The return of Everett True | 63. Bloods

The return of Everett True | 63. Bloods

It’s Kim Warnick. It’s Tobi Vail. It’s Corin Tucker. It’s Matrimony. It’s The Go-Go’s. It’s a taut coiled spring ready to pounce. It’s The Pleasure Seekers. It’s Blue Angel. It’s Patty Schemel. It’s repetition as a weapon. It’s The Donnas. It’s Bangs. It’s The Detroit Cobras. It’s autonomy. It’s Dolly Mixture. It’s Divinyls. It’s Dogtower. […]

The return of Everett True | 62. The UV Race

Let me quote The Jam at you. “Life is timeless, days are long when you’re young/You used to fall in love with anyone/Any guitar and any bass drum.” That’s how it works, right? You see a band, you fall in love for a minute, an hour, a week, a year… whatever it takes. It’s even […]

Superstar + Primitive Motion + Cannon @ Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane 20.10.14

Superstar + Primitive Motion + Cannon @ Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane 20.10.14

I see Cannon play. This is part of the Bedroom Suck five-year anniversary. What’s not to like? Buncha loud-mouthed disreputable local types playing a buncha loud-mouthed disreputable shouty punk songs. With a female drummer who kicks ass. Bangs alive, but I’d be driven to distraction if this was all I saw live… but I’d still […]

The Blurst of Times 2014 @ The Zoo + Brightside, Brisbane 18.10.14

The Blurst of Times 2014 @ The Zoo + Brightside, Brisbane 18.10.14

We accept you. We accept you. One of us. Weird how evenings turn out. I didn’t know there was a festival happening today, let alone a festival featuring much of the “independent” Australian music I like (Per Purpose, ScotDrakula, Babaganouj – all of whom I didn’t see because it’s a Saturday). This part is where […]

The return of Everett True | 61. The Bastards Of Fate

The return of Everett True | 61. The Bastards Of Fate

I have a Bastards Of Fate album here, clutched in my sweaty paws. Not literally. It’s called Vampires Are Real And Palpable. ‘Winter’ reminds me of Gogol Bordello fighting over who gets to keep the kitchen sink. ‘Further’ is like David Bowie if he still had some joy and imagination. With Antony And The Johnsons […]

Bedroom Suck doesn’t | five years on

Bedroom Suck doesn’t | five years on

Music that doesn’t suck. There’s a Bedroom Suck compilation out: BSR5. It’s there to celebrate five years since the label was started by two discontents living in the steamy undergrowth of Brisbane, 27 tracks featuring… well, I’m guessing it features some fucking great Australian music. (I ain’t heard it, you understand.) Not much of a guess […]

The return of Everett True | 60. CactusDemonDoom

They say: Post-punk garage rock infused with a little Moontrekkers madness. I say: I like it! Nice indeed. Though I suspect I might like it even more, infused with a little Moonrakers madness. They say: Alternative punk that is kinda weird with pop catchy melodies. I say: They’ve nailed that right, even inverted. Sometimes they go […]

The return of Everett True | 59. Vacation Club

The return of Everett True | 59. Vacation Club

The fuck you say. From the label that brought you Thee Open Sex. Vacation Club “Heaven Is Too High” by Vacation Club They say: Vacation Club’s debut full-length HEAVEN IS TOO HIGH fries you blind with a most pleasant and poisonous cocktail of psych-pop. The Indiana four-piece delivers infectiously poppy bubblegum chewed up and spit […]

The return of Everett True | 58. Marianne Faithfull

The return of Everett True | 58. Marianne Faithfull

I’m going to preface this entry with a comment someone left on something I wrote about The Drones a while back. Yeah, I like the Drones but their songs depict the world as a cold, uncaring, violent place and people associate that with authenticity. One review says Gareth Liddiard, “tells it like it is.” But […]

Duck Duck Chop + Secret Valley + Scrabbled + Wonderfuls + The Legend! + The Formaldehydes @ Beetle Bar, Brisbane, 13.10.14

Photography: Marek Rygielski These names mean nothing to you. That’s OK. You’re not even reading this. This is the underground so secret, not even the underground knows it exists. When I arrive home later than expected, Charlotte (never refer to someone as “my wife”) asks how my set went. I can’t recall. All I have are […]
