When did you first start going to see local perth bands?
Many a year ago, i used to go watch all the metal bands at the Grosvenor (Allegiance,Rawkus, SFD, infected etc)
Do you buy many local cds?
Yeah if a band i like releases a CD i’ll buy it for sure, occasionally i’ll buy one just on word of mouth
Are you involved in the music scene besides going to gigs?
No, just a very keen punter, sometimes groupie.
Which venues do you like and why?
I like the hydey because the people are ‘real’ no one cares what you wear,look like, how you behave etc, it has cheap beer, and no idiot security and its free. I also like the Amps as its a cool place to hang out and meet friends, thats pretty much it
Who are you favourite local bands and why?
This could be a long one, i’ll try for the condensed version:
Homicides because theyre fucken funny and entertaining to watch plus i love the music,.
The volcanics – they just have great rock songs and John’s a great frontman and singer.
Kill devil hills – cause the mix blues,folk and country all together in a dark brew….just love the music and seing what instrument they’ll add to the lineup next.
M16s – gotta love a man who can play guitar like Kenny,definately underated (as are all perth bands) .
Schvendes – love Racheals voice and again the dark lyrics and mood,
New invincibles – just fantastic live great garagey surfy songs (thats a really bad description)
Also used to really like looweeze de’ath but it seems she’s disappeared?? Very funny girl with great acoustic songs. Ok thats the condensed version.
What do you drink at gigs?
Beer, anything else is too damn expensive (but then again so is beer at the Amps).
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on stage?
Everytime i see the Homicides it cracks me up, love them, oh and there was a nude guy on stage at the last mach pelican gig, that was pretty funny
Are there any new local bands you have discovered lately?
The ‘newest’ is probably at least 6 months ago when i came across Soviet Valves, oh no i lie, i discovered Schvendes about 3 months ago, but theyre not really new
