Rock The Bells

If you think back to the last time the infamous “Rock The Bells” festival released their line-up in America, you might remember my little day-dream about bringing the most prolific hip hop gathering to Australia?  or maybe not in which case you can see it here. Well a few tours, headaches, and victories later for The Very Good Agency this still remains on the to do list… so imagine my surprise when I came across some cool cats in Sydney, who seem to have made a few more decent steps towards getting a case together for exactly that. You can check out the facebook group that they have created here and join if your into it.

The 2009 Press conference was held last month releasing yet again another awesome group of artists. Check it out.

Che Fu receives Queens Birthday Honour

Che Fu receives Queens Birthday Honour

Congratulations goes out to Che Fu, or as he goes by his real name from time to time, Che Ness, who has had a laugh receiving a queens birthday honour addressed to Mr Fu. After replying with a simple request to please make it out to his real name, Che Kuo Eruera Ness, he now receives the prestigious award in honour of his services to music in New Zealand. So Che is able to add yet another accolade to  the pile following his APRA silver scroll for songwriting, and his multiple New Zealand music awards for his solo work in which he is often backed by his wicked live band The Krates.

Dam Native feat. Che Fu – The Son

Throughout his amazing career he has been given some incredible praise from some of the industries finest talents including (among many others) Crowded House, and Chali 2na who praised him for having the natural progression of hip hop right, being as a master of his home territory first. I’m not sure how many hip hop stars around the commonwealth have been shouted out to by the queen though, so good on you Mr Fu, I mean Mr Ness, or is it Mr Groove?

Whatever it is…
