Farewell Bluejuice, No Vitriol Here


After 13 years of producing loud, ecstatic indie rock, Sydney group Bluejuice announced that they will be breaking up at the end of this year.

I have fond memories of shouting along to their lyrics and jumping around to their songs in my room as a teenager, blasting their tunes in the car on Triple J and seeing them absolutely kill it at ANU O-Week this year.

So we at Vinyl Garden wish Bluejuice all the best and encourage all readers and fellow fans to head along to their Retrospectable Tour, which will accompany a retrospective album!

Here’s to their stellar contribution to the Australian music scene, and to reminding everyone to Act Yr Age!

The Extinction of Another Great: Snakadaktal are Done.


The oh-so-sad news has just broken that Melbourne based band Snakadaktal have decided to call it quits. Having seen them perform an outstanding set only last week at my University bar, this news has come as quite a shock! In Australia Snakadaktal have developed an extraordinary following, with over 48,000 Facebook likes and a career filled with many, many sold out shows. Their mysteriously ghost-like and often haunting sound will be thoroughly missed, but never forgotten! Good luck in your future pursuits!

I don’t think we are alone in thinking that this end has come along “Too Soon”:
