Episode 87: Mixed Bag

Halfway
Recorded by John Robinson.
Mixed by John Robinson.
Recorded at Big Sound 2012

Halfway originally formed in 2000 shortly after John Busby, Chris Dale and Elwin Hawton moved from Rockhampton to Brisbane and met bassist Ben Johnson. Later, they added brothers Noel and Liam Fitzparick and by 2008 the group had released 2 records and picked up the Grant McLennan prize for song-writing. Recently, they’ve added ex-Go-Between John Willsteed and Luke Peacock to to bring that headcount up to 8. In February 2014 they released their latest record, Any Old Love, which received high praise from Mess + Noise, The Courier Mail and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Listen to ‘Any Old Love’ on the Halfway Bandcamp.

Recorded at Big Sound 2012

Adele Pickvance and Glenn Thompson were the rhythm section for the Go-Betweens during the ‘re-formation years’ between 2000 and 2006. In 2011 they got back together to play each other’s songs and released their first album ‘Carrington Street’ in 2012. They received some very nice reviews for their humble indie-folk record.

Check out Adele and Glenn on Facebook.

Deadshred
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Haunt, Brisbane. 4th July 2014.

Formed in Brisbane 2013, Deadshred finds members of Slug Guts, Per Purpose, Feathers and Thigh Master getting together to make noisey post-punk. In October of this year they’ll be releasing a debut cassette on Tenth Court Records. The tape is called ‘Thousand Yard Staring Competition’ and if lead single ‘Ratsakk’ is anything to go by then it’s going to rock harder than a belch in the ear.

Hear Deadshred’s debut single, Ratsakk, over at soundcloud.

NUN
Engineered by Jack Farley.
Produced by Grace K.
Originally aired on ‘Straight to You’ for PBS 106.7FM. 7th January 2013.

In April Nun’s self-titled debut album was co-released by Aarght! and Avant Records. Shadowy, brooding and drawing from a history of occultism in Victoria, the record follows on in the same vein as their first 7” released in 2012 on Nihilistic Orbs, the label for all things Dark, electronic and Australian.

Check out Nun and some tracks from their debut album over at the Aarght! Records site.
