Clever – Hangin Egg (Tropical Cancer Rort)

Clever – Hangin Egg (Tropical Cancer Rort)

This record bursts into existence, there’s simply no other way to describe it. The band plays with intensity. Like punk. But as with any kind of idealism you could throw around the P-word in this day and age the group sounds ragged, weathered and torn. ‘No Cold Solo in Red Hill’ tells you this before […]

The Collapse Board Interview – The Beasts

The Beasts of Bourbon played their final show in April 2018, a fundraiser for long-term bassist Brian Hooper. Although Hooper was able to perform with the band at the show, sadly he died six days later. Spurred on by the band’s singer, Tex Perkins, the remaining Beasts of Bourbon alumni gathered together in Melbourne’s Soundpark […]

Phil Collins @ Suncorp Stadium, 19.01.2019

I know. I know, I know, I know. There’s us, Collapse Board, with all our principles and our manifestos, and there’s me, spending a warm summer Saturday night at a Phil Collins show. Curiosity gets me here, what else would it be? The best piece of work advice I was ever given was from an […]

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 […]

Does Shannon Noll Hate Women?

“Shame the prick! Shame that motherfucker right there!” Shannon Noll bursts into a tirade at his Duck Creek concert. He’s angry. With good cause. One of the crowd, a heckler, has hurled something at him onstage. “Whoever that was come up here!” The crowd quickly identifies the assailant. A “fuckhead in a tie.” Shannon continues […]

You Do It To Yourself And That’s What Really Hurts: Goodbye Sticky Fingers

You Do It To Yourself And That’s What Really Hurts: Goodbye Sticky Fingers

“This band cannot accept even the slightest possibility of fault.”

Well, that’s it. Sticky Fingers have withdrawn from what feels like the last Australian festival that will have them. But for a second there – following our last article – things were looking up. In March the band had returned from a long hiatus. They claimed to have been coming to terms with drug addiction […]

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. There are others too minded in profit or self-assured ignorance. These complaints will never speak to them. So with that comes the hoary old question. What do we actually do about it? […]
