the daily meds join the nest #6


The Daily Meds vocal trio strike hard with a special blend of tongue-trickery and not-so-savoury sooth sayery. Three poets who recently took a break from Reverse Polarities, have teamed up with the ultra fresh producer/guitarist extraordinaire Roleo, to mould a pungent and addictive vibe for present and future heads to boogy to.
Saucy stories of dance floor disarray and nonsensical party escapades rouse the crowd into a sweaty frenzy. Manic hype is then juxtaposed with fresh social commentary, metaphysical and moral philosophy and talk of global ascendancy. One man on guitar spinning dirty, dirty beats, two smart lads and one bent soulful diva = your recommended Daily dose of Meds!

Since the bands formation in 2009 they have supported The Thundamentals for 3 consecutive single launches. They also helped to launch the popular Sketch the Rhyme show which is now a national touring success featuring their very own P-Smurf. Independently they have rocked venues such as The Gaelic Club, The Basement, The Abercrombie, The Factory, Oxford Arts Factory, Newtown Fest, Surry Hills Fest, High and Dry, Peats Ridge and many more. No doubt their mutual drive to fuel the party will set them soaring higher than ever in 2010.

Kitty in the Well confirmed for The Nest #4

Kitty in The Well


Born out of a mutual distaste for both modern bohemia and musicianship, the three-piece, Kitty in the Well has been putting the ‘humour’ back in ‘humourless’ for three years now. This highly dysfunctional outfit nevertheless has a knack for bringing its crowds together in something like elation and something like biliousness. The group is known for big, haphazard arrangements, huge voices, and their no-holds-barred approach to genre and instrumentation.

Just announed – lineup for next show Gig #4 SATURDAY DECEMBER 5

Hey folks,

We have just confirmed 2 bands for the next show. More to be announced soon:

On The Stoop

A dangerous uncompromising energy propels this group of Sydney minstrels.
Romance, anguish, exuberance and an overdose of caffeine fuels this group of fantastic Sydney folk rockers.
With original compositions and a tendency towards the subversive, the songs of Serge Stanley and his band On The Stoop bind together infectious Eastern-European rhythms, some exotic Tango, some Balkan madness, all with an irrepressible punk zeal.


Billygoat and the Mongrels


Towards the end of the eighteenth Century, a mysterious society called “the Mongrels” was brought to light in Newtown. The members met at night in a secret chapel, and after infernal orgies at which they paid divine honours and homage to Satan, put on masks likes goats’ heads. After enveloping themselves in long mantles, they went forth in bands to plunder, rob, and destroy all they met with..
