This is 8 songs recorded in 1998 at Dream Rehearsal Rooms by me when Bergerk! was a mobile studio. These guys played dirty distorted rock and I’m pretty sure these songs were never released. Connor left the band pretty soon after this recording and I’m not sure if they found another bass player or not. Luke went on to form Jed Whitey and Jamie went on to drum with Outstation, two amazing rock bands.
I’ve given these songs a good re-mastering so check them out.
Non Intentional Lifeform was born out of the ashes of Botticellis Angels and Rothgar. They relocated to Melbourne so I guess you could question why they’re in this blog. Whatever. They were a strong act and had a hit with the single ‘Living Or Existing’, from the Uisce LP. From what I gather the entire band left to do other things (personality clash perhaps) and Declan Barry continued on with a whole new lineup.
I first remember seeing this band at the campus bands competition, maybe 1997? They were up against Freuds Pillow and other bands I don’t recall. Freuds apparently ‘won’ the round, but pretty much everyone in the crowd thought this was bullshit and went off on the judges demanding FT got a wildcard into the finals. The finals was another eventful night at the Planet which I was also at. I really liked this band and they rocked the shit out of Planet that night. I have no idea who won. Team Jedi maybe?
Anyway, Carl from Flashing Tablet was kind enough to get in touch with us.
My first band was Violet Slide (circa 92/93) which most people have forgotten (I wish I could forget) but we played many gigs supporting The Rainyard.
The other band was Flashing Tablet who garnered a certain degree of notice and notoriety in the mid 90′s to late 90′s.
FT released a CD called ‘Venus Casino’ in 199….7 I think it was….
Here’s some links to FT related stuff that still exists on the web …..to jog the memory…it jogged mine!
dystonia were a killer 3 piece. members were andy and 2 others that i cant remember names it will come to me. i skated in one of their film clips in perth city. they closed off king street carpark and we chased a guy dressed as a monkey (singh) who had a briefcase of banana’s. then went to forrest chase from memory.
Circus murders were made up of Roly Skender, who played in the band Skender, and more recently won the 2008 WAM song of the year as Roly Skender and the Tonics , Mat Cheetham, now with Downsyde, and one of the Horan brothers – other brother Rex horan played with Cinema Prague. The title of the album, West St, refers to a very short street in west perth, where members of the band lived in shared houses, along with members of cinema prague and a number of other bands in the 90s. Highlights of this album: confusion in a spanish blind man, harry’s cafe and Lockjaw
I was indifferent about this band. Saw them a few times at The Lone Star(!!!) with SFD and Storytime. Declan Barry was a crazy fucker on stage, that much I remember. He went onto for NIL and moved to Melbourne.
Here we have an LP and a EP, both 94/5ish?
Incredibly popular Perth band who I don’t need to go on about too much, but they were awesome. Musta seen them 2o times. Considerate recycled cardboard cd packaging. Super quirky funk/punk rock jams. Instantly recognisable and loveable lineup. Yep that was them.
I probably don’t need to write anything here other than my copy of Supercharger still has the $15.95 sticker on it from Trax. It’s been to at least 15 countries with me and looks like I spilt a cup of sick on it at some point.
