Jamaica Jump Up #25: Sound System Special

Tickets $10 on the door for PBS members/$15 future members. Doors at 9.00 PM

It’s a sound system special this month at Jamaica Jump Up, and that means the Gasometer Hotel is going to be shaking to the vibrations of a heavy hi fi system built by local dub specialist Adrian Hough.

Originating from High Wycombe in the UK, Adrians Wall started building his sound system in late 2007, establishing a residency that ran over the next 4 years that saw him hosting dances with Channel One Sound system, Aba Shanti-I and Congo Natty to name just a few. Adrians Wall brings a heavyweight vibe each and every time they set up their giant speakers, and Jamaica Jump Up will be no exception!

Stepping up behind the wheel of this powerful bass boom box will be PBS 106.7FM’s own Mohair Slim (Blue Juice Radio Show), Rick Howe (Riddim Yard), Jesse Hype I (Babylon Burning radio show) and Lloyd Briggs (Deeep Space) as well as Miss Fee and the master creator himself, Adrian Hough!

Also dropping in on the night to toast this low frequency party will be the great Pat Powell (SYD), from The Melbourne Ska Orchestra.

Party from 9pm-3am – Door sales only – get down early to avoid missing out!

Jamaica Jump-Up: Sound System Special Saturday, August 19 at the Gasometer Hotel 484 Smith St, Collingwood

Entry $10 PBS MEMBERS / $15 FUTURE MEMBERS

Proudly presented by PBS.

Houses in Motion Pres. Hidden Spheres (Rhythm Section / Lobster Theremin | UK)

Houses in Motion invites: Hidden Spheres (Rhythm Section / Lobster Theremin | UK)

Hidden Spheres' love for music started early in life with a keen ear for sample digging and record collecting. This has helped to refine his production and distinctive sound, ticking off a number of spectacular releases over the years, with sounds ranging from sundrenched-hazy-lo-fi driven house, to dubbed out slow grooves. Notable releases including the 2016 release 'Well Well' on Bradley Zero's London based outfit, 'Rhythm Section', a number of defining classic cuts under Lobster Theremin's sub-label 'Distant Hawaii', a release recently announced under the Lobster Theremin banner, as well as a solo EP in 2015 released on Legendary Detroit label 'Moods & Grooves' which has featured many a house music hero (KDJ, Theo Parrish, Andres, Kyle Hall).

As a DJ Hidden Spheres draws from all his musical knowledge leading to an eclectic heart felt set that promises to be unique from the last, connecting the musical dots with a love for house at its heart.

Tickets $8 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

You know what they say. “Three’s a crowd”, but a good crowd at that. Buzz and The Pickups, The New Dregs and Cracker La Touf are bringing a night of raw, live Melbourne music to the Gasometer (23rd August). Coming off the back of 7” release, Cracker La Touf will kickstart the night, opening with their own unique brand of Garage/Pop, and utilising their own words “all we want to do, is party with you”. The New Dregs formerly known as MossMusic, playing second are here to show if they overcame their identity crisis. Only to be described through adjectives such as tongue-in-cheek or transparently-raw, these guys are not an act to miss. Finally, Buzz and The Pickups playing last, tying the night off with some new tunes, maybe to be heard on the very soon to be released EP. We know the suspense is killing us! $8 on the door. Bring a friend!

Reuben Stone Residency with Alana Wilkinson (UPSTAIRS) Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Reuben Stone has started the year off with a huge leap to the big time opening for UB40 on their national summer tour. That’s just the beginning of the story, his background as a street performer has built him a solid, well polished live show that will see him smash support slots for Tash Sultana and his own headline shows throughout the country. Reuben Stone has defined his sound drawing influences from various acoustic and electronic semblances. A multi instrumentalist defiantly layering guitar, bass, trombone, beat boxing, and a synthesizer in loop sections to create entire songs on the fly. A landscape of soulful undertones tightly packed with chunky beats, fused with ambient vocals and dub delays; Reuben’s prospects for the future are vast with a colossal eye for collaborating amongst Australia’s top touring acts and spreading to large-scale festivals, already crossing of the list, festivals such as Burning Man, Shambhala, Singapore Grand Prix, Queenscliff Festival.

