Superscope

I’ve nicked this bio from Something Old, Something new which has some awesome stuff uploaded and is well worth a look.

Superscope play a great mix of heavy guitar riffs and power-pop. The band formed in Perth in 1994 and despite a brief period playing as Rueben Kinkaide have been consistent performers in the Perth band scene since that time. Superscope have also been dogged by regular line-up changes, their only constant being guitarist, vocalist and lyricist Kevin Borruso.

Kevin originally made his name in the early 1990s as a member of The Stonemasons with Joe Algeri before forming his own band in Superscope.

Here is their 1995 EP ‘Generally Electric’. They put out another EP and an LP but I don’t own them.

Scout

New upload today from a band I know little about.

This is a 1996 EP by the band ‘Scout’ called ‘Honey’. It’s quite a beautiful thing filled with acoustic guitars, haunting female vocals and pianos.

Some information from Gavin Criddle from out Facebook page :

Scout were people from Proof, and they became Subject to Flooding If I’ve got my order right – Kate Andrews also had some solo stuff around. And they finally ended up as Razorlily.

Other links from Proof were the bands Patterns In Glass, Looking For Lester and Life on Mars.

Lineup :

Kate Andrews

Subha Naidu

Gavin Crawcour

Jon Elder

Other musicians : Narelle Jones, Jeff Gray, Julie Williams, David Sandcock and Kathy Porter.

Ikey Mo

Bio stolen. What a great band. Released one EP that I have here, but I’m not sure what else they put out.

 

IKEY MO (pronounced: eye key mo)
: cockney slang for dodgy or mischievous behavior, receiver of stolen goods and excessive gamblers.

Heres how it goes. Ikey Mo started life in June 2000, one stormy night, high above the sleeping city of Perth when a crazed nuclear physicist and his trust assistant Igor channeled the energy of lightening down to their hillside laboratory to create new life. Vocalist / Guitarist / Songwriter Chris Fuller was joined with Glen Young (Guitar/ Vocals) , David Manley (Bass guitar) and Gary Kump (Drums) in what was to become a Frankenstienesque amalgam of members of notable acts Anodyne 500, Burnside, Collide and Vinyl.

Mr Manleys shoes have since been filled by the enigma (and certified monster of rock) known as Adam Safe (ex. Wookstar). Anyone familiar with the Perth music scene over the last few years would know that this was going to be a formidable combination.

The bands debut EP Beginners Guide To Self Defence, recorded at Studio Couch by Sean O Callaghan (Halogen, Eskimo Joe, John Butler Trio) was released in October 2002 and from the early reports the public at large are going to need to defend themselves against its mind-melding charms. From the infuriatingly catchy opener Evil Knievel, to the sonic explosion that is Chemical Girl, through to the moody atmospherics of Know Who You Are, an amazing amount of musical ground is being covered over the five tracks on offer.

A short time after its release Beginners Guide.. had received rave reviews throughout Australia and Evil Knievel found its way to Triple Js hit list. If that were not enough Ikey Mo also in this time took out a swag of awards at the Music Oz Awards in Sydney including the Artists of the Year Award, Festival Publishing Award, APRA Songwriters Award and the overall New Alternative Pop/ Rock category.

2003 ? you ask Ikey Mo plan to deliver what the good rockin doctor orders a tour of the east coast of Australia in April/ May, releasing a new recording and plenty more smoldering live performances.

So there you have it. The Mo have landed. Lock up your daughters, brothers, mothers and any spare cash because no one is safe (except Adam of course), now they are amongst us! The force is strong with these ones Obi wan.

Aether 2 Compilation

This is a compilation of Perth electronic musicians released on the label’Kieper Records’.

I can not find any information at all online about this label or compilation! It’s quite good though. Generally it leans towards the more ambient side of electronic music, with a couple more triphop/breaks/electro cuts thrown in too. Most of these artists are new to me and I am impressed with the music generally. Definitely a nice one to grab and have on while you’re at work or whatever!

Artists include Ele-Mental, Fee*Koh, Manual Bonrod, New Sirius Project, Kane, Pablo Dali, Jaek, Heuristic, Anubis Complex, Audio Cephlon and Plastik Scene.

T Cells

“The exciting live band to come out of Perth have been described as U2 meets Fear Factory. It’s a heavy rock rhythms collision with pop vocal sensibilities.”

Saw these guys a few times at The Lookout on lineups with bands like Mutt, Caddis, Greenroom, FSD etc.

I don’t know a lot about them so here’s the music. This is their full length called ‘Impact’.

‘In Season’ Compilation

Thanks for Dave Fallon for this very obscure compilation.

It was released in 1996 and is comprised of young bands from the Swan View area. Not many of these names are familiar to me and I’d not seen this before. Who remembers any of these guys?
