We’re really looking forward to this show. The new single is great and getting some great reviews.
A song that’s full of pent up energy and spark, this fittingly builds into a really epic and arresting thumper.”

Jump up and down and all around! The Bridge Club is bringing you another fantastic night of music with our mates at 4ZZZ!
Local alternative-dance outfit RIVALRY are set to launch their debut EP this weekend at The Bridge Club. MORGAN JOHNSON learns more.
MORGAN JOHNSON: Rivalry – can you tell us about yourselves?
RIVALRY: Rivalry consists of five young chefs that had a dream, a dream to bake. They took a detour at some point and started an alternative-dance band, derailing their career paths, but never their hearts … never their hearts.
MJ: You have an EP launch this week. What’s the recording-to-release process been like for the band?
R: It’s been a long proccess, the EP was recorded in our spare time from March up until a few weeks ago. We’ve all been really busy settling into Brisbane and university so it’s taken a while to finish.We don’t have much money so we tried to be as cost effective as possible with the printing, we saved a lot of trees.
MJ: What’s the appeal in Some Knights and Tramp Fiesta as supports?
R: Our manager linked us to Some Knights’ tunes while we were looking for supports, we all agreed that they sound super cool. There also seems to be a bit of hype about them in the local scene at the moment. I haven’t heard much about Tramp Fiesta but from listening to their stuff they sound like they will bring a sweet vibe to the show.
MJ: How do you plan on making it a memorable evening?
R: There’s going to be explosives, motorbike stunts, and circus features, we’re still figuring out how to fit it all into the venue but I’m sure we can pull it off.
MJ: So what do you make of The Bridge Club as a venue?
R: The venue is sweet, I love all of the old framed portraits and the chandeliers make the place look quite classy. The beers aren’t overpriced which is always a bonus. It reminds me of an old cabin I used to go to on holidays when I lived in the US.
MJ: We’re closing out 2011 soon – how is your dance card looking into 2012?
R: We’re going to extend the EP launch to some more cities in early 2012, and follow it up with another EP not long after that, that’s about all we have planned at the moment!

THE SCRAPES, NOVA SCOTIA, AHEADPHONEHOME and NITE FIELDS on SEPTEMBER 16.
The Scrapes, formed in Brisbane early in 2009, are an unusual duo of feedback drenched guitar and scraping, epic violin. Their music is rooted firmly in the traditions of western classical music while representing an attempt to break the chains of these traditions. It is music that evokes landscapes and acts of nature as well as cerebral landscapes. Inspired equally by composers such as Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass and La Monte Young, sound artists and pioneers of the drone such as Tony Conrad and Spacemen 3, and the dark, demented sounds of the underground of rock music, The Scrapes can be at once immersive and chaotic in a live setting where wild improvisation and high volume come into the fold.
In April 2010 The Scrapes released their debut album Electric Mourning Blues which has since received critical acclaim both in Australia and abroad. The Scrapes toured the East Coast of Australia in April, October and November 2010, funded by Sound Travellers, an initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts. They visited Melbourne, Newcastle, Canberra, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and Lismore (Sound Crucible Festival) performing alongside noted artists such as Mick Turner and Jeffery Wegner. The Scrapes toured once again under the Sound Travellers banner in April 2011.
"Also hugely enjoyable, highly original AND psychically useful is the music of Australian duo The Scrapes, whose fiery epic guitar and abandoned Mithraic fiddle pieces evoke images of lost Keltic lands inundated by the oceans, lost Iberian & Armorican sea peoples and lost times from beyond the beyond. Mostly, violinist Adam Cadell conjures up a fabulous and heathen see-sawing from his machine, kicking up a down home/back porch Henry Flyntian dust that guitarist/axe wielder Ryan Potter orchestrates with apocalyptic power chords and huge crunching rhythms.”
- Julian Cope (www.headheritage.co.uk)
“…Adam Cadell and Ryan Potter compose apocalyptic soundscapes that linger and reverberate through dark gig spaces, and haunt hifi systems…Cadell’s careful, but hauntingly intense violin melodies dwell in the minors, and dance around Potter’s crunchy fretwork. The emotional command that these musicians have over their instruments is evident in their all-instrumental debut - Electric Mourning Blues…And what an appropriate and evocative title it is!”
-Steph Hughes (Triple J Home and Hosed)
