“I didn’t listen to pop music growing up,” he reveals. “If I listened to music, it would be something classical”

10 Random Songs on my iPod (played when I’m bone tired)

One drunken female fan fell straight at my feet, and offered her hand to me to waltz while she was recovering. Wish I’d accepted.

Everett True’s List of 10 Things from 2010

The problem with Brisbane appears to be an overload of the creative process: there are too many folk being creative and not enough people satisfied with being consumers

my iTunes Top 20, week ending 17.09.10

I’m only including one track per album (aside from the omnipresent Bluebeat 45s, from which I’ve drawn three) as to do otherwise would unbalance the entire chart. This isn’t accurate by any means, and complete omits any listening that takes place (for example) at the office, on the bus, in the car, on vinyl, in […]


Tara Simmons – ‘I Cannot Be Saved’ [music video]

Ed’s note: Edward left this in my inbox without any sort of explanatory note. I’m guessing he wants Collapse Board to post this video up here to help publicise himself. I can’t imagine it’s for any sort of musical reasons. As I happen to be in a successful local band with him, The Thin Kids – transparency, […]

Song of the day – 137: Isaac Snazell Thackray

Indulge me here. I’m a dad, and this is Isaac’s first recorded song. I keep meaning to ask Ed if The Thin Kids can cover this, reckon we could do a great fast, brief version… although perhaps not as fine as the original. I love the way Isaac keeps throwing in a few “yeah, yeah’s” […]

Song of the day – 127: The Thin Kids

I’m running this to celebrate The Thin Kids nabbing the support slot on Kate Nash‘s forthcoming Splendour side-shows in Melbourne and Sydney. Fair play to Mess And Noise for running a news story on this. At least they printed it, even if it was in tones of complete incredulity. Most would have ignored it. I’m […]

Song of the day – 96: Patrik Fitzgerald

To celebrate the fact my formative influence Patrik Fitzgerald has befriended me on Facebook, and was even nice enough to “like” a recent Thin Kids video, I figured it’s long overdue that I pay tribute to him here. This particular song I’m posting had a major effect on me when I first heard it back […]

Song of the day – 75: Edward Guglielmino

I’m declaring a prior interest here. The fact remains, however, that this is a nice cover of a Thin Kids song by one of the Thin Kids that isn’t me. Ed is a fascinating character: vulnerable and against-the-grain and possessed of an inner belief that has nothing to do with peers. His mother really ought […]

Song of the day – 71: The Gin Club

Nice single. Very nice single, in fact. I was listening to a recording of (band-leader by default) Ben Salter, playing solo at Ric’s Bar a few weeks ago, and was once again struck by what an extraordinary, evocative drawl he has. He’s not singing on this – the first track released from The Gin Club’s […]
