Bale and Retainer

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 other albums. 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. Get yourself a copy now.
