"A really solid, unadorned and (almost) unhip indie-rock album. These are difficult to make and they made one." This is actually oneof the greatest compliments we could get. Thanks to Ian's 50 words or less 2014 wrap up at TheVine.com.au
Come be unhip with us and hip with The Stress Of Leisure and Workshop tomorrow night at Black Bear Lodge.
People of Australia. Go to see Cam's other (and best) band Ghost Notes play in your town. If you ever wished you saw Dirty Three in a 100 capacity room and have since suffered severe 'seriously, what the fuck was I thinking-itus' for not doing it because there was something on telly that night, be prepared for deja vu in a couple of years if you don't see these dudes.
New Year's Eve again.Time to catalogue your failures into neat little packages and file under 'R' for 'repeat'. Second verse, same as the first. Oh, that, and getting really drunk for long enough so that it doesn't matter!!
Firstly, Merry Xmas to every single one of you and your families. We hope you receive rad presents and have some jolly good times!
One thing we've neglected to tell you is, we are in the running to take out this year's 4ZZZ's Hot 100. You can vote for 'Pedestal Fan' or 'Australia's Most Livable City'.

Let's slam dunk this thing.
Last show of the year tomorrow night, playing w/ bearhug, Step-Panther & Hound.
We're on at 8:30pm and we're only playing brand new songs. Come and check out the new shit that will appear on the next album.
Two early G20 recommendations have been agreed on. It's unanimous, today you should:
1. Buy a copy of Ghost Notes new record 'Moonlight State' on a freshly squished piece of black vinyl (or DL it at 'name your price'), and....
2. COME TO THIS TONIGHT AT The Triffid! W/ screamfeeder, Babaganoüj, Sounds Like Sunset, Tape/Off & the Cathars. I heard Obama wants to hear 'Bridge over Nothing'...
People danced to guitars once. They were good times. Ya just don't see enough of it anymore...
Anyway, screamfeeder are bringing the art of dancing to guitars back, and we're hoping that someone might actually dance to our guitars. The danceability will be spread to Sounds Like Sunset, Babaganoüj & The Cathers.
It's happening on Friday Nov 14 (aka G20 public holiday) at The Triffid.
Yes I'm Leaving Just gave this it's maiden spin at home. These dudes are seriously one of Australia's best live bands and the new record is damn fine. Get ye'self to The Underdog Pub Co Nov 1.
Wondering if we're going to be playing show's again??
Ahhhhh, fear not. We're playing a very rad show w/ Yes I'm Leaving from Sydney at The Underdog Pub Co on Saturday November 1. Bro's & Broette's Roku Music are also playing, and so is Hound.
