To provide a bio for the man would take days, given his role as a producer, DJ, innovator, visionary, and whose fingerprints can Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam found all over the genre and all across the world.
Fans of the man have been desperate to see the legendary Full On Ferry experience down under, with sneak peeks on YouTube looking mindblowing. Finally Australians will have the chance to catch it in action this year. During his short yet illustrious career, he has worked with artists as diverse as Steve Aoki to Felix Da Housecat — and with many more Singing In The Rain / Side By Side - The Cliff Adams Singers - The 1000th Sing Something Simple the horizon, there is no end in sight.
I grew up with my mother - and she is a bit of a big hippie - and since she liked it, we stayed there for a few years.
I think we did a bit of a world tour together, being in different countries and all Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam. I also have a feeling that we were in Sydney, she used to tell me. Later turning his production expertise to producing cuts for the dance floor, he has wowed crowds globally ever since.
Indeed, having had a background in urban music placed him well to deal with reconciling the challenges of what else is out there. Because I produce for different artists it feels natural for me to do things on my own. I also did two tracks with Crookers and now The Bloody Beetroots are coming into the studio to lay down a couple of tracks as well.
So it has been a pretty busy time. That said, you have to do what comes to your own mind and what feels interesting to you. As an artist, you should have your own special sound. I just want to do whatever. There is also another called Nigerian Connection, which has just been mastered and should be out soon.
Rounding out that Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam is a host of writing, directing and acting credits under his belt and while trawling through his overwhelming body Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam work, you start to get an idea of the creative pulse that drives Sawhney every minute of every day.
With an upcoming run of intimate band performances as well as DJ sets in Australia, Sawhney is looking forward to the opportunity to play the music that he says colours his life. When I was scoring The Alfred Hitchcock Project I had to make assumptions about his intentions for the film and the psychological motives of the characters.
All of it is interesting and relevant and music is the perfect language within which to explore that. Sawhney is using the medium of theatre to contemplate the connections between the scientific and the spiritual — namely quantum physics, Hinduism and spirituality as a whole. Assumption is based on faith and scientific discovery is based on evidence. As we discovered from what we know about dark matter or about the Higgs Boson is new information and this new information can overturn the discoveries Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam came before.
The idea is that you have two particles that behave in exactly the. Time and space are irrelevant because they have a system of instant communication between them. You have these things that suggest there is a true fabric to the universe, but then you have someone like Richard Dawkins who claims that science proves that there can be no religious elements.
I think we would be very arrogant indeed to think that our limited brains and minimal senses can possibly fathom the intricacies of the universe as though it is some easy-to-solve puzzle.
Returning, after a long period of hypothesis, to music, he manages to unite these seemingly diverse ideas. We only understand what is within our dimension to understand. Music is a way of manifesting or having a connection with divine intentions. As a musician you are a medium through which the universe manifests itself.
You have Michelangelo who said that the sculpture was already hidden in the stone or Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam Coltrane who said that improvisation was like a bird he wanted to catch so there is this notion that something is already in the air. This myth that we are creating is just that, we are merely uncovering the soul of emotion that exists in everything and we are just an extension of that.
On the phone from a tour date in Spain he passionately describes his philosophy and gives the impression of a thoughtful, critical nature. It should have some physical appeal. I think you have Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam transmit something that is really sometimes impossible to express any other way. How do you express that through words? Those things were creating a little bit of the magic of the whole thing happening together. At the end, the important thing is to accept that is what you have done at that moment and that you Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam been true to yourself.
You have been true to the music and that is what you are at that moment. For me though, production is really the thing I like to do. I have been doing it for almost twenty years and fifteen years as a career. Some Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam get really big and they last like three years.

Her Perfect remains in the radio charts weeks after release. We hear she was dissatisfied with the label for well over a year. Which is your favourite subject of these three, when it comes to country songs? Murder for sure. Every time. If Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn were both hanging over a cliff and you had to let go of one to save the other, who would you save and why? I only discovered Loretta last year, but maybe her songs are a little better.
Loretta has lived longer, but her first guitar was also a Harmony, like my guitar. Oh the shame. Fill in the blanks. Local legends Laura Imbruglia and Courtney Barnett are taking to The Tote stage with their bands to present Spirit Of The Living God - Dr.

If you were stuck on an island with a country artist who you had to Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam with for the good of all mankind, who would you like that artist to Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam and why?
George Jones. But only if Tammy Wynette was there as well. What song are you most looking forward to singing at the show? A Girl Named Sue. What happened to country music?
