Krakatau, Twerps – An Evening Of Modern Music, Boney, Melbourne, VIC (2014-05-16)

This was another show (I think?) organised by James Tom. This time at Boney, which is a room I really like provided it doesn’t get too packed (Twerps playing meant that it got way too packed). KRAKATAU Krakatau are a fantastic avant-jazz, prog band featuring both James and Dylan from Hyperborea band. I was first […]

Legendary Hearts, Repairs, Horse Macgyver, Soft Power – Sunday School, Public Bar, North Melbourne, VIC (2014-05-04)

I knew that I had to catch Soft Power while Andrew was down in Melbourne playing shows, this Sunday School was a perfect opportunity. LEGENDARY HEARTS Legendary Hearts is Andrew Cowie (Angel Eyes, Match Fixer) and Kieran Hegarty (Superstar). They currently have a cassette out via Not Not Fun (which I’m still chasing a copy of, […]

Ausmuteants – Monday Night Mass, Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2014-04-28)

I can’t remeber why I didnt see anyone else play, but this Ausmuteants set is great. AUSMUTEANTS This was the first time I’d heard them play a few of the songs that ended up on the latest album. The Echo Beach cover is great, I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that Hozac is putting out […]

Drooling Mystics, Miracle Cure, Hyperborea – Cinema As Sound, Long Play, Fitzroy North, VIC (2014-04-24)

This show was organised by James Tom (of Hyperborea, Krakatau, Elevator Alligators). Long Play is an excellent venue, especially for shows that are appreciated better in an intimate, seated environment (such as this one). It’s pretty unique in that regard. Drooling Mystics played in the dark, the following two acts played with different films projected […]

Freejack, Flat Fix, Soma Coma, Repairs, Nun – Nun LP Launch, The John Curtin, Melbourne, VIC (2014-04-19)

FREEJACK Liam Osborne is Freejack. Liam also runs the consitstently excellent Future Archaic label, has played in punk bands Flesh World and Russel St Bombers, and performs as Baader and Lucid Castration. Freejack is nasty, broken techno; it is probably my favourite of his various outputs. I’d never seen Freejack live before, but Cooper told […]
