The Alcohotlicks released their first studio album entitled 'You,You' (Jazzgroove Records) in Oct 08'. In late 07' The Alcohotlicks were commissioned by ABC classic FM to record a feature for Jazztrack with Mal Stanley. Performance highlights include: the Jazz:Now festival - Sydney Opera House 04, Stonington Jazz festival - Melbourne 05, and they featured at the 07' Wangarratta Festival of Jazz: 'Sydney's Alcohotlicks also made the most of its unusual line-up, which teamed two electric guitars (Ben Hauptmann and Aaron Flower) with Evan Mannell's ferocious drumming. Not much room for subtlety here. Mostly, they disguised their tightly focused rapport with lashings of grunge-rock grit.' source:(http://www.wangaratta-jazz.org.au/docs/programme.php?reviews)
