Adventurers Eat Vintage Skunks

  • 21st October 2008

Is anyone else becoming addicted to Born Survivor with Bear Grylls? He eats caterpillars and cuts the heads off skunks. Double hard. I’ll never be that adventurous, but I’m always up for New Adventures. Especially ones destined to fill arenas around the world. The four men of New Adventures began…

Kids Love Lies, Not the Messiah

  • 7th October 2008

My colleagues think I lie. They don’t believe I was in Casino Royale. Maybe it shows I have a problem – that despite my recent 25th I’m still just a kid. I’d hope so anyway. Kids Love Lies – and these kids also love to fuzzy guitar your ears to…

Chewing 8-bit Lips

  • 12th September 2008

“Why don’t you post about female artists?” my friend asks. Well I have actually, when I rung about the glorious Bell. Gender, two genders or no gender – I don’t care so long as their music rings true. So, the fact that holeytonal features more male artists, or bands with male leads, is…

The Crown Jewels of Australia

  • 16th August 2008

Isn’t it awful asking to hear someone’s music, only to feel like you’re bleaching your ears? To my great relief James Marple’s music was more like a gentle clean. Under the pseudonym James and The Jewellery Store, Marples weaves burlesque lined tracks with lyrics encompassing “the courtly-love of the Romantic…

Revere

  • 29th June 2008

August 2007 was a long time ago, but I still have vivid memories watching Revere at the now defunct Spitz. Severely impressed, I departed expecting Revere to make it big in 2008. But, despite being lauded by the Guardian as ‘one of the best bands you’ve never heard of’, they’re…

Lovely Bowl of Luke

  • 24th June 2008

Fear flashes across my face when the often tiresome pair of singer with acoustic guitar walk to the stage. At Insideout in Kingston, I couldn’t have been more scared when the singer introduced himself saying he’s ill and might collapse half way through his set. How I trembled. Then he…
