- Australian Indie Garage Rock Spotify Playlist (Safe For Work)
To share some love to my mates doing it rough at the moment in the arts and to celebrate AusMusic T-Shirt Day I've put together a safe for work playlist of some of my favourite songs. Most of these artists are either unsigned or are a part of a local label which is self-invested so purchasing merchandise or records from their Bandcamp accounts is the best way to support them while we can't get to shows. All of the artists in this playlist play very often at local venues like The Tote for $10-$30 so when the world gets back to normal they'll surely be back at it! Enjoy!

- Horace Bones haunts The B.East March 29th 2018
After a particularly memorable incident involving Private Function's Chris Penne and two bottles of mustard & ketchup earlier in the month, everyone was now completely aware that wild live bands were more than welcome at The B.East. The next highly anticipated show was the B.East debut of Horace Bones, who had spent the early parts of the year writing new material that one go on to form the bulk of their 2019 debut album Terra. At this time however the songs were quite different (particularly lyrically) and this played very well into the bands mystique, with songs that were clearly very complex & poetic delivered so harshly that without a recorded release it would be impossible to decipher their meaning. Joining them would be Fitzroy's prodigal son and bartending acrobat Spike The River, (who to my knowledge can be the first performer credited with diving off the bar into the audience at The B.East) as well as Bad Batch, (if you never got to see them do yourself a favor and listen to their EP Going Nowhere on spotify). This was one of the first times I attempted editing footage i'd recorded from a show, here's a link to Horace Bone's unreleased song 'Riot': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZRPXweP22g And here's Chris attempting to digest an entire bottle of mustard through his face: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DVgw4atqdI Spike The River Bad Batch Horace Bones
- The Coin Toss Tour San Remo March 16th 2018
The Coin Toss Tour was a national tour featuring Dumb Punts, Pist Idiots, Mini Skirt & Charging Stallion. The tour was named as such as every gig the bands would do a series of coin flips to determine who played in which order at every show. This led to a whole tour of uniquely fun gigs with a different headliner every night. Mini Skirt were unable to make it to all of the Melbourne dates so who could fill in but Amyl & The Sniffers, fresh off their appearance at Jerkfest IV. Also joining the roster were Tony Dork, who had already played with Pist Idiots & Mini Skirt for their 'Hot' tour back in December & were more than happy to travel out. March 16th 2018 was the first time we rented a car and ventured out beyond Melbourne to see a regional show. We got to San Remo early and drove on through to Philip Island & stopped for lunch in Cowes. We shared an Airbnb with Tony Dork and Jack spent our pre-drinks trying to do a kickflip (which funnily enough almost broke HIS ankle). And of course you can't visit San Remo without seeing the Vietnam veterans museum As anyone who saw a show from this tour will tell you every band was phenomenal and by the end of the run everyone had played atleast one runaway spectacular set. It's hard to pick a favorite for this one but this was one of those times where you got to see a snapshot of the live show monster that Amyl would become. You can have a look at them play through 'Cup of Destiny' that would be released a few weeks later here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6y9z14MJto Tony Dork Charging Stallion Pist Idiots Dumb Punts Amyl & The Sniffers
