Cut & Paste speaks with Katie and Helen from Love is My Velocity – The Cookbook II and their latest 7″ vinyl release featured on the POPSICLE! bus.
Cut & Paste caught up with the boys from Bliss N Eso back in late 2008 after the final gig on their Flying Colours National Tour. All were pretty worse for wear after a heavy night of drinking from the night before, thankfully Jonathan Notley aka. MC Bliss still had the vocal chords working and controlled much of the interview.
Don’t forget to catch them at Origin on NYE!
Cut & Paste speaks with graphic designer Caroline Roach of Champ + Rosie about her range of knick-knacks featuring robots with hearts, elephants holding balloons and plenty of adorable tiny birds.
Cut & Paste speaks with Erin McGuigan, the creator of MolliPop’s glam rock ’80s meets modern grudge looks.
‘Twas the Sunday before Christmas and the fun and funky of Perth congregated in the Hyde Park parklands for a musical celebration of summer. Seriously Sound System – RTR’s festival of local music was on again!
Hundreds basked in the 35 degree heat of the day drinking in the great tunes and the great Coopers served up to chill us out. The afternoon’s entertainment was comprised of RTR jockeys Rex Monsoon, Mama Cass and Sardi riding the decks, a sprinkle of dope rhymes from Mathas and some electro beats by The Transients, Declan and Gonzo.
At 5 o’clock The Brow Horn Orchestra took to the stage. The 9 piece ska/hip hop outfit consisting of percussion, brass, keys and vocals put on an entertaining show, grabbing the audiences’ attention with their fun music and quirky stage presence (which included partial nudity from Rezide ending up in naught but cock jocks). Taking us into the evening was the beat-mastery of Diger Rockwell, Naik and Micah VS Ben Mac.
With only a couple of hours of the night left, energetic twelve piece band Askari Afrobeat Orchestra took to the stage. This talented collective controlled the dance floor with their afro funk party music. Dan Tha Man and Rok Riley fed the vibe with a fun face-off and capping off the night was The Typhoons. The hip hop act teamed up for their last performance together before MC Able relocates to M-Town. Putting in their all, Able, Galaga, Alley and their army of talented musicians pushed out a kick-ass performance while basking in the audiences’ enthusiasm and appreciation.
RTR did it again – SSS hit the festive nail on the head!
The Astor Theatre in Mt. Lawley finally becomes a music venue. This secret gig in specific was coordinated for Karnivool by MySpace, the week of the release of their second album ‘Sound Awake’. Karnivool gave the all ages crowd a taste for one night only before embarking on the tour nationally.

Track // Craig McElhinney – Improvisation
The first session in the Real to Reel recording studio kicked off at midday with Craig McElhinney improvising seven amazing, looping instrumental tracks. Craig was joined by Tim Loughman (Astral Travel, Golden Staph, amongst others) on bass and drums. They’re playing in front of one of two works kindly loaned by artist Ben Barretto.
As the first day of the Real to Reel Studio kicked into action Cut & Paste popped down to see what the second band of the day had to offer. The six members of Pond dropped in to the studio around 2pm and gave us a taste of their purple syzzurp sound…

In 2008 Grandmaster Roc Raida graced the shores of Perth, Western Australia. While here he sat down for a chat with Cut & Paste.
After we got our communication mixed up Roc Raida ending up waiting for over 45mins in the Rosemount courtyard as we battled peak hour traffic to get there. Luckily Sam Price [aka Naik] was there to chat away to the great man.
Once we arrived Mr. Raida has no ill feelings for the mix up and was one of the most amazing people we had the chance to meet and chat to.
A True Legend.
Rest In Peace.

Due to poor ticket sales the DJ Dexter gig was pulled from Villa Nightclub in November. It was disappointing to say the least, but thanks to a few friends who managed to pull some ropes since Dexter was in town and itching to play, Mr Charlie Bucket was kind enough to give him a slot on Saturday the 17th at The Manor in Leederville.
But it seemed like everything went wrong that night. After being refused entry, with my name on the door, the door bitch not knowing anything about a “DJ Dexter” playing that evening and then being told I wasn’t allowed in with a camera, and made to wait an hour whilst watching them allow people in ahead of us I was nearing certifiable psychotic behaviour by the time I PAID to go and shoot a favourite and deserving of more respect DJ Dexter who played a kick-ass 90 minute set.
The only thing The Manor needs is to learn some goddamn manners. Or else go and be subject to the guide of Lovers and Lobbers I mean, fuck, I’m writing a review on you dudes. Whose cock do I need to suck under a piano to get some goddamn respect in this place?!
