Kitchen’s Floor – ‘Dictaphone’ (Reissue)
I guess you could call this a reissue. But get this clear. It was never issued. Don’t care. Do you? I just listen to the first few seconds of ‘Loneliness is a Dirty Mattress’ and my heart stirs. Dictaphone is early Kitchen’s Floor. A few songs recorded, thrown together on tape and put out there […]
The return of Everett True | 129. Kitchen’s Floor
Just a slice of malignant, malodorous, malnutritous magnificence to start the day. We’re going to be leaving Brisbane in a couple of months time, and there’s plenty I’ll miss. For now, I want to focus on the noise. Matt Kennedy’s been a constant, a reminder that not everyone is a smug happy pool-owner or inane stoned-out […]
The return of Everett True | 96. Bent
I’m more familiar with this type of music than I ought to be, but that’s hardly Bent’s fault. I note on the same SoundCloud that this Bent album is available from – and sure, it squalls and scratches and irritates in all the right places – that there’s a new compilation coming out, Escape From […]
What I did tonight instead of going to see Beaches play live, part 3

More punk than you’ll ever be, punk.
Song of the day – 469: Meat Thump
Punk rock, and attitude, and … shit, this shit is *fucked up*, you feel me?
R.I.P. Brendon Annesley (Negative Guest List)
I’d been well aware of Negative Guest List as a genius ‘zine with shitloads of enthusiasm and energy and attitude for quite a while now.
by Matt Kennedy It’s been dead quiet around here the last two months.
Song of the day – 185: Sky Needle
Without a doubt, Joel Stern is one of my very favourite Brisbane people. He’s enthusiastic, forward-thinking, righteous, good-humoured (so that’s four counts he’s got me trumped on, then). He regularly puts on evenings of improv, noise, punk, esoterica and just plain weird shit at his seemingly omnipresent Disembraining Machine (you can find recordings of every […]
Eternal Soundcheck is one year old
Wow what a cool night, thanks to everyone who came and enjoyed this. Definitely a highlight of my year. KNEE CHIN Over the course of this year Knee Chin have come from being a loose houseshow band into an incredibly great weirdo pop band that can take on the world. Brisbane’s finest. GERALD KEANEY & THE GERALD […]
