Wet Blankets, Ausmuteants, Hierophants, The Living Eyes – Anti Fade Arvo, Pan Studios, Geelong, VIC (2013-08-31)

I’ve professed my love for Anti Fade Records before; none of this love has diminished in the time since. Consistently awesome. This was a fantastic lineup and thankfully I had already planned to go stay with my family for a few days, so it wasn’t a problem to sneak into Geelong for this gig. Pan […]

Crude, Eastlink, Täx – Bar Open, Fitzroy, VIC (2013-08-29)

So anybody that follows my blog is likely to know by now that my dictaphone can be, at times, a little unreliable. Mostly this means blown out recordings that I have to go in and clean up in Audacity (to varying levels of success); this I can forgive. What I cannot forgive however is when […]

Prolife, White Hex, Forces, Lakes – Lakes ‘Blood Of The Grove’ LP Launch, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2013-08-24)

To begin with, please forgive my lack of information regarding these sets; I don’t know a whole lot about most of these bands. White Hex, Forces and Lakes were three bands which I had never properly seen live before, but had been recommended to me by various people. So when I saw this lineup I […]

The Sulphur Lights, Wonderboy, Leather Towel, Counsellor Of Aging, The Towelheads – New Centre Of The Universe Vol. 2 Launch, The Grace Darling, Collingwood, VIC (2013-08-17)

Anti Fade is one of my favorite labels in Australia and for good reason – since the first cassette release back in 2011 Anti Fade have been the source of some of the best punk and garage that the (no longer) unappreciated Geelong, Melbourne and Australia has to offer. Pretty much everything Billy puts out […]

Toothache, Prolife, Miss Destiny – Monday Night Mass, The Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2013-08-12)

The great thing about Monday Night Mass (well, one of the great things) is that it presents an awesome opportunity for good bands that may not yet have a following to play to a sizable crowd. To call any of the three bands that played at this Monday Night Mass “new” may be a bit […]

Gugg, Superstar, A Band Called Life – A Band Called Life 7” Launch, The Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2013-08-04)

This show was the launch of the new self-titled 7″ EP by A Band Called Life, compiled by the ever reliable Alberts Basement from a rehearsal recorded by the band in Tasmania back in 2004. The show was memorable for a variety of reasons that will soon become apparent as I go into more detail […]
