Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

By Milton Fiennes Foo Fighters Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Foo Fighters bum rush the stage to tumultuous applause from an awfully dressed, overweight crowd. They break into the first of many forgettable songs that only have 3 chords the entire time. There’s a 60-year-old guitarist nobody addresses. He looks like he’s won a competition to fuck […]

In Words: The Courtneys + Hinds + The Furrs @ Black Bear Lodge, 20.02.2015

By Ben Green When it rains it pours. It’s one of those nights where Brisbane’s already marginal music vote is split, a full card of candidates rolling into town and setting up their soapboxes on opposite street corners. The elder axeman, the emo-glam queen, the scrappy next-big-things. Not to mention the cyclone bearing down. “You’ll […]

Xylouris White – Goats, and live in January 2015 at Howler, Brunswick

Xylouris White – Goats, and live in January 2015 at Howler, Brunswick

 Words: Boris van de Legende Melbourne’s had a long-term love affair with the Dirty Three, and a long history of Greek migration – the largest Greek population outside of Athens they used to say, or some such rubbish. Anyway, there’s lots of Greeks – I’m married to one, for example; I live in Melbourne, so the […]

Babaganouj + Some Jerks @ Trainspotters, Brisbane 25.01.15

I’m gonna have to bluff this one. SOME JERKS Happy. This music makes me happy. Reassured – that there are still bands are out there, who still believe. Reaffirmed – that it ain’t all for nought. Re-energised – cos there ain’t nothing like going into a dead city Saturday night and finding yourself in a […]

The Coathangers @ The Tote, Melbourne 16.01.15

The Coathangers @ The Tote, Melbourne 16.01.15

By Alexandra Duguid I love bold women. I love brazen women. I love loud women. Unforgiving, passionate and with a touch of ego. I love watching these women on stage, because it is everything I have ever wanted to be. Which is why seeing The Coathangers, an all-gal punk three-piece from Atlanta, Georgia, left such […]

Cloud Nothings @ Electric Ballroom, London, 01.12.2014

London is a much changed city from the one I left in 2004 for a one year stay in Australia that, out of nowhere, has turned into a full decade. So many of the venues and pubs have gone – from the Intrepid Fox to Bull & Gate to the never-ending Tottenham Court Road redevelopment […]

In Words: Violent Soho @ Mansfield Tavern, 07.11.2014

Driving the 15 minutes across Brisbane’s southern bible belt, from Salisbury where there are probably as many churches as shops, past Hillsong’s base in Mt Gravatt to Mansfield, Brisbane’s infamous religious heartland and the home of Violent Soho, it strikes that in over 10 years in Australia, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a […]

In Words: Bedroom Suck Records 5th Birthday Party @ Black Bear Lodge, 19.10.2014

Time may be getting faster every year but it’s crazy to look at how much Bedroom Sucks Records have achieved in the last five years, their first five years. As the man said, they’ve put out some of the best music in Australia in that time and keep going from strength to strength. By comparison, […]

In Words: Cibo Matto + Richard In Your Mind + Ben Ely @ The Zoo, 29.10.2014

Most musicians are mired in their muck.  And we love that.  But some people – I guess I call them artists – seem to float above it all, with the lightest touch. Ben Ely is a musician and it comes naturally, like breathing.  This is his first show with a new drummer and he’s glad to be […]
