Live Concerts

  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. OK, these guys had us when we learned that, amongst their many achievements, they once doubled as Roky Erickson’s backing band. The fact that the famed leader of the legendary 60s psychedelic band Thirteenth Floor Elevators would choose these guys to back him is frankly no great surprise - they’ve carved out an impressive career as one of the great American psychedelic bands in their own right. Taking their name from a Velvet Underground song (The Black Angel’s Death Song), they’ve toured over the years with the likes of The Black Keys, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Queens of the Soneage and even Australia’s own Wolfmother - so that should give you an idea. We caught this show in 2011 after the release of their highly regarded third album ‘Phosphene Dream’.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. 2010. These New Jersey punksters are legendary. What more do you need to know? This show comes from a 2010 tour of Australia following the release of their album ‘Ghosts on the Boardwalk’. Get jumping!  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. With news that The Bravery has recently reformed after a decade or more on ‘hiatus’, we thought it was time to dig back into our catalogue and profile this great show from 2008. Formed in New York in 2003, they released three studio albums before packing their kit away in 2011. They charted on both sides of the Atlantic with their synthesis of indie rock and electronica. This show followed the release of their great second album ‘The Sun and The Moon’ which contained their gold status single ‘Believe’ featured in this show. Take it away fellas!  
  • Live at Metro Theatre, Sydney. The Bronx is an American hardcore punk band from Los Angeles formed in 2002. The band's lineup in 2009 when we captured this full tilt show consisted of vocalist Matt Caughthran, guitarists Joby J. Ford and Ken Horne, bass guitarist Brad Magers, and drummer Jorma Vik.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. On a magical night in Sydney back in 2011, The Church performed three of their greatest albums in one great show – ‘Starfish’, ‘Priest=Aura’ and the modern masterpiece that is ‘Untitled #23’. We’ve already published the Starfish and Untitled #23 sets, and this release of ‘Priest=Aura’ completes the night. Steve Kilbey, the band’s songwriter and front man was rightly proud of this album describing it in his autobiography an “undisputed masterpiece” – we very much agree.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. The Church continue to redefine what it is to be a band, evolving without compromise into one of the world’s most acknowledged rock groups. Guiding the band though the ‘80s and ‘90s with a combination of chemistry, talent and a desire for excellence, their unique and distinctive guitar sounds and thought-provoking lyrics have succeeded in inspiring both the audience and the critics’ imagination the world over. Following their induction into the 2010 ARIA Hall Of Fame, they were able to reflect on their huge body of work as they continued to pursue their artistic aspirations both live and in the studio. On this night in 2011, they performed 3 albums in full - their then current release Untitled #23 as well as two of their slam dunk classics, Priest=Aura and Starfish. This is the Starfish set - watch for the others soon. Sublime.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. If you’ve already watched their Starfish set on Moshcam (featuring Under the Milky Way, a stone cold classic if ever there was one), you’ll be aware that in 2011 we captured this incomparable band playing three of their most iconic albums in full – Starfish, Priest = Aura and this one: 2009′s lush, organic masterpiece Untitled #23 presented here in all its glory. Rolling Stone Australia gave this album an unprecedented 5 star review – “a stunningly ambitious album of shimmering rock”. In the USA, Rolling Stone commented that the band had “truly reaffirmed themselves as one of the world’s leading melodic art-rock bands”. If you don’t know them, you’re in for a treat – and if you do know them, well then you won’t be disappointed!  
  • Live at the Angel Place Recital Hall, Sydney. The Cinematic Orchestra is a British-based jazz and electronic outfit, created in the late 1990s by Jason Swinscoe. In both live and studio context, The Cinematic Orchestra employ a live band which improvises along with a turntablist and electronic elements such as samples provided by Swinscoe. In their studio releases Swinscoe will often remix the live source material to produce a finished product that is seamless combination of live jazz improvisation with electronics, such that it is difficult to tell where the improvisation ends and the production begins. This great show in a fabulous venue in Sydney dates from 2009.  
  • Live at The Troxy, London. Described earlier in their career by Q magazine as the biggest cult band in the world (huh?), The Cribs are an English three-piece indie rock band that emerged in 2001. With 4 UK Top 10 albums under their belt, they are still going strong despite label and management disputes in recent years and a COVID induced hiatus from live performance. This show was recorded in London during 2012 around the time of their fifth album ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’ (which made it to #8 on NME’s end of year list) and this show, not surprisingly, features many of the songs off that album including singles ‘Glitters Like Gold’ and ‘Chi-Town’.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Initially an instrumental band with a strong 'surf' sound, they eventually joined forces with vocalist Tex Perkins and became one of Australia's most successful bands, winning major awards including multiple ARIA Awards in 1993. They were still firing on all cylinders when we captured one of their all too infrequent shows in 2008.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. All killer, no filler! A cracking show zooming to you straight from 2008  
  • Live at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne. We love these guys - definitely a band that needs no introduction (who doesn't know Bohemian Like You just for starters??). We were thrilled to be able to capture them recently when they joined the lineup for the Hoodoo Gurus 40th anniversary shows. Turn up the volume with this hit heavy set from the fabulous Dandys.  
  • Live at Manning Bar, Sydney. One of the hardest rocking bands to ever come out of New Zealand, The Datsuns were lauded (quite rightly so!) by the UK music press in particular during the early 2000s (including winning NME’s Best Live Band for 2002). Their second album was produced by Zeppelin legend John Paul Jones no less! Captured here in all their glory during a 2008 Australian tour to support their fourth album, ‘Headstunts’ (an anagram of The Datsuns), this will force you to sit up and take notice. We thought they’d gone forever, but we were thrilled to see them release a new album ‘Eye to Eye’ in 2021.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Hailing from Portland, Oregon The Decemberists made their first Australian pilgrimage in 2010 on the back of their 2009 release (The Hazards Of Love), the follow-up to their 2006 breakthrough, The Crane Wife - and we were there to capture it. From their debut, Castaways and Cutouts, in 2002, and its follow-up Her Majesty only a year later, the band have been defined by their eccentricities from the beginning. Producing 18-minute songs, tangled narratives, and featuring accordions, cellos, Wurlitzers, bouzoukis and hurdy-gurdies, The Decemberists are no ordinary band.  
  • Live at the No Sleep ‘Til festival, Sydney. This legendary LA hard core punk band emerged in the late 70s and have provided obvious inspiration to a range of well-known bands that followed in their wake like Blink 182, Green Day and The Offspring. They’re still going strong today despite the loss of some core members along the way (and many ‘breaks’ given singer Milo Aukerman’s other job as a biologist!). We caught this show back in 2010 when they reunited for a brief run of shows amongst their various other commitments. Their most recent album ‘9th & Walnut’ was released in 2021.  
  • Live at KOKO, London. New York City's The Drums are half jangly '80s-style indie pop and half twangy '50s-inspired surf rock. One night in 2015, they tore through London's KOKO like we've never seen before.
