Aquarium; Atmosfear; F.U.L.L, Swanbourne Hotel, Sunday 24 September, 1995

After a fruitful day weeding the front lawn while listening to the footy on the tranny, what better way is there to cap off a bright, sunny day than a Sunday session.

I choose … Continue reading “Rawkus; Nebula; Hateman Tribe, The Lone Star, August 4, 1995”

Tumbleweed; Spiderbait; Bodyjar, UWA Refectory, 7 July, 1995

With three of Australia’s loudest and fastest rock n’ punk bands on the bill, this was not going to be your average university cafe eve. The cavernous fast food grotto that by day is the UWA refectory, was this night transformed into a sonic sweat pit as the majority of Perth’s student skegs fogged up … Continue reading “Tumbleweed; Spiderbait; Bodyjar, UWA Refectory, 7 July, 1995”
