Song of the day – 640: Bushwalking

Everett True invokes the carnal spirit of the Mary Poppins books in a somewhat cackhanded attempt to explain his fascination for the new Bushwalking album.

Song of the day – 499: Fabulous Diamonds

If this band were from Brisbane they wouldn’t be so darn nonchalant.

Song of the day – 467: New Estate

Fuck the press quotes: I don’t trust a single one of those supine, fawning cunts.

The Collapse Board interview – Samuel Miers (School Girl Report)

“I use nails under the strings on one song. Spanners, a peg, a drill, a headband and a bracelet. They all give different sounds to each song.”

eight ‘classic’ bands… a rejoinder

Julian says: “Everybody’s always like, ‘Oh yeah the music used to be better in the 80s’. No it fucking didn’t.” So what current bands are as good as The Fall, Joy Division, Buzzcocks, The Birthday Party or Dexy’s [sic] in their prime? Not to mention Blondie, Ramones, Jonathan Richman… (This comment originated on another post.