I have pondered this a little bit and never come to a resolution. I guess the bigger question is what happened to popular music in general? Blame technology and bad taste. What are your all-time top five country songs about booze? Two goals I totally achieved. Why is country music called country music? I guess because it came from the country?
The Black Arm Band are an ensemble cast of musicians, poets and writers who share a vision of educating and enlightening people about Aboriginal history, culture and language through the use of music. They began in as part of a local project funded by The City Of Melbourne and The Arts Council but have since grown into an international multi-faceted company and have performed their various shows to audiences all around the world.
Their charming and fascinating Art Director, Lou Bennett, is as prolific as she is interesting. Coming from a musical family of Aboriginies, Scots, Irishmen and Mauritians, she began performing as soon as she could walk, and has toured the world over with her previous band Tiddas. Now instead of having 34 people on stage we have The second is Big Law, which is about how important the law of the land is to aboriginal people.
Not necessarily the law of man or man-made law but how if you practise the law of the land you will reap the benefits of that country. The third is about coming up close now and is listening to the country and learning the law of the country, the change of the seasons.
The last episode is called Rainstorm and of course rainstorm brings the weather and the cycle of life. Going hunting, Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam when to go hunting, knowing when to reap the benefits Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam the country instead of exploiting it I suppose. This fascination and dedication to preserving mother tongues has permeated her work and recently saw her take The Black Arm Band to London where they performed at the cultural Olympiad, where she collaborated with welsh folk outfit 9Bach.
And so it was quite a powerful show to present for the diverse audience of cultural Olympiad. Their shows are as profoundly educational as they are musically entertaining. Melbourne-based duo Fabulous Diamonds possess a strangely assured idiosyncratic dynamic, one that applies to all aspects of their work. Recorded in a relatively short period of time in mid, Commercial Music saw release this August. So it can vary a little bit like that, but we go in there with fully structured, functioning songs.
Plus we liked how our last album sounded. Throughout their career, Fabulous Diamonds have enjoyed more than a few choice support slots from international acts — covering an eclectic spectrum of genres. We started up as a parody but ended up as a revolution.
It was really bizarre. They were all waiting at the barriers for Miike Snow, staring at us, glancing at their watches and phones. But the guys from Miike Snow told us they thoroughly enjoyed it. We still have a lot of fun playing them. I still really like a lot of those tracks and get a lot of enjoyment from playing them live. People are just interested in it.
There seems to be this little niche where people want to hear strictly electronic sounds. So we just keep our fingers crossed a little bit. It was a lot of work. We felt good at the end of it when we came off stage Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam we really felt quite good about the performance, it was a full room, it was crazy.
We got to where we are today without radio help, bar the local stations, which are awesome. It may well cross over into radio, who knows. We go record by record and see how we go.
They are really passionate about it. I think the marketing departments and record labels. Milling The Wind is out now via Universal. A true buzz band in every sense Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam the term, the four-piece was catapulted into the limelight in true British music press fashion, and the lads have been under the pump ever since. Even in this short space of time, the band has matured considerably as musicians — something Cowan says was instigated by enlisting acclaimed producer Ethan Johns for the new release.
Ethan records everything live without Auto-Tune, click track or anything — he just gets the vibe right, then he gets the sound he wants from the source. Then we just go for it. This was something we really wanted to bring out. We wanted to go from being an indie band to a rock band. We often take each other to pieces for silly things such as little guitar parts or drum fills.
That created a bit of pressure in the studio sometimes, but out of it all I think we emerged a much, much better band. The only pressure that matters has always been from ourselves — I feel pressure every day with everything we do and I kind of thrive on that. Unfortunately, it was for all the wrong reasons. But not before the four-piece understood the full scope of this immediate exposure. And then, afterwards, things got crazy. All the news and media outlets, however they felt politically, used it in whatever angle they wanted.
It became less about us and more about Mitt using our song. All we wanted was for him not to use our song. Play Dirty - Poison - Look What The Cat Dragged In Of The Woods, released in May, was the product of a year and a half of relative quiet from the Pickups camp.
The band gigged no more than a handful of times and shifted their focus to maintaining their day-to-day lives. There were still things to do. And we realise that now. In doing so, Neck Of The Woods was given a weighty, introspective edge. So we decided we had to take some time off and actually live our lives.
To be honest, we just wrote and recorded this album quicker. It was nice to have more time to just be human beings, think and feel things without the pressure that we had early on.
