Where is Matt and Michael Crafter?

Posted by Lachlan

Those were the days....I find myself violently roused from my slumber by a hysterical scream "WHERE'S MATT?? WHERE'S MATT??!?!". My throat is hoarse and I am drenched in a cold sweat. I look across the room into the mirror to find a pale, drawn and gaunt face that used to be mine, and I now know that the scream was my own.

Just where is Matt? My long-time partner in Australian grind crime has jumped the country to South East Asia to tour with his positive powerviolence/grind duo Michael Crafter. And while nothing will quite replace the smell of his hair, and his cautious, creeping smile, I rest a little easier knowing I can follow his (and drummer Dave Bates') daily adventures on the Michael Crafter blog.

Be sure to check it out and get the heaps party scoop on the fetid underground grind scene in South East Asia:

We'll be welcoming our departed grindpals home on Saturday July 16 in Melbourne, as Party Vibez, Michael Crafter, Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt, Battle Pope and Lazerface tear up Yah Yahs nightclub.
