Nerve Quakes are, as they say, one to watch, particularly for goths or people open to the idea of goth – and they are very much a living, vital band, as the 7″ double a-side Running/Rewind, is testimony to.
Running is a track with industrial energy, slamming into its first chords with no mercy before the brief respite of the pounding verse and Caitie Moondog’s outstanding voice. If the lyrics want for tightening or a step away from vague gestures (an appeal to ambiguity which plagues Australian goth at present – these are something about robots, borrowed time, and yes, running both literal and metaphorical), then Moondog’s commitment to them more than redeems. Her voice is unyielding.

With over three decades and nineteen albums under their belts, fierce Japanese girl pop, girl punk band http://maientertainmentlaw.com/?search=accutane-dr-duke-elgin Shonen Knife have more than proved their staying power. Although they’ve remained consistently productive during that time (and their most recent album prior to this one, Overdrive, was only released in 2014) the band have undergone a dramatic line-up shift, adding drummer Risa and bassist Naru with only Naoko Yamano remaining of the original line-up. Despite this, Adventure, written by the group collectively about their experiences of the last few years, doesn’t greatly depart from form: if you’re looking for viagra generico 50 mg spedizione veloce a Bologna Ramones-influenced pop punk with their trademark cute and quirky lyrics, here you’ll find more of the same.
I took High Fidelity as my holiday reading when I realised I’d already read all the other Penguin Classics in the airport bookshop. High Fidelity is the story of a 30-something deadbeat who decides his life is over as his long-term girlfriend leaves him because he’s a massive, whingey, manipulative jerk. After some soul searching, mainly centred around tearing down the other deadbeats who frequent his failing record store and having awkward sex with a folk musician, he contacts all the women who have dumped him in the past in an attempt to find out what it is that makes him a deadbeat – and maybe even fix it.
This first RTRFM presentation of mine was devoted to the dark – post punk and goth music from Perth and further afield. Although the show is lost to the annals of time, and rightly so, the track list is below – OR you can listen to it on Spotify here.Continue reading PLAYLIST: Up Late Monday 19 March 2018

Some time ago Pelican Magazine interviewed me relating to their Space edition’s cover, featuring the Drones’ frontman Gareth Liddiard. It’s soft and vague and I talk a bit about being queer and being a cartoonist in it, and you’ll see some art I haven’t shared elsewhere.
Thank you Claudia, Kate, Ruth and all the Pelican crew for giving us artists so many opportunities, and for using such a soft filter on my face.
