Tour cassette. Limited to 77 copies (in keeping with the 77 punk tribute cover art), hand numbered. SOLD OUT.

We’re not going to make anymore of these so download the A side here: A – Old Adage.

The B side is a butchering of a Lost Sounds song (RIP JAY!) recorded live at a show in January. Steal a tape off someone if you really want to hear it or look it up on Reel Muzak blog.

Just got home from Melbourne and Sydney. Played sick gigs with a million ripping bands. Props to every single fucker we played with – Interzone, Gold Tango, UV Race, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys, Zond, Royal Headache, School of Radiant Living, Woollen Kits, Peewee, Straight Arrows, Dead Farmers and Super Wild Horses. Big wristies to Nic Warnock, Chris at Repressed and Al/Dan UV for putting us on these shows and to all gear/couch/floor lenders.

Last show for ages at Beat Route Records this Friday night. Like, really ages. It will be such a killer. Grim Fandango will fill you with more NRG than the massive can of Red Bull Clare just drank. Bermuda will have more of a just-smoked-a-cig-and-got-a-bit-of-a-headspin effect. Our band will hopefully do a good job. Flyer in the post below this one.

Constructive criticism

Subject: The name “Golden Staph”

Hi Tom,

I noticed your event invite at Yah Yah’s and just wanted to drop you a line. I am a PBS 106.7 FM DJ and regularly DJ at Yah Yah’s. I am sure you have the best intentions for your band and music in general, however you should be aware that the name you have selected for your band may not aid in its promotion.

Golden Staph is a serious infection and whilst I am sure you have no intention of making light of a serious disease, some may find use of that name in poor taste.

Just my two cents. All the best for your gig and trip to Melbourne. I attach a link as well –

Kind regards,

Speaking of…
