Ep 309 – Dog Name and Wonderfuls


Dog Name – Megan Leahy

Dog Name:

Live at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, 17 August 2019

Canberra band Dog Name formed as the solo project of singer/guitarist Eadie Newman, who had previously played in a host of other acts including Bacon Cakes, Passive Smoke, Eadie and the Doodles and Mind Blanks. Having released EPs in 2016 and 2017, the band are currently putting the pieces together for their first album. They journeyed north to Brisbane last year for Sonic Masala Fest at the Greenslopes Bowls Club even though – as you will hear towards the end of this set – the footy was on.

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 17 May 2019

Wonderfuls were first formed in 2004 when cousins Robert Vagg and Danny McGirr moved to Brisbane and started making art and music together. With Vagg chiefly on vocals and McGirr responsible for instrumentation, the duo spent years making a truckload of experimental recordings, though of this early period only four songs were ever released, as the 2011 7″ “PissFist” on Negative Guest List Records.

Subsequent releases stepped away from their initial raw sound, most recently on 2018 album “Voices Like Rain”. It was from this album that most of the songs from this set were drawn.
