EGOISM:

Live at The Triffid, Newstead, 21 December 2019

EGOISM are a band from Sydney’s inner west centered around the songwriting partnership of childhood friends Scout Eastment and Olive Rush. They first began releasing shoegaze-tinged tracks in 2015 and the following year put out their debut EP, “It’s Wearing Off”. In 2018 the band re-emerged with a new, poppier sound with single “Sorry”. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength with a slew of catchy singles, the latest being “Here’s The Thing”, released in September 2020.

Cigány Weaver:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 29 November 2019

Brisbane-based Romani-style jazz ensemble Cigány Weaver have been working hard to win over audiences with their spectacular live shows for several years now, including spots at the Woodford Folk Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and MONA’s Dark Mofo.

The band’s debut, self-titled EP was released in 2016 and was a live recording of interpretations of song from the history of film. Their debut album from 2019, also self-titled, showcased both original material and a few older standards.

While normally a six-piece, this set recorded at Yonder Festival’s Wunderbar Stage featured the band as a slightly stripped-down four-piece, with Jo Davies on vocals, Gareth Mewes on violin and Rory Dollard and Conor McDonald on guitars.

This set was mixed by an audio production student from the Queensland University of Technology as part of their course. We’d like to give special thanks to Yanto Browning and John Willsteed at QUT for facilitating this collaboration.

Recorded at The Triffid, Newstead, 9 March 2019

Olympia is the project of Melbourne-based musician Olivia Bartley. Her self-titled debut EP came out in 2013 and his since been followed by two full-length albums: 2016’s Self Talk and this year’s Flamingo. Self Talk was nominated for the ARIA Award for Breakthrough Artist as well as the Australian Music Prize, while Flamingo has seen Olympia tour consistently throughout 2019 off the back of killer singles Star City, Shoot To Forget and Hounds. One such gig was captured by the Live Delay team earlier this year while Olympia was supporting Julia Jacklin.

Hound:

Recorded by Nell Forster
Mixed by Conner McDonald
Recorded at The Bearded Lady, West End, 23 March 2019

Formed by Chris Cox, Lucas Hopgood, Tom Butler and Anthony Gray, Hound released their first demo, F-Off and Rinse, in 2013, followed shortly by the professionally-recorded EP Concrete in 2014. The band have kept up a fairly consistent string of releases since then, including debut album Dying In The Sun in 2015, EP MiniVolume in 2016, album Drown With The Lot in 2017 and most recently the EP Shady Valentine in 2019.

The excerpts you’re about to hear from the set recorded by Live Delay earlier this year are from what might turn out to be Hound’s final gig, with the band members describing their future as being “Up in the air”. If that turns out to be the case, they have certainly left behind a very respectable body of work and and reputation as an excellent live act.

Due to prior arrangement with the artist/management, we are unable to provide this episode for streaming.

Ep 276 – RAZAR

RAZAR:

Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 14th October 2018.

RAZAR started out in 1976 out of Mt Gravatt a suburb just outside of Brisbane. Teens at the time, two brothers Greg Wackley and Robert Wackley, making up the rhythm section on drums and bass respectively, joined up with Marty Burke on vocals and Steven Mee on guitar.

A garage band, they played their first gig at the Atcherley Hotel and then played regularly the few venues that were around at the time. As punks at punk gigs, the band regularly saw the over-reaction and violence from police which ended up seeing them create the iconic track ‘Task Force’.

As one of the most iconic members of this scene at the time, they reformed for White Chairs Volume Two to a significant fan base remembering their youth and a whole new generation of fans who never thought they’d get the chance to see such a band.

Recorded Live at The Triffid on the 14th of October 2018 at Return to White Chairs Volume Two, this is RAZAR.

Return to White Chairs Vol. 2:

Mixed by Greg Jard.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 14th October 2018.

For this week’s episode of Live Delay, we are in for a real treat as we get to deliver a smorgasbord of music from a really special event. In Episode 275 we are privileged to showcase artists that played at the Return to White Chairs Volume Two. Return to White Chairs is a reunion event that celebrates the music and history between 1977 and 1987. A time in Brisbane where the counter culture of Punk was such an intense and bonded community fighting against the corrupt Bjeike Petersen regime.

