Mile End formed as high school friends, playing in a train carriage and making noise their other friends hated. As they progressed they played at house parties and the odd sticky, smelly night at the Hydey. Main songwriter Dean Anthonisz brought a certain sense of sorrow and longing to the bands sound while Nick Barnett's guitar, Cam Hines's bass and Jerome Turle's drumming pushed them into a area yet to be seen in Perth.
Mongrel Country, Bone, Snowman, Bobby Blackbird and The Bluejays, Kane Ikin.
Mile End released and launched Rumblefish in 2006 to a packed Bakery. The very next day they played at RTRFM's In The Pines.
They released their one and only album, Downers in 2012 via Soundcloud. The release was a free download and was never launched.
Mile End disbanded in 2009 as the members grew apart and Nick Barnett relocated to Melbourne. In 2012, they released via Soundcloud their one and only album Downers. A record that sat on Nick's computer for a number of years. They released it for free and with no launch, the band have no plans to re-form but are still good friends. Currently Nick Barnett is working on solo work. Cam Hines plays drums in Usurper of Modern Medicine, Jerome Turle plays drums in Weapon Is Sound and Dean Anthonisz lives in Melbourne working on a new project called Meth Leopard.
