The return of Everett True | 125. Hinds

The return of Everett True | 125. Hinds

I have no idea if they’ll remain this good the whole time the four ladies, the two ladies, are together. It seems near unbelievable they could be. But there again, there’s Kim Deal. If you don’t get this video on any level, if you do not understand this music just one nano-second of a nano-second, if you do […]

The return of Everett True | 124. The Furrs

The return of Everett True | 124. The Furrs

I enjoy having no frame of reference. Well, little. This is from a tradition of music that I have little familiarity with. Having lived here in Brisbane for close on seven years now, I am of course aware of certain musical irregularities in this country’s past. Sharpies. The boogie scene that spawned AC/DC and the […]

What I did tonight instead of seeing Foo Fighters play live

What I did tonight instead of seeing Foo Fighters play live

First, I do not believe a bad live review affects a band’s sales or reputation. Certainly not a band the size of Foo Fighters, able to play Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium (capacity 52, 500). If anything, a bad review helps shore up the fans – they can unite in their condemnation of the idiot fuckhead’s opinion, possibly […]

In Search of Nirvana: Why Nirvana: The True Story Could Never Be ‘True’

In Search of Nirvana: Why Nirvana: The True Story Could Never Be ‘True’

In my book Nirvana: The True Story (2006), I undertake an autoethnographical approach to biography, attempting to impart an understanding of my chosen subject—the rock band Nirvana—via discussion of my own experiences. On numerous occasions, I veer off into tangential asides, frequently using extensive footnotes to explain obscure musical references. Personal anecdotes are juxtaposed with […]

What I did last night instead of going to see The Necks play live

What I did last night instead of going to see The Necks play live

I thought about how good The Necks sound on record, and how refined I would have felt watching their refined, exploratory jazz at the Old Museum where bats fly out from under the rafters. (I tried to find a review to link to so you could engage viscerally with their music without the tiresome bother of […]

A brief history of Collapse Board

A brief history of Collapse Board

2010: Justin Edwards and Everett True found the site. It is intended as a radical alternative to the established Aus music press, with a focus on Brisbane. Meetings are held, where everyone stares blankly at everyone else. Drowned In Sound runs a series of articles asking “is music journalism dead?” 2011: Everett True brings in an array […]

What I did tonight instead of going to see The Veronicas play live

What I did tonight instead of going to see The Veronicas play live

I thanked whatever Lady you would like me to thank that I’m still blessed with some taste. I missed Hinds (I didn’t miss Hinds – I saw Hinds). But I missed Hinds. I stared blankly into blank inner space. I cheered myself for reaching a rating of 1500 on chess.com. I deleted someone from my […]

Yesterday and today: favourite songs of the Interweb (volume three)

Yesterday and today: favourite songs of the Interweb (volume three)

School was out. Now it’s back in again. The idea behind much of Collapse Board is to find new ways of presenting you with music you may not have heard before. Click on the high grades! These are the folk who’ve gone the extra mile. Click on the low! All taste is equal yet different. Grades […]

The return of Everett True | 123. Syster Darkwyne

The return of Everett True | 123. Syster Darkwyne

“Guys, come on … It’s not the 60s any more!” It’s not too much of a stretch to call Syster Darkwyne the Sex Pistols of Goth except of course The Sex Pistols went on to overshadow their particular genre whereas Sister Darkwyne failed to overshadow anyone except their own portentous and all too briefly lit egos. With a bitter […]

The return of Everett True | 122. Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks

The return of Everett True | 122. Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks

It was always going to take something pretty special for me to feature Stephen Malkmus in this series. This is it. See how good he still sounds when he actually has a decent song to sing?
