Tunesday Review: Osaka Punch Achieve Major Squad Goals With ‘Death Monster Super Squad’ EP

More baddass than Hellboy? Raunchier than the whole of the Underworld franchise? The new Osaka Punch Death Monster Super Squad record will have you practicing your best slow motion supervillain strut in your best birthday suit – and killing it.

Eat You Up opens the show with the tried and tested boy meets girl. Featuring ample horns, and one shattering breakdown this story-line is more akin to spider meet fly. Make...

Tunesday Review: Nice Biscuit, Bixby Canyon, The Dollar Bill Murrays And Shady Bliss Turned Up The Party At Pre-Ekka Wrekka

It was the night before a public holiday, and like any upstanding young citizen we headed out to catch some of Brisbane’s musical talent at Black Bear Lodge’s Pre-Ekka Wrekka Party. Psychedelic rockers Nice Biscuit opened the night with an instrumental song that immediately transported you to a summer afternoon along the beach with a chilled beer. Combining the finer points of psychedelia with modern acoustic rock and a hint of solid funk rhythms these ladies and lads constantly surprised. Bixby Canyon were up next and they started their set the way they ended it – hard, fast and...
