    • They would'nt be Down and Out if they had two salt caramel Tim Tams , a tall cool glass of milk ,  and a Cherry Ripe chaser......But , if they were as happy as that , they might not have made these savage tracks.  Is a reissue in the works ?

    • There's a really solid album recently released called New Centre of the Universe from Anti Fade records..features a bunch of Geelong/Melbourne based bands..such as The Bonniwells, Bad Aches, Living Eyes, Ausmuteants and so forth.

      Loving Bad Aches atm, one of the better Melbourne bands..recently seen bits of shit for the 3rd time and as always...really great stuff.

      Get on board.

    • Hi, I'm from Brisbane.  I am involved with a garage band called The Busymen in which I manage several of their webpages and do backing vocals for.  Also teaching the lead singer Boston Bob to play organ on some of the songs they do.  

      I've been into the Brisbane garage scene since the late 90's, and also like other acts like The DangerMen, Bertie Page Clinic, Pineapples From The Dawn Of Time, The Vaginabillies, The Hits, Screamin' Stevie's Australia, and Gravel Samwidge.

      Other bands I am also involved with are a power pop act d-Wizz 2.0 at:  a co-ed act called Laissez-Fayre at: and  and an upcoming solo act mostly doing New Wave and 70's glam rock covers as well as originals written in that style.

    • Mel in Adelaide -- love garage and crusty old music -- the scuzzier the better. My partner is a hopeless 80's pop tragic -- the suffering my ears have endured! Glad to see an Oz/Nz group @ the Hideout. Newest obsession is Thee Gravemen.

    • Ahoy-hoy, better do the intro thing too, I play in a surf instrumental outfit called The Volcaniks ( We play a range of surf instrumental music but mostly early stuff and our own compositions. We are based in Victoria and gig around Melbourne and close to home (Mornington Peninsula). Reverb, twang, you know, the usual! Even though we play true early 60's surf choones we all like different music and all that.

      Anyway been lurking for a while and thought time to step up and say hi....oh yeh all the best for the festive season!

    • Castlemaine - 1.5hrs in car/train from Melbs, near Bendigo. No permanent small/mid venues here but there's a few PA's floating around that can go into a pub/hall/gallery/backyard for a gig. There's a couple of noisy local bands.
