Undead Apes Vinyl Launch
The Troubadour should have closed after this show. I can’t imagine the final night would have been half as good as this one; drunker and longer maybe, but if I want to cry in my beer over music I’ll watch The X Factor final again.
OK you’re right, I won’t ever do that again. And actually I’m just pissed off I wasn’t fast enough to get a ticket to the Final Night. But I did see the Final Night of The X Factor and I did cry in my beer. Dear god, the inhumanity.
But on Saturday night a seriously smashing time was had by all. Not as emotional as last week’s Vegas Kings’ send-off which was sad but in a good way. You can’t be sad watching Undead Apes. Undead Apes are what happened when a a couple of punks took power-pop out into the carpark and convinced it to harden the fuck up. How could the love child of Sekiden, Dick Nasty, Gazoonga Attack, and every band Adam Scott has ever been in be anything but great.
I bought the T-shirt and the Vinyl. You should too. And they are doing dates in Sydney and Melbourne to support the release so keep an eye out. I videoed ‘Taxes’ on my new Nokia N8 and it looks good. Have a look.
Also, I’m looking forward to the Nova Scotia album in the new year.
