Spring has well and truly sprung folks, and the Plus One crew are coming out of hibernation and shaking off the dust.
Black Mustang and Blackwater Fever's foray into the west was furious, Mary Trembles, Mexico City, Gin Club Texas Tea and Giants of Science flattened the crowd at Brisbane's Sounds of Spring festival, and Smokestack Orchestra and Gin Club and Blackwater Fever have been dug into the studio working of fresh new Weapons of Musical Destruction.
