Mad Nanna, Eastlink, Baseball – Monday Night Mass, Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2014-03-03)

Baseball were not a band that I was familiar with at all but the supports made this Mass essential. Recordings sound great, the NSC band room makes it easy. MAD NANNA New Mad Nanna song! First track, instrumental. Got some of the I Wanna See You grunt; great stuff. Regular Michael, Pat, Ian, Karl lineup […]

Cuntz – Monday Night Mass, Northcote Social Club, Northcote VIC (2014-02-24)

This was a great lineup, and I would have loved to stay for the rest of the bands but I was halfway through moving house. I did manage to catch Cuntz’s set though, and they were great. Sounds good too. I’m glad they brought the synth along this time, it was great to hear those […]

Baked Light – Gertrude Contemporary, Fitzroy, VIC (2014-02-01)

Baked Light is the duo of Joel Stern (Sky Needle, Greg Boring, Soft Power ect…) and Tarquin Manek (Bum Creek, Piklet, Tarcar, Fingers Pty Ltd ect…). I first heard them on tape via Manek’s own Out of Mates Bait label and was super impressed, making note to try and catch them next time they performed. […]

Dane will often come out between acts and do magic tricks for the crowd while the band sets up. Last time my old housemate […]
