Song of the Day #764: Georgia Maq
Casting my mind back to those carefree days at the back-end of 2019, I was struggling to decide on my favourite album of the year. All those end of year lists had been out for weeks/months but all I’d heard was a lot of ok albums and nothing that really stood out. Then very late […]
Song of the Day #763: Lee Ranaldo
At the very start, working from home seemed like it was going to be the dream. The Dream. Commuting time saved and converted into something more meaningful. The low productivity experiences of open plan office working changing to working set hours and finishing on time every day. Time to redesign this site, do more […]

It was always going to have to be something special to break the 14 month drought since the last time we went out to see and photograph a show. Brisbane’s best live band headlining Punkfest at Brisbane’s best venue? How could we turn down an opportunity like that?
Died Pretty @ The Croxton Bandroom 23.04.2021
For the last year it’s been like a nuclear winter for the live music scene in Melbourne. Fourteen months to be specific. The last live gig I saw in Melbourne (apart from buskers in Bourke St) was Julia Jacklin at Melbourne Zoo back in February 2020. That was just before Covid Lockdown 1.0 happened. I […]
Song of The Day #762: XTC
Truth be told, I haven’t listened to a lot of new music in the last year. I just haven’t had the energy for it. Life went from making myself as busy as possible to keep my day job when suddenly everything ground to a halt, more or less overnight, to working flat out, pretty much […]
Song of The Day #761: U.S. Girls
Here’s something else from Bills & Aches & Blues, the forthcoming 4AD tribute album to belatedly celebrate the label’s 40th birthday inn 2020. 4AD is a completely different label to what it was but it still has some great acts. Back in the day, thanks to Vaughn Oliver’s designs, 4AD records were instantly recognisable; you […]
Song of the Day #760 – Mess Esque (Mick Turner & McKisko) – Big Old Blue
It’s been a year this week since I started working from home. Last week was the one year anniversary of the last time I went out and saw live music, with the Sleaford Mods show at Triffid. I think by then the following night’s Pixies show had already been cancelled as everyone ran for cover […]
Song of the Day #759 – Tkay Maidza
I swear that every time Tkay Maidza releases a new song I say to myself “This has got to be posted up as a Song of the Day”. Then time gets away from me, as it always does, and all I’m left with is a draft with a heading, an embedded clip and a promise […]
