Eternal Soundcheck finds itself on a suburban Newcastle patio on a Friday night faced with a killer line up of bands from Sydney (Whores, None Music), Brisbane (Kitchen's Floor - no footage) and Newcastle (Alps, Bare Grillz). I'm pretty sure most people left this with a brutal hangover and the vague memory of having a good time.
Local residents Bare Grillz perform for the very first time and despite the treble on the guitar amp cutting through my squishy edible brain like an epidural into the spine, they were really enjoyable. The last song ruled and was the best but I didn't film that one so this last sentence you're reading don't have nothing useful for you.
ALPS OF NEW SOUTH WALES
An international world first australian exclusive - Alps playing guitar! and it sounds good, I'm liking this direction a lot. First 10 seconds of video are highly unprofessional, sorry gang.
A new project from Sydney's Nic De Jong (Ghosts of Television, NOTV), None Music is really good quality noise. He played in grim darkness so I've added some cosmic brightness effects.
By this time everyone was smasheddddd, mannn. This communal inebriation suited the doomed apocalyptic swamp punk of Whores nicely and resulted in a generalised exodus into the dark unreturnable abyss.
