EP 150: CLEVER; The Stress of Leisure


Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Josh Watson
Recorded at The Haunt, Brisbane, July 4th 2015.

Starting off in October 2014, CLEVER have wasted no time taking their chaotic noise punk shows up and down the east coast playing in Nambour, Brisbane, Lismore, Newcastle, and Sydney as well as scoring a ton of support slots for local and international artists. If they keep things up at this pace, you can expect to hear a lot more of them.

The Stress of Leisure

Recorded by Darragh Murray.
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Beetle Bar, Brisbane, 20th September 2013.

Formed in 2005 by vocalist and guitarist Ian Powne, and self described as ‘sub tropical post punk pop crossed with art school indie’ the stress of leisure has remained 100% independent and released a total of 5 albums all through their own record label over their mammoth career. Although the band members have not remained consistent, The Stress of Leisure continues to produce great songs with great choruses.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 29th January 2016.
