Rowland S Howard - 2005

Rowland has a new album out called Pop Crimes, and so he's in the press a bit lately.
This photo I took at his home in 2005, while shooting an interview for the Sticky Carpet documentary.

Justice Yeldham - Lucas Abela

You may have seen a Justice Yeldham set, playing the sheet of glass, like he did at this year's Camp A Low Hum. I found this photo in my vault, taken at the Rob Roy hotel back in 2005.


Scum System Kill at Maggotville 2006

Scum System Kill have seemingly broke up, but one glorious night at Maggotville (which sadly closed last month) they performed a killer set, enjoyed by all in attendance. SSK, along with fellow Sydney folk, Crux are (or were) my pick of the bunch of crust-punk bands going round.


Fangs Of ...........

Fangs of Satanic Soccer Mums? Fangs of a TV Evangelist? or just plain old Fangs Of... they're a worthy band indeed. Jem and Paddo (seen here playing bass) used to be in Firewitch together, and are still in Inappropriate Tough Guy Behaviour. This is them rockin the National Hotel in Geelong


The Stabs make a film clip

On Saturday, a party full of people turned up to a much loved house and enjoyed the proceedings as The Stabs taped a film clip for their new album, Dead Wood.

Grong Grong at the tote

After many years, not playing since 1984, Adelaide band
Grong Grong have returned for god knows how long... but on Saturday night they played a ripper set at the Tote. Noise rock!
Catch them if you can, while you can.

Happy Halloween


Truth from Facts vs my new camera

This was the first time I'd come across Truth From Facts, and they were great.
Their album "2009" is really good too.

This photo was taken on the first roll of film I put through my new Trip 35 camera. I can't do my normal tricks with this camera, but it seems to have a great little lens on it. I'm sure it will get a lot of use... stay tuned!


Drumheller is Rob from East Brunswick All Girls Choir, wearing the Mother and Father t-shirt here.

He makes lovely soundscapes using slides, bows, drumsticks on his guitar and loop pedal... etc

This photo was taken up in a new cafe El Joyero, on High St Thornbury last weekend on my newly acquired 1973 Olympus Trip 35 camera!


The Dacios - part 2

So, in the past year Kim Volkman has joined The Dacios on bass. He's mighty rock, which isn't surprising, being a former member of X and The Love Addicts and all.

Linda and Kim at High-Vibes fest:

While Bean is rock solid as per usual, taken at the Monkeys Blood album launch at the Tote:


The Devastations - 2005

The Devastations were suporting The Drones one night at the Corner in 2005. I bailed them up during soundcheck and took this single photo of them.

Springtones 2009

At this year's Springtones I was packing film that was a good 5-7 years out of date. The film had been frozen for a good part of that time too... So I experimented a bit at the gig. Here are some of my results (as well as the Vivian Girls shot in previous post).
