Music Industry Realities: The Challenges of "The Day Job" for the musicians you love

With a rising focus on "dole bludger creatives" and the threats of a tightened Centrelink by our terrible government... not to mention the arts council budget cull you've hopefully heard about (but don't get us started on that)... the AU review is publishing a series of features which highlight the realities of the music industry. In the first part of our new series, we look at how almost all of your favourite Australian artists have shitty (and some, not-so-shitty) day jobs they undertake to support their careers and help bring you the music you love.

Yeo - Bag-O-Items (2011 LP)

One man Brisbane artist Yeo was a happy surprise. Honestly, I had never heard of him before I was given this CD to review, but, like a snoozing cat on my lap (as I also have now), I’m glad it’s here.

Yeo & The Fresh Goods, Tin Can Radio, Hunz - Club 299 (19.09.09)

The music played through 299’s PA is positively deafening on all of the venue’s three levels, while the live sound is only marginally subtler – an obstacle not even helped by my trusty earplugs – however the punishing decibels do little to detract me and fellow music lovers from appreciating tonight’s local talent trifecta.
