HEART FLEW LIKE AN ARROW (+SPAZ DRUM OUTRO)
Adam begins this set as a solo distorshow recalling his cdr release and earlier shows. Same idea, only augmented with a spastic drum outro courtesy of Andrew George Mclellan. The transition between the solo intro and band idea worked well innit. Thirteen minutes.
KINDS OF LIGHT (SERENE GUITAR DUO, BI GENDER)
Folk influenced girl boy duel guitars with an interesting mix of slide guitar and female vocals. Song based with Luke Walsh playing fluid guitar over the top. Nineteen minutes.
HOLLOW EARTH (TRAPDOOR N' FRIENDS)
First show in a while for HE. Not as percussive as usual, more freeform laptop noise n' saxo *skronk*. Repressed Snare drum awakens a beat to which certain audience members avert their foot movement to und fro. Nice and short. Seven minutes.
KITCHEN'S FLOOR (SMILEY THREE PIECE)
Set starts with Failure, the room is full and upbeat. Vocals are loud and grainy. They contrast well with the nirvana-ish bass and Julia's dish based drumming. The set continues with stand out songs like; Sparkles , which seems extended as the crowd moves to the tribal drumming. Deadshits brings the performance to a close with the audience singing along loudly. A very happy performance enjoyed with friends. Twenty one minutes.
CURED PINK RADIO (PRINCE COMMITS SUICIDE)
Total left turn performance, set starts with the same two note drone thing he's been throwing around for a while, only sped up with a backing track (theme of which the backbone of his new and ultimately more EXCITING direction). AWESOME AWESOME SET everyone went berserk. Laughed, moshed, everything. Andrew accosted the audience a a a a a a a a a. Fifteen minutes.
MARL KARX (STARLETS OF AN EXCITING NEW ERA)
Marl Karx. So many thoughts, so many emotions, a few IDEAS and one band. Set is mostly comprised of their best material plus one new song. Vibe in room is of optimism of the present and physical reaction towards this epiphany confronts audience to throw themselves around and onto ground. Very enjoyable event. Fifteen minutes.
SCRAPS (GOOD SONGWRITER)
Reluctant celebrity of her own creation. Though never villified, always admired, wished NOT to have her recorded set of this night put up on the internet for dissection. Set was full of amazingly well crafted, genius invoking, passionately beautiful introspective meanderings of everything that is LAURA HILL. Brisbane would be much less of what it is without SCRAPS. Twenty minutes.
