ASSETSTRIPPER live at Paddockbash 2015(full set)

  Here is the full set that we did at Alyssa's recent Paddockbash. It's a bit of an annual event with no holds barred. Free liquor behind the stage, lush sound and lighting rig(thanks Zen and Tareq) and an illegal bonfire! Firemen visited with a pissy little hose and some paperwork the following morning...out of control fires have been a real danger up here in the past.
  Bands came from up north, west and right here to get drunk and party out on the farm at Whittlesea, Victoria. No sleep until the next day or so......you get the idea. I have to thank Alyssa for repeatedly hosting this amazing event on her property and bringing together some amazing acts. She's a repeat offender of awesomeness!!
 This recording may be a bit blown out in places(but not so much as the last concert I posted). My suggestion is to have a couple of your favourite beers on hand and turn the stereo up.
  Live and whinging in the tent....
  (I have forgotten who took this picture of us so if you know fill me in and I'll put your credits up)

ASSETSTRIPPER "Alive and Complaining"

 Here's three tracks recorded live at Dane Certificate's Magic Shop on the 10th July 2015 when we supported excellent Tasmanian band the Howling Gruel.  I decided to put only these three tracks up as the rest of the set was a bit lame......also expect a lot of distortion as my sound mixing skills are very elementary, although  I reckon all the oscillating bass frequencies add to the rhythm.
 Assetstripper is my current brand of band and features Peter James on drums, Breeze Powell on bass and myself(Lynton) on vocals/guitar and samples. It's really just a vehicle for one great sonic whinge!
 The pics were taken by Stuart Page(top) and Matt Kennedy(bottom) at our friend Alyssa McBain's horse shed out in Whittlesea,Victoria.
 Recorded on Zoom H2N and fucked up further with Protools.

Into The Void live at the Wunderbar,Lyttelton, Christchurch 14/06/14

 The first time I saw Into The Void was back in 1993 when I was eighteen and had just embarked upon my flunked out studies at Canterbury University. I used to get drunk on three pints of DB Draught and would feel like I was committing a crime every(and it wasn't many) time I went to the bar to spend my measly student allowance.....anyhow I learnt a few things there and quite a few things since....
 I gotta say that the Void are one of the only bands I still like from way back then and it's a bit of a religious pilgrimage for me to see them-they have lasted the distance thus far. When they're not damaging their cochlea's these gents kill time by selling records, loaning books, etching, nursing and making modern art.
 This is not the whole concert; just my favourites including a few from their first album put out by Frying Nun Records and some very new numbers that I enjoyed on the night....
 Have a listen!
