TINY SPIDERS (Qld/12″ Launch) + LOW LIFE + MOB + F’TANG

*MOB replacing RAW PRAWN.

“When you think of Brisbane, what do you think? Excessive conservatism? Crushing humidity? Too many hours in a car? Bands with a half dozen too many members? Ok ok, forget about Brisbane. Tiny Spiders are a two-piece rock band being pop being noise. The fact that they hail from the east coast’s northern capital is neither here nor (way up) there. The important thing is that this July they’re coming down to the southern cities to launch their debut 12” record. It’s a record filled with brutal guitar fuzz and spazzy drums brushing up against (kind of) smooth vocal melodies. It’s Lightning Bolt covering ABBA. 14 songs, 34minutes, plenty of volume.”

DEAD (Vic) / Battle Pope / No Art / Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt / 31.08.12

DEAD (Vic) + BATTLE POPE + NO ART + FAT GUY WEARS MYSTIC WOLF SHIRT

DEAD! Hooray!

“Jem and Jace are DEAD. They are awesome. Most bands are awful but not DEAD, they’re awesome. It’s spelled in capitals ‘cos there are only four letters and you have to make them count.

There are 8,000,000 bands in the world and if you managed to discover this one in that great big pile of mediocrity you have done very well for yourself. Read on to discover just how well.

Most people don’t “get” DEAD, but then most people are idiots. Actually, most people would not even have a clue who DEAD are. But even if they did, they would not “get it.” What a bunch of losers man! They are missing out.

Jem and Jace both also play together in Fangs of… who are even less popular than DEAD. Jem is also in Fire Witch and Inappropriate Tough Guy Behaviour who have cred in some circles. But it’s too early to tell if any of that cred will carry over. It’s a funny old business.

In September 2010 DEAD was born. There is a dad joke somewhere in that statement, feel free to make it. Even though they have a lot of other bands and things to do Jem and Jace wanted to play more music. So they wrote some songs, booked a tour for Nov/Dec, played a heap of shows, recorded and released an album, toured  SE Asia and USA, and the East Coast of Australia.

It’s 2012 and you don’t need to be told what the band sound like. The internet can tell you that. You don’t even have to buy the record when it comes out. You can just download it and say that you own it. The important thing is that they look incredible.

DEAD make their own merch and run their own label (WeEmptyRooms). You can get specially made DEAD T-shirts, hoodies, patches, tea towels, undies, pillow cases and even more. Because you’re not a real punk band unless you got stuff to sell with your name on it.

And DEAD are TOTALLY a punk band!

DEAD will never be popular. No one is losing sleep over this and if they are, they are idiots. DEAD won’t stop ‘cos being in DEAD is too much fun. Go and see them live or buy a record if you yearn for a life changing experience.”
