Ships Piano, The Breadmakers and a somewhat understated display from buzz band The UV Race provide an interesting precursor to main event Kelley Stoltz on this the first show of his Australian tour.
The Breadmakers belt out a brand of 50s rock n roll, 60s garage and 70s surf psyche – all the time the swampy pop aesthetic prevalent with Blacktop Brierley’s Louisiana jangly guitars the highlight, and hence making them the pick of the undercards this evening. The honourable mention goes out to The UV Race’s ‘Wodongan Highland Dancer’ who appears on stage and breaks into a spastic ‘kick up your heels’ hoedown the likes that have never been seen before! But it’s not enough to save the uncharacteristically timid performance from the band.
Kelley Stoltz appears along with his ‘Australian’ entourage of serial gig man Julian Wu and Eddy Current Suppression Ring’s Mikey Young who performs a little electric splash on Your Reverie but it’s mostly solo Stoltz who entertains the minimal showing of punters. The witty San Franciscan crafts one clever narrative after the other. Whilst the West Coast sprawl and bouncy, swirling Brian Wilson type shenanigans that he pulls out with full band are missing in favour of more of this slow burn folk and spoken word, tonight is a loose warm up for Stoltz to open his tour and incidentally close out the Workers Club Sundae Workers Series.

I dunno, maybe not. Come see what the fuss is all about with Kelley this Sunday at the Workers Club (cnr of Brunswick and Gertrude streets, Fitzroy), when he plays a solo show joined by the UV’s, The Breadmakers and Ships Piano.
This will be the last UV RACE show until February. Doors at 4pm.

"Melbourne's six-piece proto-punk purveyors The UV Race release their debut self-titled full-length record, produced and engineered by Mikey Young of Ooga Booga and Eddy Current Supression Ring renoun. Demonstrating the restless energy and creative drive that have attracted so many fans to their live shows and 7" singles, the The UV Race LP is a consistently strong and surprising album."
Jolly good show.

On this night our drummer's snare was stolen by someone. If you know someone who recently acquired a silver snare from the Wesley Anne and they look a little smug about it, punch their teeth out and bring them the snare and a necklace with the teeth and we will kick our drummer out of the band and replace him with you.