ASRC Winter Benefit Bash with Rocket Science, RVG, Hi-Tec Emotions, Magnets + More

Tickets $18+BF/$20 on the door. Doors at 7.00 PM

CELEBRATE THE DEPTHS OF WINTER WITH A ROCK N ROLL BENEFIT EXTRAVAGANZA!!

Some of the biggest rock stars in melbourne are taking the stage mid-winter to raise money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre #KeepThemSafe campaign. The acts of the night will be:

+++ Rocket Science +++

+++ RVG +++

+++ Hi-Tec Emotions +++

+++ Magnets +++

+++ DJ Richie Twelfiftee +++

+++ Dj Lady Shakes +++

  • More to come!

The #KeepThemSafe campaign raises much-needed funds for the hundreds of people seeking asylum this winter. The Turnbull government has cruelly given over 1100 asylum seekers until October 1st to complete a complex 60-page refugee application in english only. With limited legal aids and translators to to help assist those in need, the ASRC are taking donations to help raise funds that will:

  1. Fund a dedicated Para-legal Coordinator to support a new emergency Sunday legal clinics for people seeking asylum who have less than 14 days to apply, or be at risk of losing their right to work, Medicare and income support.

  2. Pay the mandatory $35 fee for all refugee applications for up to 850 people who can’t afford this.

  3. Cover the cost of training and supporting over 100 new legal volunteers required to respond to this crisis and assist more people seeking asylum quickly.

  4. Pay for onsite interpreters for when we work with survivors of torture, and who need face-to-face interpreters to feel safe in order to disclose their story so we can prepare their application.

  5. Pay for translators to translate critical legal documents that are vital to proving people’s refugee claim, and give them the best chance of winning their case.

The link to the ASRC campaign is as follows: https://www.asrc.org.au/keepthemsafe/

We will also be taking food and goods donations and will provide a list here soon as to what is most in need, AND we will have stalls and other cool things to donate your money to on the evening (there is rumour of a kissing booth ... XXX)

Please give kindly this winter, stay safe and warm and we hope to see you for the PARTY! ♥

Darcy Baylis & Ara Koufax (Live) with Laila Sakini & Statue

$15+BF/$20 ON THE DOOR. DOORS 9:00 PM

Friends-for-life and collaborators DARCY BAYLIS and ARA KOUFAX join each other for a live double-header at The Gasometer this August, with special guests STATUE and LAILA SAKINI.

Listen: Darcy Baylis: https://soundcloud.com/darcybaylis Ara Koufax: https://soundcloud.com/ara-koufax Laila Sakini: https://soundcloud.com/laila-sakini Statue: https://soundcloud.com/thisisstatue

- Following an appearance at Golden Plains in 2016, Darcy Baylis returned in February with his debut LP ‘Intimacy & Isolation’.

‘Intimacy & Isolation’ is a voluminous journey of work that expands with each listen, traversing drum & bass, UK hardcore, house and techno - all tightly wrapped within future R&B leaning song structures and Baylis’ spacious vocals. Written across a period of 12 months in transit - from bus trips in Eastern Europe, to snowy apartments in Brooklyn, friend’s couches in Sydney and freezing post-club mornings in Berlin, consider Intimacy & Isolation an auditory ‘a year in the life’. - Ara Koufax (Luke Neher & Sam Gill) have worked together since bonding in high school, introducing their new project in 2014 with ‘Brenda’: a feature of the Cut Copy-curated compilation Oceans Apart.

Hot on the heels of their 12” release on Fort Romeau’s imprint Cin Cin, the pair now return with their first live show in two years.

Energised Melbourne’s bubbling electronic music scene, Ara Koufax have released music through Downtime, Cutters Records and NYC-based label CSCN.

The duo’s work - which oscillates between experiments in house, techno and noise - has drawn attention from the likes of Tim Sweeney, Caribou’s Dan Snaith, Pitchfork and BBC Radio 1.

PAYF. Doors 5.00 PM

It's taken a little while but we have gone and done another zine. It's a special one!

In this issue, we have tried to curate works that explore themes of identity and empowerment, and the ways in which these things can both intersect and diverge. ‘New Moons' is about continuing to challenge ideas around gender and feminism through creative works that are funny, poignant, confronting, relatable and inherently different. Above all, they are important works.

