ALL ENCOMPASSING JJAFO
This update will chronicle weeks of time away from the internet due various circumstances.
LO-FLY HANGAR, 14/11/2008
HEART FLEW LIKE AN ARROW (FRUITION 'O INDULGENT POST ROCK VISION)
Heart flew like an arrow is OFFICIALLY one man, an Adam Rogers. Unofficially though, as of tonights performance INFACT, a full band of brisbane representatives. A/E/I/O/U, Cured pink radio and Nikko all represent here. Set followed two different keyboard keynote structures, that plodded along in a solid manner, while the three other members swelled around it. Drums were real good, though maybe giving Head man Adam for volume through his own guitar would settle perceptions on what heartflew IS and what it can be. Twenty minutes.
MARL KARX (Lost Brisbane youth)
Marl Karx perform for charity at Rosie's on a Thursday. Glen Schenau and Michaela-Sophie Chin play an amazing set before ending with a nervous breakdown. TWENTY-ONE MINUTES.
KETTLEHEADS (Progressing rock-band town brothers)
Set begins with a very active song with every instrument doing something equally WELL read 'interesting'. Song stretches out, an odessey of sorts. There were some REALLY good parts amid the set, alot of lead lines staying with myself outside of set. WATCH OUT. Twenty seven minutes.
AVID READER, 21/11/2008
SCRAPS (SECRET STAR)
Laura gets out some anger, middle-class menopausal women stand around unsure how to take the sweet beats and brutally raw honest paiiiiiin. Sing along bliss. The laughter is due to Laura taking a cardboard box as a lover ("Patsy") and hating on the indifferent/apathetic crowd, who eventually are forced to listen. Twenty minutes.
KITCHEN'S FLOOR ( INNER SUBURBAN DOOMED BRIS-BLISS)
First show with three piece lineup in a venue. Features Glen Schenau of Marl Karx on bass guitar, bass guitar itself though (+ rig) PROPERTY OF CURED PINK RADIO (THANKS)
SNAKERUN (A WEEKS WORTH 'O ANGER)
Snake Run thrashed from adelaide to brisbane again and this time played rosies to a packed crowd of which only fed to their attitude towards delivering a spectacle. It would be lazy to type Black flag down, that of which I am very. Set was really good, never let up. Ten minutes.
GLEN SCHENAU, MATT KENNEDY, JULIA NORRIS.
