Live Review: sleepmakeswaves + Gay Paris - Adelaide Unibar (29.05.15)

Photo: Stuart Sevastos.

Having missed sleepmakeswaves at Jive the last time they were in Adelaide, I knew I couldn't miss out on seeing them again, as it was quite obvious the momentum generating around their music was only continuing to grow stronger and stronger. They were upgrading venues with each tour, so going from seeing them blow the roof off the small Cranka bandroom back in 2013 to seeing them now performing at the Adelaide Unibar in 2015, was an experience I was glad to have been a part of.

The next stop for sleepmakeswaves was the Rosemount Hotel in Perth where they delivered an awesome show. Supporting them were Gay Paris and Sparkspitter. The one and only Stuart Sevastos was there to bring us these photos!

Gay Paris dominate in taking "The Sackcloth Saint of the Cornfield" around the country - tour continuing through into June!

Gay Paris' new track "The Sackloth Saint of the Cornfield" has already been given a good run at the band's first shows with sleepmakeswaves, hitting venues in Byron and Brisbane over the weekend. Taken from their third album, the awesomely titled Ladies and Gentlemen, May We Present to You: The Dark Arts, the track is this band at their entertaining best; the rhythms are pulsating, the ferocity of the percussion is ever present and the guitars are electrifyingly good. To see a Gay Paris show at any point is always a guaranteed good time, but with this new album very much on its way, it's a particularly sick time to catch the band playing with sounds while refining and reinforcing those strengths fans have come to love about their tunes.

Live Review: Gay Paris - Annandale Hotel, Sydney (07.06.13)

After hitting Australia in the face with a slew of shows from Hobart to Perth and everywhere in between, Gay Paris head back to their stomping ground Sydney mid way through their Aus album tour to perform a show at the Annandale hotel and, as the album title suggests, it was certainly up there as The Last Good Party.

Live Review: Gay Paris - Cherry Bar (04.05.13)

Have you been hearing a loud rumble? Has your house been shaking? Have your thighs been quaking? The end is not nigh, it is just Gay Paris on their national tour in support of their new album The Last Good Party. Stopping by Melbourne rock’n’roll institution Cherry Bar on their quest for total destruction, Gay Paris bring tough, dirty and uncomfortably sexy blue-rock to the panting crowd.

Album Review: Gay Paris - The Last Good Party (2013 LP)

Sydney band Gay Paris deliver fresh, dirty, horn raising, rock n’ roll, in the form of The Last Good Party. The new album drops you right at the devil's door step and what you will hear is nothing but chugging guitar riffs, a tightly balanced rhythm section and off centre, preaching vocals. As you’re only human, you enter the house for what the title suggests, and will probably be the last good party you’ll ever experience.
