Dog Name:

Live at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, 17 August 2019

Canberra band Dog Name formed as the solo project of singer/guitarist Eadie Newman, who had previously played in a host of other acts including Bacon Cakes, Passive Smoke, Eadie and the Doodles and Mind Blanks. Having released EPs in 2016 and 2017, the band are currently putting the pieces together for their first album. They journeyed north to Brisbane last year for Sonic Masala Fest at the Greenslopes Bowls Club even though – as you will hear towards the end of this set – the footy was on.

Wonderfuls:

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 17 May 2019

Wonderfuls were first formed in 2004 when cousins Robert Vagg and Danny McGirr moved to Brisbane and started making art and music together. With Vagg chiefly on vocals and McGirr responsible for instrumentation, the duo spent years making a truckload of experimental recordings, though of this early period only four songs were ever released, as the 2011 7″ “PissFist” on Negative Guest List Records.

Subsequent releases stepped away from their initial raw sound, most recently on 2018 album “Voices Like Rain”. It was from this album that most of the songs from this set were drawn.

Episode 44: Tarcar; Wonderfuls

Screen shot 2013-11-02 at 11.29.07 AM

In episode 44 we take in the dreamy live weirdness of new Melbourne duo TARCAR. We also reboot a classic live set from Brisbane’s WONDERFULS

TARCAR
Recorded live at The Gasometer Hotel

Our feature set today features the dreamy noise of Melbourne duo TARCAR.

Tarcar feature the music of Tarquin Manek and Carla Dal Forno, who also play in bands Bum Creek and Mole House respectively. They weave some kind of space pop using a drum machine amongst many other instruments. I’ve noted it’s pretty hard to find out info online about the band – they’re that new.

This set was recorded at the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood Victoria back in June this year where the group played the Greg Boring LP launch. Other bands on the bill included the aforementioned Greg Boring , Gurner, and Free Choice Duo.

Find out more about Tarcar.

Have a listen to Tarcar live over at Weirdo with a Dictaphone.

WONDERFULS
Recorded and mixed by Will Clark.
Recorded at The Tribal Theatre, Brisbane.

Wonderfuls record Salty Town was one of the best Brisbane releases of the 2012. An eccentric duo of Robert Vagg and Danny McGirr with a skill for detailing the ravaging nature of the everyday. Live Delay were lucky to catch up with the group when they played The Tribal Theatre back in May 2013 as part of Guilt Retreat.

Features an introduction by Shaun Prescott of Crawlspace magazine.
