“When I got to Australia, I met Eso (MacKinnon) and he was the only guy at my school into hip-hop. It was so scarce you’d be lucky to find a hip-hop record in a store let alone a whole section.” – Jonathan “Bliss” Notley[3]
“Back then hip hop was basically non-existent; there was no urban or hip-hop section in the CD stores. You’d be lucky to find a couple of albums like a Public Enemy album or something if you went to the CD stores. So I guess that’s one of the reasons why Max, who’s Eso, and I kinda bonded at high school, I think, because he was really the only other guy in the school who was into hip-hop.” – Jonathan “Bliss” Notley

2004 saw the breakthrough of another 2 MC + DJ combo, from Maroubra, Sydney. Bliss n Eso’s Flowers in the Pavement introduced their characteristic style of heartfelt sincerity with tracks like ‘Watchdog Water Dragons’ sitting neatly beside raucous party anthems such as ‘Pigs in the Porn Trough.’
