I have some sad news. I will be posting (even) less on this blog than usual. But this sad cloud has a silver lining. The reason I will be posting less here is because I’ve been welcomed into the open arms of The Community and will, instead, be blogging mostly at their site – http://www.thecommunity.com.au/fg.
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about becoming part of The Community. I’ve blogged about them before but for those that don’t know, The Community is a music and arts collective based in Perth, Australia but with connections to artists across the whole country and internationally. It was founded by Diger Rokwell and Triple M.U.M eight years ago and has since been going from strength to strength. With members such as Mathas, Ourobonic Plague, Marksman, Wisdom2th, The Empty Cup and ASAP I have to admit that I feel a bit outclassed but it’s not competitive or combative so it’s still a cosy fit. The Community defiantly declares that it is “not a crew” but a loose association of active musicians and artists with a communitarian and do-it-yourself attitude (which are not mutually exclusive terms – as any independent artist knows).
On that note, The Community is celebrating its 8th Birthday today from 7:30pm at The Bakery in Northbridge, Perth. So if you’re a Perfian and you’re looking for something to do then come on down. It’ll be a killer night with the likes of The Boost Hero Man, NAIK and DOS4GW with (US emcee) GDP sure to blow the fucking roof off.
Anyway, I will still be dropping in here when I can to talk rubbish about zombie films and audio gear but be sure to sink your claws into my blog at The Community if you want to keep up with the goings on in my world of music. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other artists and musicians on the site – it’s a beautiful thing.