Lineup (powerful ladies we love): Pjenné & Millú Jennifer Loveless Georgia Bird Asha the Masha


5pm-1am Upstairs at The Gasometer Free Entry


Eat if You're Hungry is strictly not for profit. Any profits made from the selling of our magazine, merch or artwork (TBA) sold on the night will be donated to the Domestic Violence Resource Centre. This is non negotiable for us.

'New Moons' will be available to purchase on the night. We have a pay as you feel policy - do what you have to in order to get your hands on a copy, but please try and be generous. Not to us, but an organisation supporting women in situations of family violence. http://www.dvrcv.org.au/

We also acknowledge that this event will take place on stolen land for which sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to the traditional custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation and elders, past, present and emerging.


We are very proud of everyone who has shared little bits of themselves with us. Lots of talent and tears. Now let us share it with you.

See you for a wine or few!

Rechords Singles Collection Launch.

This is it folks......the results of our blood, sweat & tears over the last 9 months. We've been keeping a relatively low key, simply working on new recordings to release and share with our fans. We've formed a great working relationship with David M. Turner Esq., Producer & Engineer at Los Bomberos Studio in Northcote, Victoria. With the assistance of Dave and the amazing writing talents of both Felix and Leo, the band have created 10 studio tracks so far (with more in the works) which we have decided to release as a 'Collection' of double sided Limited Edition 7 inch Vinyl singles. These will be released over the next 12 months, with the intention to release two new tracks at a time every 2 to 3 months.

The first two tracks hot off the production line are 'MOCKINGBIRD' and 'SEEING THINGS' which some might be familiar with from some of our recent live shows in the past. Well now you can take them home with you, both on Vinyl format as well as being available in the usual Digital Download option. Remember folks, these Vinyls will be limited to just a run of 200, so come along and get in quick if you want one!

We're putting together a big 'ol bash at one of Melbourne's most unique venues, the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood with it's optional 'opening roof' band room. We've been wanting an excuse to put on a show there and this is the perfect opportunity and we'll be inviting a Special Guest act for each Release show so save the date!!!

Smooch Into Spring with Divide & Dissolve, JDFR, Peak Twins, Smile, Sleep D & More. Tickets $15+BF EARLY BIRD. Doors 5.00 PM

Divide & Dissolve are a Texas-Geelong duo based in Melbourne have one solid ambition; to abolish white supremacy with their heavy, bone-crushing doom. JDFR is the Björk-approved solo endeavour of Iceland's Jófríður Ákadóttir. Minimalist soundscapes paired with Jófríður's voice, which has a strength that’s made to seem fragile with its vibrato, like a solid pane of glass vibrating just enough not to shatter.

PEAK TWINS. Suave soul hunk rockers. Their first live show in almost 4 years. Rebecca Sui Zhen, fresh back from the Sydney Opera House. Japanese lovers rock, 80s electro-bossanova and dubby-lounge pop. Melbourne's own Ela Stiles. Unsettling, gothic dance-pop anthems. Kandere is Wahe Kavara and Lakyn Tarai. Avant-garde liquidised trap.

SMILE's first live performance of 2017. The band that no-one asked for. Greta Now, from Sydney and she sounds bored, but only because she's more interesting than everyone else. Great Outdoors, fresh off their new LP Fake News, an album rich with mystery and surprise, and while it addresses modernity it does so with a diversity of sound and tone that offers a slice of magic track to track. It’s one of the best Australian releases of 2017 (4ZZZ). Hemm, kooky electronic pop. Sleep D, the axis of the Australian electronic subterranean, and Sanpo Disco. Disco escapism and rose-tinted balearic smooth rock.

Stella Donnelly 'Thrush Metal' Tour with RVG (Solo) & Frances Fox (UPSTAIRS)

$10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7:00 PM

Stella Donnelly was raised between Morriston, Swansea in Wales and the burbs of Quinns Rocks, Western Australia. Donnelly got her start singing Greenday songs in her Aussie high school rock band, eventually turning her interest to jazz and contemporary as an adult studying at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

At the beginning of 2017 Donnelly released her debut EP ‘Thrush Metal’ and was met with critical acclaim. The five-track release was written over the space of two years; a musical undertaking resulting in a bold and unapologetic repertoire of songs which has forged Donnelly to the forefront of the new guard of Australian songwriters.

