Sunday 8th June // 3pm // All-ages

Brisbane’s own ‘gentlemen of rock’ Tape/Off are finally putting out their album. Finally.

The four dudes, each entrenched in the Brisbane DIY scene, running recording studios and record labels, putting on shows and presenting radio have finally got their shit together to put out a full length record.

The result is ‘Chipper’; an homage to the ton of do-what-feels-right independent guitar music they grew up listening to. There’s everything from Slint and Fugazi to Sandpit and Archers Of Loaf. But, as much as you can hear all of it seeping through, ‘Chipper’ is thoroughly an album about living in Brisbane in 2014 – the anxiety, the lethargy, the grasp for meaning and the sunstroke. The album includes Benjamin Thompson from The Rational Academy/Pale Earth playing Trumpet & Saxophone on ‘Pedestal Fan’, and Tom Lyngcoln from Harmony/The Nation Blue lending his voice to ‘Climates’.

Praise for ‘Pedestal Fan’

“Blown-out and weirdly catchy.” Mess and Noise ‘Video Premiere’

“rad, dingy rock music.” Whothehell.net

“Pedestal Fan” by Tape / Off is a punk rock song wrapped up in psyche rock heartbeats smothered with the charm and delivery of Slayer’s “Reign In Blood” all the while being a total exercise in modern slackerism.” Heavy and Weird

“It’s an imprecise, amateur, and most importantly, blaring tribute to the bands of old that ensured punk survived long enough for the mainstream to damn near strangle it to death.” Soundly Sounds

‘Chipper’ will be released on Vinyl/Digital on Friday June 6, 2014 on Sonic Masala Records
