DEADSHITS! TWO - PREVIEW
The second instalment of the Deadshits Festival series is happening at Woodland, Brisbane on January 28. Here's a preview of the line up we've put together and check out the facebook event for more info. Or just take my word for it that it's gonna be awesome and get your ticket here.
"With a lineup consisting of Brendan from Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Steph from Dick Diver and a rhythm section of members from Teen Archer and The Twerps, you know right away Melbourne’s BOOMGATES will be great. Their music is rich with goodtime summer vibes, listening to it makes you want to get out of the house more and generally be less of a shitty person. Debut 7” out now on R.I.P SOCIETY RECORDS."

"CIRCLE PIT are a glam/scum/rock ‘n’ roll band from Sydney, Australia. Formed in 2008 by Jack Mannix and Angela Bermuda, they are now a five person gang consisting of Harriet Hudson, Al Haddock & Jeffrey Lewis, with Owen Penglis (Straight Arrows) occasionally making six. This is their first show in Australia since returning from a 40-date, 6-week USA tour promoting their new Bruise Constellation LP, out now on Siltbreeze Records." Myspace
"Holders of the controversial title “the best band in the world”, HOLY BALM are in fact three humble young adults from Sydney’s inner suburbs. The only thing discerning these guys from your neighbours is that on weekends they happen to be the best freaking weirdo-electronic-dance¬band in the world. If you happen to like your dance music served with weird shit like butter prawns and oregano then this is for you." Myspace
"ASSASSINS 88 are a two piece from Canberra that mix the Lightning Bolt aesthetic with 60’s pop sensibilities. Their debut album Go Go Second Chance Virgin was a worldwide blog hit of 2009 and the band have only gotten higher and higher since." Myspace
"SUPER STAR equals Kieran Hegarty and Esther Edquist, who make wandering, slow space songs. They combine synthesiser and guitar to make a type of music that is rhythmic, wonky and repetitive. Self described as “floating music”, these are slow rhythms, strange sounds and simple songs." Myspace
No Super Star footage sorry, I filmed them in 2009 but it didn't work out. They are awesome good though.
"PER PURPOSE are a three piece band of Brisbane that formed early this year in Queensland, in and of other acts and that. Their debut 7” Heil Progress is out now on B.S. Records, with a tour of Aus in Jan/Feb 2011 to support. Oh pretty please." Myspace
