Cold Meat – Hot and Flustered’ (Helta Skelta Records)

Cold Meat – Hot and Flustered’ (Helta Skelta Records)

Nearly half a century on, punk rock has been made palatable in some ways, through its inevitable dilution with pop, but Perth’s Cold Meat are a band who don’t wish their punk rock to be palatable for you, just as their name doesn’t bring to mind a palatable image – based, as it were, on […]

Brainbeau – Infinite Ways

Brainbeau – Infinite Ways

Listen to the introduction of Marvin Gaye’s 1977 single ‘Got To Give It Up’. The loose chatter, the casual clinking glasses. It feels like a party. The sound effects continue throughout the song, acting like any other instrument to put across a feeling of happiness and joy, of something bright and something fun. The Beach […]

Queen + Adam Lambert @ Metricon Stadium, 29.02.2020

I promised myself I would never do this.  Never, ever. I just had no interest. Absolutely none. And it wasn’t just that, it was more.  There was always something unsavoury about the whole thing.  Why did I feel like this? Queen were the band of my youth, from start to finish, from 1980s Flash soundtrack […]

Hot Chip @ Forum Theatre, Melbourne, 07.03.2020

The thing that’s really impressive about Hot Chip is the depths to which they can plumb their own sound.
