This time last year we divulged our top twelve Australian artists and top five international artists to watch over the following twelve months. So we figured now was as good a time as any to have a look back and see how they all fared...
Chicks Who Love Guns' latest video clip for single "Moon Eater" gives a nod to The Breakfast Club and a lesson in why to say no to 'the pot'.
Number 15 Parramatta Road Annandale has been demolished, and its days as a music space are over. But just a few days ago, at the Block Party in its honour, it was a bustle of crowds, market stalls, and of course, bands — all turning up for one last celebration on site. The setlist included She Rex, The Upskirts, Chicks Who Love Guns, Sures, Regular John, and The Preatures, who, with varying degrees of success, provided the entertainment of the day.
We catch up with our good friends in Chicks Who Love Guns to talk about their music, super heroes, the new EP Moon Eater and much, much more...

In the meantime, enjoy the trippy music video for their latest track:
Walking into the venue to have my ears assaulted by a punk cover of Dido wasn’t the best introduction to Sydney based group Chicks Who Love Guns. The band of larrikins seemed to have some hardcore groupies in the crowd, and to their credit they had a fun presence, but their music was not to my taste; their songs all sounded the same, and their front man lacked the cocky bravado necessary to pull off the vibe they were aiming for.
