About

We live in Melbourne and we are screaming across an existential void. Our music is punky rocky alternativy blah blah blah. Lyrics, mood and performance can be intense, sometimes atonal, sometimes a raging tantrum; we hope sometimes maybe sometimes  pretty, aspiring at least for beauty.  How wonderful it can be to feel, but it is even better when one can communicate. This website and the noise (music?) on it is an (attempted) rejection of Sophism.
