In other news, the tropical island of Singapura is starting to get so excited about what The SUNS are doing in Melbourne that Singapore's most imporant radio station Perfect Ten 98.7FM has started playing Cecelia from the Rock EP! Does this mean that Singapore might life the ban on The SUNS in the near future? Let us know what you think in the SUNS Forum. The SUNS producer, Rajiv "Rok Mekanik" Naidu & The SUNS crazy kat Robert Plant debut their first entries this week in the band diary! Be sure to read them bitch about The SUNS. As always, it would be really cool if ya could help us get onto TripleJ's regular rotation by voting for anyone of your favorite Suns anthem at Super Request or Net 50.
