Young and Restless

@ The Annandale Hotel, Sydney, 25 October 2008

Young and Restless were formed in 2005, and won the 2006 Triple J Unearthed competition to play at the Homebake Festival 2006[1]. The band formed in early 2005 when Karina and Ash (who were old high school buddies) combined with Ross, Mark and Nugie. Early names of the band were '...Wolves' and then 'The I Hate Yous' before settling on the current name. They started playing shows in Canberra before slowly playing interstate shows. They recorded initial demos in Canberra before recording their first single "Satan" with Chris Colonna from past Unearthed winners The Bumblebeez. The track was given to James Ford from Simian Mobile Disco to mix and master and the result was sent off to radio, blogs and industry people. Triple J quickly caught on to the single, giving it considerable airplay. Split-based between Canberra and Melbourne since 2007, they have played with the likes of The Mint Chicks, Erase Errata, Suicide Girls, Die! Die! Die![2] and Cansei de Ser Sexy. It was announced in August 2007 that founding member Ash Pegram would be leaving the band. In December 2007 the band were announced as winners of the inaugural 2007 Unearthed J Award.
