XRAY STUDIOS MUSIC

I like to play in a few bands. Here are some of them!!

THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION
The NPF is a demonic shit storm of old fashioned metal fuzzed up and delivered via Ouija board to it's unholy army of fans. FAIL SATAN!!


MUSK
Look closely and you may find trace elements of me in guitarist Mikey Musk from this densely moustached 70s rock juggernaut. Playing soon at an RSL near you!! MUSK FOR LIFE!

NANCY VANDAL

Once upon a time rockin' was my business, Nancy Vandal my job description and poorly attended pubs my cubicle. Despite going into receivership some time ago - there still are a few NV fans scattered about the place and we occasionally even reform just to remind everyone why we did no good the first time around. Check out the official NANCY VANDAL WEBSITE or NANCY VANDAL FACEBOOK ZONE.


MIKE FOXALL BIO

Greetings biography enthusiasts. I'm an illustrator / animator / musician from Bathurst, Australia with a keen interest in zombie affairs, heavy metal and movies about disproportionately large insects that have it in for humanity. Many years ago I used to rock like a hurricane in Sydney based sonic nose pickers Nancy Vandal. Occasionally I still do depending on prevailing wind conditions and the futures market. More recently I have taken to starting a swag of different bands with similar levels of success.

This site is the online repository for my various digital droppings - scooped up into a neat pile for you to poke through with a stick. Enjoy!


XRAY STUDIOS COMICS

THE GRAVE SHAKERS - Issue 1


The first issue of The Grave Shakers is out now!! The Grave Shakers is a 4 part comic book series telling the tale of a mad scientist turned rogue record label kingpin who uses cutting edge cloning technology to reanimate dead rock stars. A struggling all girl rock band and their bumbling manager are roped into the scheme and soon find themselves up to their eyeballs in undead menace. A rollicking rock and roll thriller ensues in the cinematic tradition of "Kiss Meet The Phantom of the Park" and "The Boys From Brazil"..

It's available to view online or as a free download at

SGT KOLE

Almost 3 decades since it's inception - my first ever comic finally hits the internets. Sgt Kole is a hard arse no nonsense WW2 fighting machine with the vocabulary and motivations of a 10 year old comic nerd.
And if you think you're hard enough, back it up it with more Kraut blasting action in BLOOD PASS!

THE GRAVE SHAKERS TRAILER


A short trailer for issue 1 of my comic book series The Grave Shakers. It tells the tale of a mad scientist turned rogue record label kingpin who uses cutting edge cloning technology to reanimate dead rock stars. A rollicking rock and roll thriller ensues in the cinematic tradition of "Kiss Meet The Phantom of the Park" and "The Boys From Brazil".


TIRED & CRANKY [SHUT THE FUCK UP] MUSIC VIDEO

A music video for U.S. stadium rock combo The Love Songs, featuring members of Your Mother whom my old band Nancy Vandal once embarked on an explosive Australian tour from Alexandria to Mildura [and nowhere in between].

BITCHBUS 74 FAUX GRINDHOUSE TRAILER
This is a Faux trailer for the SXSW film festival Grindhouse movie trailer competition. "Bitchbus 74" sees a group of highly dangerous female prisoners perform a daring escape then embark on a terrifying estrogen fuelled rampage. High octane action ensues in the cinematic tradition of Caged Heat and Cannonball Run 2.

PLANET FURY SHORT FILM
The Vardacs are the most warmongering species in the galaxy, yet each randomly instigated attack results in humiliating defeat. Planet Fury takes you for a rare journey to the Vardacs inner sanctum where they wrestle with the agonising choice of updating to sophisticated modern weaponry or sticking with their traditional, time honoured, yet utterly ineffective methods.

What follows is a riveting docu-drama in the tradition of Supersize Me and Battlefield Earth.

Dynamic teen sensations FOX TROTSKY AND THE EXPLOSIVES star in the animated music video for their chart topping debut single.

FUZZY'S DAY OUT SHORT FILM
