This one will be pretty great. Part of the Brisbane festival, it’s in The Spiegeltent on Southbank, there’s a bunch of mega reputable bands all rocking out on a Sunday afternoon..

To celebrate the 40th birthday of Australia’s first community FM broadcaster, we’ve pulled together a showcase of seminal acts that have been integral to Brisbane’s music scene over the last four decades, including Jeremy Neale, Screamfeeder, Ups and Downs and Ed Kuepper.

Sunday September 20th, 2015, The Spiegeltent – Cultural Forecourt SOUTH BANK QLD 4101. It’s in the afternoon, that’s all we know. We’ll let you know playing times asap.

Rocks-Album-CoverOK the cat’s now out of the bag. We’re writing new songs. And we’re going into the studio in early September to record the first 2 or 3 of them. These will be released in October, in time for our TOUR IN NOVEMBER to celebrate the ROCKS ON THE SOUL re-issue on glorious vinyl through the illustrious Poison City Records.

That’s pretty good huh? Is that enough for you? Our first new stuff in 10 years.. Rocks back after 15 (!) and sounding better than ever. I know, it’s nuts, we walk into the practice room and it feels like yesterday.

Pretty much every band in the world is re forming right now, and why the hell not, being in a band is better than: having a job, having kids, buying a house, or deciding “the band isn’t doing it for me any more dude, I need to branch out and discover myself”. No, these things will come and go, band-life is forever.

So yeah, exciting! We’re back, bro. Pass the word, pass the dutchie, get your hi-5’n hands up and ready.

To celebrate the general awesomeness of vinyl, we’re chopping back the price on the 4 pack of vinyl releases from last year. $80.00 for the lot, plus we’re offering free postage (ie we will get in the car and deliver them) to inner-west Brisbane. Check it here.

Leaps and Bounds

June 1, 2015

Label-of-LoveAs part of the annual Leaps and Bounds festival, we’re playing at LABEL OF LOVE, a POISON CITY RECORDS showcase, it’s gonna be super rad. See you in Melbourne~!

THE MEANIES // SCREAMFEEDER // FLOUR // PALE HEADS

Born in the spare bedroom of a dingy share-house over a decade ago, Poison City has grown from a weekend hobby to one of Australia’s most prolific and well respected independent labels. Home to the likes of The Smith Street Band, Harmony, Clowns, Batpiss, The Bennies, Deep Heat and Mere Women, Poison City is as much of a music community as a label or record store; presenting tours, local shows and their annual Weekender Fest.

In celebration of the Leaps & Bounds festival’s ‘Label Of Love’ series of shows at Shadow Electric, Poison City has bought together two classics of the Australian underground, Melbourne’s buzz-saw punk legends THE MEANIES and Brisbane’s indie-rock darlings SCREAMFEEDER for one special night! They’ll be joined by scuzz-rockers FLOUR and noise-rock all stars PALE HEADS (members of The Nation Blue / Batpiss/ ex.The Drones).
