  • BUCKLES 40TH RUN webIt's been four decades since they burst onto the Australian rock and roll scene, and Pismo Beach’s own Psychotic Turnbuckles are descending Down Under for a three-state tour.

    With three albums and a dozen singles and EPs to their credit, the Turnbuckles are still The World Rock and Roll Tag Team Champions and retained their crown on a Japanese tour that included an appearance at the world-famous Tokyo Halloween Ball. 

    The 40 Years Undefeated Tour will take on the Tote in Melbourne on Saturday, June 29 for their only Victorian show, presented by The I-94 Bar.

    Guests on this leg are Sydney’s glam kings Starcrazy and Melbourne’s retro sound champions The Vibrajets.   

  • dangermen launchBrisbane garage mainstays The Dangermen have been scoring airplay for their most recent single "Wrong Train Home" all over the globe, but it's an 18-year-old record from their past that's occupying their time this weekend.

    Swashbuckling Hobo Records is releasing their 2006 CD album “The Dark Place” on vinyl for the first time. It was originally out on CD on fellow Brisbane label MereNoise, in 2008. The LP version features artwork by Rick Chesshire.

    The DangerMen will launch the vinyl edition in style at The Cave Inn in Brisbane this Saturday, supported by Eyes Ninety, The Busymen and Boondall Boys. Doors are at 7pm and it's onloy $15 so be early.

    If you can't or don't make it, the record is available here.
