Three goals for your music:

Two live gigs you’ll never forget and why:

Our first gig at SxSW – after driving across the USA for three days with no sleep and then having to run around Austin searching for gear (ours didn’t make it through customs) this gig was a release, a relief and fun as. James Brown  ’98 – My first ever proper concert and I got to see the Godfather of Soul. I lost my virginity that night too.


One day left before the apocalypse and you…:

Start believing in God.


When’s the gig / release?

Northcote Social Club, this Saturday February 25.
