Tom Lyngcoln

Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Brisbane, 18th August 2018

Our first set is by Tom Lyngcoln and as a punter at this festival was one of my most anticipated acts of the line up. Tom Lyngcoln is a stalwart of the Australian music scene as a member of the beloved Nation Blue, Pale Heads and the phenomenal Harmony.  

A veteran of being in bands, a solo artist is something that Tom never intended to be but came out of necessity. He tells the story that he was performing solo shows to keep sharp and was performing songs from his bands. They didn’t really suit a solo performance so he wrote songs to suit a solo act which would then become his debut album Doming Home. An album that is so raw and natural you can hear him walk around the room, its a record that feels alive and his live performance is truly special.

Just a man and a guitar, creating walls of noise before snapping into crushing silence.

Next up we have a blistering set by Brisbane legends Eyes Ninety, who are a band that formed in 2014 and released their debut album, aptly titled ‘Eyes Ninety’, in 2015 through Swashbuckling Hobo Records.

They have been playing around the Brisbane scene and spreading their punk riffs and energetic live set damn everywhere. The group is comprised of Tom, Ben, Rick & Xavier, and they will hit you with waves of garage punk that force you to be scraped off the floor. They finally unleashed the awaited second release in 2018 and that album was the fantastic ‘Glaucoma Chameleon’.

It sounds like Eyes Ninety, but there is still a bit of difference that obviously sits well with the band as they grow and boy is it a fun ride.

Recorded at Crowbar, Brisbane 10th of June 2016.

Featuring members from almost every prominent Brisbane punk band through the 2000’s, Grieg features Alex Gillies; member of No Anchor and A Savage God on drums, Tamara Dawn from Hits and Gazoonga Attack on Bass, John Mercer from Undead Apes and Dick Nasty on guitar, and Lance Sinclair on vocals. Together they bring big noise, big riffs, and a heaviness that could only be achieved by a band comprised of this many stellar Brisbane artists. They have released one album so far, titled ‘Retaliate First’, and is available digitally or on vinyl through their Bandcamp page.

Kicking it around Brisbane since the early 2000’s, Eat Laser Scumbag! released their first EP in 2005 and have been sparingly playing their brand of punk rock all over the place since. Like most Brisbane bands, Eat Laser Scumbag! is made up of members who all play in another band. In this case, the two guitarists Ashley Timms and Nathan Gygar play in Nova Scotia, bassist Adam Scott plays in Undead Apes (who we have previously featured in Episode 178), and finally Xavier Poropat on drums from Eyes Ninety (who we also previously featured in Episode 180). Their latest EP ‘Chakras Aligned’ was released in September 2014 and is available online through their Bandcamp. This set you are about to hear is their first show on Australian soil in four years.

EP 180: Eyes Ninety; A Country Practice

Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, 27th of May 2016.

Kicking it off in 2014, Eyes Ninety make erratic garage that dabbles into punk, post-punk and classic Australian rock ‘n’ roll. Their members are a part of a few renowned Brisbane bands such as The Standing 8 Counts, Chinese Burns and Eat Laser Scumbag!, however Eyes Ninety are their own beast. With furious bass and guitar lines backed by upbeat drumming that keeps the pace, vocalist Tom Beaumont shouts and screams with various levels of energy while the second guitar detaches itself almost completely from the rest of the group and carves its own path which makes you uncomfortably unsure if the band is either about to erupt into chaos or dwindle down into nothingness. It’s this feeling of uncertainty that creates such a bubbling atmosphere of energy that makes Eyes Ninety the great band that they are.  In 2015, they released their self-titled debut album through Swashbuckling Hobo Records, which features 9 tracks of sharp lo-fi production that suits the band’s aesthetics to a ‘T’.

A Country Practice is a family band playing songs that draw on their childhood growing up in the rural Lockyer Valley. Stories of droughts, cattle farming and summer storms feature throughout.  The three piece of husband-wife Joel & Kelly and brother Andrew, wrap their simple nylon string guitar ballads in hazy broken electronic beats and melodies and the sort of vocal harmonies you’d expect from family members.  A Country Practice was formed out of the ashes of Ambitious Lovers, which were featured in Episode 115 of Live Delay.
