DOW at the Ramones museum.

We recently dropped by the Ramones museum here in Mitte, Berlin. They were kind enough to let us draw on their wall – right next to some far bigger Australian bands. Nice to feel important.

And check out this link – it’s an interview we recently did on MySpace Music Mix here in Germany:

AND FINALLY: Couldn’t help but noticing this little gem, in a vending machine nearby…

Cannabis in a can.

The Harmonica Man

Check out this guy. Found outside Nollendorfplatz U-Bahn Station in Berlin. He is incredible. A true prodigy.

Vimeo link here:

Or the YouTube embed:

Watch the whole way – look at him when he runs.

Let us know what you think!

The Temper Trap

with 2 comments

Saw The Temper Trap play last night at Postbahnhof, here in Berlin.

So great to see these fellas (and our fellow countrymen) doing so well, and it was certainly inspiring to see them play a sold out show here in Berlin. ‘Sweet Disposition’ was definitely a highlight.

And their tour van is pretty mackin’ also.

Took some snaps on my shitty little camera at the show, check them out:










And finally (so sorry to do this guys), some ridiculous cheesy snaps of the bands together. I am a little embarrassed to be posting these (clearly that embarrassment hasn’t prevented me, however).

10 hot guys hanging out.

Scott looks like he is possessed in this one. Like in a photograph of someone from the movie ‘The Ring’. He might explode at any moment.

More hot guys

And our German-language website:


For your music listening enjoyment.

And finally, have a look at our video clip for ‘Runaway’, which will be our next single here in Europe:

Lots and lots of love,

Free, downloadable, acoustic version of It’s A War.

with 2 comments

We have a free song to give you! It’s an acoustic version of It’s A War – we recorded it right here in our apartment in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Before we get to it, however, I’d like to bring to your attention some of the things we’ve been noticing during our time in Berlin, which are starting to make us feel that all is not as it seems.

First thing:

You've got to be joking #1

You’ve got to be joking, #1:

At a train station, I had to rush like I’ve never rushed before to get my camera out. This guy is having a laugh. No exaggeration (honestly), it was MINUS 10 on that platform. I was shivering with thermal underwear and a Mount Everest style jacket. And along comes a German pirate wearing nothing but a thin shirt, leather pants and SANDALS.

And second thing:

You've got to be joking #2


And finally, here’s the download – sadly, we can’t embed the song on this page, so you have to go to our Facebook or our MySpace, here are the links!!



Add us while you’re there!

And finally here is a pic of us recording the tune, in our ‘studio’…

Love from Dukes.
