Episode 48 takes on some challenging territory bringing you the live craziness of duo School Girl Report. We also catch up with some live tunes from Amateur Childbirth.

SCHOOL GIRL REPORT
Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at the Alliance Tavern, Brisbane, September 2013.

The duo known as School Girl Report hail from Bateman’s Bay on the south coast of New South Wales. Made up of the godhead of Samuel Miers and Daniel Oakman, they compose weird, erratic and an almost indescribable cacophony of sound. It’s often dark, perhaps industrial, but most import of all – it’s something fresh and different from the usual Live Delay stable – and hey! We EMBRACE difference here.

As far as I can see, they’ve released one tape via Do You Block called ‘Success is Dating School Girl Report’ but been a fairly active live band – playing a load of shows over the past three years up and down the east coast of Australia.

The live set we’ve got for you is from the duo’s trip up to Brisbane to play 4ZZZ’s Red Mecca night at the Alliance Tavern in Spring Hill. The band played alongside the likes of Four Door, Native Cats and a few others. You should definitely tune in.

AMATEUR CHILDBIRTH
Recorded by Will Clarke.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at The Tribal Theatre, Brisbane in May 2013.

Amateur Childbirth is the stage name of Brisbane artist Ivan Matthew. Influenced by the work of Henry Miller, he’s an artist unafraid to delve into uncomfortable subject, illuminating everyday events with a cynical but earnest take on modern society – done all with just an acoustic guitar.

Live Delay were fortunate to be present to record Amateur Childbirth when he took the stage at Tribal Theatre back in May 2013 as part of the Guilt Retreat – a multi-disciplinary visual and musical arts series. Tune in to hear some honest live music.

BITCH PREFECT
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Harry Byrne.
Recorded at the Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane in August 2012.

Bitch Prefect are Pat Telfer, Scott O’Hara and Liam Kenny and once upon a time emerged from a sharehouse in Adelaide, but, like so many other bands do, moved to Melbourne a few years back. In 2012 they put out their debut record via bedroom suck by the name of ‘Big Time’, a well-received release that featured the deliciously depressing but wholly relatable single ‘Bad Decisions’. The band managed to make it up to Brisbane in August 2012 during the launch tour for Big Time and played 4ZZZ’s GET HAPPIER festival and we were fortunate enough to be present to get a recording.
