My favourite Perth bands don't necessarily correlate with my favourite live acts... I would rarely listen to a Boys Boys Boys CD but they're incredibly fun in a live setting. Conversely someone like Craig McElhinney is one of the individuals I admire most in the perth scene but his live stuff is much more about sound than sight. Still, I would blow the guy on or off stage anytime.

ok, well I'll list bands i don't manage, even though i feel compelled too, since the reason i look after them in the first place is because of how much i enjoy them..

anyway,
Injured Ninja
The Floors
Abbe May & The Rockin Pneumonia (world class)
Moonlight Wranglers (their launch show was the best show I'd seen in aaaagges, from anyone)
Like Junk
Cease (fuckin broken up? this is just ridiculous)
Boom Pop Pow (I want to duet with their singer, so bad)
Hayley Beth
Project Mayhem
Will Stoker
The Big Old Bears (Time Travelers)


there is a distinct lack of energetic, intense Front men in Perth. throw away your guitars, get someone else to play the songs you write and drive that sonuva bitch on home with a flurry of wildly inappropriate liturgical dance moves and some methodical death glares that get the audience shakin their boots.

I tend to stick with Fremantle mostly, so if you're down that way I'd recommend

The Joe Kings
Justin Walshe Folk Machine
Nugget - This 3 piece put on a helluva show. The bass player's viking hat and kilt is enough to turn heads  :lol:

There's more but I'll add them later.
Did you ever eat Tasty Wheat?
No, but technically, neither did you.

Matt Gresham

I tried that, but it(I) just got me into trouble.

So Laith you're recommending more Laith then?

In that case I think the Perth music scene needs more weather grousing, chip-sandwich munching, pale skinned, mop top wielding tea drinkers like me-self!

I think there should be more deluded people with mental problems like me in Perth music. Albiet at the cost of - Quality control
- Regular and reliable recorded and live output.

I wanna see more orthodox Jewish frontmen too. Let's show these alt-country rockers/hippies what a real beard looks like! Righteous.
