Woollen Kits, Super Wild Horses, Bitch Prefect – Bitch Prefect ‘Birds Nerds’ LP Launch, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2013-12-06)

Bitch Prefect PosterThis was (obviously) a fantastic lineup, and turned out to be just as awesome a show as you’d expect. Aside from being the launch of Bitch Prefect’s ‘Birds Nerds’ LP, this was also the last Super Wild Horses Melbourne show, as announced a few days before the gig. All three bands played great sets, and the recording turned out awesome. Following the night, Twerps posted a Facebook status claiming it as the “hands down, best show of the year” which is about as good of a recommendation and anybody needs.

It was nice to finally catch Woollen Kits again and get a solid recording of their current set. Much like last time, they played a couple of tracks that have yet (to my knowledge) show up on record, along with a whole lot of favorites. Melbourne streetpress The Music referred to the band as “Woollen Kits Bitch” in their listing for the gig, if you’re wondering what Tom is referencing. Really great set, definitely the best of theirs that I’ve seen.

As stated in the intro, this was announced at the relatively last minute to be the final Super Wild Horses show in Melbourne (my guess is it would have been their last altogether had they not already been booked for Panama festival). As such, the band dubbed themselves “Super Wild Hearses” for this show (see what they did?) and were accompanied on stage for some songs by the “Psychedelic Babies“, two other women (I assume friends of the band) who sang back-up, played percussion and generally filled out the songs nicely. Really glad that I was able to document this; they were a fantastic band and will be sorely missed. This set was a great farewell.

Another fantastic Bitch Prefect performance, sound quality is really good and includes a great mix of old and new material. I love that they’ve been using End Of Time to open performances, rather than close as it does on the LP. The build up to Adelaide works beautifully. Plus, any performance that includes Shipped It is a winner in my book. Very, very good band.
