RIOT OF THE DAY /// I HATE THE THE RUMINATERS

ruminaters

Shit! this could be the most punk ass smart move from an independent Australian band since the invention of #Instagrammys.

This Mini Doco will change lives! HAHA! If it don’t, then it should definitely inspire more bands to do their own docos. Cause lets face it, we’ve all been talkin about it for years, but no one ever gets their finger out to actually do it. Hahaha! #SNAP!

The Ruminaters rule! and are way too cool for da haterz!!! Check it out! X MSR

RIOT OF THE DAY /// THE RUMINATERS – GREMLINS IN BLACK


We were all over THE RUMINATERS way back in the day and they have held a torch to our hearts for a few years now. Any band that consistently puts out pure blissful punky pop tunes deserve to have their own Universe and The Ruminaters have planets aligning in spades. It really is bizarre that these guys haven’t blown up yet. But hey don’t speak too early Joe, maybe their time to take flight is right about now? Who knows with the Australian music Gods these days? I mean who actually runs the music industry? The Wizard of OZ?

Their latest single GREMLINS IN BLACK totally captures what it would be like to go out on a date with one of these fine lads. It’s all sweet out the front then later comes the big bad party punch, but on this track the boys give that shit a twist and never go on to their usual raid of the party fridge, instead they keep it in a zone that helps create some sweet colour and nice feelings (like seriously nice feelings above and below the waist). Maybe this will be enough to sweeten the warm music loving ear lobes over at the J’s and finally these guys will be given the kick they need to kill the 2016 Summer festival season fo real!

Lets be honest, more people need to know about The Ruminaters! so do yourself a favour and tweet this shit! How do we invent a machine that turns robot consumers into consumers of the good shit? Can you imagine that? Nah Fuck all the nice shirt wearing people who consume everything! Haha! just joking! You people are rad! just take this pill. Taste nice doesn’t it? there there.

If this song was a joint it would be called Juan No. 1.

THE RUMINATERS ROCK YA HEARD??! X

RIOT RADIO INTERVIEWS SYDNEY BANDS /// WHY IS BEING IN A BAND IMPORTANT TO YOU?

We invited some of our favourite Sydney bands THE JONES RIVAL,CHICKS WHO LOVE GUNS, FAIT ACCOMPLI, FIRESAINT, STICKY FINGERS, THE CHITTICKS, THE RUMINATERS, BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL to pop around for a little Q & A.

We were originally going to make the videos really short, but all the bands had some really interesting answers and that in itself was kinda refreshing.

THE RUMINATERS /// RETURN TO CANTEEN w- THE JONES RIVAL

RUMINATERS WEB POSTER

One of our favourite Sydney bands of all time is THE RUMINATERS. Anyway when we first started our RESIDENTS night they came along and hung out for a whole month with GOONS OF DOOM. Some good times were had and then they went away, visited some amazing places like USA, Venus and Mars and now they’re back!

They’re back with a brand new single called ONE GIRL AND A KNIFE. It’s a kick ass track and the video is pretty sweet too, hand-made and filmed on an iphone.

Anyway the boys return this Thursday to CANTEEN to play a one-off show and we hope you will all make an effort to get down there this Thursday. Pretty sure it’s going to be packed to the eye balls, so get there early and get yourself a good spot.

They will be joined by another Sydney band who are kickin some sweet ass right now – THE JONES RIVAL.

8pm free entry this Thursday. FO REAL!

9/21 FEATURED ARTIST – THE RUMINATERS

9 THE RUMINATERS

Artist: THE RUMINATERS

THE RUMINATERS are definitely the band to watch in 2013! The last time we saw these guys live, the future just flashed in front of our collective eye sockets. Visions of these guys moving to New York and skateboarding down Broadway with THE STROKES was one of many. WTF!?

THE RUMINATERS possess a maturity in song writing which is uncommon for bands that are starting out. We were fans of these guys from the start, but their live show has really taken a big turn, they have just become more brutally tight, louder but still fun and wholesome. Also the nailing of the breakdowns and quiet moments is really an amazing trick and any band that can nail this is pretty much deserving of what comes next.

With a debut album in the pipelines, who knows what might be next for this layed back four piece from the Northern Beaches of Sydney? A well organised tour and some sweet supports with some bigger bands will definitely help things along. Bookers?

Their songwriting is hooky and the melodies are memorable and have a dark pop to it, but without losing the punk rock appeal to what they do. Hopefully the new material will continue the shaping of what they have already done. The songs Timmy and Dead Things have been great introductions to the band.

The sky is the limit for THE RUMINATERS! Fuckin nice guys too. True story.
