    Live Delay - Ep 414 - WHALEHOUSE & GUNK

    WHALEHOUSE & GUNK:

    Live at Netherworld, Fortitude Valley, 30 October 2022

    This is episode 414 of Live Delay and we’re featuring two sets from two Meanjin Punk Rock legends, WHALEHOUSE and GUNK, both one word - all caps. This recording was taken at a special reunion Halloween party held in honour of GUNK on the 30th of October in 2022. WHALEHOUSE are a relatively new local band, imagine an unhinged all-female Devo. They’re fun, they’re weird and they have a thing for large subaquatic fauna. This episode's second set is from local Riot Grrl punk band GUNK, they initially made waves in Meanjin-Brisbane’s scene back in 2012 with the release of their self-titled EP and 2013 album ‘Sugarsoap’, GUNK had since broken up and remained on hiatus for years before the reunion gig we were lucky enough to record in October of 2022.

    Live Delay - Ep 413 - 2022

    2022 Year in Review:

    Our last episode for the year is a compilation of the absolute best tracks broadcast in 2022 on 4zzz's own Live Delay program, the show dedicated to delivering the best of Meanjin-Brisbane's live music scene from the live stage to the mixing desk to your living room/car/wherever you catch your 4zzz's. Many of the broadcast's this year have been hidden gems from years long gone and pre-pandemic shows, but a few green shoots are emerging from the last few years of COVID chaos and live music is officially back in town.

    Our year in review episode for 2022 features tracks from An Horse, Little Scout, Bad Sext, Double Bummer, Monet's Pond, Ed Kuepper, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Some Jerks, Full Power Happy Hour, Waveney Yasso, Bob Weatherall, Halfway and William Barton.

    Special thanks to the legion of volunteers that it takes to produce this program each year, we'll see you all next year!

    Live Delay - 412 - Alter Boy

    Live Delay - 412 - Alter Boy

    Alter Boy:

    Live at Yonder Festival Amphitheatre Stage, Mary Valley, 26 November 2021

    This episode Live Delay has captured a spellbinding performance from Perth queerlectro pop band Alter Boy. A incredibly unique band -besides the nacreous sheen of oozing talent- Alter Boy identifies as a deaf or hard-of-hearing band, with three of their members identifying as such. Their darkly jubilant music champions trans and queer identities, and the band have taken pains to integrate Auslan translation into all of their performances. Implementing heavy bass and sub tones throughout their oeuvre is yet another way for Alter Boy to connect with their deaf and hearing-impaired community. This particular set was recorded live at Yonder Festival’s Amphitheatre stage in 2021, somewhere around the Scenic Rim of South-east Queensland.

    Monet's Pond - "Meant to Be", "Feel Right" & "Floating in the Air"

    Live Delay - Ep 411 - Fresco Kyoto

    Fresco Kyoto:

    Live at the Black Bear Lodge, Fortitude Valley, 2 January 2020

    Meanjin/Brisbane-based art-pop group Fresco Kyoto came about on the scene in 2017 with the release of their debut single 'Fool Me Once', since then they've picked up a record deal and released a steady stream of singles and EPs. Taking inspiration from acts like Mansionair, London Grammar, Glass Animals and Radiohead, Fresco Kyoto have released six singles and one EP, with another EP on the way. This episode we present a recording of Fresco Kyoto performing live at the Black Bear Lodge in January 2020, just before the first wave of COVID-19 hit. Joining Matt this episode is Fresco Kyoto lead singer Robbie Balmer for a chat about the band's origins and creative philosophy.

    Live Delay - Ep 410 - Double Bummer & Lackadaisies

    Live Delay - Ep 410 - Double Bummer & Lackadaisies

    Double Bummer:

    Live at The Foundry, Fortitude Valley, 20 February 2020

    A bloody fantastic little band consisting of Erin Fanning and Joe Campbell. Unique as they come – Double Bummer were active around 2018 until 2020 and very sadly never released any recordings. Chaotic, lo-fi and upbeat, it would be brilliant to see this talented two-piece back in action again.

    Lackadaisies:

    Live at Sonic Masala Fest, The Triffid, Newstead, 13 August 2022

    Our second set this episode is another thick slice of contemporary Alternative Australiana from Meanjin’s own Lackadaisies, a three-piece band whose members have graced the rosters of Full Power Happy Hour, The Blankettes, Married Man, No DOZ and Camping. They have recently released their first EP 'Payphone Text' through local record label Zang Records.
