Ghost tours of Melbourne

by admin on Jan.28, 2011, under General

For our first post of 2011, we are happy to announce that Ghostdrums is travelling to Melbourne in corporeal form for one show only at the Builders Arms on Friday 11 February.

Ghostdrums’ debut self-titled release made a huge impact in 2010. You may have heard ‘Red Thread’ on FBi or RRR’s Incoming program; or you may have seen apparitions of the single ‘Morning Sun’ as Rage’s Indie Clip of the Week.

Keeping things spooky for his Melbourne show, Ghostdrums joins forces with Mystic Eyes and Aoi and entry is a meagre $8.

Anyone who has seen one of Ghostdrums’ (aka Pete Guazelli’s) live shows can testify to what an excellent live show he puts as a one man band. So we heartily recommend that Melbourne folks come and check it out.

Oh, and happy new year everyone!

LIMV Chillaxing at the Beaufort Street Festival

by admin on Nov.26, 2010, under General

It’s that time of the year when we throw caution to the wind and discount the hell out of our stock to make the task of stocking filling that much easier!

We’ve teamed up with other local publishers dotdotdash, the Rounds Project and the Perth Zine Collective to set up shop in the Slaughterblouse courtyard for the duration of the Beaufort Street Festival. So do come by and have a chat – extra points and negotiable discounts for those that bring breakfast cocktails before midday!

Our friendly walking wig aka hairiest guinea pig we’ve seen will tell you all the deets in the below flyer.

Thanks, you talented bastards

by admin on Jul.27, 2010, under General

Good things seem to happen all at once. Like Ghostdrums’ excellent self-titled EP continuing to find new fans all over the country – with FBi radio in Sydney adding the excellent track ‘Red Thread’ to rotation on the station.

Or like the great news involving Adem K and Ghostdrums, two LIMV artists with recently released albums, who have both been invited to play the RTRfm Radiothon Closing Party on August 28 at the Rosemount Hotel (we highly recommend heading on down to support the good station RTR as well as checking out some awesome bands).

Or like the 6s & 7s getting a 5 star review in the Australian Music Magazine, where the writer concluded their review with ‘When you reach the end of this sonic journey into bliss-pop and doom, you wanna shake this guy’s hand and say “Thanks, you talented bastard!”.

Australia Chooses (The Sentinel Blooze)

by admin on Jul.19, 2010, under Events

The 6s & 7s new album ‘Choose The Sentinel Blooze’ continues to conquer the country! You may have heard the first single ‘Smilin’ on Triple J, where it has been added to rotation, or on FBi, RRRfm or a myriad of other stations where they are also playing tracks off the album on a regular basis.

Street press on the East Coast have also praised the album, saying “It’s a pretty awesomely warped and schizophrenic (not in an obscene ‘crazy, man’ way; in the sense that disparate and often troubled voices interject the songs at times, the tunes changing tack and shifting melodies in condensed, paranoid movements) pop album. There is, as has been suggested, probably some Xiu Xiu in there, as well as The Magnetic Fields, but who cares about references when the result is a strong, uncompromising new Australian voice.” – Adam Curley, The Breakdown (Drum Media, Inpress & Time Off)

And now, the 6s & 7s are happy to announce their impending album launch tour, where they are bringing the 6s & 7s stage show experience (TM) to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. Clear your schedules and mark the dates in your diaries people!

Dates are as follows:

SYDNEY
Thursday 26 August 2010

Melt Bar

with special guests to be announced

MELBOURNE
Friday 27 August 2010

The Workers Club

6s & 7s – The Good Days Roll On

by admin on Jul.19, 2010, under General

6s_and_7s

We’ve had some good days over the past few weeks, and they are mostly related to the amazing behemoth that is Choose the Sentinel Blooze. It’s a love-labour that captures the perfection of Josh Fontaine’s songwriting – why don’t you purchase your very own copy from our online store.

So good times ahoy! This is how the last few weeks have played out…

June 24

It was Katie’s birthday and Smilin’ was played on Home & Hosed!

July 4

Sweet action! Thanks for your support, Triple J. Now that 6s & 7s are infiltrating the auditory canals of the nation, they will soon be journeying to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide to deliver their cacophonous live show between August 26-29. Be sure to check em out!

Choose the Sentinel Blooze out now!

by admin on Jul.04, 2010, under Events, Releases

The 6s & 7s launched their debut album last night, which was a great gig! If you missed it, you missed out. They played the album, start to finish and there was an array of special guests. A galaxy of stars, to use Josh’s Telethon reference! The 6s & 7s had a choir, a whole brass band (trumpet, trombone and tuba), as well as tin whistle, singing saw and banjo and mouth organ on stage (sometimes at the same time).  Plus the supports were all uniformly awesome, as Craig, Split Seconds and The Painkillers are wont to be. What a night!

If you missed out on an album, then you can grab it online for $25 including postage at our web shop right NOW. Otherwise it should be available at all record stores. Demand it’s presence!

We have also put 6s & 7s t-shirts up on the shop too, which are worth checking out. Definitely worth your hard earned dollars.

6s & 7s Choose The Sentinel Blooze

by admin on Jun.29, 2010, under Releases

Yes! It is getting closer! The 6s & 7s debut epic ‘6s & 7s Choose The Sentinel Blooze’ has us all pretty excited. The 6s & 7s have the first single from the album – a brand new track ‘Smilin’ – heading out to the airwaves now, although you can also have a listen on the 6s & 7s myspace for those of you who are too impatient to wait. Plus we have details of the tracklisting and launch to announce and some pretty cover art (see above) to unveil. No, Josh isn’t shooting the birds, he just happens to have a gun in his hand. Honest!

So first things first:

Track listing:

Drunk Liberties
His Eyes
International Roaming Capability
Smilin
Kissing for Science
Holidayz
A Velvet Coma
Empty Cities
(Yr) Fucking Nights
You Will Think of Me
Drunker Liberties

And now for the launch details…

6s & 7s Album Launch
Saturday 3 July

The Rosemount Hotel, North Perth
with support from The Painkillers, Split Seconds and Craig McElhinney

We expect the night to be a choreographed epic, so be there! Pre-sale tickets available at our online shop.

*UPDATE!*

For those who (quite rightly) shun myspace and its horrible interface – you can listen to a new track off the new album right here (and if you like it, you can share it on every possible platform or social networking site you like). It’s one of our favourites from the new album, called Empty Cities.
