The return of Everett True | 70. Fear Kittens

Still occasionally it’s ace being me. When folk don’t forget me. When folk link me. A trusted source suggests I may love Seattle’s Fear Kittens. They’re right. I do. Fear Kittens by Fear Kittens I mean, how couldn’t I? They remind me of (deep breath)… The Groceries, Ed’s Redeeming Qualities, Lesbo Pig, Maria And The Gay […]

The return of Everett True | 69. The Saints

I know. You’re expecting ‘This Perfect Day’ or ‘Know Your Product’ or some similar incendiary blast from the 1970s. You’re wrong. This is by way of acknowledging that perhaps I’ve been wrong for quite a while now, too. In Brisbane, there are two types of music fans. The ones who side with Chris Bailey. The ones […]

The return of Everett True | 68. Das Band

I don’t know much about music but I know what I like. I rarely think about associations. Either it connects or it doesn’t. It’s entirely variable on mood. My preference is for messy, unless it isn’t. Some form of elastic, loose beat that always comes back together. Unless it doesn’t. And unless it isn’t. I […]

The return of Everett True | 67. Kim Deal

I haven’t posted one of these for 23 days. It feels longer. There’s no reason, just inertia. Depression. I saw this video posted on a friend’s Facebook feed. It’s Kim Deal. Of course I’m going to listen. It’s so good. Transparent. You can hear all the workings, the fluidity, the spontaneity, the beautiful melody at […]

The return of Everett True | 66. Technicolor Hearts

Hello, I’m writing because Everette True did a feature on my old band Agent Ribbons a few years back. I’m not sure how to get in touch with him but I wanted to see if he or anyone there would be interested in premiering or featuring a music video/diy video art piece for my new […]

The return of Everett True | 65. No Jaws

I keep telling folk bribery will work. I have no idea why people don’t listen. Failing that, try flattery. Make sure it’s sincere, though. Cue a message left on Twitter*. Mr. Thackray may tear us apart. But perception of a man who percepts so well is recognition enough. This new Song of the Day sounds […]

The return of Everett True | 64. Arre! Arre!

That’s how it works sometimes. I send a recommendation out there, my friends and readers pick up on it, and they send one back. Mutually beneficial. Sounds like an ad for a building society, doesn’t it? We go around in circles. We go around and round and round and round. No, that’s not me speaking. […]

The return of Everett True | 63. Bloods

It’s Kim Warnick. It’s Tobi Vail. It’s Corin Tucker. It’s Matrimony. It’s The Go-Go’s. It’s a taut coiled spring ready to pounce. It’s The Pleasure Seekers. It’s Blue Angel. It’s Patty Schemel. It’s repetition as a weapon. It’s The Donnas. It’s Bangs. It’s The Detroit Cobras. It’s autonomy. It’s Dolly Mixture. It’s Divinyls. It’s Dogtower. […]

The return of Everett True | 62. The UV Race

Let me quote The Jam at you. “Life is timeless, days are long when you’re young/You used to fall in love with anyone/Any guitar and any bass drum.” That’s how it works, right? You see a band, you fall in love for a minute, an hour, a week, a year… whatever it takes. It’s even […]

Song of the Day #694 – Quiet Marauder

Song of the Day #694 – Quiet Marauder

With one hundred and eleven songs on their quadruple album ‘Men’, Cardiff’s Quiet Marauder have more than enough songs to have run from one end of the music spectrum to the other and this record goes all over the map. Well maybe not dixieland or bebop jazz or throat singing, but they cover a lot […]
