A Few Beers and a Chat with Dune Rats

If there’s one thing Dune Rats love, it’s having a damn good time and what better place than on tour with your best mates, plenty of beers and copious debauchery. We were lucky enough to chat with the sufficiently cooked three piece ahead of their massive gig at the Enmore with their best buds, DZ Deathrays and Violent Soho. The boys let us in on some nuggets of narcotic...

The Sinking Teeth Go Deep on the Roots of their Punk Sound and More

I met up with bassist Jules and guitarist/singer Nick at a café in Brunswick on Easter morning to chat about the band, the new single and forthcoming album.

Interview with Roy Roberts

When Greensboro, North Carolina soul-bluesman Roy Roberts was just a kid he tried piano lessons for a while but just couldn't suffer the indignity of it all: 'I'd be sitting playing and it felt sort of '……a girls thing' to me, If you know what I mean.