Donnelly’s brutally honest and witty observations of people and relationships are transformed into blissful poems and lyrical punch lines on her standout debut EP ‘Thrush Metal’. Donnelly’s relatable way of writing is her lens to the world in which we live, a glimpse into what it’s like to be a millennial woman in the age of Trump, Tinder and third wave feminism.

Rachel Caddy with Dalli and Taylah Carroll (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Rachel Caddy will be celebrating the release of her debut Single 'Blue Sky Soda Stream' with a night of new original music at The Gasometer (Upstairs). A bubbly indie/folk tune about the wonders of starting a new relationship, the song was recorded under the production guidance of Chris Pickering and Benjamin McCarthy (Alex the Astronaut, Gordi) and features all the cumulative forces of her songwriting and performing talent- introducing them to the world. The track can be heard now on triple j Unearthed: https://www.triplejunearthed.com/artist/rachel-caddy. She will be joined by her remarkable band, with support from Dalli and Taylah Carroll for a gathering of original music not to be missed.

Rachel Caddy hails from the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, but is gradually infiltrating the Melbourne music scene and winning fans with her warm vocals and tender, honest songwriting. Her style expands across different genres, from plaintive acoustic guitar picking reminiscent of an indie-folk style, to writhing bass and powerful drums accompanied by spaced-out psychedelic guitar parts. Her songwriting explores both ends of the scale from delicate to powerful, and she paints the imagery in these songs vividly – drawn from life and nature, loss and small victories.

Dalli is an indie/pop songwriter , weaving electronic elements throughout his set. With rich song-writing, eyebrow raising themes and emotionally charged vocals will hit you right in the feels.

Taylah Carroll has a debut EP under her belt and another to be released in 2018. She is a compelling songstress with wholly honest and personal lyrics, an enigmatic aura and ethereal sound.

HARM MINIMISATION SAVES LIVES

Are you appalled of the governments ineffective war on drugs?

Drug testing has been a proven method to save lives, as has a Supervised Injecting Facility (SIF), which is already been used in various parts of the world, where it has has been successful.

Our aim is to raise money and awareness to fund FREE DRUG TESTING SERVICES for nightclubs and festivals all around Victoria, as well advocating for a local Supervised Injection Facility.

We cannot afford to wait for Government action, as their inaction is leading to frequent deaths.

The government is waging a campaign against recreational drug users by using militarized police force to spread fear in the wider community.

It is time to see drug use as a healthcare care issue instead of law and order issue.

THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS FAILED

Did you know drug testing is currently illegal in Victoria?

Thats why we want to engage in a peaceful protest to prevent future deaths and hospitalisation.

Come for a drink and a dance and support the cause, at everyones favourite Northside venue “The Gasometer”.

A party ten years (plus gst) in the making. Tranter has been a club staple in Melbourne for too long. You may know him as that guy who used to play Click Click or 3rd Class or Cant Say or Favela Rock, or that guy who played after Nile Rodgers at Meredith, or that guy who runs REUP and used to run Trendyfirends, or that guy who supported everyone and anyone who came through town, or even that guy who hosted Hood Pass on Triple R. The king of microgenres, the John Farnham of dance, the quattro formaggio of club tunes, the big pigdog is celebrating TEN YEARS (PLUS GST) of partying and dropping tunes. Come down to the Gaso and be prepped to dance to a mix of: THROWBACK INDIE / TOTES NEW RAP / RAD DANCE MUSICS / PARTY (but not like lame party) / BAILE FUNK, BMORE AND OTHER GENRES THAT YOU MIGHT NOT REMEMBER / KEWLZY WANKY SRS STUFF / CUTE INTERNET VIBEZ / MAYBE SOME TARP / ????

ALSO Gameboy/Gamegirl are gonna be playing a show to celebrate 10 years of Sweaty Wet/Dirty Damp. For those who don't know, GB/GG started as a joke, when a bunch of fronds thought it'd be sick to start a band listening to Spank Rock and James Chance. They went on to enlist Ben Plant aka Miami Horror to produce and DJ for the band, and magic happened. They won a Triple J Unearthed competition, went on to tour the world and release music that topped the Beatport charts and get heaps of views on youtube. But alas, it was all too good to be true, and the band broke up after 3 years. Now they're back and theyre playing the exact same show they used to play and it's as trashy and fun as you remember. They might add a new song if they cbf putting one together. Probs not tho. lol.

