The return of Everett True | 142. The Prodigy ft. Sleaford Mods

Some of us always heard The Prodigy behind them, in the rotten silences, in the beer-twatted halls. Everyone needs a fucking standard-bearer sometimes, covered in piss and sweat and baccy stains. It’s an answer to the strangled liberalism that binds so many in useless knots of discontentment. Prodigy are punks, from what I understand by […]

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 | 116. Charli XCX

The return of Everett True | 116. Charli XCX

Pouting white bread pop star Charli XCX has made less than an impression on me so far, but if you think I can resist this – a Josie And The Pussycats-style punk cover of one of 2014’s finest pop songs – then you are crazy. There’s such energy, such an infectious delight. The handclaps! The spontaniety! The […]

Is it OK to write negative reviews of other people’s music?

Is it OK to write negative reviews of other people’s music?

So, we opened up the “secret” Collapse Board Contributors Facebook group to a few hundred readers the other day. Cue much confusion and hilarity and the odd piece of incredible music being shared. After the usual butt-clenching and soul-wringing and back-slapping, a few folk posited that they could indeed write some stuff for Collapse Board […]

The return of Everett True | 73. Sleater-Kinney

So how does Everett True feel about the news Sleater-Kinney has reformed, you may be asking yourself. 1. Everett True does not like the idea of bands – especially bands rooted in righteous fire and energy – getting back together, per se. Often, Everett True feels, the motivating factor is lack of inspiration, drive or money. […]

Back when Brisbane still had a culture of protest | Prehistoric

By Tiarney Miekus  Thirteen hot nights in a row The cops drive past and they move slow A million people staying low With mangoes ripe, who needs to grow? I don’t want it let down My own hopes for this town It’s so hard to get around Lots of cars but not much sound In town […]

R.I.P. Tommy Ramone 1952-2014

R.I.P. Tommy Ramone 1952-2014

R.I.P. Tommy Erdélyi, the last remaining member of the original Ramones line-up.  He passed away last Friday (11/07/14), aged 62. He had been suffering from bile duct cancer. The drummer and producer (he also played a mean guitar) was very decent to me when I was writing my Ramones biography Hey Ho Let’s Go: talking extensively to […]

An evening with The Legend!

An evening with The Legend!

You missed out. Sorry, but that’s the bare truth of the matter. Here, have some reports. (Part one: the realisation.) “MOTHER! YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO DANIEL JOHNSTON! DON’T YOU KNOW THE KIDS CARE WHAT YOU WEAR?” (Neil Noon) Here, have some music. I heard this from the street before walking into Horse & Groom. […]

The return of Everett True | 18. Cruising

Everything is awesome. Everything is cool. I don’t know. Maybe it’s the jetlag kicking in full-time. Maybe I’ve missed the jetlag and the enforced sleep deprivation (so fucking different to the insistent sleep deprivation you get for years without end as a parent). Maybe I’ve missed the hangovers, and the knowledge that nothing will feel […]

The return of Everett True | 9. Beverley Kills

The return of Everett True | 9. Beverley Kills

So yesterday’s choice was unpopular, then; or more accurately, widely ignored. No matter. I have but to flex my arms and surely a whole array of feathers will come cascading down. Sooner or later. Perhaps people prefer it when I remain silent. No matter. This is a cover of a song I don’t particularly like, […]
