Muzzy Pep Rides Wave of Success Into Maitland

Who: Muzzy Pep
Where: Bank Hotel
When: Saturday September 9, 2000

NEWCASTLE band MUZZY PEP is gearing up for its appearance at the Bank Hotel in Maitland Saturday September 9.

The band, who were winners of the Triple J Unearthed competition in 1998 have endured extensive tours throughout Australia, cementing a strong reputation in the Aussie rock scene.

In the live arena is where the band really shines. It plays every show like it could be the last, with high energy and swift execution.

The band hit the road immediately after the Unearthed win, playing around 140 shows up and down the East Coast of the country last year alone.

By March 1999 the band had played most of the East Coast twice, spending all available time off recording follow-up EP This Is Not Art.

The single Cliche Zoo , became the band's next hit for Triple J as Muzzy Pep began writing material for what was to become their debut album Moments In Weightlessness while continuing to tour constantly.

The band were also included on compilations such as the JOHNNY YOUNG All My Loving compilation, alongside NANCY VANDAL and THE PORKERS , which resulted in the bands national debut television appearance on E!News.

The band also featured on the Sony Playstation compilation alongside Fatboy Slim, Jebediah, The Prodigy and Jamiroquai after winning the 1998 Extreme Games Band comp.
