"Porter St Steve"

Down in Wollongong, Steven Robinson has become something of a local hero doing wonderful things to nurture an increasingly healthy local indie scene. Behind the mild mannered "entrepreneur" who has turned the Oxford into a music mecca is a mild mannered musician who has produced an extremely independent album of his own. The Porter Street Tapes, written, arranged, performed, paid for and produced entirely by himself, for his own Extremely Independent Records label. He's in Sydney to launch it, sort of, at Round Midnight. - The Drum Media

"Thirroul band's TV break"

Thirroul band ATE under the leadership of Steve Robinson, have turned musical fame into television fame with a stint on Foxtel's Aurora channel.
The band recently took time out from a busy schedule to appear on Foxtel's Daz and Gaz Radio Show.
The show features the comedic talents of Darren Sanders and Garry Who, along with musical talent.
So far the show has featured the likes of The Radiators, Dave Tice and Bob Evans, and members of Midnight Oil.
Robinson said ATE was asked to appear on the show after performing at the Laugh Garage - Parramatta's original comedy club.
"Musical acts were featured at the club after the comedy as an initiative to diversify the audience base," he said.
"I'm not sure that we brought anyone but the audience that was there stayed longer.
"Garry (Who) really liked a couple of our songs and asked us to be on the TV show.
"We were really flattered to be included. It actually inspired us to record the songs."
Robinson said the footage for the show featured the band performing live at the Laugh Garage.
"It's a great show and I don't cringe at the thought of people seeing our clip," he said.
For Robinson comedy is in his blood. He has also performed alongside the likes of Anthony Morgan, Peter Berner, Mikey Robbins, Akmal, Mick Meredith and the Doug Anthony Allstars.
You can see ATE in the coming weeks on Channel 183 or at Ryan's Hotel on July 31. - The Advertiser

Bio

Money Killed Jonny originated in the early 90s under the title Jaw-Box as a live project for Ed Lee and Steven Robinson. After recording and producing Wollongongs first CD release, creating the iconic venue the Oxford Tavern and establishing the successful recording studio Studio Arts, the band was much needed fun on stage.

Steven moved to Sydney and became a regular at the Hopetoun and Excelsior Hotels in Surry Hills performing his songs with musicians from Leonardos Bride and Welter and from the bands of Jackie Orszaczky and David Lane.

 Ed formed Tungari with Lenore Lovegrove and Noah Hampson. They were quickly accepted into the world music scene sharing the stage with greats such as Jimmy Little. 

 With Steven returning to Wollongong and Tungari taking a break, Money Killed Jonny reformed with Noah on sax and percussion. Described as The best kept secret in Sydney the band performed a number of infamous shows in venues throughout Sydney including the Basement, the State Theatre, the Sydney Town Hall and the Telstra Super Dome. They also appeared live on TVS Television Australia and Foxs Aurora channel.

Money Killed Jonny released their self titled debut album early in 2012 and gained acceptance on FBi and Eastside radio.

 Andrew Rankin on double bass, Matt Bourne on percussion and Lenore Lovegrove with vocals and percussion joined the band for the second album Cool Hand.

 Cool Hand has been so well received that the first run has sold out. As testimony to its surprising broad appeal the album has been picked up by Adult Contemporary and Jazz radio stations such as ABC FM and 89.7 Eastside FM, and also indie rock/pop stations such as FBi FM.
