Adalita, River Of Snakes - on set

River Of Snakes have just released an EP called Bad Blood. recently Adam Harding directed a clip for them, shot by Adam Russ. Check out the clip here

I also discovered on the same roll of film, this shot from the making of Adalita's film clip Fool Around. Also shot and directed by Adam Harding. I've already put a couple of other pics from this film clip here


Little Ugly Girls play The Tote

LUGs are a rock'n'roll treasure. A band that was ruling the Hobart band scene when grunge was in full flight but no touring bands would visit Hobart (maybe Bikini Kill and Fugazi made it down there).. So bands like Mouth and Little Ugly Girls just did their own thing.

I hadn't seen LUGs since they supported Magic Dirt at the long-gone Punters Club, probably in the late '90s, so I was pretty freakin happy to see them play once again.

Gig of the year.

Bean on guitar.

Mindy on bass

Sloth on drums, and fronted by Linda.

For their final song of the night, Tom Lyngcoln joined the band to play a brutal version of Vinegar.

The Nation Blue support LUGS

Tom Lyngcoln from The Nation Blue organised such an awesome gig on the weekend, with Little Ugly Girls headlining. Nation Blue were main supports, and were also phenomenal! It's been a while since I've seen them, and since they've played.. and they killed it!

Hobart's own Julian Teakle joined the Nation Blue to perform a stellar version of the classic song Sonic Advisor, from Teakle's two piece band The Frustrations... giving mad props to genius taswegians such as his old bandmate Mike Harris, and many others who may not have made it across to the mainland for the show.

No Anchor @ NSC

No Anchor have been kicking arses for several years now. Their double vinyl album is killer! This is them slaying at the Northcote Social Club.


Huffy - The Marriage Bike

Earlier in the day I married Nell who was on roller-skates while I rode this bike through the "24 Drive-Up" Little White Chapel (story and photos here). While setting up camp at Zion National Park I saw an opportunity to take this pic, which is also a bit of a homage to William Eggleston's Tricycle photo.


Monument Valley

Monument Valley in Northern Arizona is in very picturesque part of the word..

In homage to that classic road photo by Robert Frank, I took this next shot.

Adalita - Fool Around film clip shoot

Adalita has a new film clip for her song Fool Around, once again shot by Adam Harding.
I snapped these while helping out with the lighting...

The clip was partially shot at JP Shilo's house. This accordion was hanging around...

Montero - instore at Polyester Records

Montero is a 6 piece band, but Ben sure knows how to rock the tambourine. New wave of loungecore anybody...?

Sebadoh - Corner Hotel

Sebadoh played 2 nights at the Corner Hotel the other week. I caught them on their second night in a jolly and relaxed mood, which made for an awesome set.

Adam Harding and Friends - Corner Hotel

Adam Harding is kicking some sweet goals lately. Releasing a fine 10" (Nothing An Arrow Wouldn't Fix), and a string of fine 7-inch records with folks such as Lou and Murph from Dinosaur Jr, members of Magic Dirt, and more.

A couple of weeks ago I caught Adam (And Friends) supporting Sebadoh at the Corner Hotel...

Lou Barlow joined Adam's gang for a ripper version of Redrum...


River Of Snakes

River of Snakes have a new EP out called Bad Blood. Go and see them.. pure rock and roll!

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
