Episode 33 takes in the eclectic synthethisers of Brisbane artist SCRAPS, playing live on stage at the Primitive Room in Brisbane earlier in 2013. We also revisit the excellent performance of trio SCREAMING MATCH. Come at us, bro!

Kaleidoscopic music from the dawn of the 1980s, Brisbane’s own Scraps has carved out a unique niche within her local music scene. It’s no suprise – she produced quality pop music that just about melts people’s ears and hearts.
Follow up ont he well received Classic Shits 2005-2008 LP, Scraps released the excellent Secret Paradise 7″ on Bedroom Suck in 2012, which included gorgeous sythn-pop numbers like 1982 and Suddenly Yr In My Heart. This live set features everything many people love about Scraps, pulsating drum beats, verbed waves of synth and Scraps’ own understated but sweet vocals.

Rising from the ashes of the much-loved Stag, Drea and Sarah were joined by PhD candidate and buzzsaw guitar wizard Alex to form Screaming Match. They’ve only played a handful of gigs but have already set tongues wagging with their lively performances, catchy riffs and honest tales of suburban malarkey (and Sexpo, yes, Sexpo).
Listen to an interview with Drea from Screaming Match.
This performance was lifted from the band’s support shift for Melbourne’s Harmony when that band toured Brisbane in February 2013 and they sound amazingly good – even though it was the band’s second or third gig. You are urged to tune in to catch this great set.
