Summer Solstice Party & Name-Our-Rap-Group Competition!!!
To celebrate the summer solstice – that is, the longest day and shortest night (not that it makes any difference here as the sun never sets) – we all got dressed up in our best summer casuals and had a feast! The exotic Cape Denison Burgers whipped up by our Gordon Blue Conseurvatrix Mad Queen Mab went down a treat, as did cold beer and mulled wine (courtesy of Annie da Wash). In the photo you see our whole Rap group – from left to right: M.C. Cabe (Pete McCabe), Da Beat (Steve Beaton), Mad Queen Mab (Michelle Berry), Annie da Wash (Ann McConnell), D.J. B.J. (Brett Jarrett), Pemo (Yours Truly), Tone Def (Tony Stewart) and Bad Mothertucker (Jon Tucker). We are planning to release a new album for the Mawson’s Huts foundation – featuring our new hit rap single “Don’t Muck Wid Da Hut” featuring David Jensen on Turntables, audio production by M.C. Greg Holland, Rob Easther on synthesizers and the rest of us rapping.
But what do we call ourselves? The Hut Shop Boys? The Penguin Knobs? Hutallica?
So now we announce our Name-Our-Rap-Group Competition! We’ll be taking suggestions all this week until next Friday 28 December, 5pm and will announce the winner on Monday 31st December – the last day of 2007! The prize will be the honour of naming our group and getting a credit on the cover of our first album! You can make a suggestion by posting a comment on the blog and they’ll be forwarded to us.
