band, Sewers combine the cunning of the Country Teasers, the wonk of
The Fall and a Killdozer scrawl. It’s a stew of Australia’s finest
deadly exports like King Snake Roost, Lubricated Goat, and feedtime.
Sewers ain’t afraid to piss in the pond, keeping the Tasmanian tradition
of inbreeding alive.
was borne unto this wretched world in two, double ‘O’ eight. The band
was originally a two-piece inspired by Uncle Sam’s army of skull music
ala Clockcleaner, Homostupids and the local Brisbane scum talent of
Kitchen’s Floor and Marl Carx. But the band vamoosed before the water
was boiled leaving behind only a demo - Piss Vapours. Song ‘Lineage’
from said demo was resurrected on Negative Guest List sampler ‘Songs of
Negativity 2’ and given the kiss of wax via ‘Wings Over Gabba’ LP (the
best songs of Negativity on NGL). Sewers were originally described by RK
of Terminal Boredom as “a more feral Pheromoans”.
lain dormant, the oil was still bubblin’ away. Eventually it seeped its
way up through the soil to the surface. In mid-2011 the band started
rehearsing sporadically and expanded to the standard four-piece. Some
shows were played and recordings made. Album attempt number one was made
in extreme heat that rivalled the Gobi desert. That session was canned,
two members left and another two replaced them. Invited to go on tour
by Martyr Privates they cobbled together a demo tape, which made small
ripples around the world as far as Spain, USA and the UK. RK weighed in
once again, “ some
hillbilly-punk shit, like Pogues if they were actually as cool as they
looked in 'Straight to Hell' and were actually King Snake Roost and not
The Pogues”, ‘Music is surely rooted in the dirt a la feedtime or 3Toed
Sloth, more outback and dusty grime than swamp-n-muck”. “Excellent
songs, with good titles even,” and the kicker, “These guys had a track
on the NGL comp that wasn't even half as good as any of the songs on
this if I remember right”.
two. Set in stone, the album was to be recorded in February. However,
the singers face met with a slab of sidewalk after being thrown from a
moving cab and the plans were, once again, in the cement mixer. Come
April and despite the extra brain damage accrued, the LP was finally
recorded, accident free, at Alchemix studios in Brisbane by Andrew
Mclellan (who has also been responsible for recording Whores, Psy Ants,
Ruined Fortune). Sewers finally found their home in Homeless (yeah
that’ll never get old) and they called it ‘Hoisted’. ‘Hoisted’ will be out August 8th in a limited pressing of 400 copies only. - HOMELESS RECORDS
