On Episode 47 of Live Delay, we hear some epic live tunes from Brisbane fourpeice Nikko plus revisit the live raucous of God Bows To Math.

NIKKO
Recorded by Darragh Murray.
Mixed by Cameron Smith.
Recorded at the Beetle Bar, Brisbane, December 2012.

The frontier dark clamour of Nikko has reverberated around Brisbane for some time now. Emerging in around 2005, five schoolyard friends formed and devoted their time to writing dark lyrical masterpieces augmented by some incredible noise.

Made up of Ryan Potter, Jackson Briggs, Sam Whiting and Blair Westbrook, the band have released two excellent records, 2010’s The Warm Side and 2012’s Gold & Red amongst a host of EPs.

The feature set we’ve got for you on the latest Live Delay comes from the band’s performance at the Beetle Bar in Brisbane back in December 2012, when they played alongside the likes of The Keep On Dancins, Ghost Notes and Sucks. Make sure you tune in to get a full appreciation of the power and wonder of Nikko.

GOD BOWS TO MATH
Recorded and mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane.

Taking their name from a song by The Minutemen, Auckland’s God Bows To Math are fairly regular visitors to Australian shores. Proudly DIY, the New Zealand trio have performed their unique noise adventures at over 100 performances during their four year career. Their self-titled debut hits shelves in 2011 and they’ve recently released a new 7inch single in the lead up to their forthcoming sophomore record.

This performance from The Waiting Room in Brisbane back in April 2013 shows every angle of this exciting – and noisy – rock band.

Episode 35: DZ Deathrays; The Garbage & The Flowers

dz

This Live Delay update comes courtesy of my hotel room in Istanbul, Turkey – where street riots and clashes with authority seem to be on the agenda. Still, these incidents pale in comparison to the important events happening on Live Delay back in Australia. This is what episode 35 has in store for you lucky duckies.

DZ DEATHRAYS
Recorded and produced by FBi Radio, Sydney.

Dynamic two piece from Brisbane hit their stride in recent years, graduating from intense house party gigs to the world stage after UK tastemakers NME cast their gaze upon DZ Deathrays. Well known for their intense and legendary house party gigs and their outrageous music videos, they released the well received debut record Bloodstreams in 2012.

This live set may be slightly more sombre than the usual DZ Deathrays experience, but still profiles many of the best angles of their recent work. Provided to Live Delay by our friends at FBi Radio in Sydney, this is a live set not to be missed.

THE GARBAGE AND THE FLOWERS
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at The Bridge Club, Brisbane, August 2012.

The Garbage And The Flowers are Yuri Frusin and Helen Johnstone and they’re known for the off kilter pop music that comes out at strange angles. Originally hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo moved to Sydney about a decade ago and have remained fairly quiet since – emerging every now and then to remind fans of their esoteric loveliness at the most opportune times. I swear ‘Love Comes Slowly Now’ from their opus Eye Rind As If Beggars is one of the most beautiful songs ever penned. Tune in to here them at their marvellous best.

GBTM-6

In the latest – and greatest – episode of Live Delay, we jump across the pond to check in with New Zealand noise titans, GOD BOWS TO MATH. We also replay an excellent live set from Brisbane ‘strange’ pop band, OLD GROWTH COLA.

OLD GROWTH COLA
Recorded by Sky Kirkham.
Mixed by Henry Mills.

Allegedly Brisbane’s ‘strangest’ pop group, Old Growth Cola are a fascinating and not always predictable band who like to indulge in layer weird sounds over traditional pop melodies. It’s a recipe for fascination and Live Delay managed to catch them in their element at the 4ZZZ BaZZar in West End in mid-2012.
