Bully Dux n Phat Kat

Phat Kat has been presenting on Eastside Radio since October 2009. Sharing ancient ideologies and ethos with her fellow merchants, her collection includes blues, old school rock’n’roll, freakbeat, world and soul/funk. She is an avid supporter of community radio with subscriber status held at fellow stations 2SER, FBi and marketing/sponsorship is her specialty at Eastside. Using the senses and her guiding muses, she keenly twirls her way through flamenco dance, Italian language and Greek cuisine.

Bully Dux  is a local deejay. He welcomes playing random weddings, Bar Mitzfahs, Sunday breakfast slots at the local cafe and sweaty warehouses parties. He cringes at corporate gigs but plays them anyway. Being dearly attached to his 2 wheelers, Bully Dux is keen to pull out his traveling paintbrushes and paint more colour on empty objects. He’s hosted and played on 2SER – Mophonics show and random blues and roots slot on Bondi FM.

HERE is a link to their blog: a collection of quotes, videos, artwork and audio files that inspire them … Merchants of Sound @ tumblr
