(no, not my recent unplanned break from blogging).

Saw “The Break” (playing at Qld Art Gallery) who describe their style as ‘interstellar psychedelic mariachi surf rock’.

Australia’s most innovative and powerful surf rock band is:
Jim Moginie (guitar/theremin/keyboards); Rob Hirst (drums)
Brian Ritchie (bass/vocals); Martin Rotsey (guitar);
Jack Howard (trumpet).

Rob Hirst, Jim Moginie and Martin Rotsey were as awesome as ever (and Brian Ritchie and Jack Howard were pretty awesome too).
