Brisbane’s crudest crew THE BUSYMEN are back with Tick Tock, a 12″ EP of six snarlin’ 60s punkers. Wreakin’ havoc on the harmonica the caped crusader Screamin’ Stevie (The Hekawis, Screamin Stevies Australia, et al.) pops his head up to give these tracks an extra blast. Busymen live fave & unhinged take on ‘In And Out’ also makes an appearance here! For fans of garage-punk done the right way ‘Tick Tock’ is a real good time and out now via Swashbuckling Hobo Records online shoppe.
1 – Tick Tock
2 – Dangerous
3 – In And Out
4 – Stop Starting Me Baby
5 – Look Out
6 – Don’t Need Your Lovin’ / Milk Cow Blues
We are proud to present the third full length long player from Australia’s most noxious under achievers, The Stinkbugs. On their latest offering ‘Elysian Fields’, the Bugs explore humanity, the after life, Ancient Rome, rejection, love, hate and even the inner workings of the local “Dragster Club”. From the psych tinged title track “Elysian Fields” and “Sun In My Eyes” to the fuzzy paint stripping psycho raunch of “Just A Colour”, The Stinkbugs are in absolute fine form here with new skinsman Rusty Bug keeping everything up.
Available on vinyl as of today via the Swashbuckling Hobo store.
Check out the video for Just A Colour below
The Nudists will be launching ‘Nuder Than Nuder Than Nude‘ over two shows at these Brisbane locations in a couple of weeks time:
FRI 3 MAY @ Phase 4 Records – Fortitude Valley
SUN 5 MAY @ Blutes Bar – Sunday R’N’R BBQ (Afternoon show) – Fortitude Valley
Last time this group got together was over 8 years ago at Flavours Of Scuzz festival so don’t miss this rare opportunity!!
Seminal Robots is the realisation of Mad Macka’s dream to record an album using the same 4 track* that Bruce Springsteen used to record Nebraska (*same model, not exact same unit). Sonically speaking the results are more than serviceable but there’s a lot less yodelling and soapboxing, more skronk and dark humour. Two full band tracks recorded at Hobo HQ head up Sides 1 and 2.
– dead blues
– j. i. p.
– ronald patrique
– newman blues
– rav four king
– the fish
– poor you
GO HERE AND GONE GET LIMITED 12″ PRESS !!!!
The follow-up to 2015’s self-titled album by original Brisbane rock group Eyes Ninety Glaucoma Chameleon sees them continue their approach of not giving a fuck. Letting the gut instincts of their greasy garage punk heritage and many years in the thankless game in countless outfits, Eyes Ninety’s sound continues to mutate into something that makes sense to the band and likewise anyone with a historic perspective on where this music has come from, with no interest in trying to predict or guide where it is heading.
Recorded and released @ Swashbuckling Hobo Records HQ with mixing and mastering by Mikey Young, Glaucoma Chameleon is now available HERE.
Album launch this Friday night at Bloodhound Bar in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, poster below! See you there! Here’s an early album review VIA 4ZZZ FM
**OUT TODAY** the folksinger by Dan Melchior.
We are proud to present the latest offering from the one and only Dan Melchior, the folksinger is a fantastic listen of swampy blues in the key of M.
Limited press of 300 with the first 100 being available on gorgeous blood red vinyl, head over to the folksinger @ hobo to get a first listen and pick up your early bird copy today.
By the mid ’80’s, with the Bjelke-Peterson government in its wretched death throes, playing in a band in Brisbane was an antagonising experience. People were under the hammer and justifiably pissed off. The grass wasn’t green on anyone’s side of the fence. Venues opened up and closed down in the blink of an eye, and the flash of a badge. Ad-hoc gigs were shut down before they even started. Bands simply did not have the wherewithal to release records. Understandably, much bile was spewed forth. Not all of it was flushed away… Swashbuckling Hobo have reached deep beyond the s-bend and managed to scrape off this slice of dank, crusted debris.
30 years later we give you DEATH OF A NUN, two slices of previously unreleased Brisbane punk. Only 150 pressed. GET IT HERE.
