101 Albums You Should Die Before You Hear, Vol. 1 – A Biased Review

101 Albums You Should Die Before You Hear, Vol. 1 – A Biased Review

So. You remember that rejected 33 1/3 chapter that Everett True posted on here back in September? Well, shorty after that, he posted on the Facebooks that he had a new idea for a book, and he needed writers FAST! Within a day, those who replied were shepherded into a new group called Rejected Unknown […]

The greatest band in the world in November, 2015

The greatest band in the world in November, 2015

Cold, covered in sweat. I am on stage performing as The Legend! (not Everett True) and people are laughing.  I am a funny man, that’s what (some) people say.  People laughed at Nina Simone too.  (Read that sentence again, and wince.)  Nervousness, coupled with just not knowing how to react.  I know I intimidate, that […]

The importance of being Helen

The importance of being Helen

I have two mice.  One for good thoughts, one for evil. Forgive while I wallow for a little in one of those years I have no memory of: 1983, say.  Somewhere, I lost track.  Somewhere I lost sight of the… I’m thinking of what your fingers would look like holding this mouse, the stretch and […]

R.I.P. Carey Lander

R.I.P. Carey Lander

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Carey Lander, the keyboard-player with one of my favourite bands Camera Obscura. She had been battling osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer, since 2011. She was 33. The band left this message on their Facebook page. It is with the greatest sadness, that we must share […]

Life is fucking is dancing is Shopping is rhythm

Life is fucking is dancing is Shopping is rhythm

Everything is wrong.  You want to know how wrong?  I have seen plenty of Greatest Guitarists of All Time lists, vacantly staring as I have, and not one of them has listed Rachel Aggs in its Top 10.  Now, we can agree, I know very little about music, certainly not as much as those venerated […]

I watched 40 seconds of the greatest band (a tragedy in 40 seconds)

I watched 40 seconds of the greatest band (a tragedy in 40 seconds)

I watched 40 seconds of the greatest band.  I pretended I had watched 40 minutes when I spoke to them later because hell it’s embarrassing to have watched 40 seconds of the greatest band just as the “thank you’s” kick in and then enthuse to the band how wonderful you think they are and can […]

How Not To Write A Book Proposal (Rejected Unknown)

How Not To Write A Book Proposal (Rejected Unknown)

Sometimes, when your proposals for articles or books are rejected you feel down for weeks afterwards – like, fuck it, I really was the best person for that job, why the FUCK is everyone still so resentful of me and bugger it, I ain’t going to be buying anything this week either. Other times, however, […]

I really wanted to see The June Brides play last night

I really wanted to see The June Brides play last night

I really wanted to see The June Brides play last night. I had heard some new songs from them, thin and reedy and wistful and wastrel.  Tender and melancholy and so fragile, almost not existing.  Last night I dreamed I was living in a futuristic nightmare-scape where everyone’s virtual avatars were real and friendly, conjured […]

After the Dole Rush: Beef Jerk and Modern Australia

After the Dole Rush: Beef Jerk and Modern Australia

By Mitchell Judge Early last year a handful of Australia’s greatest music critics published individual thinkpieces on the most recent dominant genre of local independent music: dolewave. Beginning with Sean Prescott’s review of the School of Radiant Living album on Crawlspace, this collection marked the first time that dolewave had been legitimised as a movement. […]
