Tom Lyngcoln

Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Brisbane, 18th August 2018

Our first set is by Tom Lyngcoln and as a punter at this festival was one of my most anticipated acts of the line up. Tom Lyngcoln is a stalwart of the Australian music scene as a member of the beloved Nation Blue, Pale Heads and the phenomenal Harmony.  

A veteran of being in bands, a solo artist is something that Tom never intended to be but came out of necessity. He tells the story that he was performing solo shows to keep sharp and was performing songs from his bands. They didn’t really suit a solo performance so he wrote songs to suit a solo act which would then become his debut album Doming Home. An album that is so raw and natural you can hear him walk around the room, its a record that feels alive and his live performance is truly special.

Just a man and a guitar, creating walls of noise before snapping into crushing silence.

Next up we have a blistering set by Brisbane legends Eyes Ninety, who are a band that formed in 2014 and released their debut album, aptly titled ‘Eyes Ninety’, in 2015 through Swashbuckling Hobo Records.

They have been playing around the Brisbane scene and spreading their punk riffs and energetic live set damn everywhere. The group is comprised of Tom, Ben, Rick & Xavier, and they will hit you with waves of garage punk that force you to be scraped off the floor. They finally unleashed the awaited second release in 2018 and that album was the fantastic ‘Glaucoma Chameleon’.

It sounds like Eyes Ninety, but there is still a bit of difference that obviously sits well with the band as they grow and boy is it a fun ride.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 16th of December 2018.
