Does the Australian Music Industry Turn a Blind Eye to Dune Rats?

Does the Australian Music Industry Turn a Blind Eye to Dune Rats?

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 […]

Why’d Ya Do It, Why’d You Do What You Did? – On the return of Sticky Fingers

Why’d Ya Do It, Why’d You Do What You Did? – On the return of Sticky Fingers

Unaddressed allegations of racism, misogyny, violent abuse and bad behaviour. There’s a problem with Sticky Fingers. We know this, but let’s be real.
