Premiere: S M Jenkins - Martin's Big Fight

We're really excited to be able to premiere the brand new single from S M Jenkins as our first article on the Leisure Coast news blog. We'll be highlighting some of the best creative out put originating and based in our local area here.

S M Jenkins is the project of Step-Panther guitarist/vocalist Stephen Bourke and as he explains the brand new track (which also features on our upcoming Beached Friends Volume 3 compilation) has a strong connection to our part of the world.

"This song has a strong connection to the Illawarra region so I’m glad to be able to include it in the Beached Friends 3 collection, I remember coming up with the idea driving along Picton road towards Rad Bar where I was working a shift that night, I pictured a carpark somewhere, intensity, excitement and a dry suburban heat in air, an event that would profoundly effect all who witnessed it . Martin the underdog, the outsider, the only one who could stand up and make a change. My friend Alex of Bad Dreems came up with the lead guitar part and played it, we recorded it one morning at my house. I hope you will enjoy this track and may god bless the Illawarra Steelers."
