The Libertines – Gunga Din Justin Edwards: I could always understand the appeal of The Libertines in 2002/03 but also considered that they managed to peak between albums with the post-first album Don’t Look Back into the Sun and the pre-second album Can’t Stand Me Now. In 2014 I can’t really understand the appeal of […]
2010: Justin Edwards and Everett True found the site. It is intended as a radical alternative to the established Aus music press, with a focus on Brisbane.

Velociraptor launch their new single, ‘Ramona’, with a show at Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane, with support from The Good Sports and The Maryettas.
Go Violets (RIP) Despite living in the same city and them having been together for three years, I’ve never seen Go Violets live.
