Winnie Coopers - "Substance" (film clip) Like a Sunday roast, the Winnie Coopers' sophomore album has taken a while to bake, but ultimately has been Worth the Weight. With lashings of soul and dollops of reggae served on a bed of humorous yet socially conscious hip-hop, the Coopers' follow up to 2005's Being Different is a tasty treat. Guest chef Dizzy Dustin of Ugly Duckling shares his recipes on the first single, Eating Disorder, as the five funk connoisseurs from the Gold Coast get mouths watering and cabooses shaking. With what was originally a delicious dj/mc duo, the Educator's kitchen staff has expanded to a five-piece live team featuring Eloquence (vocals/guitar), Fingers Malone (drums), Young Tubs (Bass) and Bigbad (DJ/percussion) ready to take on the hungriest of customers. As well as delivering the flavour all over the east-coast of Australia with five-star feeds at the Big Day Out, Good Vibrations, BBQ Breaks and Parklife, the Winnie Coopers have broken bread with international clients such as De La Soul, Jurassic 5, The Beastie Boys, Lyrics Born and Ugly Duckling. Throughout the years, one satisfied regular has been Triple J, who added the track Success to high rotation, chose the group as a Next Crop Artist and Hip Hop Show Award Winner, plus recording the Coopers for Live at the Wireless and JTV. These cuddly cooks have also received top ratings as winners of the Musicoz Hip Hop Award, QMusic Songwriters Award and a RADF touring grant. Their instructional cooking videos for Geek Manifesto and Analgesic Remix have been staples on Rage and Channel V. So with an extensive national tour planned it's time to dig in, the Winnie Coopers are always guaranteed fresh. Bookings and enquiries:
