Super Best Friends take home Artist of 2012

Super Best Friends

Inspired by the WAMis in Western Australia, the ACT music community now has the MAMAs: the MusicACT Annual Music Awards.

Billed as less of a competition and more a recognition of Canberra’s thriving music scene, Super Best Friends are honoured to be the first local act to take home the MAMAs for Artist of 2012 and Live Performer of 2012.

The awards cap off a massive year for The Bestie Boys. Their HANDSHAKE EP received love on community radio around Australia, with plenty of spins on 4ZZZFM Brisbane, FBi Sydney and 3RRR Melbourne just to name the eastern states. The single No Logo Is A Joke scored rotation on triple j and favourable reviews on
triple j Unearthed, along with the EP tracks Karma Karma and The Bleachers. News of overseas radio play is filtering through and both local and international music reviewers are taking notice. DIY film clips for Karma Karma and No Logo Is A Joke have also helped the band to pick up new interest online and on ABC TV’s rage.

Super Best Friends have got the hell out of Canberra as much as possible too, touring the HANDSHAKE EP through QLD, NSW, VIC and SA between March and May with regular return visits to Melbourne and Sydney the rest of the year. They’ve been invited interstate by excellent new acts like Sweet Teeth, Doc Holliday Takes The Shotgun and Gay Paris from Sydney and established acts like British India (Melbourne), Emperors (Perth) and Cairo Knife Fight (NZ). 2012 has also seen Super Best Friends support Frenzal Rhomb and Regular John in Canberra and a spot at Groovin The Moo, on the same bill as Kaiser Chiefs, Public Enemy and Waaves.

While bass player and drummer Matt Roberts and Adam Bridges keep the dream alive in the ‘Berra, the band’s operations have recently expanded to Melbourne with the relocation of guitar player Johnny Barrington. Despite the distance, the lads are now working on a debut album to be recorded next year and more time on the road.
