SELLING US EVERYTHING

Canadian Matt Presston came to Taiwan to work with Consider the Meek on drums and ended up debuting his solo project Selling Us Everything, also known as SUE, on a Leek Records comp. He was later joined by Ryan, Jeff "Damage" of the infamous Deorted and Camilo from the Colombian punk rock outfit Johnnie Allstars. Their music is a healthy rebellion against the saccharine pop drone of Taiwan's corporate driven media. Unfortunately, the lack of cohesive unity among the Taiwan punk scene took its toll, frustration set in and some members called it quits leaving the band in a status of hiatus. However, Selling Us Everything did release one great record of social commentary on living in a media dominated culture aptly titled Product Jingles.

selling Us Everything became staples at Taipei live houses like the 808 Lounge, Driftwood and Chaos, and in 2006 they joined the "Summer of Tour" with fellow expat band Divebomb and local punks Stay Gold. Their farewell show was mentioned in the Taipei Times and the break-up has left the local scene lesser.
