Published in April 2017, this feature article appears in vol 2 of Swampland, a Victorian long-form music journalism magazine.
This piece is a short history of the Perth DIY punk venue 208s, featuring interviews with members of the Reptilians, Agitated, Helta Skelta and the Darling Rangers and polaroid photos I took of live gigs there over the last few years.
Due to licencing, this article is only available in the issue itself, which is available to order here on Swampland‘s website.
In the lead up to Australia Day/Invasion Day, we’re meditating on Australian identity, nationalism and colonialism in this exhibition at Beyond Skate. I’ll have two paintings, Ides and Cinis, in the exhibition, on colonial grief, guilt, horror and assimilated cultural identity. You can watch their progress via my instagram 📷.
