Southbound 2008

So maybe this is a little premature, like seeing candy canes at your local IGA at the beginning of October, But after the second announcement I just couldn’t wait to get into the forth coming Southbound line-up...


Oh boy, where do I sign up? (..err Mills, Planet, 78’s…) Or you could join the 21st century and purchase yourself and E-Ticket from Sunset Events or Ticketek. And although it may not have quite the same number of huge name bands like- say a festival such as Splendour in the Grass *cough which I attended cough*… it still contains enough awesome bands that any music lover should be frothing over. This can be proven by the fact The Falls Festivals in Lorne, Victoria and Marion Bay, Tassie, which holds pretty much the same line-up to Southbound, have sold out!

So if you haven’t already, mosey on down to the local beats store and forked ova the $ for a ticket… because it’s not really summer holidays until you’ve been Douth, and it’s not really Douth until you’re chilling out listening to good music. So following that logic I made up 5 seconds ago, I expect to be seeing everyone’s tanned chevy chase's down in Busselton on the 5th of Jan '08! (not the 4th- i camped last year...and lets just say it was an experience...i'd like to never have again) And I don’t want to hear about that Summerdayze nonsense being on the next day…have a big glass of harden the fuck up.

So here is a little taster of what’s to come pounding through your tympanic membranes (yeah I Wikipedia-ed that) at this summer’s SB!

Kings Of Leon - My Party (Kenna And Chad Hugo Remix).mp3
Well I assume everyone reading this already has all 3 of KOLs LP, so here’s a nice little remix for youS…

Rebel Motorcycle Club - Not What You Wanted.mp3
Also if you have the patience, watch this clip of Nick Jago (BRMC’s drummer) refusing to leave the stage at the 2003 NME Awards. Very amusing… What’s he on..?

It’s an oldie (by oldie I mean 2005) but a goodie. Can’t go past it! This song is about as colourful as a pack of multi coloured highlighters.

Built To Spill - Conventional Wisdom.mp3
Explosive guitar pop.

José González - Crosses (Stanton Warriors Remix).mp3
Stanton Vs González? No way José…! Alrite that was awful...The song is not.

Midnight Juggernauts - Deadly Venom.mp3
A bit of electro terror from an old (yeah I still mean 2005) EP.

Office Boy makes me feel happy with its updated version of Brazil’s baile funk.

And here- of course, is the humble playlist of top songs an ace remixes of or by the 2008 Southbound Artists. Just a little something from me to you-
