Local And/Or General

I'm listening to (a delayed recording of) Local And/Or General (the weekly Melbourne local/live music show on 3RRR); they just played the new Heligoland single, Coming Up For Air; none too shabby, fact244. The show at the Empress this Saturday, with Becus and the amazing Light Music Club, looks set to be good; if I was in town, I'd so be there.

Anyway, I've now got a system of sorts for auto-recording programmes on RRR. Collapse )

Anyway, it's good to hear Melbourne bands again, even though I'm nowhere near staggering-home distance of the band venues of (North) Fitzroy.

Another good thing I heard on Local And/Or General: Holidays On Ice. They're a new band comprised of members of various other bands, including Angie Hart of Frente! (for the Britons in the audience, she's sort of Australia's equivalent of Amelia Fletcher; sort of). They sound like Yo La Tengo crossed with Saint Etienne and a touch of Architecture In Helsinki.

I'm going to have to get their album, Playing Boyfriends and Girlfriends, shipped over by some means.
