william street strikers lp

nothing’s going on
*****

William Street Strikers sounds like a comic strip from a 1960s Boys Own Magazine, but it’s really the name of a rocked up four piece Indie rock band with plenty of experience and talent behind it.

Having listened to a few of their previous releases I got the impression that their latest release “Nothing’s […]

*****

max savage lp

little flame
*****

 

Max Savage set aside his band “The False Idols” for a short time to record some stripped back acoustic songs with only occasional support from guitarist Lachlan Ridge on three of the eight songs. This LP “Little Flame” is the result.

songs for little people
*****
