In Poland they call it a koncert. In the USA it’s called a show. In Germany it’s a konzert. In the UK it’s a rave or symphony. In Italy it’s a concerto. In Australia it’s called a gig (or sometimes jig) and a small percentage of the population enjoys them or feels socially obligated to go to them every once and a while. Here are some gigs related to this record label in the near future….
*Thursday Pistonhead & RIP Society present THE STEVENS, RUINED FORTUNE & MEAT TRAY. Cool bands. Who needs a soul anyway??
Saturday Twerps EP Launch at Red Rattler. BWBBs first show in months. Rehearsals have been very productive. Stoked 2 be playing with Twerps. I’m very glad The Friendsters are playing too!
*Tuesday Aug 26 Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys play Manly Boatshed for the launch of a new range of street wear. Straight Arrows are also playing but I think it’s in a shop or something. If anyone wants to come or know anyone that’d want to come I can put you on the door. I would love to invite a quirky Mr Bean style character to spice up the night. There’s free alcohol and maybe free fedoras and food.
Friday 29 and Sunday 31 Repressed Records 12th Birthday Show!! Two swell line-ups that I hope reflect multiple facets of what the shop stocks. Drunk Elk, Cooper Bowman and Soma Coma all coming from out of town. Also a massive sale at the store that weekend. It’s also my birthday on Sunday.
*Wednesday September 17. Housewives, Low Life, Ausmuteants play with euro superstars Ice Age. I have wiggled my way onto the Bill as the DJ (yeah I’m a DJ now, who isn’t?!?!) I will be playing the beautiful song by Lou Reed & Metallica - Junior Dad in it’s entirety at some point. It goes for 19min and is a whole side of the 2xLP. Other selections will probably include Merciful Fate, Skatt Bros, first Sick Of It All 7”, Hieroglyphic Being and anything else that’ll amuse me, myself and I at the expense of others. DJ BEN WARNOCK will also be selecting tunes (he’s a DJ now too).
* = some corporate interest and non-standard process to obtain entry
If anyone want to see Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys for free in the beachside suburb of Manly next Tuesday 9pm night get in touch. It’s a fashion launch night, we’ve got a few door spots for people in the area or willing to travel. Anyone that deserves a night out, may get a kick out of our band, works weekends (when we usually play) feel free to drop us a line.
This has just kind of crept up. Roughly one week away.

BEST REASON TO WRTE A FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEW TODAY!
✩M.O.B. M.O.B. lp(R.I.P. Society, Aus - 2014)✩
- There’s no shortage of sick tombstones to trip over at R.I.P. Society, but this purple Mersh Of Blastitude shan’t be overlooked for more easily digestible lollipops. Gurgling burbles of cross talking korgs escort each other into the bleak echelon of early Cabaret Voltaire squirm, with all offerings draped in the lusty terror howl of decrepit synths aiming to rearrange the appliances - and your nipples - while you sleep. This is high caliber squelch and enjoyable beyond reason. Easter Bilby distro’s got a bunch, so talk to your machines and make it happen.
- Shaun Prescott of Australia’s Crawlspace Mag raves about M.O.B in 2013, but nowhere on Crawlspace Mag is Eddie Flowers mentioned.

Nothin’ 2 add here, just re-blogging some praise
I’ve listened to this one so much that I’m challenging myself by listening to a different record while I write this. Actually, I’m not listening to anything but the ambient rush of traffic along the BQE. It’s a clean, headclearing sound that would be a good ambient background for…
