LIVE: Waax, Train Robbers, Born Joy Dead @ Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, 2nd Dec

Another cracking Rare Finds night, topped off with the immaculate Waax

Born Joy Dead

So, I’ve now seen all three parts of the separated Hungry Kids Of Hungary – Rolls Bayce, Sans Parents and finally, Born Joy Dead. It’s worth thebwait too, with the obvious musical skills backing up some spidery and twitchy tunes, mathematical precision and smooth melodies combjned. It’s OK GO with a sense of paranoia, a lot of fun to listen to especially the last one.

Train Robbers

Train Robbers bring some jazzy skills tonight, some silky lines and some shoulder-twitching moves. I’m about as far away from the target demo as it’s actually possible to be, but even I can get my ankles going to this.

Waax

Waax are having a tantrum, a tantrum the size of a bloody big truck, one that sucks you in and throws you up in the air and reminds you that the only things that matter are noise and joy and explosions and totally LOSING YOUR SHIT. In case you don’t get the memo there’s a Pixies cover of “Tame” which is designed to tear you in half. There is not a single second in this set which anyone grown-up would approve of, there is not a single second which shouldn’t be taught in fucking schools. Last track and latest single “This Everything” rips the colour out of our eyeballs like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have decided that you are no longer worthy of life. Scream, grimace, throw, leap. There is literally nothing wrong with this band.
