WAX WITCHES is side project for Australian punk prodigy Alex Wall of BLEEDING KNEES CLUB. There is alot said around town about Alex and what he gets up to around here, everyone has an opinion in Australia when anyone makes waves musically. I remember some girl tellin us that she told Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother to fuck off once. O well shit happens. It seems like we don’t really know how to love our heroes like they do in America!
Remembering a time when we had this preconceived expectation that this dude was gonna be some kind of asshole, but then when you meet him he was carrying a neat camera and he was actually really a sweet dude. Then we checked out his BLOG and it was like wow!
Lesson? Hmmm… Life’s too short Australia, lets just all try to get along. The kid has talent and we here at MSR HQ just dig it.
Recording in his down time with BKC gave birth to WAX WITCHES and the style of these songs is pure punk energy. They may even have a harder edge than his other band, maybe playing all the instruments gives it a more definite energy? ie; Prince and Mr Parker (Tame Impala) come to mind. Well an album is now mastered and ready to go, man Alex is hell organised, super productive and onto it.
