I was actually sick over the last week (you know, as opposed to faking it to get time off work), and so wasn't able to write reviews of any of the bands I saw. In order to catch up, I will now attempt to give 25 word or less summations of each.
Dynamo - Dangerously close to a wedding band. Dramatically unattractive lead singer. A horn section that looks like they think they're in another room. Destructively bad.
Jay Reatard - Didn't spit on anyone.
The Dirtbombs - Seriously fucking ruled it. Old guys rocking out. When they started into 'Ain't No Sunshine' I could've died. But instead I danced.
The Diamond Sea - Keep getting better. Best band in Melbourne? Certainly up there.
Flesh vs Venom - First three songs were as good as I've ever seen them. Post-technical difficulties they seem grumpy. The new songs sound good.
And, come to think of it, that's about it.
