Forming in the quaint gold coast suburb of southport in 2013, they’ve been building up a solid fan base with their concrete psych filled riffs and furious surf beats. So far they have four releases to their name, two EP’s and two split seven inches with another release in the pipeline.

Nana Vigilante
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at The Underdog, FEB 21 2014.

Nana Vigilante is the pairing of Lindsay Roser and Julian Saunders. They’re very BNE-centric – Lindsay raps of her fondness for the brown river city quite often. Julian’s production has reflections of 90s Aus hip-hop on some tracks while others have a more industrial noise influence. You can probably guess that they are indeed a hip-hop duo, something you don’t usually see in a Brisbane pub. OPERATION PUT BRISBANE ON THE MAP!

Curlew
Recorded by Joshua Watson
Mixed by Joshua Watson.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Feb 14 2014.

Curlew, a Brisbane based duo that are a bit reminiscent of Gareth Liddiard but some with post-rock undertones and a hint of Mum Smokes. Long songs are their thing, they played only a two-song set at The Waiting Room on February 14. Mark Zian and Callum Wheeler make up the duo. Is it anti-punk or completely punk? It’s hard to say. Mark sings of rats tails and childhood, it sounds a bit like therapy.

Snotty Babies

Mixed by Luke Walsh.
Recorded at The Greenslopes Bowls Club, Feb 22 2014.

Two dynamic women front Snotty Babies while some fellas back it up. They’re penetrating and dynamic, like their close friends, Housewives. A new generation of Sydney punk has been fermenting over the last few years and it’s only getting more agitated and energetic. Members of the group are also involved with: Mope City, Housewives, Drown Under, Beef Jerk and Julia Why.