The General Assembly Single Launch with Howlite + Louise Terra

$12.5+BF/$15 on the door. Doors at 7.00 PM

This September, The General Assembly releases the lead single from its upcoming debut album (due late 2017).

The single, Vanishing Point, fulfils the promise of live shows that audiences have called “achingly beautiful", “divine", “so powerful and gorgeous!", "truly incredible” and “an emotional experience”.

Content-wise, it articulates the transition back to nature at death. For singer and songwriter Matt Wicking, “Lyrically, I’m particularly interested in the points where human and non-human nature connect, where the lines blur and dissolve.”

With production by D.A.Calf (Mojo Juju, Kira Puru, The Seabellies), reverb-drenched guitars create a swelling soundscape that’s undercut by distorted bass and punctuated by dynamic beats (played by Choi from Cookin’ on 3 Burners).

Support on the night comes from HOWLITE and LOUISE TERRA.

AJJ (FORMERLY ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD) ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Phoenix, Arizona garbage pop veterans AJJ (Formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad) return to Australia this September, armed with their unique collection of scuzzy punk screeds. Since touring Australia with The Smith Street Band in 2015 they’ve released their sixth album The Bible 2 out through SideOneDummy Records.

The album's mantra is placed at the centre: "No More Shame, No More Fear, No More Dread". The Bible 2 finds the band choosing intimacy over isolation, gravity over the vacuum, the stage instead of the scene. Album opener ‘Cody’s Theme’ rings like Jay Reatard distorted with Neutral Milk Hotel neuroses ("I set the mommy on fire / I set the baby on fire / not even Jesus could stop me").

Singer Sean Bonnette's narrative skills, and the band's growing nuances have never been more heartbreaking than on ‘Junkie Church’, a tender acoustic tale about affection and companionship on the lowest rung of society ("I used your rubs as ladders / and I climbed up your chest / and I jumped up and down just like a trampoline" Bonnett sings.) The bands synth, cello and bass are employed to haunting Leonard Cohen-like production ends, staccato plucks and serrated chords hiving like gnats then quickly dissolving into darkness.

Former touring partner Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band recently said “Sean might be my favourite living lyricist and we’re all lucky to have his songs in our lives. His songs get better and more polished every album but still maintain all the weird beautiful qualities that made me fall in love ten years ago”.

Playing the already announced and sold out Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong alongside At The Drive In, AJJ have announced a huge Australian tour, taking in most capital cities and a big chunk of regional areas.

Tumbleweed may disappear here and there for a while, the hiatus was nearly two years this time & it felt like it may have lasted forever, but when friends twisted our arm to pull ourselves together to do a few shows in May, we had to think about a bass player. What do you do? It is a sensitive issue, too difficult to contemplate. Jamie Cleaves has been playing around the 'Gong in bands since the early 90s, his band Shifter played many early shows with Tumbleweed and since then he’s been playing in Lenny's other band, The Pink Fits. He comes into the jam room and locks in immediately, not only his playing style but his personality as well, he just fits right into place. There is new spark, it feels good again and it sounds better than ever!

Tumbleweed play the Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith St, Collingwood on Friday November 10th. Special guests HITS and Grindhouse, tickets available through OzTix.

Niche Presents Gabriel Garzon Montano with Special Guests

Tickets $35+BF/$40 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Niche are excited to present the Australian debut of Brooklyn-born and raised singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano.

His debut album Jardín comes on the heels of three intense years of touring, writing and recording. Soon after the 2014 release of his debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, Gabriel was invited out on the road by rock legend Lenny Kravitz, as direct support concerts across Europe. The day after playing Wembley Arena, he received a call notifying him that his song "6 8" would be sampled by Drake on his full-length If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. The months following these cosigns Garzón-Montano was featured at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, and on back-to-back tours with English indie-rockers Glass Animals and Stones Throw label mate Mayer Hawthorne.

On Jardín, Gabriel Garzón-Montano sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the many- layered game that is America today, from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first- generation hustle, to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one's own mind.

