Total Control
Recorded by Ben Moore.
Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Mastered by Mikey Young
Recorded at The Standard in Sydney on the 5th of February, 2014.

Total Control are a post-punk/electronic quintet, and have been active since 2008. On record, namely 2011’s ‘Henge Beat’ and 2014’s ‘Typical System’, their electronic sound is much more obvious, whereas their live presence is stripped of devices and become a raw punk band with urgency in their vains. Devo & Orchestral Manoeuvers In The Dark have been mentioned as influences, and while that’s definitely on show, there’s also a heavy debt to the psych/krautrock sounds of the 70’s.

Many thanks to Harvey O’Sullivan from FBi Radio’s Live Feed for his assistance.

Dead Farmers
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic .
Recorded at the Greenslopes Bowls Club on the 14th of March, 2015.

Hailing from Sydney, garage-punkers Dead Farmers sprouted up through the cracks of Australia’s largest city’s underbelly and began rocking audiences in the mid-2000’s. Very reminiscent of the Detroit rock scene that produced bands such as The Stooges and MC5, they self-recorded their latest album ‘Wasteland’ straight onto half-inch tape free of reverb and post-recording effects, and sent it off to mastering to be improved upon.
