On one of the coldest night in Sydney's history, while the city streets were near dead as people huddled away at home under every blanket they owned. The Oxford Art Factory offered up heat of a different kind as Psuedo Echo hit their stage as part of their Suddenly Silent tour.
When we look back in to Australia's musical past we may not have all the super stars of the US or UK, but we still have our own trail blazers. The musicians who took it all on and were not afraid to experiment. Bands like Pseudo Echo, who looked at the pub rock scene of the time and instead grabbed a makeup brush and some synths to get us all dancing. They are the bands that influenced generations of Australians and who let us jump out of our little pub rock shell to dance on down with the best of them.
In This Issue: Diafrix dropping Pocket Full Of Dreams at the Northcote Social Club, Dubmarine and Jackie Marshall set to close out the Long Player Sessions, Strangers From Now On performing at The Espy and more!

The first 150 punters will recieve digital download cards for the single at the door of each gig, a great incentive for an Pseudo Echo fan to get along!
PSEUDO ECHO - NATIONAL TOUR - AUG/SEPT 2012
It all started in June 1984. Although I could barely function independently as a five-month-old child around the same time, Australian electro-pop group Pseudo Echo were breaking their way into the top of the charts during the release of their debut album, Autumnal Park, in a successful bid to make their presence well known in the music industry, domestically and internationally.
Pseudo Echo took an enthused crowd to Funky Town at the Upstairs Beresford last night. The band played to a nostalgic audience ready for some retro hits from the guys, who delivered and then some. Supported by Die For You. Photos by Kyleigh Pitcher.
