What is happening to the Annandale? I swear its be closing down for a year now

The 'buy a brick' program helped, and now they've got enough money not only to stay open but also to start renovating. The Rule Brothers have their names painted on the front in a sort of medieval style, and they've moving around the inside to make more lounges. They've brought back the end of the month pub markets, which are great.

Unfortunately, the Sando has now gone into recievership, prompting a fight between people as to whether that's a good or a bad thing. I think it's a horrible thing, since I love old Aussie punk and rock, and even performed there a few weeks ago with Dead Rabids.

I picked up a seashell to illustrate my homelessness.
But a crab crawled out of it, making it useless.


For years I heard about how amazing the Annandale was, then I saw The Fauves there last month and it was the grimiest shithole I've ever been to. At least the Sando had a proper stage area and some kind of atmosphere to go with its constant smell of old piss. Maybe it's just because I've seen the DC3 and Pinky Beecroft there so many times that I have a certain fondness for it, but the Sando was way cooler.

By the way, Beecroft's playing The Vanguard in Newtown in a couple of weeks. I'm pretty stoked.

Blood Sweat & Beers is always fantastic, and I've discovered heaps of good bands there. Smith Street Band are playing next month, and I bought an amazing leather jacket at the markets.

Plus the Thai is decent. I do miss Cult Cinema, though it's just moved to the Mu Meson Archives.

I live across the street, so I'm a bit biased. I blame the decline of live music on dance music and hipsters who prefer places like GoodGod.

thai is great, BSB is great. lovely bills that pull no heads are poo poo.

dance music is stupid and i dont know how anyone goes anywhere to listen to it. I like some of it, but I can only listen to it in my car. going to a club and having that unimaginative bland loving background noise is just grating as poo poo and I cant stand it.

see, a band is DOING something, so i dont care that I cant talk over the top of them. some douchbag wearing too much Industrie and making non offensive beeps and boops doesnt deserve anything over 20db.

Man, I know where to go to see good music, I remember when 505 was just an apartment in Hibernian House. The problem is that the live music scene is flooded with simple, moronic music, and it encourages people to have poor taste. Last night I saw a band who sang the lyrics "How do you sleep at night, with a monkey on your back and the chip on your shoulder". What I wanted to ask them was "How do you sleep at night when you cram three tired, feeble clichés into one line of your lacklustre chorus in your lovely song?". Then they started screaming something about setting fire to a UFO or something and I just couldn't stop laughing at them. As somebody who is maturing beyond the youthful insolence and short-sightedness of punk and rock, I feel like I am not being catered to nearly enough. Not nearly enough at all. No wonder I know people in their mid-twenties who still like adolescent musical styles, they never get exposed to anything decent.

You can be smart without playing 'smart' music. I'm pretty well-read and my last song just consisted of the words 'baby' and 'rock & roll'. Punk bands like Bad Religion and the Menzingers are incredibly literate, and there are guys like Will Wagner and Isaac Graham continue that locally. Have you heard Blueline Medic's 'Newtown Rag', a song about people selling zines?

Are you a fan of Perry Keyes, Bernie Hayes, or Jamie Hutchins from Bluebottle Kiss? They're some of the best lyricists Sydney's produced but because their music is simple folk/rock they get ignored by the coolsies on one side and the mainstream on the other.

There's about 5 times as many places to see jazz and funk bands in Brisbane than there is any other particular genre of music, but most of these bands are playing covers or standards because they're mostly dead genres appreciated by old men (over 30 yos) so I'm pretty loving skeptical of this claim that live music would be more vital or better with more funk and jazz floating around, what with the fact that live original music venues seem to be commercial poison at the moment

has anyone posted any Spiderbait yet? They didn't have a huge amount of substance or novelty, so it's not surprising they devolved into a really boring standard rock schtick at some point but I was a big fan up to and including Grandslam and I've seen them live a few times, even since the awful "Tonight Alright" was released and they still did a really good show imo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIgEN8oO9y8


And here's some dumb rock music for the kids, because the demand for all-encompassing lyrical substance in rock music is a ridiculous idea mostly purported by weird old dudes into prog rock and NOTHING ELSE except for prog rock, have fun listening to nothing but the Porcupine Tree discography for the rest of your life:

As much as I loved Spiderbait, they were uneven as gently caress. Their albums were too long and it really showed on The Flight of Wally Funk. 18 tracks - a whole hour of music. I reckon it could have been boiled down to this:



36 minutes. No bullshit.