A child of immigrant parents - a child of Brooklyn, NY - Garzón-Montano’s aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, a pastiche of Bach sonatas, cumbia records, and the machine gun funk that echoes to this day from behind half-rolled tints up and down Nostrand Ave. His mother, a member of the Philip Glass ensemble in the 1990’s, instilled within him a painstaking attention to detail that remains a hallmark of his process. “My mother is the reason I love music,” he says. Her rigorous classical instruction served as his creative engine as he honed his skills over the course of years in the lab, copping Stevie's changes, studying Prince's lyrics, and absorbing the beat theses of Timbaland, Dilla, and Pete Rock.

Davey emerges from his Headley Garage studio after months of solitary nocturnal pottering with crippling phengophobia, but on the plus side, a brand new LP. Entitled ‘I’m Gonna Burn Out Bright’, it’s melancholy lyrical themes of mortality and one's place in the universe are framed in joyous space-pop soundscapes. See an all-too-rare full-band headline show at the Gaso Upstairs on August 18 to celebrate record release day.

He's also bringing along his new favourite guitar pop outfit, The Girlatones, who have just released a cracking new single, ‘You're My Friend’ ahead of their upcoming LP.

Lincoln Le Fevre & The Insiders Album Launch with Chasing Ghosts & Jim Lawrie

Tickets $15+BF/$18 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Lincoln le Fevre & the Insiders will play a collection of shows this August in celebration of the release of new LP Come Undone, which arrives this Friday July 21 courtesy of Poison City Records. 

In the depths of a South Hobart winter some ten years ago, Lincoln le Fevre & the Insiders started writing songs that would soon become 2008’s debut album 30-Watt Heart. The band quickly cultivated a local and national following with le Fevre’s unique kind of bullshit-free punk-country storytelling, equally capable of airpunching singalongs and crowd-silencing emotion.
The Insiders are enjoying a warm reception to lead single Undone - a gorgeous yet gritty singalong punctuated by le Fevre's caramel vocals- which was recently added to rotation on Double J. The new album was lent some Aussie rock chops via producer Mike Deslandes but amongst the rock roots still boasts of the warmest songwriting to emerge from south of the 'Strait in years.

A triumph of Aussie storytelling, Come Undone will make for fantastic singalong fodder come August. Don't miss Lincoln le Fevre and The Insiders at the Gasometer on Friday August 18th.

A formidable live performer, Brodie managed to bash his guitar like a country singer attacks the bottle..with a million broken strings tonight just to complete the tragedy...his vocal is the aural equivalent of watching a last ditch drunk fighting for his life in a back country bar - Jake Stone

Dan Brodie is an acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter.

Since 1999, Brodie has captured audiences around the world, releasing a succession of albums (seven in total) which have been nominated for numerous awards.

His musical talents have taken him to the U.S., U.K., France, Spain and New Zealand playing such iconic venues as CBGB in New York, The Continental in Austin, The Exit/In in Nashville and The Olympia in Paris.

In 2017 Dan Brodie returns to present LOST NOT FOUND, a collection of other people’s songs, reinterpreted.

“I didn’t want to make an Album of straight up copies of the originals, I felt like that has been done to death, instead I looked for some of my favourite artists whose lyrics resonated with me, and created my own musical palette on which to present them.”

Brodie recorded the Album in his home studio in Melbourne, playing the majority of instruments including guitar, bass, synthesiser and percussion, working relentlessly to flesh out the blood and guts of the original song.

For Brodie, choosing the songs all came down to the story telling and emotional power of the lyrics,

“It all came down to the lyrics, which surprised me, as I always assumed that every so called great song could be reinterpreted, but for me that was not the case. Some songs are of their time, but to reach across time they also need a great lyric as a foundation in which to lay down your own interpretation and story ”

The results are a spectacularly dark and brooding album sparkling with both familiarity and mystery.

From the visceral Bob Dylan opener, “Standing in the doorway” to a meditative take on Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger”, through to Paul Simon’s “You can call me Al” minus the horns and upbeat cheeriness to the melancholy reworkings of Motorhead’s “Damage Case” and to the terrifying cautionary tale, “Swine” an underground grunge punk classic penned by Aussie performer, Stu Spasm, the audience is transported into the dark underbelly of Brodie’s haunting musical arrangements and presentation, leaving plenty of room for the listener to draw their own conclusions from the songs.

