International men & women of inactivity (well, they’ve no doubt been doing things…just not this thing) grace us again with their very welcome presence.

“…an abundance of intricate subtleties, referencing both the post-punk and no-wave without getting tied down in nostalgia or trend. It’s personal and visceral, and blatantly world class.” 




ERRANT // “…first show. two drummers. bass player from Narrow Lands. That’s all I know!”

Melbourne Punk/Shoegaze – Launching their new 10″ ‘Body Limits’.

“Straight out of Melbourne’s south-east, Halt Ever have nothing better to do than to make you stare at your shoes, pulling influences from The Jesus and Mary Chain and Guided By Voices, they have a very full sound and songwriting to back it up. Sharing members with the sonic annihilation duo; NERVE, the guys have been playing around Melbourne for the past couple years and have a few cassette releases under their belt which have a nice bedroom sound to them, definitely a band to keep an eye on.”

Ted Danson With Wolves
Noodly, pun-loving sadboys who recently finished touring their debut record ‘WWTDWWD?’. They actually have copies of it now. You can here it hear:

Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt
Jazzy math-grind superstars and the envy of most of Sydney after supporting David Liebe Hart late last year. Both of their albums are great, cop them at

Death Mountain
Sing songy riff-math from members of Lungs, Collapso, Animal Shapes, Staying at Home, The Reason and who even knows what else. Their debut record ‘Volcanic Panic’ will be out later this year, there’s a song from it on their soundcloud, chuck a listen:

Lovely Head
Ambient, noisy tunes for tuning from Vivian of No Art fame. Two great releases to her name and both were done this year. Prolific! Listen to them both at

7″ launch! First show! Potentially only show?! Massappeal worship! Guest vocals from Randy Massappeal! Other bands! Sick one!

“Damage Zone are the latest band to emerge from the ‘New Wave of Sydney Thrash’. Taking their name and much inspiration from Sydney legends Massappeal, Damage Zone are equal parts thrash, power violence and punk rock. 

Damage Zone began life as a side project for a number of Sydney’s long term contributors to the Punk / Hardcore / Thrash scene (Subversion, Disintegrator, Hostile Objects, Michael Crafter etc.). 

Their initial output is a 7 song ‘7″ Cold Dead Hands’ EP, being released on Inner City Uprising Records on 5th July 2014. All songs written and recorded in a boozy 8 hour session on 31st August 2013. D.Z contains music influences such as Massappeal, Citizens Arrest, DRI etc with a socio-political lyrical content.”
