Collapse Board’s Belated Worst of 2016

Collapse Board’s Belated Worst of 2016

In the run-up to the end of 2016, there we all were in the Collapse Board contributor’s forum discussing the worst music of the year.  Consensus was being reached reasonably easily as the same names kept cropping up, when we suddenly found that we’d been beaten to the punch by triple j of all people, […]

Haiku from Japan

Haiku from Japan

Earlier in the year I wrote a few haiku reviews that I didn’t get around to publishing, the story of my life given the collection of half written pieces and sketched out ideas that clog my hard drive.  As I was recently in Japan on holiday, it seemed an apt time to think about posting them […]

2016: A Wonderful Soundtrack to the Worst.Year.Ever

2016: A Wonderful Soundtrack to the Worst.Year.Ever

2015 was a disappointing year of so many follow-up albums and anticipated new releases that just didn’t live up to expectations.  2016 may have been a terrible year in many respects, but for new music, it was a winner.  Here’s a selection (in no particular order) of some of my favourite albums from the year.

The return of Everett True | 94. Violent Soho

Nothing’s more obnoxious than the sight of young people enjoying themselves, unless it’s the sight of young people enjoying themselves in pretty much the exact same way you used to enjoy yourself when you were their age. Violent Soho are filed under ‘grunge’. Would I have liked ’em back then? Alcohol and largesse meant my taste […]

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 […]

The Friday Afternoon Playlist, 24.01.2014

Bo Ningen – Henkan Last weekend I went down to the Gold Coast for this year’s Big Day Out festival and saw some of the worst bands in the history of music. However, thanks to a recommendation from Collapse Board contributor Brendan Eales, I also caught Japan-via-London psych-rock four piece Bo Ningen, who, despite playing […]
