From the band! posted 02/04/04
Hey all! We’ve had many questions as to when we will announce the Summer Rock Musical EP launch shows. As many of you know, the EP was released on the first day of summer last year. Since its release, there has been an advertising campaign to give people in Brisbane a chance to see our name and purchase the EP from the stores. You may have noticed banner ads on noisetheory.net, timeoff.com.au, also ads, interviews, and cd reviews in local street press Rave and Time Off mags, (including this week), and also a couple of radio spots including river 949. If anyone has missed any of these we will try and get them all up on the site. We've have had a massive increase in visitors to the site (including you) which is great, and heaps more mailing list subscribers, and as a bonus are starting to sell some copies of the EP through Skinnys Music in Brisbane. Expect to see a run of smaller shows soon (check the Event Guide), and larger shows from May including an official launch and some shows outside of Brisbane. Also expect another rare demo release of two new songs in the coming month, and a brand new EP around August/September. In the meanwhile, check us out on Saturday 3rd April at Bewildered Festival (see gig guide) Thanx and may you rock forever.

band with fans Amphibious kicked out of venue! posted 28/12/02

Amphibious were evicted from a local venue at a recent show when confusion arose over the legal drinking age of the band members. Despite all members being above drinking age, onstage comments from singer/guitarist Dan lead management to believe they were actually under 18 years of age and therefore were not allowed in the Hotel, let alone drinking. Dan acknowedgles that his onstage comments of "None of us are 18 yet" and "We had better finish our beers before anyone notices" were in fun. Nevertheless, all was sorted out, and the band is looking forward to a friendly return.

amphibious Past Gig Keeps the Phib on their Toes! posted 24/07/02
The band’s show last Friday at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel had a few interesting incidents. Firstly, this venue has never been so packed (a good sign), and with Nates’s drum kit having problems early in the second song, quick thinking was required. While Nate was fixing his drumkit, Daniel burst into a solo rendition of ‘More than Words’ by the 1980’s rock band Extreme. Surprisingly, it won the crowd over with many singing along, and more than compensated for the small delay. Just another example of the spontaneous events that can happen at an amphibious gig!

01/November/00

The action never lets up. In the space of 4 hours, the band spontaneously drove to an audio/visual recording studio and filmed a music video for 'Who killed tha DJ'. The rather corny clip suited the dance rock song, and is set to be shown on Ground Zero in coming weeks.
Afterwards, Amphibious made an appearance at Shooter's nightclub, where they ran into rugby league hero Laurie Daley.
However, all did not go to plan on the drive home at night. Garth noticed the temperature gauge in Nate's car on HOT with 65km to drive. They had to pull over and call for assistance despite the efforts of a friendly passer-by. While waiting for the RACQ, a car pulled up and a woman jumped out saying she would do anything if they would drive her to Brisbane Airport. Nate told her the car was stuffed but thanked her for the offer anyway. In return, she verbally abused them for wasting her time and left.
What followed that night was
- a long wait for the RACQ and tow truck
- waiting in the rain for a lift home from parents.
- Garth going nuts and telling urban legends
- Daniel getting paranoid about homicidal maniacs driving past

By 3am, they were home safe and sound.

23/0ctober/00
