Local Resident Failure are a punk rock band hailing from Newcastle. They'll be taking the stage at the Fat As Butter Festival in Newcastle, as selected by triple j Unearthed.
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
Our music has sometimes been classed as "noise" or "crap", which in some cases is true, but most of the time we take alot of influences from bands who have had to develop their sound from years of experience and new technology throughout the years - bands such as Frenzal Rhomb, NOFX, Lagwagon, Bad Religion and Propagandhi to name a few. We just like crazy, fast, melodic songs that make you want to jump up in your bedroom, grab a hairbrush and romance yourself in the mirror.....or is that just me?
What can the Fat As Butter audience expect from your live show?
Some of the feelings the crowd might experience are as follows: happiness, sadness, laughter, nausia, puberty, headaches, confusion, hunger followed by dissapointment....that our set has finished. Oh, and we'll have shirts for sale too.
Who are you looking forward to seeing at Fat As Butter?
The Hoods, The Spoon, The Tokyo, The Evans, The Juice, The Phrase, Us, and Frenzal.....oh wait, they're not playing. Whoops!!!
What’s coming up in the future?
We're going to record some demos for our debut album, but we have no money so I'm guessing it'll be out in 2011 when we get some cash together. Other than that we'll just be sitting around on our arses waiting for smitty to pay for everything....I swear we'll pay you back this time ;) We'll try and play more shows aswell...I promise.
Australian music is?
F***king awesome, when it's not immitating what is coming out of the states. If it wasn't for triple j, bands like ourselves and every other band in the country wouldn't be getting a chance against the machine that builds corporate bullshit for gullible children to inhale. I'm pretty sure triplej is responsible for breaking every band in this country, even Short Stack. I love those guys, they represent what is real in the industry today. Good hair, good tunes, good makeup. Maybe if our drummer was in that band he might get some 14 year old girl yelling at him, rather than his mum yelling at him to tell him to clean his room....oh wait, she probably does it for him.View Profile Hide Interview
Indie, Punk, Rock (#grunge #punk #alternative #indie #garage #punk rock)
Melbourne trio Dumb Punts serve up punchy as tunes with their loud and raw garage punk.
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
Brent and Seattle moved from Bonny Hills to Melbourne and for the first few months we played in the jungle den (studio shed) and a week later we had to play a show. It all just developed from there.
What's your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
We inspire each other and our mates are big ones too. If you look back at '70s and '80s garage and punk music, especially in Australia, it's pretty inspiring too.
You'll be playing Falls Festival in Lorne. What can punters expect from a Dumb Punts live show?
A good time. That's what we're all about. Party and good vibes. Hopefully a bunch of dancin'.
What's the best advice you've been given and who was it from?
Probably when Mum taught us not to take ourselves too seriously and that if you want something you gotta go and get it.
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
I'd shove some High Voltage - ACDC cause Bon can cure it all.
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Can't go past Daryl with Horses.
You're the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
The Boys Light Up - Australian Crawl.
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
We had a fundraiser show at our place and a bunch of awesome bands played in our basement, that was a sick one.
Tell us about the bands or people in your local music community that inspire you.
We live with and surround ourselves with musos and living in Melbourne means that we spend a bunch of time watching bands and doing music. It's just awesome cause Melbourne is so open to creativity and we are right in there copping that.
What are your plans for 2017?
Release our next 7-inch and then an album hopefully. Tour some more, get overseas and just keep on keeping on.View Profile Hide Interview
