The group out of Melbourne Australia, features Neil Mel and Darin Kes who performed together in a band back in 1992 that lasted until 1993. As they write on their website, http://www.beyondvegas.com.au
“20 years later, Neil stumbled upon a box full of old 4 track demos and decided he would remix and transfer them to digital format purely for his own amusement. They were very rough and unpolished, but as he had no plans to record or perform in public again, it seemed like a bit of fun.
Quite by chance, Darin was also becoming restless, and having not played or recorded for 2 decades, he decided to track Neil down, for a catchup as they had not met in 20 years.
Naturally, as one beer led to another, the idea of recording seemed like a good idea and they began to put the wheels in motion.”
They are set to release their debut EP next week. I have heard one track off the EP “Love Me Blind”, and I was impressed. If the rest of the EP sounds like the first song, it will be one I will be adding to my iPod.
