Debut 7 inch release
Pepper Snake bw. The Dap (Hope Street)

Cactus Channel are a dynamic 10-piece high school band outta Melbourne. They’ve been gigging around town for a while now and have recently appeared alongside the likes of Charles Walker and the Dynamites. The band’s new single “Pepper Snake” is out on Hope Street Recordings, and much like stablemates The Putbacks, Cactus Channel are laying down no-nonsense heavy funk. There’s plenty of heat coming off the new Cactus Channel 7 inch; The record made it’s debut last week and is getting a great response from everyone.

Northside Records is excited to welcome Cactus Channel for an instore appearance and the official launch of the new single on Saturday January 29. The full 10-piece band will be instore along with DJ Manchild spinning some warm-up tunes and dropping science. It promises to be an exciting and very busy afternoon, so get in early to get your copy of the single and claim your spot on the dancefloor. The band will play at approximately 3pm, with Manchild getting busy on either side.

SAT. JAN 29 – 3PM. 236 Gertrude St. Fitzroy. Free!

Expect a more detailed post about the new 45 (Cactus Channel: Pepper Snake bw. The Dap. Hope Street Recordings. 7-inch. 500 copies only) in the next couple of days. Copies are available now – and are strictly limited, so if you think you want one of these hot 45’s, do it now before it’s too late.

“The Cactus Channel hit you with a hard funk groove to rival the likes of James Brown or The Meters and you find you just can’t stop moving. But what’s that? They’re still high school?! With a musical maturity beyond their years you know that this 10 piece collective will go far. And that they’ll get a whole lotta rumps shaking along the way” DJ Manchild (PBS 106.7 ‘The Breakdown’)
