Feature Artist /// February 2018 – FERN
FERN was born from a series of drunken jam sessions around 2015, when Scott and Lauren eventually asked a friend around to hit some drums. With a small but growing collection of music gear we recorded, produced and released our first track ‘It Comes Slow’… and were stoked with it’s reception. Scott and Lauren mainly co-write FERN‘s songs, which bring together elements of pop and noise. We’ve spent a lot of time in our practice space mucking around with different equipment and software to create some weird, obscure sounds. We’ve since released a couple more songs and have been playing with guitarist/engineer/wizard Dan and drummer Billy since last year.

Story behind song: Just a song about growing older.

Samoan local artist/musician Ray Lalotoa like most Aussies caught onto the humour of comedian Aaron Gocs back in 2016 when he first dropped his breakthrough video STITCH UP AT WORK TODAY, a man’s rant about getting stitched up by his mates at work. This 1 minute beauty caught the imagination of many, went viral and the rest they say is comedy history. LOLs! Continue reading “RIOT OF THE DAY /// CLASSIC STITCH UP”
SAMOAN in Surry Hills is a prolific body of mixed media works exploring Raymond Tuifao Lalotoa’s fluency in urban and cultural pictorial languages. This series is a portrait of an ever changing inner city environment colliding with Lalotoa’s Pacific Island heritage in strong graphic language and hypnotic colour palette.

MY PUSSY RIOT was a killer music compilation we put out five years ago in support of punk art feminists PUSSY RIOT who were arrested for staging a protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin inside an Orthodox Cathedral in Russia. Some of Australia’s most killer independent artists kindly donated their songs for no charge which was pretty awesome. Continue reading “RIOT OF THE DAY /// FIVE YEARS AGO! FREE PUSSY RIOT!”
Ray Lalotoa has taken some down time from his band Fait Accompli to focus on some community projects and personal projects including a journey into electronic music territory which has taken up a fair bit of his brain space over the Summer. Continue reading “RAY LALOTOA DROPS GIRL”
The Australian federal election happens this week and truth be told, alot of young people seem to be very disengaged from the debate. To be honest it’s pretty disappointing, but what more can a poor boy do? Continue reading “AUSTRALIA VOTES”
