4ZzZ Carpark Gig, Kick out the Jams 18-05-13

 Every so often 4ZzZ put on a free gig in the car park of the stations
inner city grounds.Its not a big car park so it has a kind of
house party atmosphere which is nice
Today's gig was the Kick out the Jams gig, I caught the last 4 bands,
there was 6 all up and I really went there see to one of my favorite
Brisbane bands of the moment, the Flangipanis.
First band up was Citizen John (above) who put on a mighty fine set
check em out here

Then a nice and heavy set from Smoke check em out here

Followed by some loud and dirty blues from Deadweight Express

And then the moment we all had been waiting for
The Flangipanis!

Damn fine set from the guys if you haven't heard these
guys then get along to their bandcamp site and have a listen
Their new album comes out in a couple of weeks
and I believe you can download their last album for free
at their bandcamp site which is here
It fast and furious pop punk, its as funny as hell
and its very entertaining!

From The Suburbs

Meanwhile in The Suburbs - Cassette release from 1987.

If there is anyone who sums up Australia in the 70s it's Dave Warner.
Dave Warner came out of Perth Western Australia in 1973 with his band Pus, and later formed "Dave Warner's From The Suburbs" in 1977.
Not only is he a musician with over a dozen albums to his credit he's also an author, screenwriter and producer.

Head on over to to pickup some of his CDs or books (personally I'd recommend Mugs Game)

Have a listen to the cassette  HERE
