The Latonas played like acoustic racehorses

Listen back to the program here!

Fiona Lee Maynard returned to The Dotted Line this week, braving the flu, to chat about being  illegally tackled from behind in the Community Cup by a Megahertz player, pushing her to the ground!

But Fiona, like everyone who participates in the Cup knows that it aint really about footy, it’s about comradery and fun.  This spirit was extended to her young daughter, the feisty Juanita, who was given the nod from Rockdogs coach, Paul Kelly, to join in training sessions!

Fiona was also excited to tell us about the UnAustralians, a band involving her partner, guitarist James Lomas, who are about to release some new music. Catch them live on the 20th July at Pony in the city.

The Latonas

Pat, Ben and Dave from Melbourne four-piece, The Latonas played a white-hot acoustic set live to air. The power pop-rock outfit met and formed in school about four years ago and haven’t looked back.

They have been playing regular gigs around Melbourne and have scored great support slots with the likes of Dave Larkin and British India. Ben told us about playing a gig in WA on Australia Day with Angry Anderson on the bill, who took his potato wedges from him!

Their songs were modified for an acoustic set. They sounded scintilating! Pat, who usually plays bass, brought in his dad’s antique Maton guitar. Dave told us that when the band got together, he originally played the saxophone.

The Latonas, named after a street sign, have two Eps out. They performed the songs Nightlife and You Know What I Mean,  off their up-coming double A-side single, which will be launched at Revolver on the 25th August.