Brodie also had time to include three originals compositions, his own songs holding their own and standing proudly alongside the other more famous and infamous, especially in the beautiful piano ballad, “Words of a drunken man” and in the sweet waltz “I aint got nothing (if I ain’t got you)”, the delicious pedal steel tones provided by longtime collaborator and brother, Chris Brodie.

LOST NOT FOUND represents a high water mark for Brodie, coming after his 2013 diagnosis and successful treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma, a Retrospective album in 2015 and two lengthy tours of Europe both solo and with his band The Grieving Widows and finds our hero lacking none of his intensity and commitment to making music that not only survives but endures.

A night of sweet songs featuring Juice Webster, Wrocław and Hoi Palloi. A proud and fiery all lady line up that will leave you weak in tha kneez!!!

$5 on the door, set times TBA

Juice Webster is a folk/alternative rock artist from Melbourne inspired by the music of artists such as Nick Cave, Feist and Jeff Buckley. Webster’s sound has, over time, become a fusion between the raw, honest and bare elements of folk music and the dark and atmospheric characteristics of alternative rock

Wrocław is the stage name for Melbourne singer-songwriter, performer and composer Imogen Cygler. Inspired by artists such as Regina Spektor, Kate Miller-Heidke and Susanne Sundfør, Wrocław has a contemporary sound with a classic pedigree. Cygler is currently studying Interactive Composition at the Victorian College of the Arts.

Hoi Palloi are a new project featuring the compositions of Hannah McKittrick, playing with ambient texture while being heavily rooted in groove and abstract narrative. Their songs explore the comforting fluidity of seasonal change, challenge cynicism as the only path to being hip n cool and question the sincerity of commuters who read Penguin Classics.

 Gleaned from sessions at an isolated farm far north of Sydney where the band had free reign to work night and day, YEEVS second EP 'Bellow Of A Cheer' is lush and forgiving. Marking a mysterious point somewhere between anguish and joy, the record explores these two emotional states in equal measure, implying that the two aren't that far removed.

Teeth & Tongue Greatest Hurts Show with Loose Tooth, Gregor & Venetian Blinds DJs *SOLD OUT*

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Teeth & Tongue is the music project of songwriter and instrumentalist Jess Cornelius. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue has gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative ‘band-like’ affair, with long-time collaborators Marc Regueiro-McKelvie, Damian Sullivan and James Harvey. Their 2016 album ‘Give Up On Your Health’ was named 3RRR Album of the Week and Double J Feature Album, and was nominated for a J Award and The Australian Music Prize.

Now, Jess Cornelius is heading to the USA to focus on a new ‘actually solo’ project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. To say goodbye (for a while), Teeth & Tongue are throwing a farewell ‘Greatest Hurts’ party at the Gasometer on August 4th. They’ll be playing songs from all four Teeth &Tongue albums: Monobasic, Tambourine, Grids and Give Up On Your Health.

Joining them for the good times are Loose Tooth and Gregor, plus Venetian Blinds DJs (Phoebe Taylor and Liam Linney).

Kill Devil Hills with Timothy Nielson & Leah Senior

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

The Kill Devil Hills formed in 2003 as a quiet acoustic project, but that was a dumb idea and didn't last very long, quickly swelling ranks like a looming tide, until 14 years later it has settled down somewhat as 6-piece purveyor of tuneful cacophony, beautiful bastard noise, ugly but honest ballads, and gene-spliced sonic travesties....in other words, a rock band with a heart of mud and coal. Four albums, a few 7"s, a live record, several band members and a shitload of kilometres and late late nights later....Like the fabled Hydra, we are difficult, nay, impossible, to slay. The band has toured Australia, Canada, the US and most parts of Western Europe...and will continue to do so until all our hair and teeth fall out and we can only croak like toads and make music by hitting brightly coloured things with our cheap imported walking sticks. An entrancing, visceral, emotive, sensual and usually fucking loud live act, this is one of those special Australian-mutant bands that only remote continents can cough up, a species confined to islands, fever-dreams, and occasionally to strut the stage a while. Since departing band member Agent Steven Joines recently went into the witness protection programme in a remote New Zealand dictatorship, we have undertaken the various initiation rituals required to announce that Luke Dux is officially our new guitarist, welcome, and we're sorry... This run of winter shows will be the first with the new lineup, before the band commences work on a new album, and European shows later in the year.
