Beloved Melbourne Punks The Smith Street Band Are Back With An Album And Tour
The Smith Street Band, hot on the trails of hitching a ride on the Violent Soho bongxpress on a sold out jaunt about Australia, plus European and American tours, have announced a national headliner in support of their latest LP, entitled Throw Me In The River.
The tour includes a 29th of November date at their beloved home-away-from-home the Rosemount, and if any one of you enjoys anything about the Poison City inspired punk rock resurgence you should grab a ticket before they are unavailable. Support comes in the way of two international bands; New Jersey's The Front Bottoms and English comrades Apologies, I Have None. Both of these bands complement the energy and sound of the headline act, and you best get down early for these ones.
A Second Date at the Fremantle Railway Hotel Beer Garden on the 30th of november has been added!
Throw Me In The River will be unleashed on the 31st of October, and if lead single 'Surrender' is anything to go by, their third LP looks to be building on their deliciously ferocious and urgent dynamics, plus Wil Wagner's bellowing, perfectly-unperfect, voice.
Anyway, while they are sucking you in with this new track, check out the sweet pre-order bundles available at the poison city records page and get into some sweet limited vinyl goodness!
Mother!, with its meandering pace married with pulse-pounding white-knuckled radioactive fear and fury, is unlike any film I've ever seen in the last few years.
At the hands of master craftsman and director Scott McArdle, a transformation occurs: the story of the Soviet space race goes from a strong script, eloquent and thought provoking but still a mere script, into the play embodied by five superb actors and a genius sound guy at the Blue Room Theatre this month. This feat is comparable to the launching of a man into space, just as worthy of applause but far more successful.

The Love Junkies delivered another trademark high-energy, sweaty, charged set at The Bird on Friday, September 8, with New Nausea and Childsaint in support.
As well as smashing out hits from Tremelow, the admirably raucous quartet delivered signature tracks from their Gradient EP. Regardless, the band has come far over the years, with their unmistakable, frivolous sing-along songs and searing guitars, to their exploration of more striking threads.
With no more new seasons of Game of Thrones to look forward to until 2019 (!), let's consider the trajectory of all seven seasons in a way befitting a show that's often as harsh and bleak as the bitterest winter winds.
