Mrs. Moto by Martin Cilia featuring Paul Johnson

When I brought my band to California from Australia last year I had plans to record a film clip of Mrs Moto, from my 2013 album "Going to Kaleponi", hopefully with Paul Johnson. I ran it past him and he agreed.

We decided to film at Huntington Beach. It was the perfect day for it. We got some great footage along and under the pier and also live as part of my set. Afterwards Paul surprised me by asking if we'd like him to edit the clip. We jumped at the chance to have him do it.

Paul went above and beyond - sourcing live audio of us playing the song onstage (thanks Chrome Oxide) and some extra footage from the Purple Orchid (thanks Unsteady Freddie -- would you hire a cameraman called "unsteady"?).

We love the clip. I hope you do too.

Martin Cilia @ Lucky 13 Garage
Buy tickets here ---> http://bit.ly/Vtm6vd

Martin Cilia is Australia's premier surf rock guitarist and also long time member of legendary Australian band, The Atlantics. He's taking the sounds of summer to Moorabbin for a touch of rockabilly surf.

"Martin has been championing the surf sound down under as lead guitarist for the great Aussie surf band, THE ATLANTICS, and he is clearly one of the best $#&%*! surf guitarists to be found anywhere."
Paul Johnson, The Surfaris (writer of Mr Moto)

He has taken a step into the solo spotlight with the release of three solo albums to date, the latest being "Surfersaurus". In live performance Martin and his band draw songs from the Atlantics repertoire, including the classic "Bombora" as well as classics such as Pipeline, Miserlou, Wipe Out, Walk Don't Run.

Supported by the Jordan C Thomas Trio

Jordan C Thomas is a singer/songwriter working in the styles of Jazz, Swing and Rockabilly with master skill and effortless cool. In this niche he is one of the country’s most sought after musicians - playing with such luminaries as Imelda May, Royal Crown Revue, Brian Setzer, Deke Dickerson, The Porkers, the Louisville Sluggers, Lee Rocker, and many more.

The Jordan C Thomas trio is an empowering statement against the pre-packaged ‘flash in the pan’ pop idols that clog the airwaves. The sound is passionately traditional and authentic, but it transcends eras, fads and fashions.  It’s something else. It's cool, it's old school and it's coming soon to a venue near you...

Martin Cilia is Australia's premier surf rock guitarist and also long time member of legendary Australian band, The Atlantics. He's taking the sounds of summer to Hobart for a pre summer beach party with the Sin & Tonics.

The Sin & Tonics

This Tasmanian Three Piece act has been building momentum since 2009 with their first nine track release “Happy Hour” - a total self-produced mini album which received praise Australia wide. The band prides itself on its open-minded approach to both sound and performance. The Sin & Tonics are the sort of band that can and does play alongside punk bands, swing bands, country, psychobilly and Rockabilly acts, blending well but still standing apart.

The Break & Martin CiliaTHE BREAK
A Double Dose Of Pounding Surf
with Martin Cilia (The Atlantics)
Manly Fisho’s – Friday, 1st April, 2011

When the three remaining members of Midnight Oil formed Australia’s most exciting new surf band last year with Violent Femmes bass player Brian Ritchie, their first club date was at a packed-out Manly Fisho’s. The guys returned in November for sold out shows with mates The Hoodoo Gurus. With Fisho’s set to close its doors any day now, fans have one final chance to catch The Break’s incredible live performance at the venue. The Break have been busy touring their strange and wonderful brand of interplanetary surf since the April release of their hugely acclaimed debut album ‘Church of the Open Sky’.  With stand-out performances at major festivals across Australia, including Byron and Woodford and a now legendary appearance closing ABC’s Spicks and Specks, The Break is fully amped and ready to party. The band will be available for meet and greet/signings after the show.


The Manly show offers a double helping of surf with a bill that includes The Atlantics’  surf rock guitarist Martin Cilia, whose live set will feature fellow Atlantics Michael Smith and Jeff Cripps and will include classic favourites like ‘Bombora’ as well as tunes from Cilia’s solo surf guitar albums.


Kicking off the evening will be Central Coast singer/songwriter/guitarist Mark Moldre whose swag of catchy indie pop songs are perfectly embellished by the impressive skills of percussionist Adam Lang on suitcase drums, lap steel and banjo. 

 
Tickets for this show are priced at $20 + b/f in advance and $25 on the door.
Pre-booking strongly recommended at www.moshtix.com.au,
