Sick Puppies set to Lap up SJ's Energy

When: Wednesday May 23, 2001

Like most teenage bands, they have a long way to go, but Triple J's Sydney uneathed winners Sick Puppies have a substantial head start on their garage jamming compatriots.

The raw energy on stage of front man Shimon Moore on vocals and guitar alone proves they have what it takes in the blow-the-roof-off stakes, but add the blistering bass of Emma Anzai and Macedonian and Limp Biskit influenced drumming of Chris Mileski you get a dynamic young outfit.

They just released their debut single, Every Day, through Transistor Music, the modest mob who say they are responsible for the extraordinary success of Melbourne teenager Vanessa Amorosi. Moore and Anzai met in the music rooms of Mosman High School on Sydney's North Shore in 1997, with their mutual love of silverchair initiating their collaboration.

Mileski was the final addition to the band, after his enthusiastic father suggested to Shimon he would be ideal.

Look closely at Moore and you may recognise him as the lead actor in the family movie Selkie. With the money he made from that the trio cut a self-funded CD which they called Dogs Breakfast. Sick Puppies play at SJ's Hotel tonight.
