In the latest – and greatest – episode of Live Delay, we jump across the pond to check in with New Zealand noise titans, GOD BOWS TO MATH. We also replay an excellent live set from Brisbane ‘strange’ pop band, OLD GROWTH COLA.
GOD BOWS TO MATH
Recorded and mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane.
Taking their name from a song by The Minutemen, Auckland’s God Bows To Math are fairly regular visitors to Australian shores. Proudly DIY, the New Zealand trio have performed their unique noise adventures at over 100 performances during their four year career. Their self-titled debut hits shelves in 2011 and they’ve recently released a new 7inch single in the lead up to their forthcoming sophomore record. This performance from The Waiting Room in Brisbane back in April 2013 shows every angle of this exciting – and noisy – rock band.
Feature interview: Martin Phillips from God Bows To Math.
OLD GROWTH COLA
Recorded by Sky Kirkham.
Mixed by Henry Mills.
Allegedly Brisbane’s ‘strangest’ pop group, Old Growth Cola are a fascinating and not always predictable band who like to indulge in layer weird sounds over traditional pop melodies. It’s a recipe for fascination and Live Delay managed to catch them in their element at the 4ZZZ BaZZar in West End in mid-2012.
