTV Asia Summer Fest. Teal Collins (vocals/ukulele/guitar) Teal's
early introduction to music was through her dad, famous Jazz disc jockey Al,
"Jazzbeaux" Collins. Teal has recorded sessions for Grammy award winning producers
Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston) and Stephen Bray (Madonna). Teal has received
Gold and Platinum albums for her work on Shanice (Motown records) and Third Eye
Blind's album Blue.
Josh and Teal met at an open mic night years ago. In 2002 they both decided to focus
their energies on what would become The Mother Truckers. Their first CD was the
self-released "Something Worth Dying for". In 2007 they released "Broke, Not Broken"
(Funzalo Records). The album was met with critical acclaim and received airplay
nationwide. The Austin American Statesman's Michael Corcoran placed the album on his
top 10 list as did the Village Voice's Chuck Eddy. Austin's beloved KGSR deemed it
#57 out of the top 107 albums of the year beating out the likes of the Rolling Stones
and Bruce Springsteen! At SXSW The Austin Music Awards named The mother Truckers
"Best Roots Rock Band Of The Year".
2008 sees The Mother Truckers rocking even harder with the soon-to-be released CD
"Let's All Go to Bed". Josh reunites with "Protein" drummer Dan Thompson on this one,
and rounding out the sound is Austin music scene veteran Danny G on the Bass.
The Mother Truckers have been touring steadily and playing summer festivals like
Willie Nelson's 4th of July picnic, High Sierra and Bumbershoot, and have opened for
such acts as Merle Haggard, Dwight Yokum, Hank Williams 3, Robert Earl Keen and the
Supersuckers to name a few.

Teal Collins - lead vocals, ukelele, guitar