We played live for so long before we ever went into a studio. Anything that we felt shy about before, we wanted to expose. Thankfully for Aubert and Silversun Pickups, the opportunity for them to dive into the many layers of Neck Of The Woods in a live setting is right around the corner.
And as Aubert believes, it may go over best in Australia for Harvest. And those were by far the maddest shows of our lives in terms of the crowd going apeshit. We were so overwhelmed. Tickets to the Sunday November 11 Harvest are now sold-out. The band are about to embark on a brief, but kilometre clocking national tour which sees them promoting their new album Songs From The Debt Generation. It started with the random meeting Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam two like-minded individuals, guitarist and vocalist Sean, originally from Liverpool, and bass player Paul Bovenkirk from Perth.
Sean, in his northwest English accent, explains further. A couple of guys, just having a bit of a rant at the world, with instruments. The band is a three-piece, so inevitably the subject of drummers. EP in That release was followed by a tour of the UK, a highlight of which was appearing on the front cover of the NME, Sean says. They combine piss-take scripts and a DIY ethos, which seems to complement the music.
Expect garage thrash, antics. We played a gig at 3am in this underground club and the venue owner ended up on my shoulders singing a Clash cover we were playing. We did the recording out in the spare room out the back where my twisted aunty was living for a while. It was a really cool setting — we thought it suited the vibe.
They were all playing less and actually talking about what they do. That mindset has changed everything for us. AZ hip-hops to a happy birthday beat, and Ms. Mimi takes her students on a modern dance journey.

Gertrude Contemporary Art Space, until 12 June. Tuesday to Friday 11am to 5. Large animals curl in the laps of alienated figures that seem to be of the world of fable rather than the world we know. Tell us about yourself. Alex McCulloch, director and equity partner of Metro Gallery: At 22 years of age I established my own gallery McCulloch Gallery in the Melbourne CDB; this gallery focused on street art, Indigenous art, and was dedicated to giving a public profile to new promising artists.
I kept this afloat, by utilising the Somebody Loves Me - Harry James - More Harry James In Hi-fi for a diversity of exhibitions and music evenings for five years before moving to Metro Gallery as director in June What are some of your past highlights? In recent times having Blek the Rat exhibit at Metro was a significant night as it drew out of all of the corners of Melbourne artists and followers of street art.
Tickets through the venue. Can you tell us about it? The exhibition is cannily called This May Hurt and, gauging the response from the hundreds of people who attended the opening night, when all his work was sold, it did indeed have a particular impact.
The other artist being exhibited is Justin Lee Williams. Again, like Peck, he works on a large scale. His highly illustrative works pencil and water colour are ornate, dynamic in colour, Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam come.
Leach took out the Archibald Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam Wynne prizes this year and Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam the Metro Gallery art prize in His works are exquisite and he is highly respected amongst his peers.
These artists are considered the Gods of the Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam street art scene. The show runs 27 September to 17 October. We have also booked in a solo exhibition with Swoon in So, as of today Interval will be called Front Row. And this is only the beginning. Mars is next. Then Jupiter, and beyond the infinite… There will be a stronger focus on the local arts scene, with gallery profiles, more pictures, loads of features, reviews, and anything else we can come up with.
Billed as a darkly comic exploration of the politics and culture of fear, Urchin is a tantalising hybrid theatrical work by exciting new company Encyclopedia Of Animals. Utilising text, film, song, choreography, and kinetic sculpture, Urchin tells the story of two brothers who claim to have an object that is a vaccine for fear and the ex-motivational speaker they employ to sell it. Christopher Brown, who not only co-wrote and co-directs the production but also stars Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam it, says that the idea of getting rid of fear would be quite an upsetting one for those with a vested interest.
We called it the Urchin because it resembles the shape of a sea urchin. Sea urchins have an innate fear mechanism rather than having to learn what to fear.
Our Urchin [the device] purports to be a vaccine for fear, which is quite a subversive idea when you think about it. A device that removes fear threatens to render the exploiters of fear — governments. Our story is motivated by the politics of fear and the fascinating topic of how fear has been hijacked yet concerns itself with the personal fears of the three main characters.
Brown says that other found objects may well play a part in determining future Encyclopedia Of Animals productions. Perhaps all our work should begin with an animal; it would certainly make literal sense of our name. An excellent Australian sci-fi writer is Greg Egan.
Le Vagabond - Various - France is used to depict the experience of being inside the Urchin.
As Cringe was departing the Melbourne Museum forecourt and trying Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam avoid being decapitated by wellphotographed errant skateboards, she could hear the strident tones. Who would have thought 47 dachshunds would cause such a stir? Well, maybe the artist responsible Bennett Miller, who has been working with sausage dogs for a little while now.
