Tiny Migrants
Recorded by Mark Ryan and SLAM Sound.
Mixed by Will Clarke.
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Brisbane. June 21st 2014.

Tiny Migrants are a self-proclaimed group of ‘space garage pirates’ who come from the planet ‘Magicdreams’, or at least that’s what they said in one surprisingly candid interview with FBi Radio. Don’t let the act fool you, they’re not a prog-rock band; they just don’t take it very seriously. Making music that is. What they do create can be filed-under psych influenced garage-pop or to take a leaf out of their book I’ll say, “They’re the sound of The Kinks getting a Chinese burn while plunging into the depths of a dunk machine.” All of the members are active in other groups in Brisbane such as Woodboot , and a few make up the ranks of Brisbane’s favourite garage rock band that can’t fit in a Maxi Taxi – Velociraptor.

Per Purpose
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane. April 25th 2014.

Per Purpose have come a long way since supporting Beaches back in June, 2013, we brought you that performance in episode 39 of Live Delay. Since then the group have released a cassingle, a debut LP and a follow-up single on a new Sydney label called Béchamel Records. They’re a band that work very quickly. Their cycle of ‘write, perform, record, discard and repeat’ moves at near break-neck speeds. You won’t be hearing any songs from that debut LP from October 2013 that’s for sure. Singer Glen Scheanu proclaims that the new set is the new album, the vision of which is already clear in his mind. Matt Ford has taken over drum duties for the band after the departure of Bedroom Suck Records main-man Joe Alexander.

Listen to Per Purpose’s most recent release ‘Bathing Suit Sand’ on the Béchamel Records Bandcamp.

Episode 39: Per Purpose; Mere Women


Prick those ears folks, Live Delay Episode 39 is nigh and it’s a night of outstanding rocking and rolling featuring the manic chainsaw rock of PER PURPOSE and the psych pop of MERE WOMEN.

Recorded by Darragh Murray
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at the Black Bear Lodge, 2013.

Live Delay is proud to have finally procured a quality live recording of Brisbane force of nature, Per Purpose. The four (sometimes five) piece have been tearing at eardrums for a few years now and are on the precipice of releasing their debut long player – one that will be something to be reckoned with indeed if this live set is anything to go by.

Composed of Glen Schenau, Mitchell Perkins, Harry Byrne, Joe Alexander and occasionally Josh Watson, this recording comes from their blistering support set when compatriots Beaches visited the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane. With some overlap with early Drones material, Per Purpose have purpose and this is one of the best sets you’re likely to here on Live Delay this year.

Graciously shared with Live Delay.

Mere Women are Katrina Byrne, Amy Wilson and Flyn McKinnirery, a talented trio from Marrickville, Sydney. They’ve been kicking aorund the scene for a few years now and brought out the well received OLD LIFE in mid-2012 – a noisy, laconic adventures of post-punk with some gothic undertones thrown in for good measure. They’ve got an interesting sound and make for an excellent live group and you should definitely tune in to check out this set from their 2012 Old Life record launch in Sydney. Our good friends FBi radio were on hand to capture the set and it’s via them that we can bring it to your eardrums!
