Stafford says Some Jerks sound “like Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra pashing in the surf, or like the house band in 'Monster Beach Party'…The album’s real quick – 10 songs in 24 minutes. But hey, albums by the Byrds and Ramones aren’t much longer! We reckon the length is a strength.”

Strange Ways’ glorious mix of pop, ’60s garage and surf, topped by the honeyed vocals of Victoria Watson, is already getting serious attention, with the first single The Hunter being thrashed on community radio 4ZZZ, as well as being spun on Triple J Unearthed as well as on the main station’s Short Fast Loud program.

Pig City Records has launched its website and will be taking pre-orders for Strange Ways later this week. It’s also announced that one of Brisbane’s best-loved performers, Sabrina Lawrie will be releasing her long-awaited first album through the label, after breaking her back in a nasty fall early in 2016.

Both "Strange Ways" and Pig City Records will be launched jointly on October 28 at Black Bear Lodge in Fortitude Valley, with support provided by Sabrina Lawrie and the legendary Mick Medew. Tickets go on sale via Oztix on September 2.