His latest work Dachshunds UN is a scale replica of a former United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland complete with little country nameplates, but staffed by said sausages dogs. While the first Saturday performance went off without any visible hitches, the work is not without a woof of controversy.
A reliable source in the dachshund community did tell Cringe that there was some dispute over the types of dachshunds invited to participate in the installation. Apparently only the smooth-haired.
Prior to dachshunds, Miller spent five years obsessed with mini golf and created his Golf War series ofwhich retold the story of a war in Iraq across nine different courses. Clearly Miller is not a man who does things by halves so expect more canine-fuelled works. Dachshund U. They say you should never work with children or animals and so in terms of risk, employing over three shows little furry beasts in your show, could be considered on par with being Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam bomb disposal expert.
For more details head to nextwave. Snakes On A Plane 2. Mars Needs Women 3. Zombie Strippers 7. Bambi Meets Godzilla Fish Tank is verily steeped in hopelessness: its every dream tainted by a sad reality; its every note of optimism ringing false. Such a scandalous moment is more mundane than anything else. In many ways, that serves the story perfectly: in this world, a year-old is entirely capable of using their sexuality as power; a grown adult just as capable of abusing a position of intimacy.
As always, the St Kilda Film Festival offers a full buffet of shorts; drama, comedy, animation, doco, etc. So it is that festivals like St Kilda create focus and networking opportunities for those toiling in shorts.
Scottish born and now Sydney resident filmmaker Gemma Lee is someone getting used to the joys of the festival circuit. Her sevenminute drama The Wake has already screened at Tribeca and Flickerfest. For her, stumbling onto the setlist at St Kilda is more than enough reward. The Wake was shot in Melbourne on a day of hailstorms, with takes grabbed quickly between downpours. Made cheaply and shot quickly they allow filmmakers to play with the form; and even if they often end up looking like second year cinematography exercises they permit a freedom that features rarely grant.
Timpano, meanwhile, is less of a careerist. For Lee, being screened at festival events like St Kilda is certainly a notch in the belt. True, it delves into some dark and difficult moral territory, but it eases the tension with crackling bursts of humour and moments of genuinely affecting humanity. Good thing too, because the serious side is very serious: betrayal, culpability, suicide, damnation. Under the adroit and often beautifully subtle direction of David Myles, the 27 strong cast bring this adventurous, existential work to frequently bristling life.
Holly Shanahan is Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam lynchpin as defence counsel Cunningham; at turns sexy, strident and cracked. Chantelle Jamieson almost steals the show with her hip hop St Monica. It is a strong and staggeringly well-constructed piece with much control and mastery of pace.
There is black-and-whiteness about the script, especially with the dialogue from the younger characters whose voices ring true. Some fine work is elicited from Tim Potter playing the broken Henry. This production of That Face, however, holds little back and so fails to completely satisfy. Already battling to cut through the white noise of information freely available online, will the digital migration give writers a stronger voice? In her first year as director Dempster is hoping to extend its reach even further with a ten-day schedule of events that people can choose to attend in person Thy Will Be Done - Jude Ippoliti - God Is The Father participate Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam online.
But while there may be much to discuss about the future, Dempster said the festival will continue to remain faithful to its roots with a focus on the craft of writing, and of course a showcase for new zines.
We have three things that we do; Brute - KMFDM - Mp3 Digital Collection Vol.2 create professional development opportunities for writers, we create.
Plus we get out of work! Originating from the wilds north of the border — well, Newcastle to be precise — the trio have spent the past two years in the studio producing their first full-length album, The World We Live.
As single All These Lies testifies, they have managed to transfer a remarkably tight live Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam onto disc — not a compliment granted lightly. As drummer Ben Briscoe suggests, such influences can shape ideas, but the final musical outcome should be unique. We get into the rehearsal room and each Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam of us has a different idea, a different sound that Finesse School - Jr.
Boss, DJ Scream & Frank White* - City Of Angels been spinning around our head. According to Briscoe, there is both risk and. Bassist and lead vocalist Chris Tester produced the record and Briscoe is full of praise for his efforts. As for the lengthy time spent working on The World We Live, Briscoe suggests two things: one, the album has been a genuine labour of love and two, it will be worth the wait. Our track All These Lies, for example, was originally over four minutes long. Our singer Chris produced the album and his work on that particular track has just been awesome.
