"Unfortunately, this amazing band has come to an untimely end based on reasons I have no desire to repeat nor the will to comment on. But one thing's for sure, I loved seeing Drunkdriver and the world of music will miss them."
I've been caining the Born Pregnant LP, the Fire Sale 7" and mostly the Knife Day 7". I'm really keen to hear this new record which was supposed coming out April 14th on LOAD Records but they have since decided not to release it. Head to Mishka Blog to get the scoop then head to Washington City Paper to read about Load's recent decision. I'm really bummed to hear about the band breaking up. Can't help but think it's only a matter of time till Pygmy Shrews suffer the same fate. Really wish i'd had the chance to see Drunkdriver.
-I found this interesting, Kevin from Pink Reason said this on their facebook,
"If you happen to be privy to the controversery surrounding the band Drunkdriver, you should know that I support both Jeremy and the band and if you do not, please, add Pink Reason to your list of bands to boycott, we do not want your business."
This seems to be happening to a few of their records at the moment...

Happy Hate Me Nots were a Sydney band that didn't ever receive much commercial success. A 2CD collection of songs was released on Feel Presents in 2006. This band should do some reunion shows soon. I found a link for a download of one of their albums. Post a comment if you want me to find it again.

Ben Frost is a Sydney based artist. He has a new show opening tomorrow at Gorker Gallery in Fitzroy, Melbourne. His work is tongue-in-cheek and often shocking with use of common logos and well known advertising examples. Juxtaposing good and bad with sex and violence, humour and criticism.

"Essentially this is a self-policing policy whereby 'the dickhead' is not celebrated at the festival. Dickheads or people involved in dickhead behaviour will usually find that a solid citizen will firmly but politely inform them that their dickhead behaviour is not admired or appreciated. The Dickhead will usually realize they are being a dickhead and pull their head in. If not, our Helpers or Staff or even Security might make a discreet intervention.
