Why Aussie Musos Are Taking Their Clothes Off for a Good Cause

Rolling Stone Australia has teamed up with Bonds to create a Father’s Day charity calendar featuring Australian musicians sporting Bonds’ Total Package™ underwear.

On-stage nudity mightn’t be as prevalent as it once was, but plenty of musicians are still willing to strip down for a good cause. Rolling Stone and Bonds have recruited a bunch of eager musos for a special Father’s Day calendar, which highlights Bonds’ new Total Package™ underwear.

Bonds’ Total Package™ undies are distinguished by their Total Support Pouch™, which separates and supports. This emphasis on support carries over to the calendar itself. A limited number of calendars will go on sale later this month, with proceeds going to the music industry charity, Support Act, which delivers crisis relief services to musicians, managers, crew and other industry workers.

A varied collection of musicians are featured in the calendar, including Abraham and John from Australia’s first African Australian-owned record label 66 Records, a duo renowned for pushing the country’s hip hop and trap scene into a modern and more authentic renaissance.  

66 Records appear in the calendar alongside members of the platinum-selling jazz and alt-rock musician Felix Riebl of the Cat Empire and reunited pop-punk trio Short Stack. Big Twisty, of NSW funk and hip hop collective Big Twisty & The Funknasty, makes an appearance, and so do the inner-city buskers turned globe-trotting folk singers The Pierce Brothers and Melbourne pub-punks Clowns.

Although the calendar is chesty and tongue in cheek, each of the featured musicians has taken this opportunity to identify one of their “greatest supports”—someone who has been beside them in their journey and career, helping to make the bad times good and vindicating their professional and creative decisions.

Once the calendar is on sale, Rolling Stone Australia will be speaking to the featured musicians to learn more about how the support provided by their loved ones has been essential to enhancing both their artistic prospects and their overall wellbeing.

In a similar manner of support, Bonds’ Total Package™ undies are designed to separate and support men’s boys  – this feat is achieved via the product’s patented Total Support Pouch™, which ensures neat downstairs organisation.

Total Package™ undies also include stay-put leg bands, preventing any riding-up behind the scenes, and anti-chafe panels—a necessity in times when stripping down is inopportune. 

Bonds Total Package™ undies will come bundled with the special Father’s Day calendar*, and are available now in-store and online.
