Helta Skelta new 7''

Perth garage punk aficionados have gone and released themselves a new 7'', 2 tracks 'Reds' on the A side, a song seemily about soccer hooligans and on the B side 'Devil's Triangle' a winding middle eastern (or something) instrumental track.

Helta Skelta @ 208

People Problem

People Problem are a newer Perth band that have started playing shows in the last few months, with a demo out and a 7inch on the way through Coffin Cut! To me the sound is very Extortion esque power violence with that electronic guitar feedback stuff added in between tracks. But yeah I don't listen to a hell of a lot of power violence (do people even call it that anymore?) so id have no clue.

Anyway below is a video that I didn't shoot but Hannah Hong did at a recent 208 show

The Choke- Pressure

Perth's own- The Choke have jussssssssst released a 7inch!

I have heard these guys as being described as a mix between Wipers and Sonic Youth but with female vocals (ie scuzzy post punk) and i wouldnt say that is all that far removed. What you get here is 2 tracks of the bands best recording output yet, cased in some terrific artwork- win win all around really!
You can pick up a copy at the launch show
