Woollen Kits return to Sydney for the first time since their album launch back in January. Since then it seems there’s been a lot more talk of The Kits around the water cooler, I tell ya a lotta people have been catching the WK bug in Sydney! They’ll be launching their new single on US garage powerhouse Trouble In Mind. The a-side is called Shelley and it’s a friggin’ doozy, one of their best yet and a sign of what’s to come on their new album. I’ve been fortunate enough to hear it and I reckon it rules! A bit more of a post-John Cale VU vibe, or more accurately how bands in the 80s such as the Feelies (post-Crazy Rhythms) would appropriate The Velvets, a sound allmusic.com describes as “jangle-pop”. It’s better than any LP by The dB’s (no offense guys you did write some great songs).  Anyway you gotta see ‘em, they’re the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
Terrible Truths: For a last few years I thought that maybe the NME approved post-punk revival of the early to mid noughties may have sullied any modern band taking the slinky-angular-post-punk path BUTTT Adelaide trio Terrible Truths have broken the curse! They’ve got a new split single with Hissy Miyake out on Bedroom Suck Records and their track Don Juan is a hit. Think Pylon, Kleenex/LiLiPut or some of the female fronted groups across the “Can’t Stop It” Compilation.  Check out Don Juan here… http://soundcloud.com/bedroomsuckrecords/terrible-truths-don-juan
Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys: Sydney’s rock ‘n’ roll dreamers have only played a handful of shows this year, not by choice cause they’ve been friggin’ busy! They’ve been recording their debut LP (that actually only took 2.5 days, out later this year on R.I.P Society), Joe has been getting around the US with Royal Headache, Ben being a Physiotherapist, Doug working in the fast paced world of photography and Nic inserting inserts into records. Expect a bunch of songs you’ve never heard before, hopefully reminiscent of rock greats like Soft Boys, Only Ones, X, Guided By Voices and (duh) The Replacements.
Drum Drum: I haven’t seen this band but David Akermanis (Dead Farmers/Brisbane Lions) on the drums, Del on vocals (DJ Del, Family bass player) and some other guy are the members. I asked my brother Ben if they sounded like the Homostupids, he said “no more like Eddy Current or Taco Leg. I am excited, genuinely excited to see them”.
