Over the past decade LA DISPUTE has been responsible for some of the most uncompromising, experimental music and have carved a reputation as one of post-hardcore’s most singular voices.
From their 2008 debut (in their current formation) Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair, to 2011’s Wildlife, to 2015’s Rooms of the House, LA DISPUTE have continually pushed themselves to find new ways to portray some of the most difficult and universally affecting subject matters and have developed a sound that, while constantly evolving, is unmistakably theirs.

Providing the most diverse show on the planet, Fish Out of Water continues to keep people guessing and more importantly, keep people dancing. The rock takes you back to a day where musicians did really rock and the hip-hop is a conscious flow over a rhythmic hip dropping beat. The reggae has a heavy ska influence but can also be a “one drop” smoke anthem. And the funk? Well the funk is the best part about F.O.W. Both cousins play a mean slap bass.
They have been coming to Australia since 2011 and this will mark their 5th Aussie tour starting in April 2019. Local drummer/percussionist, Sean Keenan (from roots gurus, Bearfoot) will be fulfilling drumming duties for F.O.W. on this tour, bringing his own unique funky flavour to the table. With over thirty shows to play in two months time, the Fish will be busy down under, including a weekend in WA.
Catch FOW locally at the Yandina Hotel on April 5 from 8.30pm for a free show.Read More

Settling in for the evening with Ayla, expect to hear favourites from her 2018 EP 'Let's Talk Monday' including 'Like the Other Kids', alongside 2015 hit 'Wish I Was' - which featured in the Top 15 most played on triple j of that year - and latest 'Small Talk' which topped the AMRAP Community Radio Chart.
Follow the rabbit’s track with Bearfoot, as the Sunshine Coast roots gurus "Luminate" your life with their new single, reminiscing of the time spent in their own wonderland.

Moody and smooth, Summer Holiday is the first taste of the new band, and a perfect introduction – displaying all of the sophistication and nuance that can be produced by the Pete Allan Collective.Read More

'Freezing In The Sun’ is a taste of what is yet to come from Clowns. The new single sees bright and jangly guitars juxtaposed with politicised lyrics of discontent. The lyrics demanding ‘tell me what the fuck I am supposed to do, when I know my taxes are paying for kids to be held in Nauru’, coupled with the dreamy and mesmerising chorus sung by bassist Hanny J.Read More
