RIOT OF THE DAY /// FIVE YEARS AGO! FREE PUSSY RIOT!

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.

We ended up on the BBC and all over the internet. Interviewed by Associated Press and even Triple J! 

Anyway we made a small contribution to the international movement which led to PUSSY RIOT’s eventual release. You know the ripples etc… Check out the solid list of bands below. It was so cool how so many bands came together for a worthy cause.

You can still download it for free from HERE

RIOT OF THE DAY /// PROTEST SONG BY RAY LALOTOA (FAIT ACCOMPLI)

PROT SONG BY LALOTOA

Hi friends,

I spent the holidays feeling depressed about the Lock out Laws and the current state of NSW. Anyway I started humming this tune and I kinda ended up expressing my feelings the best way I know how, thru song (and Garageband).

I’m not gonna say too much about our current nightmare, because I know we’ve all been keeping up with all the articles. I just want people to know that what is happening to us is only an introduction to what is coming. We’re feeling the pinch with these abhorrent lock out laws, but then there’s the treatment of refugees, the poor, the old, gay and lesbians, the marginalised and even our indigenous people. Our freedoms are being challenged by our Government both State and National and things are only going to get worst, not better, worst!

STD ISSUE #003 /// CALLING FOR CREATIVE SUBMISSIONS

We’ve got a few killer projects coming up this year, but to warm up for a much bigger project we are working on we are putting the call out to artists to submit all kinds of random stuff for Issue no.3 of what has been a pretty low-key unknown e-zine that we’ve put together from time to time; STD aka SHAKE THE DOG.

So if you’re feeling inspired then hop right to it and send thru the following… art, photography (all kinds), mp3’s (for a STD mixtape… weird random shit; demos are more than welcome), sketches, photos of your dog, photos of you as a kid, lyrics, poetry, short stories, interviews, basically anything really, try us, send us other people’s rad work too haha! well… ummmm…. Anyways test our creative brains with your perspective on art and shit!

*Remember all files must be of the digital nature, so we won’t be accepting physical canvasses or sculptures (well right now anyways) haha! and don’t forget to credit yourself or whomever the work is by.

Email all files to mysydneyriot@gmail.com or if the files are of the big nature then please use Dropbox or Hightail etc and send us the link and we’ll do the downloading ourselves…

Limited spaces so be quick.

Good luck!

Things have been heating up in the media regarding the state of the live music scene in Sydney and the Governments proposed 1.30am blanket lock outs in the cities CBD (at the writing of this post these laws were passed swiftly over night without any public consultation). The Wentworth Courier approached a punter; Darlinghurst resident; Sean Roche, a venue owner; Oxford Art Factory’s Mark Gerber and a musician; Frontman of Sydney band Fait Accompli; Ray Lalotoa. This is what they all had to say on the matter.

Wenworth Courier is delivered free to most households every Wednesday in the Eastern Suburb areas of Sydney. Also available from your local Newsagent.
