Episode 121: Fat; Tiny Migrants


Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid on the 3rd of May, 2015.

Starting out in 1989 whilst on a short residence in Melbourne, FAT started out as a 3-piece band. Within months, they travelled back to their hometown of Brisbane and started playing as many shows as possible in the burgeoning local scene. During the 90’s, the band kept growing from strength to strength, gaining national radio airplay, playing on some of the country’s largest stages, including a stint on the Big Day Out, and even a APRA nomination for ‘Song Of The Year’ for Man In The Iron Helmet. Towards the end of the 90’s, their record label had folded and overall morale in the band started to wane, so they decided to go into indefinite hiatus. That is until 2012, when they got together for a jam and realized that they still had the fire in them. They released ‘Blue Meets Black’ in 2013 and marked the mighty return of Fat.


Tiny Migrants
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid on the 12th of April, 2015.

Hailing from the wild and ragged Ric’s scene in Brisbane’s late noughties, Tiny Migrants formed as a bit of a supergroup to release some creative steam from all of their respective bands. Between the 5 of them, you get members from Velociraptor, Running Gun Sound, Keep On Dancin’s & Teen Sensations. Although, their surf-garage sound is not too far from the sound of those bands, their rambunctious live show definitely stays within the spirits of the aforementioned bands.