Conservatism gripped the Brisbane city and tried so hard to squeeze the life out of any opposition or form of cultural expression during this period. The bond between the musicians in the punk scene was so strong as they fought so hard to keep a scene alive and in doing so created some of the worlds most influential bands.

Return to White Chairs as it’s website celebrates this time, the music, and the many people that loved and played in the scene.

Playing at The Triffid on the 14th of October 2018 was a range of different bands. From bands around at the time like The Horny Toads, Scrap Metal, Public Execution, The 5 Hanks, Vacant Rooms, The Cultured Few, and The Chrysalids, to bands that are somewhat more recent but featured players from the era like Dr Bombay, The Dangerous Folk, and The Bollocks.

The night was headlined by two incredible bands, Ipswich legends Toy Watches and the one of the first punk bands ever RAZAR.

This episode is giving you a little taste of the bands that played on that night, and for others, a trip down memory lane.

The Aints

Recorded by Reuben Aptroot & Kelly Schinkel
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 27th October 2018

The Aints were formed by Ed Kuepper who formed the legendary The Saints in Brisbane which became one of the world’s first punk bands.

There are two iterations of The Aints, they first popped up on the scene in the early 90’s and released a few EP’s before peetering out in ‘94 after an album was recorded but never released.

The Aints as a name is from the old days when an S had worn off the kick drum which originally said The Saints.

For this recent stint in the music world, Kuepper recruited the best of the best to formulate a band which would tear through The Saints back catalogue as well as their own material.

Kuepper recruited Peter Oxley from The Sunnyboys on bass, Paul Larsen Loughead from The Celibate Rifles and The New Christs on the drums, Alister Spence on piano and Eamon Dilworth arranging the brass and on trumpet.

The Aints play high feedback loud intense music with the brass section just bringing the energy up a whole new level.

It’s absolute classics that you have loved your whole life as well as new gems that this tight outfit have produced themselves.

The Aints in 2018 released an album called The Church of Simultaneous Existence which if you stay tuned to Live Delay you might just hear sometime soon.

This set features classics from The Saints but without a doubt The Aints are their own band with their own energy.

Eliza And The Delusionals

Recorded by Reuben Aptroot

Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 17th August 2018

First off lets get stuck into an amazing set by Eliza and The Delusionals. This set was recorded at The Triffid when the Gold Coast band were supporting Luca Brasi on their tour (which if you’re interested was Episode 264 of Live Delay). Eliza and The Delusionals started in 2015 and have been playing consistently all over the country at some of the biggest venues and festivals we have to offer. They are an enigmatic live act. They deliver their powerful indie rock sound with big guitar riffs and lead singer Eliza entices with a strong and engaging voice. They have released various singles and an EP in 2017 called ‘The Deeper End’. They have really refined their live performance and this set is one that can’t be missed.

 

Bad Bangers

Recorded at Sonic Masala Festival, Brisbane, 18th August 2018

Bad Bangers are a wicked punk duo combining the forces of vocalist and guitarist Alex and Vocalist and drummer Joe. They have been playing stages delivering their punk energy and winning crowds over with their good vibes and catchy tunes. They released their first EP in 2016 and have released singles with the latest recording being 2018s Hooray For Everything. They bring the energy, with large distorted guitar riffs and fast crashing drum fills. I was lucky enough to witness this set filled with big tracks from their EPs at Sonic Masala Festival and can attest to how tight their set was.

Luca Brasi

Recorded & Mixed by Reuben Aptroot
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 17th August 2018

Luca Brasi are one of Australia’s finest live acts. They are a complete juggernaut of energy and are no holds barred on a stage. They formed in 2009 in St Helens in Tasmania named after the ruthless killer in The Godfather and have translated that energy into their hard rock sound.

They have released four albums in their time as a band from the first being 2011’s ‘Extended Family’, then in 2014 with ‘By A Thread’, 2016’s ‘If This Is All We’re Going To Be’ which reached 18 on the ARIA charts, and as recently as June of 2018 with the record ‘Stay’, which beat out 2016’s effort reaching No. 10.

They have earned their reputation as a formidable live act and they command stages around the country as well as big festival spots. This show was just after the release of their album and was a sold out show to a packed audience at The Triffid.
