ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Early 2003, in a dim lit, smoky bar in Brunswick, four suspicious muso’s huddled in a vinyl clad booth to talk about metamorphic processes, Scottish malt and the Northwoods conspiracy. Suffice to say, like a politician in tracky dacks, the conversation awkwardly shuffled on to the topic of pop music and band riders that wouldn't save a dehydrated desert lizard. By golly, something had to be done ... and not a moment to soon!

Motivated by the love of simplistic and immediate ‘rawk'n'roll’ and a healthy disrespect of reality TV mock stars, the four skipped work, crammed into a Richmond rehearsal studio and wrote furiously. By the time the hallowed lights of the MCG filtered through the cracked plaster sound-proofing, they had a swag of tunes, of which 2 ended up on the Lost Weekend and Planet of Popboomerang compilations.

"We received a barrage of requests after Living on The Moon and Everything Has Gone landed on those comps. We thought it best to heed the call, do some shows and release an album of more of the same" muses vocalist John Baxter. So together with co-conspirator Paul Inglis on bass, who’d done time with John in Alcotomic, guitarist extraordinaire Michael Snowball (Groundswell) and the powerhouse skin thumper Geoff Barnes (P76), Magneto was born only to be mercilessly thrown out of their comfort zone into the rough and tumble world of pop like a drunk on payday at closing time.

Not afraid of wearing their influences on their sleeves, acts such as The Stems, Jellyfish, Wall of Voodoo, Gaye Bykers, Cheap Trick and Johnny Cash, has been integral to Magneto's warm fuzzy blend of shimmering Jazzmaster driven pop. "We keep most of our songs under 2 minutes, 37 seconds and adhere to a philosophy of, if it takes longer 20 minutes to write ... it's not right", smirks Paul. "We’re catering to folk with short attention spans who’ll be able to digest our album in under half an hour."

18 months have passed since that formative evening on Sydney Road. The much-anticipated release of their debut album "Resistance Is Futile", mixed by Shane O'Mara and Craig Lewis, 'Resistance Is Futile' features 11 cracking pop gems & will be officially released February 2006.
