Guantanamo Bay City Rollers Album Launch Sydney Tour

Posted by mothereel

Sub-heading: JCP and BP split launch, Counter Attack & Peter Brock Sydney Tour

Over the hills and through the woods, starting from South Australia, booze fueled grinders, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers return to Sydney for at least 3 days of grind.  They bring fellow South Australians Peter Brock and Victoria's Counter Attack.

Guantanamo Bay City Rollers Album Launch

Friday night sees GBCR launch their album 'Dark Side Of The Goon' alongside Statesmen, the V8 power violence band, Peter Brock and Counter Attack, from Victoria.  Counter Attack is made up of members from the legendary Mass Appeal, Open Wound, Nihilistic View, Softcocks & probably more bands that should be mentioned.  This line up is filled out with some of Sydney's heroes in the form of: Chinese Burns Unit, Epics & Frank Rizzo.  Doors open at 7pm.  Gonna be a huge night!

JPC + BP split launch - venue has changed to The Roxbury

Jesus Christ Posse and Battle Pope team up to launch their split 12" LP.  Counter Attack sit this one out, or play somewhere else (I've not been told).  Ignoring the bands mentioned on the flyer the current night looks like this: Jesus Christ Posse, Battle Pope, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers, Killsong, Peter Brock. The show has been moved from The Lansdowne, due to temporary combustion issues, you can now join in the action at The Roxbury in Glebe.  It starts at 7:30pm. 

GBC at Blackwire Records

Sunday rounds out the weekend at Blackwire Records, it starts early, doors at 3pm and sees the return of Counter Attack to join the South Australians along with Sydney D-contingent: Dark Horse, Disparo! & Disintegrator.

DOWNLOAD: Drone from the Underside of the Earth compilation

Posted by mothereel
Lachlan has spent a lot of hours on this project this year. He really wanted to draw attention to some of the country's awesome fuzzy, droney, drug-addled groups, that perhaps don't get the attention they deserve - especially outside of Australia - because the reality is we can boast some of the most unique and varied slow music of any country.
Drone From The Underside Of The Earth

Drone From The Underside Of The Earth Front Cover

So Lachlan set off with intent to pull together some of his favourite artists in Australia's stoner, sludge, doom and drone scenes in order to get more people to discover great Australian underground music. But he was a little naive of quite how long it would take him!
The hard work paid off in the end. Drone form the Underside of the Earth features a selection of 26 tracks. This is a rare, eye-opening peek into Australia's rich underground music scene. At 3-and-a-half hours in length it's quite a ride, but we sincerely hope that you at least discover a few new bands as a result of this work.
Drone from the Underside of the Earth is a FREE digital compilation featuring Australia's best stoner, sludge, doom and drone bands, featuring: Space Bong, Hydromedusa, Adrift for Days, Looking Glass, In Trenches, No Anchor, Drowing Horse, Sons of the Ionian Sea, Summonus, DEAD, Futility, Clagg, Mother Eel, Log, Battle Pope,  Law Of The Tongue, Arrowhead, Moth, Shellfin, Futility, Sore, Noûs, Atolah, The Slow Death, Mother Mars, Lint and Houdini.
