Sex On Toast
Recorded & Mixed by John Robinson
Recorded at Woodford Folk Festival, 27th December, 2014.

Sex On Toast are a funked up lot, specialising in overblown choreography and onstage antics, these new-jack swingers feel ripped straight from another era. Last month saw the release of their brand new single, “Oh Loretta”, a throwback track that could have been recorded in the 70’s, but is nevertheless yesterday fresh.

Equal parts righteous and ridiculous, Sex On Toast are known for their raucous and engaging live shows. These Festival regulars, have performed on numerous stages across Australia, from Melbourne International Jazz Festival and Adelaide Fringe, to Apollo Bay Music Festival and Woodford Folk where this set was recorded. Live from the Bazaar stage and running through the new year, this is Sex On Toast.

The Eagle Junction
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at 4ZZZ Car Park on the 18th of April, 2015.

Local band The Eagle Junction are hard at work at the the moment, touring their particular brand of blues pop, kitsch-rock around Australia. After taking home the prize for Best Original Song at this year’s Qube Effect with their track, Your Face Ruins My Day, the band have gone on to release their debut LP. An understated, self-titled affair, The Eagle Junction LP is like an RSVP to the future, an affirmation of the band’s inevitable success.

4ZZZ were lucky enough to have The Eagle Junction play a set right here at the station’s luxurious carpark stage. The set was recorded on April 18th of this year for Street Soundzzz, as part of 4ZZZ’s youth week celebrations.

Halfway

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.

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.

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.
