It feels like only yesterday that we were talking to Kirsty from Party Dozen about their then upcoming second album, Pray For Party Dozen, and her experiences through the very first of many COVID lockdowns. Reading through that interview, I think there’s a sense of naivety on both our parts about COVID and what it […]
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 […]
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 […]

Let’s be honest for a second here. The Pop Group. They’re coming to Australia in the next couple of months, but not Brisbane. Y’bastards. Kenny G is still making records. Napalm Death is still making records. Ray Charles is still making records. Billy fucking dickhead is still making records. So why not a dose of […]
