UNIQUE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AT THE BOUNDARY HOTEL 16-01-10
This was a fundraiser for new art/music label Unique Beautiful Flowers. It was shut down early due to complaints from regular Boundary patrons who were a bit weirded out by it all. A damn shame because a lot of bands didn't get to play. Here's what I managed to film:
Conwae Burrell is the man behind Extrafoxx and besides being a master of the downer pop song, is a Brisbane legend. His album "The Saddest" has just been released, featuring 35 tracks of depression fuelled triumph. Check it out.
Science are a new band who haven't played many shows yet and ended this show by destroying shit (unfilmed). 2 piece bass/drums no wave/metal/post rock/whatever music. Pretty fun to watch.
Formerly Cured Pink RADIO, tonight it's a one man show starring Andrew Mclellan. I think this is where the trouble with the venue started - brutal noise mixed with psychotic performance art aint appreciated at this pub, mate.
Dissapointment Ray was a collaboration between Brisbane noise icons Joel Stern and Lloyd Barrett. Good thinkin' music.
Footage of Blank Realm might be up in the next few days. Might. Stupid camera.
