Woollen Kits @ The John Curtin Hotel (20-01-2012)

Supported by The UV Race, Dead Farmers and Loose Grip.

I know a few people were eagerly awaiting these recordings, sorry for the delay. What a great line up and great sets all round! Enjoy!

Loose Grip
I arrived just minutes before Brisbane's Loose Grip took the stage, or rather, the floor in front of the stage, so I was lucky to be able to record this but glad I could. Here's all 11 minutes and 48 seconds of their blistering set, into which they packed 7 songs, most of which are available on their excellent debut 7" available on Bedroom Suck Records.

1. Cereal
2. Baked
3. Light Me Up
4. Maccy D's
7. Wipe The Slate

Dead Farmers
Up next were Sydney band Dead Farmers who I was looking forward to seeing for the first time having heard plenty of praise for their live shows, all of which was justified. Tore through a set of straight forward rock with tons of energy, and the dual vocals work really well. Look forward to next time they're down here.

3. Never Enough
4. Spit Shine
6. Down Low
8. Out The Door

Dead Farmers MP3

The UV Race
Their first show in awhile and the first time I'd seen them in just over a year, when they supported Thee Oh Sees last January. Always fun live and this set was no exception.

2. Set Sail To Fail
5. Burn That Cat
6. Lost My Way
8. The UV Know

The UV Race MP3

Woollen Kits
I've lost count of the times I've seen Woollen Kits now, and they only get better every time. Tonight was all about launching their self-titled debut LP which is available now on R.I.P Society and at all good record stores. Do yourself a favour and get it! Yet another great set to end an excellent night.

1. -
2. Out Of Whack
3. Down Your Street
4. Shelley
5. Always
6. Sloan
7. I Love You
8. Susannah
