Dead China Doll + Ghosts Of Television + Nhomea @ Club 77
26/02/2009

It was been a loooong time since I have been into the William St dungeon that is Club 77. Not too much has changed. The sound is still pretty bad, the $3 wine is still poured shamelessly from a goon bag and the clientelle are still pretty cool and young and hip (making me feel old, lame and old).

Oh.. and even though the government has brought in a 'smoking ban' Club 77 hasn't bothered to inforce it just yet. There is a smoking room though which is just like the main bar except smaller and with more smoke. I have now sufficently reached my 2009 quota of nicotine. Productivity!

smoking ban?

Nhomea opened up the night and were damn impressive. Cult like. Carefree whirlwinds of music and beautiful chaos. I am sure I will attribute more fitting words for these guys at some later stage.

Nhomea

They were joined for part of their set by Anthony (Dead China Doll, Damnbuilders, Volcano Rats Of Woman) who 'jammed-on' with a little bit of random saxaphone. Nhomea seem like the kind of band which are open for anyone rushing the stage and joining in. I might bring my Rolan TR 808 to their next show.

Side note: Do Nhomea have the best MySpace page EVER?

Ghosts Of Television

Ghosts of Television had a little bit of time off over summer with the majority of the band sunning it up in the Land Of Thai. The break has served them well with the band attacking their set, playing mostly new songs from their upcoming LP. The new stuff sounded grande BUT it was the face-smashing brilliannce of the track Buzzrd from their last EP Furthest Village From The Sun that was the clear highlight.

Microphone swallowing!!!

Ghosts Of Television

It's no secret that I think Dead China Doll are damn close to being the best band in Sydney.

Dead China Doll

While their performance was crushed under the strong arm of Mr Bad Sound and frontman Eddie's voice sounded uncharacteristically weak, they still had several face-crushingly good moments.

It was clearly visible that the band felt a little uncomfortable, with the terrible sound sucking a lot of the life out of their performance. A damn shame.
