Sam manages The Broken Needles, an independent band from North Queensland who recently released their debut album Terra Nullius. Borne out of the tropical wasteland of the region, Terra Nullius is a muscle car ride from the desolate, empty landscape of the band’s hometown to the southern capital cities of Australia, filtered through lead-singer Mick Galloway’s decadent and depraved mind. A refreshing antidote to the polite and American-ised indie rock that has dominated Australia’s music scene for the better part of a decade, the band are amassing a steady following in the Australian underground despite their drastic geographical isolation.

Sam’s day job is at EMI in Consumer Marketing. There he does graphic design for artists including Sigur Ros, Grinderman, Hot Chip, Gorillaz, Anna Calvi, and many more. Sam looks forward to you hearing The Broken Needles album Terra Nullius in full (preferably through a set of decent speakers). You can stream it for free at thebrokenneedles.bandcamp.com!
