Splendour in the Grass pre-parties set up for Byron Bay & Brisbane on July 23rd!

The good crew behind Splendour in the Grass want to ensure that you, the festival-goer (or one of the many who missed out on tickets) ease into the Splendour experience this year properly. With three days of live music, Byron Bay romps and deteriorating levels of body hygiene to fill out the 2015 event, what better way to kick things off than a blinder of a party the night before? Whether you're hanging back in Brisbane or rolling into Byron Bay on the 23rd, there are two special pre-parties set up to make sure you head to the North Byron Parklands in the perfect spirits on the 24th.

Live Review: Dune Rats + Cosmic Psychos + Horror My Friend - The Gov, Adelaide (25.06.15)

Having Dune Rats and Cosmic Psychos in Adelaide on a Thursday night can really screw you up - the concept of returning to a full day of work on Friday and then a full weekend while feeling hungover as a dog after one of their shows is horrendous. Deciding to roll sober on this particular night (four previous Dunies experiences having taught me some lessons in the art of navigating hangovers in the past), I turned up at The Gov and became part of a crowd that had no qualms about rising to the occasion - things got messy, sweaty and anarchic quickly.

Ross Knight of the Cosmic Psychos got up during Dune Rats' set and described them as the bastard sons of the bastard fathers. Which about sums it up. The night started fairly reasonably with Adelaide's Horror My Friend but once the Cosmic Psychos played and the Dune Rats hit the stage it descended into anarchy. There was stage invasions, shoeys and the inevitable post shoey spew, madness and mayhem.

Cosmic Psychos teaming up with Dune Rats for Australian tour this June!

Whoever had the idea to get Cosmic Psychos and Dune Rats together for a full Australian tour needs an award, a pat on the back, a huge blunt. All of the above. Total mayhem is expected to ensue when two favourites of the Australian touring circuit take to venues around the country this June. For Dune Rats, the shows will be the first headline gigs they'll be embarking on upon their return from overseas while for the Cosmic Psychos legends, they'll be touring their new album Cum the Raw know this one's going to be hectic.

Live Review: Dune Rats + Thee MVP's - The Old Blue Last, London (06.04.15)

Ever since Dune Rats kicked down the door to the Australian music scene early last year with the release of their self-titled debut LP, the Brisbane trio have been relentless. Backing up national tour after national tour before ending their home turf stint at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, the next logical step was to go scream obscenities through the door of the music scene on the other side of the world. They joined British rockers The Subways on a European tour and are now rocking their own shows across the UK.

New Music Video: Dune Rats "Dalai Lama, Big Banana, Marijuana" (2014)

The Dune Rats are one of my favourite trios. Seriously, melodies and driving beats are their thing. And, not to mention making great film clips. Or parodying great film clips. Either way, it’s cool, and you should totally check it out their brand new one, "Dalai Lama, Big Banana, Marijuana". Watch it now:
