HEY! OUR DISCOGRAPHY IS FINALLY UP!!
35 songs (mostly unreleased, some never played live) + nice things written by friends + pix + old flyers and other nostalgiabilia
The biggest thank you goes to Shaun tenzenmen who organised this whole thing, put it all together and made it happen. Sorry we took so long… it is in our nature to do so.
You can stream it or download it here. All monies go to Animal Liberation.
!! THANKS FOR ALL THE MEMORIES !!
OHHH, also, there’s an extra song that we didn’t upload cos the quality was bad and the machines were being unhelpful, so it’s here. The recording was done in our jam room with a real piano so it’s 50x better than any time we ever played it live maybe. The song is about sexual assault. There were lyrics but this is an early version so it just has non-committal humming…
Thanks to all the people who are interested and who are saying nice things.
We had a blast playing in the thaw. We met so many great people and made lots of things we were proud of. Thanks to all our friends and all the people in DIY punk communities around Australia & NZ who encouraged us, inspired us, played shows with us or let us play in their DIY spaces, listened to us, bought our CDs & tapes and interviewed us for their zines. Thanks to all the amazing ladies we met who told us they were excited to see us on stage. Thanks for every lovely thing you said to us (or yelled at us) and all your lovely dancing.
Special thanks to Dev Bal & Luka Vitale for being our best supporting cast, Shaun for putting up with our indecision, the Scooter Collective for giving us our first shows and for always supporting us, Mike & Tim Soviet for giving us a chance and recording ‘Bruce Lee’, Jamil Khuri for recording ‘Con Klz’ and ‘When You Keep Secrets…’ and also special thanks to Anna Vo, Jem Witch, Lizzie Nagy, Alex Szorko, Dennis Eucalypt, Stono Caves, Magic Dirt (esp. Dean & Adz), godspeed you! black emperor, Propagandhi, math metal circa 1997-1999, Kathy’s aunty, mi goreng, dad’s screwdriver collection, the person who invented delay pedals & anyone else we have forgotten.
Lots of love,
Stef, Kath & Kat
for the 2 people interested – we have nearly finished with our bandcamp. shaun tenzenmen has been politely annoying us for months. there will be 8 track jams, songs that we loved but could never play live, songs that we forgot about but were awesome, songs that really sucked (nah, we left them off).
i dunno what to say. by now it’s historical, maybe not relevant. but it feels nice to have it all there. there’s pictures, lyrics and extra stuff that we wanted to say about the song/recording/show. i don’t wanna say more cos saying more would probably make me too nostalgic or it would just be cheesy… or it would feel like someone died or something, and that would be too much for what it was haha.
we’ll let you know when it’s officially up and ready to download.
meanwhile, this is some of what we’ve been up to, in pictorial form:
someone give me a picture of kath, far out.
to finish off, here’s a pic from our first show at the annandale (note the goofy grins, dashboard confessional hoodie and epic hairiness):

yep, i typed the details in pastel pink to match with the flier, so that anyone without a bionic eye magnification device or totally on-point colour differentiation skillz will be failed by me on two accounts.
i remember in year 7 or 8 art class we did a test on colours and i didn’t study. we had to define black, and i vaguely remembered learning about black being special and how it was the absorption of light or something, so i wrote “black is when all light is absorbed, even the sun”. we had to trade papers to mark them and the guy who had my paper wasn’t sure if my answer was correct so he read it out to the whole class.
everyone laughed for ages at my answer, including me, cos i didn’t want to give myself away.
ah, the perfect segue to a signoff…
see you at the show?
