Bio

NEWS 1st July 2012 New singles "The Envoy" and "The Orbital" have been uploaded to Unearthed - available through iTunes and various other sites. Recorded by Dave Hammer at Defwolf Studios and Mastered by Bjorn Engelmann at The Cutting Room. GIGS Monday 16th July 2012 - The Lair, Emergenza Festival - 8:30pm - Vote for Blatherskite! Sunday 15th July 2012 - Sandringham Hotel, Newtown, NSW with Katabasis, Red Bee and Isgahaat - onstage at 7:15pm - a nice early night for us working suckers. Saturday 9th March 2012 - Town Hall Hotel, Newtown, NSW with Nobody Knew They Were Robots and Mish - Free Entry - 8pm How do you choose a name for your art rock band? You go through the dictionary, of course. Guitarist Tim Lim and drummer Brendan Davie got as far as Blatherskite. It’s meaning, to talk shit, seemed an apt description for the tongue-twisting dreams of a pair of darkly rebellious outcasts with an excess of time. Besides that, they liked the irony. It’s a concept which has come to characterize much of what Blatherskite is about: exploring boundaries, examining incongruities and championing the ridiculous (they started a band, didn’t they?) Blatherskite have always bordered on the carnivalesque and this is what gives them their edge. Their evolution to this point has seen many stages; from circus rock to progressive metal, from member to member. Extremes and juxtapositions have always characterized Blatherskite, and they now have the experience and the tools to convey a coherent message. As Sylvia Massy (Engineer/Producer - Tool, System of a Down, Cog) has said of their music, “It’s freaking cool”.
