KITTEN PARTY / CURED PINK / HEART FLEW LIKE AN ARROW / KNEE CHIN / MARL CARX AT CUBBY HOLE 30-04-10
An epic album launch and last ever show for one of Brisbane's most underrated bands Marl Carx. The lineup featured some of the most creatively progressive and exciting bands this town has to offer right now and it was awesome to see so many people enjoying it.
Armed with only a casio keyboard, floor tom, loop pedal and not even wearing shoes, Ferny Grove export Kitten Party opens the show tonight and conquers the world. If this little instrumental doesn't bring a smile to your life hardened face then shucks mister, what's wrong with ya?
Die psychotischen Industrie-und anti-gewerbelärm im Cured Pink hallt drohend über den Veranstaltungsort, wie Andrew McLellan verhandelt mit Kanälen und seine musikalischen Einflüsse mit Hilfe von einer Rolle auf Tonband aus der Hölle reel. Brutal effiziente.
HEART FLEW LIKE AN ARROW
Changing line ups like underwear (almost once a week right? "LOL"), Heart Flew Like an Arrow ditch the improv noise schtick in favour of a set of acoustically driven pop songs. Featured Nicholas from Knee Chin on drums and Lewis O'Leary from Lewis O'Leary and the Cucumbers on electric guitar.
Knee Chin are fast becoming one of Brisbane's best bands and the crowd know it. With a Flying Nun-esque yet still distinctly Brisbane sound and also featuring one of the most hilariously idiosyncratic frontmen of our time, they put on a really great show. Good job guys.
Having not played a show since June 2009 and with most of their two year existence spent wallowing within the honest yet dank confines of the Brisbane house show circuit, Marl Carx reunite for one last time and get the recognition they deserve. A thoroughly excited and drunk crowd show their respects with a celebratory MOSH as Brisbane's last nu-no wave band is put to rest.
