Melbourne fuzz monsters, YIS, have been kicking it around the traps for a number of years now, bringing their sweaty pysch rock being a staple of the Melbourne music scene since 2009. Made up of brothers Simon, Andrew and Matt (plus non-relative Brownyn) the band released the well-received ‘Kingdom of Fuzz’ in 2011. This set was recorded by Robbie Adams at The Tote in Melbourne in March 2012 and features hit after hit of fuzz-madness, including an excellent version of ‘(I Feel) Repulsed’.

Playing a mixture of krautrock, synthetic beats and the odd bit of post-rock craziness, Sydney’s theHead have existed since 2002 and made up of Ben Turly, Tom Taylor, Scott Herbert and Danny Heifetz. This set was recorded this set way back in 2005 at the Rob Roy Hotel in Melbourne although only featured Scott Herbert and Tom Taylor. Listen out for the ecletic ‘Strawberry Yeti’.
