A LAST-MINUTE PLEA TO APATHETIC VOTERS…

WHY WE SHOULD KEEP OUR SHITTY FLAG FOR NOW

by Patchy Drizzle

Basically the choice we have been left with is whether or not to remove a symbol of our colonial ties and replace it with the logo of a sports team. It’s a decision that inspires in me nothing but indifference and boredom. But that’s no reason not to vote in the referendum!


The pro-change campaign ad raises some valid points, such as “the flag should reflect the vibrancy and interesting nature of the people that we are” (Gary McCormick) and “I don’t want my three grandchildren to grow up under a colonial symbol” (Dame Jenny Shipley). I agree we should change it, but not yet, not like this.

SC co-founder and legendary dude, Matt Faisandier (The Convoy/Akaname/Ornithologist), has officially launched an incredible studio/rehearsal space on the site of an old mushroom farm in North Coburg, Melbourne! It goes by the name, Magnet.

Taking inspiration from the not-for-profit Lentil as Anything restaurants, this month they are trialing a ‘pay-as-you-feel’ model from 11am-5pm Fridays. Seriously, that means you can pay whatever you like to mess around in a nice room with a P.A!! So if you’re in need of a space in Melbourne, don’t wait > BOOK ONLINE HERE!

Seth Frightening on RNZ

Seth Frightening, aka Sean Kelly, played a few live tracks from his new album, But We Love Our Brothers and Sisters, and spoke with Radio New Zealand Music 101‘s Zac Arnold last weekend.

Check out the great live recordings and an interview covering the usual topics: blood, death, chaos, the saviouristic properties of the acoustic guitar and the coolness of kindness, etc: www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/nat-music/audio/20173477/seth-frightening-in-session

Click here to stream & download the album which has received some glowing reviews such as this one on Vanguard Red Magazine: “…positively overflowing with beautifully surreal and exploratory New Weird New Zealand folk rock compositions. With his guitar playing, vocal delivery and overall arrangements, Seth has that “it” quality that only matters because we hear it so rarely.”
