Australian rock and roll veterans Kim Salmon (The Scientists) and Spencer P Jones (Beasts of Bourbon and Paul Kelly & the Coloured Girls) will soon release their first, and perhaps only, album Runaways, due out this Friday, 15th February.
The beginnings of Runaways date back to early 2012 when Salmon and Jones played together at grimy rock stalwart The Old Bar in Melbourne for a month-long residency. During their tenure, the duo developed an assortment of covers both classic, like I Need Somebody by The Stooges, and modern, a la Runaway by Kanye West. The pair also wrote a handful of originals, including bluesy lead single A Bitter Projection, which would go on to form the backbone of Runaways.

FOUR (Acts of Love) was recorded at Grace Lane, North Melbourne and Atlantis Sound, Melbourne and features regular collaborators Rosie Westbrook on double bass and JP Shilo on guitar and violin.

On Golden Rules for Golden People, Pretty & Nice preserve the fizz of youth while finding a way to grow up a little. Rather than slow down, they’ve incorporated a wider range of sounds. The band’s previous efforts excelled by working within a very specific framework, which fell somewhere between the new wave of Elvis Costello’s first […]

Stephen Malkmus’ solo career seems to be settling into a pattern of alternating between skewed, spiky pop albums bearing his lone credit and long, languid collections of jams with the Jicks — as 2005’s Face the Truth belonged to the former category and its 2008 follow-up, Real Emotional Trash, fits neatly into the latter. That’s […]
“Let Me Sing My Song To You” is Larry Jon Wilson’s second album.On this album Larry Jon picks up the tempo a little and frequently gets funky. Best song, is the song “Sheldon Churchyard”, which any Southern Rock fan would find a find. Again, the songs are all top notch, the playing impeccable and the […]
