"A New Band A Day - Radio Spectacular!!!"

Writing songs as softly LOUD and exciting as Good To Me probably negates the need for soul-searching. Pounding, detached and yet still enough of a love song to give teenagers enough of an excuse to both kiss and grope on dancefloors, it'll scrub your brain clean of lethargy, leaving you alert and alive.

You Light Me Up clicks and clacks, finding itself in the spaces in between the sounds. It's fun enough to make a chorus of "la-a-a-a-a eh-eh-oh" work perfectly. Ghosts and Ghouls isn't as fiendishly frustrating as the early 90's video game of almost the same name, but is just as addictive. It's bouncy, clattering pop with throwaway lyrics like "He thinks he's really fit, he thinks he's the shit, the girls are lining up for him," all over the most insistent rolling piano riff you've heard for ages.

Radio Spectacular are from Adelaide, and so may not be touring in my hemisphere any time soon, but my loss is Oceania's gain. Based on pure guesswork - which for ANBAD is almost comparable to scientific proof - I'm willing to gamble that their gigs are a riot of pop colour, fun and (hopefully) the aforementioned teenage necking. - http://www.anewbandaday.com/2009/02/todays-new-band-radio-spectacular-plus.html

Bio

Telling a love story for a new generation, Harry Whizkid met Pheebs Yeah Baby! On MySpace, and moved across the country so they could make beautiful music together. With their synthesizers combined, they are Radio Spectacular!!! [ba ba da baaaaaaaaaa!]

With an act that combines their musical influences with their passion for photography, vintage clothing, and hand-made CD covers, Radio Spectacular!!! are often happy, angry, dark, and cute all at the same time.

Their new self-titled EP shows an evolution in their catchy home-made Indie-Electro-Pop sound, and features more songs to cuddle, make love, propose and fight to - including singles "Ghosts & Ghouls" and "You Light Me Up".

Closing 2008 with strong support slots - including international acts That 1 Guy [USA] and Uni & Her Ukelele [USA], as well at Australian acts The Blow Waves [Melb] and Lovers Electric [Adel] - Radio Spectacular!!! have started 2009 strongly, winning the People's Choice award at AusmusicSA's 'Louder Than Words' in Port Lincoln and playing the top Indie/Pop stages in town at Transmission LIVE! and WOW – but their biggest achievement so far is their most recent: “You Light Me Up” has been chosen to be used in television and online advertisements for the new range of Canon IXUS cameras over the next 12 months!

Everything has been heating up for Radio Spectacular!!!, but this is just the beginning, as they use this opportunity to catapult themselves into the hearts and minds of the mainstream.
