Wet Blankets, Constant Mongrel, Leather Towel – Slow Club, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2014-04-06)

Last Leather Towel show before John left for New Zealand, probably the best too. Excellent poster art by Per. I got one of the t-shirts, it didn’t cost me $80, snagged it for $17.80 (everything I had). WET BLANKETS Jake on keys, Zach on guitar, Mitch on drums, Billy on bass. Zane killing it out […]

Baader, Velvet Whip, Efficiency, Leather Towel – The Grace Darling, Collingwood, VIC (2014-03-22)

BAADER Liam of Flesh World, Freejack, Lucid Castration, Russell St Bombers. Total time 20mins. DOWNLOAD HERE VELVET WHIP From memory I think the bass amp was fucking up, so there’s a bit of a gap a few minutes in while they get it fixed. Total time 18mins. DOWNLOAD HERE EFFICIENCY From Adelaide. Total time 17mins. […]

Leather Towel, Rat Columns, Constant Mongrel – The Gasometer, Collingwood, VIC (2013-10-04)

I’d been looking forward to this show for a long while – I’d been a massive fan of Rat Columns’ main man David West’s other (there are many, including Total Control and Lace Curtain) project Rank/Xerox since the band’s sole LP was reissued by a couple of different European labels. My (re)discovery of that amazing […]

Leather Towel, Eastlink, Exhaustion – Monday Night Mass, Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2013-09-23)

One of the best masses in a very long time. The legendary Brian Turner of New Jersey radio station WFMU DJ’d on the night (if you haven’t heard his live session with Mad Nanna then listen to that now. Amazing.), and I can’t think of many bands that would be this good of a showcase […]

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 […]

Leather Towel, Pronto – Pronto Residency, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2013-07-17)

I’d been interested in catching one of the Pronto residency gigs since they started up – I’d heard a lot of really great things about the band and I was very keen to catch them live. I figured this show was probably best, as I’d get another chance to see the amazing Leather Towel. Batpiss […]

Leather Towel, Mark Sultan – The Gasometer, Collingwood, VIC (2013-07-04)

This recording has probably taken the most work to get up here yet, but it was worth it because the Leather Towel set in particular was amazing. Something was fucking up with the dic on this night and, although it didn’t show up on the volume levels when I was there, the volume would randomly […]
