Violent Soho - Mansfield's finest.

I remember exactly where I was when I heard Violent Soho for the first time...driving along listening to my usual radio station, suddenly my ears are treated to melodic guitar accompanying a grungy voice that aroused my senses & made me pay attention to the sonic explosion that is 'Covered In Chrome' from Violent Soho's third full length album. Wanting more I searched out this raucous, high energy bunch of lads from downtown Mansfield in QLD Australia. 
The Making of 'Saramona Said'
From humble beginnings back in the 90's, Luke Boerdam, James Tidswell, Luke Henery & Michael Richards have stuck together like brothers and produced a rare underground indie rock sound that has a reputation of awesome notoriety within the Aussie music scene. Live shows are outstanding in quality, energy & enthusiasm with crowds often happily out of control in all the excitement. Being privileged enough to have attended several of their performances, I can tell you from personal experience they don't disappoint. Every time these legends set foot onstage, you know it's going to be a wild ride.

The riffs explode into your brain with a sonic pleasure that is unrivaled by some of the best in the business as they destroy the stage with their visceral talent, pleasing all within earshot of the magical tunes produced. You can tell the guys have a staunch dynamic & love to rock out, winning over the crowd every time. As the boys themselves say, they're "just lovin' gettin' a sweat on-stage and stage diving." Get along to the next tour & check 'em out tearing sh*t up on stage or purchase on of their splendid rockin' albums, including the most recent Hungry Ghost from your most accessible music proprietor...also, keep your ears to the ground for a new album anytime in the near future!

Getting Creative on the 'Soul Coast'

What does it mean to be a creative artist? Arts ventures and organisations on the Sunshine Coast are currently growing exponentially. The shift in how our community see and value arts and the role it has to play in our lives is ever snowballing. The creative arts inject fundamental vitality into all aspects of our growing community. In each individuals' creative expression we all gain something. Gathering within this NFP collective, the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance, are artists, educators, innovators and philanthropists alike. Our fascination as humans in everything around us, informs everything we do. Fortunately for us living here on the Sunshine Coast we have this extremely pro active collective whom collaborate regularly to keep the arts alive and thriving, forming a recognisable identity for our generation and those to come.

The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance have done it again with their #juiceandjam breakfast this morning. Encouraging creative enterprise, innovative d…

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
