The Collapse Board Interview: The Goon Sax

The Collapse Board Interview: The Goon Sax

Ages ago I talked to Goon Sax about their excellent second album, We’re Not Talking.  It was all ready to publish but being the week of the album’s release there was a glut of interview so I decided to hold off until their official launch shows a few weeks later.  Then I was working interstate […]

BRIGHTON KOMEDIA: I have never felt very comfortable with my body. This feels like home. It shouldn’t. The venue is dismal; crap sound and a few punters shuffling around. My shoulder hurts, or is the ache in the pit of my elbow? I stand by the front of the stage, to the left – remembering some […]

Teenage Fanclub + The Goon Sax @ The Triffid, Brisbane, 08.03.2017

For all my years of Teenage Fanclub appreciation, I’d never seen them live. I’d mentioned to my partner as we were in the Uber on the way to The Triffid in Brisbane that the likely clientele would resemble myself – mid to late 30s, males, slightly overweight, probably nerdy and white (oh, so WHITE).
