  • Demolition Crew release new single 'I Love Everybody'




    Diamond Dog Records announces the release of the new Demolition Crew single; ‘I Love Everybody’.



    You should remember Demolition Crew’s debut single 'The Real Deal' which was released in early 2014 was received very well by radio. It got some serious airtime across the country and charted in the top 100.


    The studio project has been around for a few years meeting every Friday at the DC base of operations, Briggs's North Melbourne studio ‘The Production Workshop’.  
    “We follow the three R’s every Friday at 7 am! ” Laughs Steve Strange (successful Melbourne DJ for the last 30 years) “Riting, recording and ranging”(sic).  

    The other two members of the Studio project are, hit maker David Briggs from Little River Band and Chris Doheny lead singer/songwriter of Geisha.


    “This is only our second single in over a year, so as you can see we take our time...” Chris Doheny says with a smile.
    “We take our time that's true, but as creators, writers and/or producers we always strive for the best, and that...my friend...takes time..” Ads David Briggs (Lead guitarist and songwriter for 70's/80's Oz hit-makers Little River Band) who is a multi-award, multi-million seller of hit music for the last 40 years.
    Chris also is no stranger to the hit making fraternity; his widely acclaimed AFL Footy Show theme 'More Than A Game'has remained the show’s opening and closing theme for more than 21 years. 
    Chris first came to the fore with popular Melbourne band Geisha, who enjoyed a string of hits in the mid to late eighties and on.

    I Love Everybody is available on iTunes and you can review/purchase it here. https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/i-love-everybody-single/id1002264646

  • Slow Release Syndrome have released a new single!
    (left Chris Doheny-right Shaun Gardener)


    Titled 'The Richest Man' the second single from Shaun and Chris explores new territory for SRS by writing a social commentary about the haves and have nots and what is truly important in ones life..

    After passing each other for many years on the local Melbourne music circuit Chris Doheny and Shaun Gardener have finally got around to doing some gigs and writing together.
    Both of them singer, guitarist, producer, songwriters there was no shortage of ideas and ability when they got in to the studio together…

    Doheny Recounts the birth of SRS. “Late last year I was stuck when my usual guitarist was ill so I called up Shaun to fill in on guitar for a show with my band Australian Made at a festival in Tom Price Western Australia. We spent about 6 hours in a small outback bar in WA drinking all their scotch and chatting while waiting for a flight on the way back to Melbourne and realised how much we had in common. The project name (Slow Release Syndrome) reflects how we intend to go about it, which is to write and release tunes at our own pace and as time permits!”

    Gardener explains. “I used to watch Chris Doheny perform with his band Geisha some years ago and be in awe of his musicianship and vocal prowess, so it's a great thrill for me to finally get to embark on this musical journey with him.
    I really hope you have as much fun listening to the songs as we had in the creative process…..stay tuned for more.”
    Chris Doheny – gained national attention when he emerged with the band Geisha, which scored a worldwide deal with EMI Music and scored eight Top 10 singles in Australia between 1985 and 1987. One of these, “Kabuki” reached Number One.  (Twenty years later Geisha were discovered in America, and Doheny toured there in 2007). He wrote songs for Daryl Braithwaite, James Blundell, Lee Kernaghan, Stevie Wright as well as US band Berlin’s singer Terri Nunn, Roxette and Andrew Ridgeley of Wham! fame. He is the voice of “More Than A Game”, theme song of Nine Network’s AFL The Footy Show, fronted glam-pop band All The Young Dudes, hard rock outfit Dragonfly and, helped coordinate the soundtrack for Australian movie The Castle, and has been releasing solo recordings and new Geisha tracks on his label Diamond Dog Records.
    Shaun Gardener - Best known as lead singer and guitarist for Melbourne based band 21-20 and as the front-man for Channel 7's house band on 'Live and Kicking' from 1999.

  • RSL green lights Chris Doheny’s fundraising song Gallipoli…


    Last April 25th2014 ANZAC Day, hit band Geisha singer songwriter Chris Doheny released his heartfelt recording Gallipoli, in acknowledgement of the many servicemen and women of Australia and New Zealand who bravely served their country in the many conflicts over the last one hundred years.

    Gallipoli struck an immediate chord with many people, including some seasoned radio journalists who said upon hearing the song; it brought a tear to their eyes!
    Chris’ own father Jack had served in the Royal Australian Navy aboard the HMAS Adelaide during WW11 (It is a war time photo of Jack that Chris used for the single cover) and his grandfather Joseph also served during the battle of Kokoda.
    On ANZAC Day 2014 Gallipoli was aired on radio across Australia (and the USA) throughout the day to a listening audience of over two million. 

    Says Chris “The reaction has been phenomenal! All the money earned from this song will be donated to the RSL, and I want to get that message out there to as many people as possible. I’m sure that if the public realise the money is going to our returned servicemen and women…they might be more inclined to shell out 99cents for a single!”

    Explains Chris
    “When the Returned &Services League became aware of what I was doing, they immediately wanted to get involved. Tanya Caddies label manager for my company Diamond Dog Records met with RSL Victoria to discuss how they could assist with promoting the song. They gave me their blessing to use the ANZAC Appeal logos and will be screening the video clip on rotation throughout the main RSL branches. Their marketing and communications manager Brad Swain also advised that Gallipoli will go out in all correspondence to members and will be visible in all RSL branches not just for Anzac Day but also for the whole of 2015!”

    Chris will perform Gallipoli live this ANZAC Day at Darebin RSL (2-4PM) and Waverley RSL (5-8PM)


    Chris’ full length album DOHENY is available on Diamond Dog Records and features the songs Gallipoli, More Than A Game, and many other songs with Australian themes.
