Chris called me up maybe Friday afternoon, got pre-occupied with work and forgot to check in. The BWBB blog sums it up pretty well, thought I’d emphasise that this campaign ends in under a week and that even dollar raised will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia. So if you donate $15 you’re donating $30 and working towards putting something incredible together
Chris Hearn has taken it upon himself to fill the hole left by Sound Summit taking a hiatus, and is using the crowdfunding platform in a way that isn’t a huge charity- if people want it, it will happen, and Creative Partnerships Australia match the campaign dollar for dollar up to $4000.
October 2-5 in partnership with the This Is Not Art Festival.
Sunday at The Croatian Club, 25+ bands curated by RIP Society Records, Bedroom Suck Records, Y202 Records and Flip To Presant.

Adelaide based Nopatience Records / mailorder reflects on the Low Life - Dogging LP. An excerpt… “LOW LIFE is an interesting band. Essentially the quintessential Negative Guest List band. Outsider rock and roll with a fetishism for lower socio-economic youth culture…… Watching them live brought to mind the late 80s when british skinheads discovered meth and started going to raves and realised running shoes were more comfortable than boots and easier to steal, but still wanted to play rock and roll.” Grab the new Flesh World & Lakes 7”s while you’re there. Heck, chuck in that Modern Warfare 7” too.
Marketing scheme from Sydney record store…
Fierce competition seems to be great for commerce. So we thought we’d invent our own fictional contest! The battle for #1 spot atop the Repressed Records June Best Sellers list aka The World Cup of our Stock Movement Spreadsheet. Battling out for the #1 spot this month is death-rock hooligans Low Life and extraterrestrial synth-punks M.O.B. Two Sydney bands with rabid fan bases! Who will take out the top spot? It’s band against band, fan against fan.
