One wonders if Ian Rogers, Alex Gillies and Donavan Miller – the guitar-less godhead of Brisbane three-piece No Anchor – have been in cahoots with local ENT doctors for the past few years. How many eardrums have been perforated with all that doomish bass insanity?

Taking their cues from the likes of The Jesus Lizard, Boris, Melvins and half a dozen sludgy-infested rock groups from the 1980s onwards, No Anchor have slowly but surely built up a cult-like following throughout the antipodes, culminating in 2013’s excellent record, The Golden Bridge.

In this episode of Live Delay, we bring you the group’s pummelling performance from The Waiting Room in Brisbane, May 2013 where they played alongside O and Vassals. Horns up.
