Future Islands + Curse Ov Dialect @ Triffid, 16.11.2015

I was never sold on that Future Islands appearance on Letterman, I didn’t get the hype about either them or the performance.  That perception changed when they played at Laneway earlier this year, when they were one of the standout acts of the day.  I think sometimes (maybe often) TV appearances just don’t translate into […]

Sonic Masala 2015 @ Greenslopes Bowls Club, 14.03.2015: Part 2

I’m there for the duration but throughout the day, the numbers ebb and flow. I guess it helps that Greenslopes isn’t too far away from where I live and I’m used to photographing music festivals from first to last. I think a lot of people headed off early to catch Oblivians play their first show […]


Another year has zipped by and today’s the ninth anniversary of the site. The backlog has increased and I’ve recently found myself over a year behind, despite photographing less and less.  I think that’s half the problem; when I was photographing much more it helped make sure I kept on top of things.  I would […]


I managed to be disorganised enough to miss the eighth anniversary of keeping a blog yesterday. In those eight years I have written 544 with this post now being Number 545.  It’s been another slow year of 50 published posts.  I guess it’s a slight increase on last year’s 45 but a long way down […]

Bloods + Major Leagues @ The Worker’s Club, Melbourne, 30.08.2013

I’m always surprised whenever there’s one of those lists that places Melbourne at the top of the most liveable cities.  Although I only visit for a week or two every year, I always find it extremely overrated compared to its reputation.  You can rationalise it by considering if money was no object, would you live […]

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds @ The Riverstage, 08.03.2013

Once again it’s a very last minute confirmation of accreditation and as ever, for all Nick Cave bands, it’s a one song, no flash scenario. It’s frustrating and somewhat annoying as these days, especially when it’s a show with a pit, I’m finding that two songs is enough but one song gives you very little […]

The Very Belated That Was The Year That Was 2012

If I recall correctly from a time management course that work sent me on last year, in order for something to become a habit, you need to do it 21 times consecutively in the appropriate time period, e.g. if it’s a daily action, you need to do it for 21 days in a row, if […]


Another year has rolled around to the seventh anniversary of blogging. In those seven years I have written 495 with this post now being Number 496.  It’s been a slow year of 45 published posts, especially when you consider that this time last year I was reporting a really productive year of 88 published posts over the […]

Book Of Ships @ The Builder’s Arms, Melbourne, 27.08.2010

I was sure that I’d drafted this post a long time ago, absolutely positive. I looked everywhere to try and find the words, on every drive on every computer I own and on every flash drive I could find. Nothing. Obviously trying to recall the fine details of an evening in Melbourne 21 months ago […]


Amazingly another year has rolled by and it’s the sixth anniversary of the first blog post I ever wrote. In those six years I have written 449 blog posts, with this post now being the big 450.  This time last year I was up to 362 published posts so it’s been a really productive year of writing, […]

That Was The Year That Was 2011

As it’s already heading towards March, here’s the list of what I photographed during 2011 and sometimes even manged to find the time to blog about… Sunset Sounds – Day 2 @ The Riverstage, 6 January 2011 HEALTH @ Woodland, 15 January 2011 Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 23 January 2011 Owen Pallett […]

Metronomy + Oscar+Martin @ The Zoo, 04.01.2012

I came to Metronomy initially through reviews and interviews, rather than by actually hearing any of their songs. The point of interest was that the band’s main songwriter and singer, Joseph Mount, comes from Totnes, a small town just south of Dartmoor about 45 minutes drive away from where I come from. Devon is not […]

Jim Jones Revue + The Delta Riggs @ The Zoo, 03.01.2012

After a few weeks off from photographing and a relaxing Christmas spent not doing much at all, I spend the day finding it hard to summon up anything much in the way of enthusiasm for the first gig of the New Year, Jim Jones Revue at The Zoo. I caught a few songs from the […]

Mere Noise Meltdown 2011 @ Woodland, 03.12.2011

Out of all the people putting out music in Brisbane, Mere Noise is by far and away my favourite label and has been the whole time I’ve lived in Brisbane. Mere Noise might have a much smaller roster of active bands than some of Brisbane’s more glamorous, bigger and well connected labels but those bands but are […]

Steely Dan + Steve Winwood @ Sirromet Wines, Mt Cotton, 23.10.2011

Since the early days of me getting into music during the mid 1980s, I’ve always really loved Steely Dan. I think they’ve become one of those 1970s bands that have unfairly been collected into a list of bands from that era and of that ilk unfairly summarised as “Guilty Pleasures”. I’ve always despised the phrase, […]

No Anchor + Happy New Year + Keep On Dancin’s @ The Waiting Room, 21.10.2011

Every year work takes me down to Melbourne and rural Victoria for a three to four week in late August/early September. Every time I head down I check out the local street press (Inpress and The Beat) to see what shows are on and and try and get to see some of the Brisbane acts […]

New York Dolls + Hits + Velociraptor @ The Hi-Fi, 13.10.2011

I got to see the New York Dolls a couple of time back in 2007 when I went to both the Sydney and Gold Coast V Festivals. When you get to see a band a couple times in quick succession, you realise just how planned and rehearsed everything is, from the same set lists in […]

Thousand In Twenty – Rave Magazine’s 1,000th Edition Party @ The Zoo, 15.07.2011

I’ve been photographing for Rave since 2006, 15 September 2006 to be exact, when I covered that year’s three night Valley Fiesta for them. I started photographing for Rave through a combination of good luck, being recommended by one of the magazines writers and being available and willing to cover an event that none of […]

Laneway 2012 @ RNA Showgrounds, 28.01.2012 – The Quick Round Up

Having been to the last two Laneways in Brisbane, both of them since the move from something that resembled an actual lane to some cattle sheds and a covered outside car park, my third experience of the festival was by far and away the most disappointing. The weather definitely put a dampener on the day but the […]

Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 22.01.2012 – Quick Round Up

Sunday was my second time at the Big Day Out with a photo pass.  My day of photographing 21 bands looked like this (it would have been 22 but thanks to Kanye West being 45 minutes late, I missed Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds). View 1/22/12 11:06 AM in a larger map Total distance: 14.73km […]

Frankly! It’s A Pop Festival @ Brisbane Powerhouse, 04.09.2010

A long time ago, all the way back at the start of September 2010, more than 16 months ago, I went and took some photos at Frankly! It’s Not A Pop Festival at The Powerhouse.  Given that I love going to Frankly I really wish I had something to say about it, but,  having not […]

Explosions In The Sky + Harmony @ The Hi-Fi, 13.12.2011

My last gig for 2011. Having made a first New Year’s resolution to stop photographing at Woodland at the Kurt Vile show last week, after tonight I decide that it’s time for a second resolution come January – to stop going to see instrumental post rock bands.  I usually go and see these acts based on […]

Kurt Vile & The Violators + Blank Realm + Kellie Lloyd @ Woodland, 08.12.2011

The afternoon doesn’t get off to the best of starts when the set times are tweeted: Kellie Lloyd at 9:15pm, Blank Realm at 10:15pm and Kurt Vile at 11:15pm. It brings a quick tweeted response of my darkened mood. It’s a Thursday night, I have work to go to tomorrow and I do not want […]

Future Of The Left + Turnpike + Tape/Off @ The Zoo, 06.12.2011

Tonight is the night I finally get to see Future Of The Left for the first time. Although they have played Brisbane a few times they also seem to plan their Australian tours to coincide with the New Year and I’ve always been out of town when they’ve been here before.  In addition to the […]
