And So I Watch You From Afar… released their fifth studio album on October 20th, 2017. The Endless Shimmering comes after their 2015 album, Heirs, and their 2013 release and when I first heard them, All Hail Bright Futures. ASIWYFA as they will be referred to in this article, are one of my favourite go-to […]
Please enjoy a band at the top of their game. A band seemingly having fun making music, particularly rock music, something which doesn’t happen enough. It’s fantastic to see Brent Hinds sing now, he has improved so much, just as they all have vocally, with each new release. Due for release globally on the 22nd […]
Chromatic feels like a loose collection of songs. It comes off as an album without an overarching musical or narrative theme. Chromatic, to me, sits more comfortably when thought of as a collection of abstract art. A lightly curated selection of thought experiments, much in the same way a painter can start with a blank […]
Wollongong has a new festival – Very successful with punters and bands alike. More please Tom and Dave!

The fantasically funky lads from “The Sidetracked Fiasco”, who are certainly a band to get you dancing were the supports along with a local […]
The night they blew the PA. Good times.
Huge night of hardcore at the Harp. Credit to security and organisers that nobody (to my knowledge) was kicked out and to the punters as nothing was damaged apart from maybe a few people (once again to my knowledge). Hardcore gigs can often have overbearing security, but thankfully this concert was allowed to carry on […]
The State of the Music Scene forum 2011, held at 5 Crown Lane. Feauturing performances by local musicians and speakers on the topics of advocacy, venues and history of the Illawarra region with regards to music. The turnout for the evening was over 160 people and should provide a launch pad for future discussion.
Last Sunday, also known locally as “The Hangover After Hyfest” was the day that drums were tracked for the first single for my new band. I’m going to play my cards pretty close to my chest on this one so far, I can say Rob Carr is singing and at least on the first two […]
