Style High Club @ zine fair TINA 2005 Newcastle, Australia

the Style High Club performing at 2005 This is Not Art festival in Newcastle, Australia. I thought these guys were great. really nice sounds. perfect for an afternoon in the sun wandering through markets and relaxing after the festival. a nice aussie hip hop band with members from Adelaide & Melbourne is their myspace page

apparently their first album Creativity Department is available nationwide through Obese distribution (in Australia).

the audio is a little distorted on the video, the live performance sounded great though!
