The Aints Play The Saints ’73-’78 @ The Tivoli, Brisbane Festival, 27.09.2017

The Aints Play The Saints ’73-’78 @ The Tivoli, Brisbane Festival, 27.09.2017

Ed Kuepper is no yesterday man. He was quick to distance himself from pre-emptive punk outfit The Saints following the group’s dissipation in 1978. Yet as the years have been marched by, this oft-bleak voice of Australian music has never hidden his affection for the iconic group’s formative iteration. With 40–years passing since The Saints […]

The Undertones @ Triffid, 07.07.2016

The Undertones @ Triffid, 07.07.2016

Playing your biggest hit/best known song more than once during a show is never a good thing. When The Undertones nonchalantly play ‘Teenage Kicks’ as their tenth song, it’s perfect. It’s a true punk rock moment. Guitarist Damian O’Neill dedicates it to someone in the crowd before being reprimanded by singer Paul McLoone for the […]

The Saints + The Tuts @ Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa, UK, 27.05.15

The Saints + The Tuts @ Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa, UK, 27.05.15

By Thom Ryan Leamington Spa is about as far away from the beach in England as you can get. It just re-elected a Tory MP and sustains itself on the memory of that time Queen Victoria stayed the night in 1838. Having lived most of my life in Brisbane, I didn’t expect to see The […]

10 Songs that should (but probably won’t) top triple j’s Hottest 100

10 Songs that should (but probably won’t) top triple j’s Hottest 100

The Guardian asked me to provide some suggestions as to what should be topping the Hottest 100 in Taylor Swift’s stead. Now, this was before my sudden – rather alarming – conversion to Taylor Swift’s new album 1989, otherwise I might just have voiced the opinion that many share: what the hell is wrong with Taylor […]

Everett True and his 40 favourite songs of 2014

This year stuttered in bits and firsts. Music is the healer. Here are the songs. The Aquadolls – Wander It’s knowing that passion can be full-tilt and consuming. It’s about Shadow Morton and Ellis Greenwich and 2014. It’s a love for the same love for that a ton of other folk show a love for but […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Collapse Board Interview: Ed Kuepper

The Collapse Board Interview: Ed Kuepper

In a way that I can’t quite explain, Ed Kuepper seems to epitomise everything best in Australian music and perhaps everything best in some bigger philosophy of music. The fact that he’s gone through so many musical stages over such a long time span isn’t necessarily the impressive part, but rather that none of his […]
