Hear that sound? Raw, loose and nasty funk recorded straight to
analogue tape. It's just like the old days, but so new it's sporting a
badass teenage moustache. The Cactus Channel are a ten piece funk
orchestra straight out of Princes Hill High School in inner city
Melbourne. With an age of eighteen, these kids are burning down original funk breaks and breaking down funk originals with a musical maturity way beyond their years. Featuring an update on the Porgy
Jones classic "The Dap," and their own "Pepper Snake," the Cactus
Channel's debut single will be available for digital download and on
7" vinyl on HopeStreet recordings in 2011.

"The Cactus Channel hit you with a hard funk groove to rival the likes of James Brown or The Meters and you find you just can't stop moving. But what's that? They're still high school?! With a musical maturity beyond their years you know that this 10 piece collective will go far. And that they'll get a whole lotta rumps shaking along the way" DJ Manchild (PBS 106.7 'The Breakdown')

"The Cactus Channel are a fantastic young teenage funk band. They have managed to capture the fun and looseness of what funk truly means. They are right up there with the great Melbourne funk scene. They have a great future ahead of them. Playing with jazz sensiblities and a funky feeling these kids truly belong on the BIG stage!!!" DJ Chris Gil (Northside Records)

"The Cactus Channel are playing this music in an original way... They are a youthful group that instantly arrived with
a deeper and earthier musical aesthetic than many of their contemporaries" Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos/Lanu/Tru Thoughts)
