Bale and Retainer aka Hedge Burners present their debut album Over Spray.
This is the first time the two Melbourne veterans have worked together
but they have both been around the traps for a while.
Retainer released Valley Of Black Daisies in 2008 and has been skating
and painting around Melbourne
for over 10 years.
This is the first release for Bale apart from a few feature tracks on
Bale has been kicking around for over 12 years as a painter and used
to be a regular on the battle circuit
winning the Big Day Out Battle, Run Amok and making the semi’s in
Revolver, Double Beef and a range of other battles.
He also used to have a show on Syn Fm (till they kicked him off air).
The album touches on a wide variety on subject matter from graffiti
and war through to BP, greed and whaling.
It is a combination of raw underground hip hop and nerd hop, hopefully
something for everyone on the cd.
The album was printed last week and already songs have been played on
Top Billing on RRR and The Aum Show on Kiss FM.