Then again, when they tried doing a short album it was Tonight Alright and that blew chunks. Kram's solo album was pretty terrible as well.

Yeah I know there's a couple of songs on tFoWF I enjoy but I've never bought it even though Spiderbait are one of the few bands I've bought every single album by without fail up to a point (I even own a copy of Tonight Alright somewhere! I don't know why!)

I remember it being a staple at a friends house smoking lots of weed Back In The Day and it being completely featureless to me until I went back to it a few years later at which point 4 on the floor and some other tracks I don't remember atm kind of came through as halfway decent but by that point I'm pretty sure TA already came out and I had pretty much given up on them making another decent album

I like a few TISM songs and I enjoy their witty lyrics and album/song names, however I cant really get my head around why they are/were popular. I get the sense its more because of notoriety from the song titles/lyrics and their stage shows, rather than being musically good?

I was first introduced to them when my Dad, named Greg, ran through a stop sign, and then that song came on the radio immediately after, and he didnt stop talking about it for about a week. He tracked down and bought the single.

Yeah they're just a blatently iconoclastic band with a lot of showmanship and a pretty good idea of how to make music; they sort of remind me a little of Frenzal in that regard. The only TISM cd I really have in rotation much any more is the Machines Against the Rage live disc that came with my copy of Machiavelli and the Four Seasons, its a good retrospective and they're a loving amazing live band.


On TISM talk, I was watching the Thunderbirds are Coming Out clip on page 2 for the first time in a while, and was that Scott from Tripod in a band called Webster? For some reason I have an album by them I pulled out of a bargin bin somewhere at some point and that kind of blew my mind a little bit.

Also every time I watch that video I'm reminded of 28 days and I smile a little inside for my 14-15 year old self

Local pop punks Milhouse got a good review in Punknews, which makes me happy: http://www.punknews.org/review/1135...oming-up-7-inch

They're always really fun. I also caught Ramshackle Army at Black Cherry this weekend; they're good Irish punk but not as good as The Rumjacks were.

I could never get TISM, and I suspect it's just a difference in culture.

Hah! Sure, why not:

Constant Mongrel - latest sensation. i don't dig them like most people do, but do respect the way they treat guitars.
http://soundcloud.com/ripsociety/co...-mongrel-reflex

Lower Plenty - their LP is one of my favorites this year. quiet music, in the vein of early Smog or RTFO Bandwagon.
http://specialawardrecords.bandcamp...um/hard-rubbish

Woolen Kits - basically an OZ version of Beat Happening.
http://woollenkits.bandcamp.com/album/maths-out-of-town

Divorced - DIY punk sounding like Mudhoney.
http://divorced.bandcamp.com/album/separation-anxiety

Kitchen's Floor - best downer rock of the last few years. their LP on Siltbreeze released last year was loving stellar.
http://kitchensfloor.bandcamp.com/

Circle Pit - glam punk. they sound better on 7''s than on albums.
http://soundcloud.com/hardlyartreco...pit-slave-honey

Dick Diver, Ooga Boogas, Boomgates - ECSR-related side projects. OOga Boogas are my favorites.

Helta Skelta - great mid-tempo hc punk. their lp was limited to, i don't know, 250 copies?
http://soundcloud.com/carpetrash/he...ta-helta-skelta

And maybe Native Cats, but they're from Tasmania and I'm not sure if they venture of their island that often.

They had a lot of pretty drat good introspective lyrics and song themes too. They get passed up a lot by being a bit "shocky" to more mainstream listeners but they have way more thought put into them then people think.

Greg! The stop sign is one of the most inspirational songs ive ever heard. Im not even kidding.. even if they were.

Meanwhile as of late ive been rather into Jack Ladder and his new band the Dreamlanders and really thought their album from last year "Hurtsville" was reaaaaaly underrated and undercharted.

It gets a lot of comparirsons to Cave, Cohen etc... but I find his voice and overall style unique enough and thoroughly enjoyable. The lyrics arent always the best though but forgivable.

Basically the kind of music Lano and Woodley would like if they had covered "Danny Boy", or anything you could imagine Michael Leunig listening to.

It seems to be a difficult thing for musicians to grasp. Venues cost a lot of money, and usually need to be Bought with a loan. It's not like a bank magically decides to gently caress over a venue because "gently caress music"
