restructuring the site slightly

I'm restructuring the site slightly to make it easier to link the information together more seamlessly and to present it better too. some links might change as I move things around.

also many people have given permission for their photos & flyers to be included on the site - hopefully the restructure will make this easier also, so then I can start uploading them (to save changing more stories later)


update 15/02/2009 : sorry, there's currently a problem with the flyers (after a site upgrade) - hopefully this will be working again soon

Trans:Com T newsletters & label

The Transmission Communications / Trans:Com label published newsletters called "T" from 1994 to 2006 (& possibly longer - I only have them up to 2006). These newsletters are a great insight into the label and bands released on the label as well as commentary about the Brisbane community in general - different styles are mentioned from experimental, electronic, techno, industrial & more.


the wayback machine has archived pages from their current site url back to 2000*/

the label's previous site url, is archived from 1998 - 2003 on the wayback machine*/

Murray Antill aka Stormboy - myspace bio

biography from

About murray antill
Mounting a successful comeback in the music game is something of an impossible mission, especially if you’ve turned your back on a sky-rocketing career to spend the best part of a decade hidden away in a rainforest in northern Australia. But Brisbane-based producer and live act Murray Antill has handled the return from the wilderness with ease, blowing a new generation of local clubbers away with his dark and dirty take on the progressive and tech house sound.

It all kicked off for Antill in the late 1990s, when he was best known in Brisbane clubland as seminal house/trance act Stormboy and half of psy-trance duo Alphanaut. As Stormboy Antill was the pre-eminent live act of the time, racking up supports for the likes of John Digweed, Richie Hawtin and Jeff Mills, having his track 'Voices' featured in the classic Australian TV series The Secret Life Of Us, and releasing two well-received EPs and a self-titled album – Brisbane street magazine Time Off lauded 1997's Stormboy as 'A cornerstone for Brisbane and Australian electronic music.'
