    • HI Will.

      My name is Andy. I moved to Melbourne from Tasmania 5 years ago. I'm currently doing honours at RMIT and searching for work, I also play in a band called High Fangs. The last couple of things I've bought have been , Miss Chain and the Broken Heels - Lie 7", The Harpoons - Faith 7", Young Governor - Virginia Creeper 7" and the new Deaf Wish 7".

      Though I might attack Off The Hip this Friday and walk away with a swag.

      thats pretty much it.

    • I recently sent this list of band recommendations to a friend in the States so I thought I'd share it here just in case any one is interested. They're all bands who are currently playing at the moment and are all from Melbourne unless otherwise mentioned. It's by no means a complete list, so please feel free to add to it. Apologies if my descriptions don't do the bands justice. The Ooga Boogas: Garage/surf band who recently played at Goner and who feature Mikey from Eddy Current, Richard from the Onyas, Leon from the Sailors, and Per from (ahem) Cloudberry Jam. The Ooga Boogas Deaf Wish: Complete and utter garage mayhem Deaf Wish The Pink Fits: fast paced bluesy garage from Wollongong. The Pink Fits Beaches: 5 piece all-girl band who play noodly guitar music that reminds me of a cross between Television and a shoe-gaze band. Beaches Shutdown 66: Killer song and killer band. Shutdown 66 The Frowning Clouds: a bunch of 16-18 year olds who love the Pretty Things and the Back from the Grave comps. The Frowning Clouds The Breadmakers: Bluesy garage featuring members of Shutdown 66. The Breadmakers The Stabs: Ben Blackwell said “They sound like Thurston Moore reviewing The Birthday Party”. I agree. The Stabs Chinese Burns: Umm...dunno how to describe them but they're good. And the drummer is awesome in every band that he's in. He hits hard, fast and precisely. Their songs are also very catchy. Chinese Burns UV Race: Again I don't have a clue how to describe them. They're on Aarght, which is a label run by 3 of the Ooga Boogas. UV Race Superwild Horses: Someone I know thinks they're a little bit "cheer-leader-y". I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. Superwild Horses The following are two bands who wear their Jesus Lizard influence in different ways. Of the two I love True Rad more. My Disco: My Disco True Radical Miracle True Radical Miracle Zond: are good. If I remember correctly, they're at the more experimental end of garage. Zond
