MOD CON RELEASE VIDEO CLIP FOR NEW SINGLE
Melbourne’s MOD CON have unveiled their new video clip for ‘Do It Right Margo‘.

As recently announced, the new collaborative project of Erica Dunn, Sara Retallick and Raquel Solier, are teaming up with Fair Maiden to release a limited split 7-inch on Poison City Records. They celebrate the release with a co-headline show on Friday 10th November at The Tote Hotel.

When asked about the lyrical content of the track Erica explains:

It contemplates the many hoops we have to jump through to ‘fit in’. I worked for years with newly arrived refugees, and this is a response to the lengths i observed them going to try and get their heads around what ‘being normal’ in Australia was. It’s a call and response between someone who is dictating terms and someone who is asking for acceptance.

Watch the video below.

DAN CRIBB ENLISTS BEC STEVENS ON LATEST SIMPSONS COVER
Perth’s Dan Cribb continues his tribute to The Simpsons with an upbeat rendition of ‘Canyonero‘.

Having teamed up with 12 other guest vocalists over the past year for ‘Worst Tribute Ever‘ (including members of Luca Brasi, Ball Park Music, Polish Club and more), Cribb’s latest tune sees a collaboration with Adelaide singer-songwriter Bec Stevens.

One of Cribb’s longtime pals, Jackson Grealy, also appears in the gang vocal sections and spoken bridge.

Canyonero‘ appears in the 15th episode of season nine, The Last Temptation Of Krust, and was sung by Hank Williams, Jr.

The new release follows Dan Cribb & The Isolated being added to Pennywise and The Bronx’s Fremantle show on Friday 3rd November.

Listen to the latest, and previous covers below.
