  • things will be different cvrThings Will Be Different: A Tribute To Little Murders – Various Artists (Twist Records)

    Tribute records? They used to be all the rage but are they now just a bit naff? It depends on who they’re lauding.

    Little Murders are Australian rock and roll’s – no! don’t say it! – Best Kept Secret. It’s a cliché, for sure, but don’t be afraid. It just means that cloth-eared and gormless cretins don’t know who they are. If you’re one of them, consider yourself admonished and start paying attention.

    First, I’ll get the rant out of the way. I’ve spent more time working with younger bands this year and there seem to be a few issues… 

    Firstly, there are so many new young bands that they can’t find gigs… especially appropriate ones. The King Street strip in Sydney’s Newtown and surrounds has about eight venues and on any given night there are only up to 50 people in each room.
