The UV Race (Melb)
After their rowdy set at Flip Out Sydney, Victorias most popular
sun-worshiping 6 piece are back in Sydney to launch their universally loved debut LP. Idiot savant punk rock at it’s best!
Four musical obsessives who channel their affection of the best
elements of punk, power pop, soul and garage to create songs that will stay with you - permanently.
Lakes sees Sean Bailey drifting solo across the badlands, with burnt out ragas crafted out of a tangle of instruments summoning up a fear of open spaces. Incorporating the darker side of post-punk, acid-folk and bleak eastern guitar scales with a menacing no-hoper punk rock atmosphere.
DJs: Owen (of Straight Arrows / Pee Wee) & Bad Wettin’ Bad Boys

Twerps and Beaches at Abbruzzo Club on Friday.
- I really enjoyed the show being somewhere else than the usual venue thing. I got in just at Beaches were starting- one of my favourite Melb bands but i always miss their shows. It was nice to see such a good turnout for the show actually. The Twerps were great, everyone was into it. I had to run just as they finished. Love the 7!
U.V Race, Royal Headache, Deaf Wish and Breaker Morant at Ding Dong on Saturday.
- I'd been thinking about this show for ages, it was a dream line up for me. I got to the show at like 8:01 to avoid missing Breaker- i thought they were a good opening to the night. I hadn't seen them in a long while and they sounded just as good but totally different than i remembered. During Deaf Wish i was buying multiple jugs before 10:00 as they shot up from $10 to more than i could afford. They did a good set, very loud and heavy.
Royals are so good- if you don't know it yet you'll be kicking yourself when you finally figure it out. UV's did an amazing set, the whole crowd went mental- i have some nice bruised knee to show for it. I love the U.V shirt i got as well, Georgia did a bunch of different designs on them.
I spent tonight over in Northcote at Willow Bar as Jack P invited me to play some records and drink beer. It was a great way to end the weekend. Hope you had a good'n too.
I took the weekend off taking my camera out to just drink and party so if i find some good photos i'll throw up a link. Check the U.V LP article on Mess+Noise for punter reviews.

What were you for halloween?
I heard you started out as an elvis impersonator, did you ever go to any conventions or anything like that and how were you received by the elvis-loving community?
I've been to many E conventions. Elvis lovers don't care for much if it ain't the king, nawmean.
A lot of your artwork is a reference to other bands, any particular reason why?
I have no thoughts of my own.
Whats the best/most surprising description of your music you have heard?
"music that is stripped of all redeeming features, just a bunch of fuck ups doing the shittiest thing they can think of"
Do you have fans that have sent you really weird stuff? if so, like what?
I've had multiple dead rabbits thrown at me.
Does it surprise you that parents bring small children to your shows and how do you feel about it?
Nothing surprises me, it's 2009. Kids, dogs, grannies.... all is welcome.
I saw the "alleged worst show of 2008" video, has there been a worst of 2009 show?
You have no idea
But seriously, what's with the mask?
Usually some sweat n stink.
What is Christmas like in the Nobunny home?
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
THANK YOU NOBUNNY!!!!!
AUSTRALIA LOVES YOU!!!!!
I have every intention to make this gig, really wanna see Beaches again!!
