Gimmick genre twists & current fashions or scenes are ditched in favor of top-quality tunes, and a live show that ensures the only thing more drained in the venue than the punters, is the bar.

Biography

Formed at the end of 2010, The MDC started out as any other local Perth band does. But with a strong work ethic the debut EP Heartbreaker! was released late in 2011 after the success of the debut single ’Mr Sugar’ earlier that year.

2012 saw The MDC capitalise on the excellent reviews the Heartbreaker! EP was gaining from local & national press, and significantly increased their live following. The live show was fast becoming the most talked-about aspect of the band, with the energy, passion & general mayhem quite unlike the average local show in a city that is packed to the brim with up & coming bands.

Again a tribute to their constant work ethic, The MDC released their first official video clip for the track ‘Burn’, the second single to be lifted from the Heartbreaker! EP. The launch show in support of the video release turned into one of the highlights of the year for the band, fully selling out The Rocket Room in Northbridge for the second time. (The first being the launch show of the Heartbreaker! EP the previous year) All the while the video itself began to gather online views & generate further gig opportunities which The MDC grasped with both hands, playing show after show & further enhancing their reputation among not only the local live scene, but amongst fellow bands & musicians who had heard through the grape vine that The MDC was one to watch.

The end of 2012 saw The MDC take a break from playing as many shows to focus on writing & recording, eventually heading into the studio with Callum Barter (British India, Big Scary) to begin work on the next EP.

NOBODY’S WATCHING

Written By: The MDC

She says it’s all right, I say I don’t care
Well in the back room, where no one else is there
When nobody’s watching, watching what I do
You know that she’ll never know about you

Well you walked right down to me
Your face it says it all
We’re going to have a ball, oh yeah
And if you’re looking for trouble it has made your way
Looking for a good time todays your lucky day
Well I don’t care about you any other way all right
Come on
Where nobody’s watching…

She says it’s all right, I say I don’t care
Well in the back room, where no one else is there
When nobody’s watching, watching what I do
You know that she’ll never know about you

Well we don’t talk, no we don’t speak
We don’t do anything
One to the left, one to the right
Do you know what I mean & do you feel all right?
Oh, come on
Where nobody’s watching, no one’s watching

She says it’s all right, I say I don’t care
Well in the back room, where no one else is there
When nobody’s watching, watching what I do
You know that she’ll never know about you

She says it’s all right, I say I don’t care
Well in the back room, where no one else is there
She says it’s all right, I say I just don’t care
Well in the back room, where no one else is there
When nobody’s watching, watching what I do
Watching what I do
You know she’ll never know about you

Don’t you look back, have you got something to say

TRAIN WRECK BLUES

Written By: The MDC

I sold my soul the day I learned how to play
And I’ve been losing my mind almost every single day
When you drink kerosene & then you jump in the fire
You’d walk for 8 hours straight just to get a little higher
Well I get what I give, but I never give enough
Then you came along & started showing off your stuff
Well you look like heaven but I’m straight outta hell
Baby I’ve done things that I could never tell you

You’re looking at me, while I’m looking at you
I love how you hate all the things that I do
And I feel I can fly, going out getting drunk getting high
No surprise I’ve got a case of the train wreck blues

Well you can’t always see all the beer for the wine
You’d tread on anybody’s toes just to have a good time
When your bloods turn away you’re never gonna turn back
You could be one pill away from your next heart attack
Well I get what I give, but I never give enough
Then you came along & started showing off your stuff
Well you look like heaven but I’m straight outta hell
Baby I’ve done things that I could never tell you

You’re looking at me, while I’m looking at you
I love how you hate all the things that I do
And I feel I can fly, going out getting drunk getting high
No surprise I’ve got a case of the train wreck blues

Well you look like heaven but I’m straight outta hell
Baby I’ve done things that I can’t tell
Well you look like heaven but I’m straight outta hell
Baby I’ve done things that I could never tell you

You’re looking at me, while I’m looking at you
I love how you hate all the things that I do
And I feel I can fly, going out getting drunk getting high
No surprise I’ve got a case of the train wreck blues
