It's also Franca from Brainwaves birthday party too which makes things even sweeter. She don' drink and she don' smoke but do get her a drink of some non-alcoholic description when you see her.

OFF THE HIP RECORDS, Instore 2nite!

Off The Hip is a great record store.
There's always something good playing and there's always new stock coming in. In the past year or so i've spent a fair bit of time sitting in the store drinking beer and hassling my buddy Jack Petty while he's resting his hangover. If you see this post before 7pm today you should totally go to Off The Hip which is on Havistock Lane - near Queen St and Flinders Lane. They usually have a bunch of beer but you can bring your own too.

Tonight @ OTH:
Lost Ones 7:30
Midnight Woolf 8:15
Los Chicos (Spain) 9:00

If you see a handsome young man with a brimming moustache tell him he is a cunt.

Stained Sheets 3.2 - Melbourne, Victoria

Stained Sheets releases are few but welcomed like finding that $10 note in your jacket you can't explain. Previous issues have all lead to further probing of contained subjects which include the likes of Venom P. Stinger, The Bitters, Modern Convenience, Kurt Vile, The Flecks etc.

This issue is #4 and extended to 32 pages (still free) featuring interviews with 1950's Melbourne R'n'R party band The Blue Bops by Scott Campbell, NZ-now-Sydney jangle-pop Garbage & The Flowers by Cooper Bowman, Manic New Jersey Brat punk Home Blitz, frantic Tampa Bay noise punk Neon Blud, daydream beached out Sonny & The Sunsets all by Tim Scott as well as 4 or 5 others worth a look-in. Issue 4 also has discussion on vintage Adelaide 77' fanzine, Street Fever and finishes with 2 pages of paragraph-long reviews from favourites of mine including: Rhys Davies, Leon O'Regan and Dan Stewart.
