data.select.party reunite for Christmas treat!

Magical things happen at Christmas. Much as we all sometimes want to be a candy-cane-snapping, bauble-smashing, proper bah-humbug scrooge, there are certain events that just convince us that that jolly fella in a red suit (bold choice) really does have some tricks up his sleeve. We can’t help but think that this year the twinkle in his eye comes from the joy of knowing that a special data.select.party show is happening!

Long Live Freeze the Atlantic (in our minds anyway)

Oh Freeze the Atlantic. Truly one of Alcopop’s! longest-serving, and a bloody magnificent band full of 2 parts Reuben, 1 part Hundred Reasons – and (over the years) several other members from all over.

We kicked off with the Colour by Numbers EP (which came free with some crayons on every sleeve - natch), and in the ensuing years, put out 3 full-length albums, a couple more Eps and a slew of rather attractive shirts.

DZ Deathrays hit no.4 in the Australian Charts

Bloody hell! More like Bloody Lovely though (i suppose), as the new DZ Deathrays album has only gone and hit the top 5 in Australia. I guess it's no surprise as it's absolutely brilliant, but in the very unlikely circumstace you haven't listened to it - please do me a favour and go do it now! 

I first saw this band on the end of the pier at TGE many years ago and they were ripping the room apart - a mass of sweaty bodies having the best time all emboldened with mega-riffs and exceptional explosions of melodic soundscape wonder. I made a vow to myself that night that one day we must sign them, and sign them we have... Finally - for album number 3 'Bloody Lovely' which, conveniently is the best LP yet, and out this very day!! You should definitely listen to it. In fact, go listen to it now. Or buy it on vinyl/CD along with a splendid shirt or two if you're that kinda person
