Christ on a bike! What chances have local bands got with attitudes like this? Yet again Canberra proves to be a bunch of f’n art-snobs.

Kudos to johnboy for supporting them and the local scene, and boo to those who have taken the opportunity to practice their bitching.

On the strength of that clip I’ll be going to see them as soon as I can – and hip hop isn’t even my “thing”.

Dry your eyes, princess. There’s a difference between bitching and objective assessment.

If you like the video and enjoy the music, that’s great. But don’t get bent out of shape because others’ views don’t accord with your own.

This one song/video isn’t my glass of tea; I’m not writing off the group or their repetoire (sp?).

I actually listened to these guys new CD a couple of weeks back and I was impressed.
One of them has a sexy husky voice…

I can’t stand the music, and i think the clip is lame, however, it’s excellent to see local bands getting out there and giving it a go.

BTW, Marji Curran and Adam Hole are playing at Filthys tonight. Get along and see them.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Having read this thread throughout the day with no access to the vision of the clip, I was ready to have a righteously indignant bitch at the nay-sayers, but having just watched the first third of the clip, I have to say I’m slightly underwhelmed.

I’m getting resonances of Year 10 media studies and making five minute films with Super 8 cameras. Not saying that a) I could do better, or b) way less meritorious stuff doesn’t make its way on to rage — too many negatives — there is worse stuff on rage, is what I’m saying. But I’m not about to rush out to see them or buy merch based on the clip.

In my limited experience, there is a lot of Canberra talent that’s had to move to Sydney, Melbourne and OS to make good. And many I know have done good. But you’re always going to have little fish who end up floating belly-up in bigger ponds — Charles Darwin had something to say on topic. Don’t know about “refugee camp for failed Canberra musicians” though.

While I wish we could keep more of our local artists Canberra can be a small pond and the urge to move to Melbourne where there are new audiences plus opportunities for more paid work makes a lot of sense.

Everything you are saying is coming from some sort of magical fantasy land that bears no actual resemblance to Canberra or the arts scene in which we are a part of. I love it!

It’s like all the bands back in America who move out to LA to gain exposure only to spend less time playing music, and more time working in restaurants and snorting coke.

Fitzroy is like a refugee camp for failed Canberra musicians. They should open up a Kingsleys down there.

Sorry, but the clip’s pretty mediocre – of course friends of CP aren’t going to give a useful critique. Do them a favour and tell them the truth: it’s pretty dull. Not having a budget is no excuse. The camera work is downright poor.

The great Canberra cliche – move to Melbourne and become stars!

I think some bands should focus more time working on their music and less time worrying about their image and popularity.

This is still great comedy!

c’mon eyeball, loosen up the collection bowel and tell us what past canberra music has floated your boat.

I used to be a bit fond of the Chicken Okkult and BOCK.

I don’t think BOCK reached their full potential.

(they already have)

But I think we’ve always held on to artists that make the great exodus for at least a few months while they resettle in Melbourne. I will not rant.

New Yeah 6:02 pm 01 Dec 08

I like the new clip. I’ve only heard one of the Casual Projects tunes before (the one with the clip where they are all dirt farmers) and to my ear this new one had tighter chops and more inventive rhyming. Good on youse.

I wonder how long it will be befo they relocate to Melbourne?

Thumper 5:34 pm 01 Dec 08

They’re good.

We’re practicing new material tomorrow night so i won’t be there ;(

Overheard 5:33 pm 01 Dec 08

And the missing words were: Maybe see you (whoever) there.

I should add that, in my opinion, there are some pretty good bands going around. We gigged with Marji Curran and Adam Hole not long ago and they were awesome! And Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens are pretty cool as well.

On topic (well, your topic), Marhi and Adam are at Filthy’s ‘Musical Madness’ tomorrow (Tuesday 2 Dec) night, and I’ve not had the pleasure (despite hearing rave reviews).

There’s some absolute crap as well, but that’s cool, each to their own 😉

Glad to see you’re still hammering away at it in the face of all that, Thumper. Got your demo this morning — looking forward to having a listen.

And if you’re still looking for a rock opera tenor…. * bats eyelids *

Thumper 5:24 pm 01 Dec 08

I think bands slog their guts out because they love to play, not because there is somewhere for them to do it.

You think?

I play in a band and have for many years. There simply are not enough venues for bands to play original material on a regular basis.

Jamming is fun, but playing live is where it’s at.

Doesn’t matter how hard you try, if you can’t get gigs you’ll give up (or form a cover band, no problem getting work doing covers, sadly)

Hadley 5:22 pm 01 Dec 08

how can anyone not like a film clip that is so reminiscent of the classic “Backstreets Back”?

And there’s a Jazz at the Folkus Room page but I just can’t bring the details up at the moment. Any web search should get you there.
