Canberra bands trash talking prison rules b-ball videos [With poll]

By johnboy - 13 March 2012 16

you are here

This Saturday the old Toast Courtyard (above where Electric Shadows used to lurk? Erm.. current reference… up the stairs from the Indo Cafe!) plays host to four of Canberra’s most accomplished bands AND a prison rules basketball comp between the bands.

This madness could, of course, only be the product of You Are Here:

Triple J Unearthed winners The Ellis Collective, Waterford (who have released new album ‘Say OK’) Groovin’ The Moo and Foreshore crowd favourites Fun Machine and Super Best Friends (who have supported Children Collide and Regurgitator) are famed across Canberra and beyond for their amazing live shows. While their musical abilities are beyond doubt, it is time for us to put them to the ultimate test and see which of them is the best at… BASKETBALL! FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER! B-Ball Band Bash (Prison Rules) will see the bands face off against each other in three on three basketball matches. Two bands go head to head with the loser playing a set until one band is crowned the basketball champion – that is if they can defeat our SPECIAL GUEST TEAM (who may or may not be the aliens from Space Jam).

The Ellis Collective provided this effort:


Super Best Friends have a strong showing:


And what else would we expect from Fun Machine:


Waterford have stuck to highlighting their own skills:


We’ll find out on Saturday who’s the best b-ball team. But who do you think has made the best video?

Which Canberra band has the best trash talk video?

Do they get to put safety pins in their wristbands?

There’s my sympathy vote for you, Mr Nut.

I personally fear your Collective will get toasted like a bagel.

I keep hitting refresh but The Ellis Collective’s votes stay the same.

I know all those words, but that doesn’t make sense.

Well no – it appears The Ellis Collective got their shared mum and dad to vote. or are too busy training.

Also judging by those votes, the ellis collective aren’t even good enough at basketball to have access to the internet.

Yes, you can do quite likeable Fun in several ways but do you not have any modesty on the self-promotion front??

Endrey 6:31 pm 13 Mar 12

So who has placated the Waldorf residents on this occasion? Better watch out that you don’t “affect the general amenity of the area” and get kicked out of the space.

Yes I’m still bitter about Toast’s closure. But it wouldn’t surprise me if the same whingers got up this event for causing them a little bit of inconvenience.
