Monsters 4/5 A great track! Garage rock with upbeat elements of the Hives or the Arctic Monkeys. I like this a lot. A few good hooks, though it's not quite a killer tune yet. The recording is good, but the mix gets a bit sloppy towards the end. A good song and signs of much promise in these guys. 25 July 2006 Chris Scaddan Triple J the iNKREMENTS If bizarre lyrics and infectious hooks are your bag then get your calculator down to an iNKREMENTS gig and watch them wobble and sway behind there instruments breaking strings, sticks glasses and hearts.! In 2007, even after so much positive feedback and such great responses, we have unfortunately decided to call it a day. We are all moving on to bigger and better things, Dan and Adrian have begun work on a rocking new band and recording, While Ben has begun work in new band 'High Fangs' We're all set to take on the world and rock your socks off! so keep an ear out the iNKREMENTS
It's time for some garage rock you can dance to! Melbourne band, the iNKREMENTS, play high energy, upbeat tunes with great riffs.
Describe your music
It's as though someone took a 60's garage band, added a dash of Swedish punk, and then ran it over with a bag of hooks scattering cryptic lyrics all over the floor, and it wailed in delight and anger all at once.

What's the best thing about being in The inKREMENTS?
Our incredible punctuality and general sharing of love for music, our tastes are eccelctic, but we get on that stage together and we are a unit... The best thing about being in The iNKREMENTS though is when we do a gig and someone gets something out of our songs, we love hearing people's take on our influences as well.
...and the worst?
Greed, music is for the people.
What's your dream gig? Where would you perform and who's in the audience?
Isle of Wight, or T in the parl I would love to support any of our influences, trouble is most choked on there own or someone elses vomit in the mid to late sixties. We would love to play at home though, on a big stage, possibly Big Day Out.
What have you got planned for the future?
A collection of Jaguars and Hovercrafts, shorter term though is recording our own Album, we are currently putting a studio together to cut some songs for an EP intially...
