I don’t know what it is about Brisbane but it would seem as though nearly all of the good garage pop bands are from there. There are definitely a couple here in Sydney (maybe less in Melbourne), but mate, it seems that Brissie is where it’s at.
Thigh Master‘s latest track ‘Goon Punch’ has this crazy pop sensibility – those vocals lines are simple but catchy, the intro actually introduces the track. It’s all pretty simple stuff but executed by a trio of fucking legends who know their way around song craft. The dudes are also heading out on a mini east coast tour starting tonight in Brissie. Details here.
This new single comes out as a split cassette with fellow locals Martyr Privatesa through new Brisbane label Tenth Court (you know that thing I was saying about Brissie before?)
