Last Thursday was a bit of a sad day for the Brisbane music scene. Firstly Collapse Board favourites, The Goon Sax announced that rather than head out to tour with Interpol and then do some shows opening for Pavement, they were instead going to break up. They’ve said there’ll be some final Australian dates before […]
DZ Deathrays finish up their 10th anniversary tour with a sold out show at The Tivoli in Brisbane, with support from PUP and ‘Special Guests’ Violent Soho.
Nothing’s more obnoxious than the sight of young people enjoying themselves, unless it’s the sight of young people enjoying themselves in pretty much the exact same way you used to enjoy yourself when you were their age. Violent Soho are filed under ‘grunge’. Would I have liked ’em back then? Alcohol and largesse meant my taste […]
Driving the 15 minutes across Brisbane’s southern bible belt, from Salisbury where there are probably as many churches as shops, past Hillsong’s base in Mt Gravatt to Mansfield, Brisbane’s infamous religious heartland and the home of Violent Soho, it strikes that in over 10 years in Australia, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a […]
Violent Soho play the second date of their ‘No Sleep Til Mansfield’ national tour at a sold-out Mansfield Tavern, with support from Ceres and Black Deity.

Looking through my often forgotten Flickr account recently, they’re one of […]
Three of Brisbane’s best bands, three bands I’ve photographed and blogged about so many times it’s hard to know what else I can say (plus opening band The Seizures, who I’d never seen before but who had my ears ringing well before the end of their set and me reaching for my ear plugs, a […]
Violent Soho headline the Brisbane Festival Closing Party at The Riverstage, with support from Meg Mac and Methyl Ethel.
I won’t deny that the first time I saw Dune Rats, I thought they were the best new Brisbane band I’d seen in ages. Based on what I’d seen at this show in April 2011, when the band were one of the four supporting bands at Stature:Statues’s debut album launch show and also last ever […]
1. RIP Bek Moore Putting together this list of times Bek’s bands were written about, it looks like she has to have been one of the most written about Brisbane musicians in the five and a half years that Collapse Board has been running. (Justin Edwards) 2. Why The Australian Music Press needs to get […]
