PLUS ONE RECORDS SHOWCASE
Oh yes folks. This month is all about the guitar. But that's not all there is.
It's here! Rollerball's Submarine has breached the surface and is training its torpedo sights on stereos across the country. A launch tour is booked in, the lads should be in your neighborhood soon! We had a chat to guitar man Dave Talon about the latest in Rollerball's arsenal...
+1: How has Rollerball's sound evolved with Submarine?
The Texas Tea French Tour is mere weeks away from kicking off and everyone at Plus One headquarters is mightily excited. We had a coffee and a chat with Kate Jacobson to discuss the French language and sad songs...
+1: What's the most important thing to know how to say in French when you're on tour?
+1: Texas Tea have a pair of quite chilling love songs, 'Daredevil's Lament' and 'Ferry Song'. When you're performing them live do you get in the mindset of the characters?
+1: What's the best and worst thing about touring a two piece, gear light band?
+1: What music are you a fan of that Texas Tea fans might be surprised to hear?
|ALSO GOING DOWN
MARY TREMBLES have been cutting a swathe of destruction across the States, playing a cracking showcase set at North By Northwest before pounding New York into rubble, Godzilla style. As we speak they've got their sights set on Los Angeles, before they return home to a hero's welcome and ticker tape parade. Maybe. Skritch will also be playing a solo set along with Smokestack Orchestra bandmate Scarecrow Wallace at the Troubadour on the 5th of August.
GIANTS OF SCIENCE spent an afternoon in the studio recently, laying down some brand new tracks. Also, keep your ears peeled for a live album, recorded recently at the Troubadour!
GIN CLUB'S Ben Salter has hit the European Continent with a vengeance too, playing a couple of solo shows in Stockholm, and is due to join Texas Tea at the Binic Blues & Folk Festival in France in August. If you're stuck down here in the Antipodes, you can catch Mr Adrian Stoyles at a bunch of solo shows around Melbourne this month, including a residency at The Gem.
BLACK MUSTANG have been nominated for a Q Song Award in the alternative category. The award ceremony is on the 11th of August. Fingers crossed! Come along to the Plus One Showcase to show your support! They'll also be playing at the Step Inn on 11th of October with The Stem. It's that band's last ever Queensland show, so get along.
THE SMOKESTACK ORCHESTRA are gearing up to start recording again, with a deluge of new songs waiting to swamp the studio. Expect some more cast iron rhythms and coal fired riffs to be heading your way soon! They'll be playing the In The Flesh Festival at The Fort on the 18th of July, and don't forget, Scarecrow and Skritch will each be playing solo sets at the Troubadour on the 5th of August. And Scarecrow will be guest DJ at the +1 Showcase.
