25 years of being consumed!
Emerging from one of the eddies in the independent undercurrent of Brisbane’s 90s music scene, the past 2.5 decades have been of ceaseless re-inventive spirit, playing with form and flux, the affection of self-parody, ever ambling a rickety bridge of modus vivendi, all bagged up with an effervescent outsider enthusiasm that has never left their skin. And now… to pound the quarter century mark with a fully blown visually rehabilitated retrospective of a show straddling a holographic hyperbole of antiquated technology, trawling the analogue back through the digital.

– Less Arty More Party
|Explosive Brisbane five-piece The Belligerents are set to take their dance frenzied, disco-pop live show on the road for a national tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their much anticipated debut EP Less Arty More Party.
In 2010, the band infused the hearts and dancing shoes of audiences; supporting acts such as Metronomy (UK), Neon Indian (USA), Breakbot (France), Yacht Club DJs, The Paper Scissors and DZ. They blew the minds of festival revellers holding their own alongside the likes of Little Red, Shout Out Louds (Sweden), Regurgitator, Miami Horror, The Jezabels, Dappled Cities, Urthboy, Parades and the John Steel Singers.
The boys have played countless mind-blowing sets on renowned stages and at house parties – occasionally invoking partial nudity. Also in the midst of this wild year, the band got creatively intimate with Brisbane producer Timeshare at Temple Street studio and recorded a deeply charismatic four track EP. Channelling inspiration from Foals, The Rapture and Talking Heads, The Belligerents have crafted an entrancing musical work of art suitable for any party.

| So once again Regurgitator had decided to hit the road for a run of shows. I have to confess that I grew up with this band; all through high school “the gurge” always made the playing list at our parties. So to see them live again was quite nostalgic for it brought back many memories of years gone by. DJ Krush had been brought along for the ride.
For the second time this week I saw DJ Krush warming up a crowd. I managed to see him on Friday at Valentino Up Late while I looked at art pieces and thought “hmmm that sounds pretty good can’t wait to hear him play his set tomorrow”.
I always found it fascinating that one person can control the energy of an entire room. The beginning of his set seemed a bit messy and you could tell by the response in the crowd. It appeared as if everyone was wondering around aimlessly trying to figure out what was being played on the stage.
|After dipping toes in the bubbling grease of contemporary dance for Rockshow in Nov 2009 they dropped the strainer in the chip fryer, frittered away on some new years festival appearances along with a few shows in the past few months. Back in their classic 3 piece mode, after approaching Rockshow in this guise, and with Seja embarking on her own solo career they recently played some stand out performances (including Seja’s last keyboard stand with them) at the Brisbane Powerhouse 10th birthday… and sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Back on the fries… they saturate the wrapper with new recordings, new tourings and a new soundtrack to cult classic Akira.

Review: Lana Harris
|Are The Boat People benefiting from all the media coverage of a certain method of arrival upon our land girt by sea? Like the refugee boats, they’ve recently taken a new direction, ending up in previously unexplored waters. The audio land about turn has definitely benefited The Boat People. Previously an Indie pop band, the new single ‘Echo Stick Guitars’ presents the four piece as Australian electro pop. The song made me feel like I was joyfully stumbling through a fluro hued platform game, the lack of depth made up for by the easy accessibility
|to a steady beat that bounces you along. Robin Waters (who penned the tune) says he came up with the chorus (hey champions, hey violins, hey echo stick guitars) by stringing together heroic sounding words in a Tasmanian gorge at night. I’m wondering which other spooky Australian landscape inspired the velodrome reference later on.
