Cold Fish are from Brisbane. Their new 4-track is a sludger, searing riffs and a whole lot of venom. A kind of dirty blues, albeit dragged through an underground silt then rubbed a little clean. The man who sings is not a happy one but if you’re feeling the magnetism then neither probably are you. […]
When Harriette Pilbeam released her first single something happened. Nestled in out-of-the-way Brisbane, ‘Try’ caught ears. More than a few were in far-off places.

In March the band had returned from a long hiatus. They claimed to have been coming to terms with drug addiction […]

Zola Jesus and Miss Blanks play an Up Late show at Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art.
We haven’t done one of these for ages so how about the new New War one? How about the new New War one indeed. “Get In The Boot’ is a first taste of the band’s long-awaited, upcoming second album, COIN. It’s pretty ace. Having checked, we did give them a SOTD one time before (SOTD […]
Lydia Lunch Retrovirus play an Up Late show at Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane.
