MY SYDNEY RIOT INTERVIEW /// SPIRIT VALLEY

SPIRIT VALLEY BW

If one particular two-piece band in Sydney was ‘REGULATING’ right now, then that band would definitely be SPIRIT VALLEY. These guys have been playing around the traps over the last few years, but it seems like in the last 6 months they have really taken this town by the throat (Sydney at best can be a voiceless child standing there looking at the concrete without a voice) so that is sayingalot!Like all cats who like to be in the know we keep survey on what peoplearesayin on the streets and one question that comesupalot is “do you know Spirit Valley?” So if people are asking questions like this then one must get their investigating sunglasses on and go to the source and ask the questions… and that’s exactly what we did.We met in the dark of night at a Petrol Station near Wollongong and so we proceeded to ask the boys a few questions. We kinda went deep, not too deep, but deep enough to get an insight into how Spirit Valley ticks.SPIRIT VALLEY mean the business and it’s fuckin about time some serious Sydney rock n’ roll appeared on the horizon.

Here’s what they had to say…Enjoy!

TOUR /// THE CHITTICKS HIT THE ROAD

One of our favourite bands right now in Sydney are THE CHITTICKS. This special 6 piece from Bondi are making some seriously amazing music and if you are into psychedelic sounds then you must go and see these guys out their own twist on proceedings.

This is their first go at hitting the road with another awesome band THE WALKING WHO, so it would be totally rad if you went along to show them some support. Take along a friend and discover something new and have a big pash while The Chitticks fill your brain with some crazy ideas.

Also bring a joint to share with the band, pretty sure that will go down well post show. Yew!

MSR EXCLUSIVE! NO ART – NEW ZEALAND TOUR DIARY

Sydney three-piece NO ART have been a MSR favourite for a while now and we’ve enjoyed watching their progress.

A recent tour to New Zealand was definitely a great way to kick off 2012 and it’s good to know that the kiwis have been exposed to this epic band, we imagine their music going well with the wide open spaces of New Zealand.

SNAKY LOOKING is a beautiful epic slow burner (yes it goes for 21 minutes), press play and check out the images plus tour diary they sent us (also below) while on tour. If you take the time to listen we guarantee that you will become a fan. If we’re right then you must return the favour and invite us over for a joint.

Love NO ART, an amazing band and three very cool human beings. Their music will make you feel optimistic and warm on the inside, the complete opposite of a world without art.

Keep an eye out for their debut EP – coming soon.

Sweet bonus track KIDS IN PLACE at end of post!

Catch NO ART this Sunday at Hollywood Hotel, Surry Hills – Free show, so go!

Press Play! SNAKY LOOKING

Check out Tour Diary!

No Art’s visit to NZ was a whirlwind, to say the least. We played with so many incredible bands and Camp A Low Hum was another universe. A few moments we captured along the way:
With Bare Grillz at the Lucha Lounge, Auckland. We’re only hours into this joint tour but all signs point to yes.
The boys deck themselves out in No Art paraphernalia in the tour van.
Bare Grillz at the Arc Theatre, Whanganui.
Rest days at Cactus Jack’s in Rotarua.
Soaking up the sights and sulphuric atmosphere.
B-ball.
Hot springs.

The lagoon stage.
Terrible Truths, amazing.
Kirin J. Callinan crooning as the sun set was terrifyingly wonderful.
Vivian prepares for stage.
Day three of Camp in the aptly named noisy room. This show got a little bit wild, one lad was hanging from the rafters and I discovered that straight from a plastic bottle really is the best way to drink gin. Photo by Nick Carson.