Overall his work has been fantastic. We did have demos and singles but we were never happy with the way they sounded. Ramone on a skateboard? They soon realised the five tracks might not be what they wanted to Kate - Onyinas Guitar Band - Original Evergreen Tunes Of King Onyina Vol.
1. We need to move forward. That was the motivation behind having it mastered at Abbey Road. A skate park? This latest EP comments on drunken violence and has a go at the upper class. The rocking live set closer Fox News swings hard at mainstream media. If you listen to a band like The Jam they started as a punk band with social commentary and then moved on to other things, like Paul Weller started to do his northern soul.
The Clash started out political punk, not always of course, but then they expanded their horizons. The band stumbled upon punk as the best way to express themselves when they started, due to their lack of musicianship.
That led to their energetic and sweaty live show. We play music that is there for people to enjoy. It was a three-piece called Freeway that took him to the States, where in he was sharing stages with the likes of Walter Trout, who took him under his wing for a while. But still serious, if you know what I mean; more of an experiment. The aim as well was to do this album as a band.
We all had input Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam we all worked things out in the rehearsal studio and nutted out a few of the tunes in the recording studio too, sort of spur of the moment. One such group is a duo with saxophonist Seth Misterka, in which they explore the language of free jazz that nods to such greats as John Coltrane, Sun Ra and Anthony Braxton. The pair released their debut album Duo in via Melbourne label Heathen Skulls and are currently crisscrossing the country, having supported Chicago post-rock pioneers Tortoise as well as playing a bunch of their own shows.
This trip, however, is a much more low-key experience. It is nice to have it be more grass roots and not as big.
It definitely feels more direct in many ways. Having long been active in the New York avant-garde community, he has played alongside a huge number of artists such as Anthony Braxton and Shy Child.
They Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam experimented with the use of electronics on this record, using real-time processing and effects to add new textures to their material. This new element has also been incorporated into how the duo performs live. We try to cover all areas. Chase and Misterka met in the mid-noughties and began playing together almost immediately. So we Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam struck up a friendship and started jamming together. And then we would use those themes as an introduction to improvisation.
Hopefully the next one will be a little bit closer again. So those people have all grown up and they live in Stonnington, so they all go out to the festival, which is great, it makes it a different kind of festival. For Browne himself, marks 50 years in jazz, an achievement met by very few. Inthe City Of Stonnington is proud to present the most diverse, exciting and largest program yet.
For full details go to stonningtonjazz. Visit coopers. Now, ditching their bands, the pair finish up a run of east coast shows before heading to the States.
For a taste of what to expect, tune into Triple J this Friday at 7. What kind of audience do Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam call this? The four of them are like little worry dolls: simultaneously structured from and struggling against a multitude of tightly wound strands as each band member belts their hardest to be heard.
The music could sound like a warzone, but instead it works. Alligator rouses me momentarily from the sulky mire all around me and I feel positively human again when the encore treats us with Back In Your Head. What a shame about the rest of it.
Perhaps the dead vibe was there the whole night and I just thought that people were saving themselves for the main act. Whatever it was, I think it was ultimately an unfortunate miscommunication of something, somehow.
Alice Body. Now on their third life since kicking back into gear inthe English rockers — or, for purists, Ian Astbury Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam Billy Duffy plus others — who straddle gothic, heavy and psych rock, are touring their Love album in full, an album perhaps too earnest but not sullen enough to be grabbed onto by cool-staking revivalmongers.
The obese dudes in biker jackets reaching for clouds; the woman making no subtle post-gig intentions clear to her boyfriend; the skinny geeks on shoulders screaming; the scary prison type knocking us out of the way to take photos on his phone and the two Sunset Strip lookers on the raised side landing seemingly trying to touch Astbury with their none-too-covered chests. Rejects, the lot of us, and this is our soundtrack. There are few sonic variations or intro trickery to distinguish songs.
Adam Curley. A tropical, Copacabana feel consumes the stage, with inflatable sharks hanging up the back and twinkling lights Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam the front of stage. What a gene pool. Well, Williams remains the same anyway. Drunk On Election Night shines Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam Kelly having us Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam and inject a little profanity into the chorus breaks. Funny stuff. Tying in lyrics that include Jimi Hendrix, Ringo Starr and Kelly in an underwater jam, is not something your typical Aussie muso could Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam quite manifest, and is what makes Dan Kelly so unique.
Another new Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic JamPoisoned Estuary Jam, is the highlight tonight. Eastern-flavoured guitar signatures battle against an African back-beat with a harmony swell that gives me goosebumps. Exiting the stage, Dan Kelly and his Dream Band leave us gobsmacked at the display as feedback swirls and drum loops play over and Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam until the lights shine back on.
