Fumbling, unsure but with a real swaggering gait. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I don’t buy that whole kind of “Brisbane is shitty” thing. At the level of underground activity, I’m really positive about this place.
My humble little film about Australian music, Eternal Soundcheck: The First Year can now be watched in full on YouTube.
It’s so easy to offend weiners on the internet. I could talk about Frankly Festival and point out the fact that most Brisbane gig goers are as clicky as fuck and cliched cunts – but I feel that controversy has been well represented throughout music blogs as of late. So this is my virtual mix […]
Just returned home from a rare evening out in the city, from the screening of Matt’s footage celebrating one year of Eternal Soundcheck. I intend to write a fuller report later, so I’ll hold back from describing it except to say zowee! – Matt sure has a finely tuned aesthetic! – but I just had […]

Bangs alive, but I love Facebook sometimes. Throws up unexpected, glorious music from around the world. Speaking of which… you have checked out this blog already, right? This brings us to Black Candy – an Italian friend sent me the link a while ago, and I just checked it out. In their own words, they […]
As I said somewhere else just now, I keep forgetting how much I remain in love with the thrill of live music. Blame it on my age. Whatever. At least I know my limitations. Oh maybe I shouldn’t. Or maybe I don’t. Oh maybe I just want to FUCK AND GET HIGH FUCK AND GET […]
