Melbourne, Australia is a hotbed of amazing indie-dance talent at the moment … but digging a little deeper than the usual Cut Copy and Midnight Juggernauts is another bunch of lads who have all number of projects and cross-projects going on – it’s all a bit confusing really – and I wouldn’t be surprised if they all went to school with the aforementioned.  

The Ca$inos consist of Gus Franklin (from Architecture in Helsinki), Ben Browning (from Damn Arms), Ben Donnan (aka “Donza”) and Shags Chamberlain (aka “Shags”). These guys have been around in some shape or form since 2000 – although Jet poached their original bass player Mark Wilson after seeing them perform at the Duke of Windsor.   Ben Browning (aka “BB”) has a very cool side project called …. Ben Browning …  No idea what’s happening with Damn Arms these days as it’s other half -Yama Indra – is currently out and about / touring under the alias “G.L.O.V.E.S“.  No complaints here as I’d love to see BB take this project further …
