Thought I would ask you all a favour and see if you wouldn’t mind clicking through to the song “The Messenger” on the triple j Unearthed site. triple j is a state wide radio station here in Australia. It helps promote new and unique bands. It helped bring Silverchair and many many others out of obscurity.
. . . . Having recently shared his magic with the Big Sound showcase attendees, raved-about Brissie moodytronica maestro Hunz leads his powerhouse rhythm section (featuring drums prodigy Richie Young) into another riveting performance. A passionate frontman as well as a ridiculously talented singer, songwriter and sonic architect, the erstwhile Hans Van Vliet is a familiar welcome sight as he attacks both his mic and modified synth, every syllable, note and move soaked with emotion and sheer intensity. Several choice tracks from acclaimed albums When Victims Fight and this year’s marvellous Thoughts That Move get an airing, Long Road, Soon, Soon and You Said Hello all packing wistful keyboard arrangements and humungous hooks. During the second half of the show, a laptop glitch prompts the digi-soul man to skip a song from the setlist, apologise to the crowd and bow out with another spirited vocal/musical display. My post-gig recommendation to the uninitiated? If you haven’t seen Hunz yet, by all means do it – you’ll be blown away. . . .
Club Blink with Yeo was AWESOME. The lights made us look super special so it’s worth having a look at it all. Draw the line, You Said Hello and Soon, Soon is there for you to watch. A big thank you to everyone for coming out! Thank you Club Blink!!
Bigsound 2009 is over for the year and although I was very nervous about the performance it all went along with out any major hitches .. phew. Here is a line about me from someone who blogged the 3 day event. Enjoy.
. . . . Finally, I drag myself to new venue X&Y to catch electronic pop act Hunz and leave glad I bothered. Hunz is something that’s borderline oxymoronic: an electronic musician with personality to burn. And burn it he does, during his set I think I smiled almost as much as he did . . .
So you couldn’t make it along to “The Hangar” OR you did and you want to relive the show. Someone has been kind enough (*Cough* Niteshok) to place some videos online. Did I thank everyone for coming out? Thank you!
Usually I post the whole story here but instead I am going to post a link. This is a local Brisbane, Australia blog spot that needs our support so this is possibly the best way we can give it. It is a fantastic review that makes me blush. Thank you!
Notes:Yeo & The Fresh Goods return to Club Blink to headline their own show with the help of Brisbane friendlies Tin Can Radio and Hunz.
Tin Can Radio have a new line-up and a reputation for laying down killer grooves to make you move, while Hunz will stir emotion with their moody textures. Both score extremely high on the songwriting scale.
Yeo & co will do their best to entertain crowds with another blistering set full of hooks, singalongs, hip-hop humour and a breakdown or two.
Set to be a big night of rubbernecking, jumping drunk fun as we play our only headlining set of the year.
Once again, cover is $10, but cheaper ($8) if you mention which band you are coming to see at the door.
