Prick those ears folks, Live Delay Episode 39 is nigh and it’s a night of outstanding rocking and rolling featuring the manic chainsaw rock of PER PURPOSE and the psych pop of MERE WOMEN.

Recorded by Darragh Murray
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at the Black Bear Lodge, 2013.

Live Delay is proud to have finally procured a quality live recording of Brisbane force of nature, Per Purpose. The four (sometimes five) piece have been tearing at eardrums for a few years now and are on the precipice of releasing their debut long player – one that will be something to be reckoned with indeed if this live set is anything to go by.

Composed of Glen Schenau, Mitchell Perkins, Harry Byrne, Joe Alexander and occasionally Josh Watson, this recording comes from their blistering support set when compatriots Beaches visited the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane. With some overlap with early Drones material, Per Purpose have purpose and this is one of the best sets you’re likely to here on Live Delay this year.

Mere Women are Katrina Byrne, Amy Wilson and Flyn McKinnirery, a talented trio from Marrickville, Sydney. They’ve been kicking aorund the scene for a few years now and brought out the well received OLD LIFE in mid-2012 – a noisy, laconic adventures of post-punk with some gothic undertones thrown in for good measure. They’ve got an interesting sound and make for an excellent live group and you should definitely tune in to check out this set from their 2012 Old Life record launch in Sydney. Our good friends FBi radio were on hand to capture the set and it’s via them that we can bring it to your eardrums!
