Found this poster on the ding dong myspace, nice. Was going to see a gig there, but due to the internet my adventure couldn't take place as time was wasted.
As per the poster on Saturday 1st Sep 2007 at 8pm Young Breeder play with Russian Roulettes, The Lady Boys, Deloreans and Dj Lovepuff.
This track is taken off a 2 track Young Breeder Demo. Very anthemic rock tune from an Aussie act, and with a hint of the cult.

I haven't ventured into the old bar for a while, probably not since back in 2001 when a work mate used to play there religiously at there open mic night.
It still has all the second hand furniture, which can be annoying and also comfortable. Makes it hard to find a seat if you come in late with all these old kitchen tables and chair around, especially if your a single loner (like myself) or a group of people, where to you stand when there is no room, room that is taken up by tables. Maybe customized furniture would be the answer, but maybe that would make it not look as cool, but a least you could fit more people in more comfortably.
I think the first band was I=IT (please correct me if I'm wrong), they're a duo, who play this dark electro stuff, one guy on keyboards and the other on vocals. The next group that came up was Young Husband who play this Rock (Motor Rock maybe you could call it that) with female vocals, which totally change the mood of the place. Two extremely different groups back to back. They also reminded me of something that came of the 90's which I can't remember all that well.
Did however miss out on Goofang, I think the trendy kids with there new found fondness of flannel was giving me a headache.

Candice Monique and Mikey Chan at the Empress, $4
Candice Monique really reminds me of the like of Jill Scott and Lauryn Hill. Gig was kind of out of place, and would of been more suited in a classy bar/restaurant rather than a dirty pub with expensive food (whats with that anyway? $17 for a Palma?).
Candice Monique - Soul Dance

The Skipping Girl Sign is a land mark in Melbourne town, and can be found off Victoria Street in the inner Melbourne Suburb of Abbotsford. Skipping Girl Vinegar (Who's namesake comes from this sign which is listed under the National Heritage Trust) are an Independent Roots alt-acoustic four piece with a dash of pop.
There playing at the Corner Hotel with Shout Out Louds(Sweden) this Friday 24th August, then back in September to play the Toff in Town in Melbourne CBD for a single launch.
I'm not a big fan of the whole Roots thing but track 'One Chance' is leaning towards pop, with some hand clapping and a banjo.

Durring MIFF I managed to catch a couple of film Fido(Zombie Comedy Horror set a 50's retro USA), Paprika(Japanese Animation - is it real or a dream), & Scott Walker: 30 Century Man.
The Scott Walker Documentary was one of the Music films I wanted to see, but unfortunately missed out on Control, John Peel's Record Box and Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten, but these were all sold out at extraordinary pace.
30 Centuary Man was a real insight into how he makes his music, where he came from, where he is now and his inspirations. Got a little sleepy at the end though. Went from his Walker Brother, Scot Albums and went into his ham thumping nine inch nail like tunes. You can find an MP3 interview with the director here either at 41.4mb(192kbps) or 12.4mb(64kbps), which was on the Brian Wise show Off The Record on RRR.
Also I saw Fido and Parika at the RMIT capital theatre, beautiful place but I felt big up the back was way to far away, my recommendation is to get nice and close on most films you see there.
