Ep 343 – Jaguar Jonze

Jaguar Jonze:

Live at Black Bear Lodge, Fortitude Valley, 21 July 2019

Jaguar Jonze is the musical guise of Brisbane creative Deena Lynch. She began her career in music recording under her first name, Deena, releasing the albums “Lone Wolf” in 2012 and “Black Cat” in 2015. In the late 2010s she began a series of creative projects across several disciplines, each with their own name: Dusky Jonze for photography, Spectator Jonze for visual art, and Jaguar Jonze for music.

After years of hard work in the industry and a string of singles, 2020 was to be a huge year for Lynch. In February she competed in the Australian selection event of the Eurovision Song Contest, dislocating a shoulder during her performance. In March she embarked on what was supposed to be a career-making promotional tour of the United States, but the COVID-19 pandemic cut short the trip almost immediately. Adding injury to insult, shortly after returning to Australia Lynch was diagnosed with COVID herself, and spent several months recovering. In April the debut Jaguar Jonze EP “Diamonds And Liquid Gold” was released as she sat in the back of an ambulance.

This set you’re about to hear was recorded in Brisbane between Lynch’s Eurovision and American adventures. She was backed on the night by Joe Fallon on guitar, Aidan Hogg on bass and Jacob Mann on drums.

Ep 317 – Timi Temple and Fight Ibis


Timi Temple – Scott Mercer

Timi Temple:

Live at Greaser, Fortitude Valley, 21 November 2019

Timi Timple is a committed DIY musician who runs his own ship and puts out a consistent string of releases from his home base in Sydney. Since 2017 he has released the “PHUZZ BOY EP” and a dozen singles, the latest of which, “Fa-Fa-Fading” came out in April.

While Timi writes, records and plays just about everything himself, he was backed on this tour by drummer Cat Hunter. A few backing tracks may also fill out the sound, but as you’ll soon hear Timi’s exuberant guitar playing is the real live deal, as is his charismatic ability to make friends with a rowdy new audience.

This set is notable in that it was the first Live Delay recorded at Fortitude Valley’s Greaser bar, which before the COVID-19 lockdown was a popular dive-style watering hole beneath the Elephant Hotel popular with local punters due to its regular live gigs and free entry.