Aussie gig of the year so far. Hands down. Nick Argyriou. A friend suggested that I Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam one of their shows, since as the Saltarella - Gigi Stok - I Grandi Successi Del Liscio Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam goes, the lead singer Marcus Rechsteiner — a Rubenesque man — Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam performed in a sequinned G-string.
Although the clothes stay on for the entire show, they still maintain my interest. It also sees them embark on their very first US tour and tonight is their second last show in Australia before they leave. The music is fast, loud and catchy and the lyrics are obnoxious and succinct.
Perhaps it was the reputation for hard living, hard drugs and violent crowds that held X back from being more than visceral outsiders to the music industry.
Time has definitely taken its toll on X, but also grants them the gift of experience which many younger performers lack. X remain energetic and true to their roots. Wright, in a floral jacket and ruffled shirt, sports a new, short hair look and Seafoam Green - The Hilltops - Big Black River is all gypsy madness in a flowing white dress with a gold headband over wild crimped.
Four gold satin-robed, catface mask-wearing backup singers are a telling addition to the show. She is an enthralling performer and physically inhabits the stage with convulsive dancing, twisted arms and crazy-eyed stares into the crowd.
She is undeniably the centrepiece here. Their music is a powerful and potent magic dreamscape, rich with the wonder of youth and the brokenness of lost innocence. Weaving tales of rabbits, wolves and forests, the two seem intent upon forcing enchantment back into the world. While Hart fills instrumental breaks by prancing around the stage in a flurry of musician hysteria, Wright and his An Eye For An Eye - Gods Tower - The Turns retreat with downcast eyes to a back corner.
Alone on keys and vocals, he delivers an earnest performance of this dark ode to dangerous love. Joined by a saxophonist in unveiling their hippie spirit anthem Come Together, the two prove the complementary nature of their shared vocal work. For crowd favourite Bones Of A Rabbit, Hart recites pained lyrics through gritted teeth before the two take to a set of cymbals and a drum with two drumsticks and an emotional ferocity that mirror the dramatic climax of the song.
Hart hits the high notes in Trapperkeeper, before the duo close Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam night with the lingering philosophising of Paperdolls. But nevertheless, the launch saw a stunning performance from a very promising young band.
Stefanie Markidis. So explains a Stephen Hawking-like recording pre-gig as it dispenses advice on Wilco audience etiquette. An early highlight is a mesmerising Bull Black Nova, propelled by a stabbing, icy groove that erupts into a brain-frying squall as the song nears its conclusion.
Wilco are a band at the peak of Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam powers. Young Heretics, the quirky duo comprising Kitty Hart and ex-The Getaway Plan frontman Matthew Wright, launch their debut album The Lost Loves to a crowd that knows every word of every song, despite the release of the record the day before. Melbourne four-piece Our Anatomy opens proceedings, filling the cosy, lowlit pink walls with a punchy set and a polished rock sound.
The boys look the part in skinny jeans, checked shirts and long hair, and impress with their style of spacey, indie rock. Drummer Scott is a percussive master, all hard. House Of Leaves, without delusions of grandeur, have strived to develop a sound that is unique and expressive.
Their sound takes a peculiar combination of influences, interests and personal circumstances and produces something that is distinctive, creative and genuine. The music itself is a conglomerate of soaring melodies, rich harmonies, seismic heaviness, cascading rhythms and delicate ambience. Grong Grong were one of the lost hopes of the Australian punk rock experiment.
They burned too bright and too fast and left only confusion in their wake. The band tore up stages for a brief few years and left most perhaps a little relieved when they were gone, swallowed up again by the desperate suburbs of that desert town. Bands start at 9pm — get there early to avoid lines. They return to the venue, where they made their debut only three months ago, with a killer set of effervescent passion-pop.
Melbourne rockers Russia have been leaving audiences drenched in sweat of late with their highenergy live shows, phat riffs, big drums and short skirts. Russia have just finished their new EP titled, Life In Black And White, which promises to be their most true and rocking record to date. We will be back on Saturday 3 July to launch the album Avast! Wretched Sea. Once Lynch describes their live shows, you can see how the vibe the band try to project may be difficult to emulate on record.
Check caravanmusic. Despite starting out as a solo artist but has recently taken to the stage alongside her band The Shakers, who add rhythm and Grandma - Manceau - Life Traffic Jam aid her unique sound that she has made her own.
