This episode has some great performances contained within. First up is an extended set of bleeps and creeps from Sydney’s FOUR DOOR. And just when you thought it could get any better, we sneak in a song or two from Brisbane’s MARTYR PRIVATES. Outrageous value.

Four Door describe themselves in four words – techno, synths, creeps, bleeps. And I guess that’s a very accurate although simplistic description of the group’s housey weirdness.
Four Door are actually Jonathan Hochman and Matthew Hopkins, two dudes from Sydney who are fond of things electronic. You might recognise Hochman from his duties with Sydney trio, Holy Balm, whereas Hopkins plays in Naked On The Vague.
Four have played with the likes of Blank Realm, The Garbage and The Flowers and New War, but came up to Brisbane in October last year to play the Lost Race Festival at the Cooparoo Bowls Club in the city’s inner south.

Recorded at the Happy Fest, March 2012
Martyr Privates is fronted by Cameron Hawes, who people may also know from I Heart Hiroshima. The band also features Ashleigh Shipton on bass and Sam Dixon on drums, and they’re renowned around town for the fondness of noise and repetition. Is it dirge-rock? Who knows? This set comes from 4ZZZ’s Happy Fest back in March 2012.
