• good boy Shirk Life / Plum (LP, £20.75)

    Good Boy are one of Australia’s most exciting young punk bands. Whipsmart, musically adventurous, politically charged and (heaven forbid) a whole lotta fun. Shirk Life is a snapshot of what it’s like to be in your early 20’s living in sun-drenched Brisbane. Sonically, it recalls best of Cloud Nothings, Parquet Courts and Australia’s influential Eddy Current Suppression Ring. A Waste Of 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded) spits a self-explanatory message about the marriage equality plebiscite while Fishing With A Shotgun seethes with frustration about the seeming non-choice between neo-liberal, right-wing and conservative politicians. 1972 VW Superbug is a nostalgic sprawler, exploring regional life through the lens of bored late-night in their hometown of Bundaberg. And Majic Country is an ode to their new hometown of Fortitude Valley. Shirk work. Shirk rent. Shirk responsibilities. Shirk your bank account. Shirk Life. Shirk Life. Also on a limited edition 12” vinyl, packaged as a double EP with their earlier standout EP Plum. Tracks: A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded) / 1972 VW Superbug / Consume, You Yuppy Dogs / Fishing With A Shotgun / Hell In A Handbasket / Majic Country / Sycophant / SOGK / Ya Mum’s Ya Dad / Millie / Poverty Line
