Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, December 26th 2015.

Horris have been kicking around the local scene since 2011, demonstrating their high energy performances that involve a heavy element of crowd participation. Their debut EP ‘You Can’t Do Anything And Life Will Disappoint You’ is a 7 song compilation of their ability to combine chaotic drums, buzzing guitars, and scratchy vocals to make a high energy record that is sure to get the heart beating.

Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Trainspotters, Brisbane, December 12th 2015. 

Starting off in 2006, this psychedelic witchgaze group have released a full length album through record label bon voyage, and accumulated a mountain of support slots for international bands like Best Coast, Earthless, and Vivian Girls. Their album ‘Hunters Moon’ was recorded over three hours in the now defunct Tribal Theatre, and their sound is a perfect balance of 60’s psychedelica and jangly 80’s pop.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 7th February 2016.
Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.

Episode 29: Amateur Childbirth; Bitch Prefect

amateurchildbirthmoneyshot

Episode 29 of Live Delay takes a slight change of pace from recent episodes. We catch a live set with Brisbane artist Amateur Childbirth as well as revist a great performance by pop band Bitch Prefect.

AMATEUR CHILDBIRTH
Recorded by Will Clarke.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at The Tribal Theatre, Brisbane in May 2013.

Amateur Childbirth is the stage name of Brisbane artist Ivan Matthew. Influenced by the work of Henry Miller, he’s an artist unafraid to delve into uncomfortable subject, illuminating everyday events with a cynical but earnest take on modern society – done all with just an acoustic guitar.

Live Delay were fortunate to be present to record Amateur Childbirth when he took the stage at Tribal Theatre back in May 2013 as part of the Guilt Retreat – a multi-disciplinary visual and musical arts series. Tune in to hear some honest live music.

BITCH PREFECT
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Harry Byrne.
Recorded at the Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane in August 2012.

Bitch Prefect are Pat Telfer, Scott O’Hara and Liam Kenny and once upon a time emerged from a sharehouse in Adelaide, but, like so many other bands do, moved to Melbourne a few years back. In 2012 they put out their debut record via bedroom suck by the name of ‘Big Time’, a well-received release that featured the deliciously depressing but wholly relatable single ‘Bad Decisions’. The band managed to make it up to Brisbane in August 2012 during the launch tour for Big Time and played 4ZZZ’s GET HAPPIER festival and we were fortunate enough to be present to get a recording.
