BED WETTIN' BAD BOYS / ROYAL HEADACHE / DEAD FARMERS IN THE VALLEY MALL 29-05-10
Label Parties is a tax payer funded, Brisbane City Council sponsored (!!!!) free monthly event held in the middle of Brunswick St. Mall, each one showcasing a different Australian independant record label. This was event #3 and the label chosen was Sydney's R.I.P Society Records. I had my doubts about the show being in the valley mall right next to McDonalds and the Police Beat, but it turned out to be heaps of fun and hopefully introduced a few randoms to some good n' decent australian bands. The sound engineer deserves an honourable mention too for doing a great job.
BED WETTIN' BAD BOYS
The most solid set I've seen from Bed Wettin' Bad Boys, mostly due to the sobriety of the early slot and also playing with decent equipment and sound. Reinforced the acknowledgement of being Australia's most awesome party band.
Royal Headache's "soul influenced garage rock" (defining music is lame but that one is pretty accurate) sound works surprisingly really well in this outdoors mini-festival environment thing mostly due to Shogun's billion dollar vocals. He's one of the best frontmen of our times and the whole band put on a damn good performance.
On tour promoting their new album "Go Home", Dead Farmers are freaking good at what they do. No bullshit garage rock played with passion. Grab a beer and watch.
