This guy is one of my favourite photographers at the moment. If you like Joseph szabo's photos you should like this. He is an OG of street photography and has been apart of the magnum photography agency since the 50's. for more.

A (purple) Hazey Weekend.

I am sort of bummed that none of these photos make any sense. I suppose it's appropriate that they're all out of focus. This was my day on the 3rd of May, at Nimbin Mardi Grass. On the road with three spooks. All of these were shot on Ilford HP5+ film, shot at 400ASA through a 20mm lens that may as well have been a toilet roll.


Weed Fairies i love you but you're bringing me down.

This is a Towel Head

What was left from the orange juice man

"Get in the box"

Self Portrait at 9a.m


We were all looking for the boys but they were in the candle factory.



I WANNA BE LIKE MIKE!, oh i mean dan



If I were to say something about this record it is that blotter paper was invented for shit like this.

For The Trendies

I think i'm cool because i play the most obscure songs from the most obscure albums and pass it off as my unattainable musical depth...tripe

Here is some songs/bands on high rotation:

> Blonde Redhead-23
> Wavves - No Hope Kids 
> The Shivers - Just Didnt Need To Know
> The Chills - Pink Frost
> My Bloody Valentine - Soon
> Weezer - Hash Pipe
> Johnny Thunders - Pipeline
> Meat Puppets - Rotten Shame
> The Sonics - Strychnine
> Murder City Devils - Boom Swagger Boom
> The Black Angels - Black Grease
> Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Rise or Fall
> The Rations - Convicts
> Brian Jonestown Massacre - Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth
> Black Lips - I Saw A Ghost (Lean)
> The Jesus & Mary Chain - My Little Underground
> Sonic Youth - Teen Age Riot
> The White Stripes - Bone Broke
> The Crystal Stilts - Converging In The Quiet
> The Black Keys - Psychotic Girl

The Rations? Start Some Hype

Has no drummer, has 3 finished songs, has broken all the strings on the guitars, to poor to purchase new ones, only has one day off a week, spent Rudd money on alcohol, needs Pat Byron to move to Melbourne to drum for him, sounds like Johnny Thunders killing The Sonics, making love to the Murder City Devils ; playing a house party near you soon...

found him

by the looks of it. he shipped to the U.S of A.

The Rations?

This band was started sometime late last year in Melbourne. The lead singer seems to have fallen off the face off the earth. If anyone has seen or heard any news on this man or the band please let us know!

Probably the best band from the southern hemisphere ever. Have a really good Anthology released covering pretty much everything. can find links if anybody likes this.

the avalanches.

while tension has been building over the last few years in anticipation for the sophomore release from the most creative Australian band around today (if they still are(R.I.P Gerling)), they throw reports of sample clearance hold-ups, pepperoni breaking his leg and james de la cruz leaving.
leaving kids like me champing at the bit.
this gets me through though...


apparently it was released in 2000.
you do the math.

Weekend aftermath on Moggill rd.

The smell of daisey's is a cliche i couldn't imagine.
I walk through my front door to have the pong of fart slapping me in the face.
Following the scent through to the kitchen dirty dishes tile the table. Some plates were washed so long ago they are now dirty because they havn't been put away.
Passion fruit is dried crust into the table cloth.
I'm not game to take off my shoes, not because i don't want to get cold toes but because the mushrooms on the floor will stick to the soles of my feet.
I can't shit upstairs because im 90% sure a beer bottle got flushed down the toilet at Elbey's 21st. The plumber's been coming for a month but no one wants to pay him.
The bar heater in the shower rules. I flick it on knowing one day i'll forget to turn it off and probably burn the place down. I thought shower curtains are meant to stop water from hitting the floor but ours looks like a massive swab of aids. But honestly who gives a fuck about that when you have a scientific miracle growing from your floorboards..

lips of fire.

oh yeah and if you don't have flaming lips tickets yet.
don't be a monkey and go get some.maybe braving the rest of the dishwater splendour lineup will be worth it to go see these guys live. i saw 'em 2 years ago in Barcelona. midgets on stage dressed up as santa. naked girls with big spotlights. fireworks. confetti. Coyne in a zorb. way too much fun and a partridge in a pear tree.
shit the playground.
they flipped the fucking script.

dinosaur jr. thought: 'Szabo rulz'. so do we

High Rise Live

High Rise is the name of my favourite Hawkwind song and also more relevant to this post my favourite Japanese Band. This Live record makes every other guitarist ever look like a fuckin' kook.
Very easy to swallow compared to most other influential Japanese Psych bands (Les Rallizes Denudes I'm looking at you) due to there heavy leanings on Hendrix/Cream/MC5.
Basically just one big face-melting psych-punk guitar solo from start to finish.

If you think Psych-punk is The Black Lips listen to this one.

keeping kids off the streets since '81


 Two of my best mates are having a show at nine lives gallery in the Valley soon. Jared takes photos of stuff that really happened and Nicks draws pictures of stuff that really happened in his head but could probably (hopefully) never happen anywhere else.
Jared's photos are on here under his secret alias and  Nick's stuff is just as rulin'. These cunts bong on in a serious way (metaphorically of course) 
so come down and scab (free???) beers and stare at 'arty' girls.

Opening Friday 22nd of may and running for two weeks.. anybody in Brisbane who reads this should go down and buy something because both these cunts are unemployed and Jared owes me for a pair of bad brains chukka and surely its Nick's turn to buy a carton of beer or something. Its going to be really cheap, like they are hardly paying for the rent/pictureframes for this show even if they sell everything. Please come.

Digi Snacks.

Here is some old stuff that i shot off my Canon 30D about two years ago. This camera is now held together by strips of masking tape that stop that battery from falling out when you take a photo.

Eno Download

I honestly don't know where to begin with this guy. I won't say too much. 
Just know; spanning his 24 year 'career' he has recorded over 100 LP's independently, completed more than 2000 paintings, published more volumes of poetry than you've had hot breakfasts and penned 2 novels.He sports Dyslexia pretty well too.

All this doesn't really matter though, when your the most stylish man in Britain.

-Colonial Punk is not dead.

music for airports.

Brian Eno is pretty much god. But in a human kinda form.
If you haven't already got 'Music for Airports' then i don't recommend you do. I demand you fucking do.
And for those not lucky enough to score tickets to 'Scenius' his keynote event at Luminous Festival which he's curating at the Sydney Opera House, then ill tell you what it's like when im fucking ringside on the 29th.
-people say ambient is making a comeback.
that's bullshit.
it never went anywhere.
go get stoned.
