The Soundwave timetable was released this week and our Facebook fans are pretty bummed about some of the clashes…


Mark Slipknot and Black Label Society. Bush and Wednesday 13. Soad Machinehead and Sisters Of Mercy… FUCKKKKKKKKK got a couple of big decisions to make!

Dear X-Press,

Alex Machine Head and System of a Down on at the same time is pretty ordinary... Nina Offs! Why would they overlap bands that they put together on sidewavesobviously they know that they got the same fans who will want to see both. Jarrod Sisters and Devin have only got 40 fucking minutes each??? Why Soundwave why? Too many other shit bands this year cut down on them and give real artists a chance to play.

Just a quick thank you to all the crew that made it down to Serial Killer Smile’s debut EP launch for The Elephant In The Room. We had a blast. Thanks a lot to Further Earth, Copious and This Other Eden for being such amazing support acts and to Big Daz for our live sound. Also thanks to the Rosemount staff and production crew for their help on the night. See you all at the next show!! \m/ Richo (Serial Killer Smile) Via Email

Kate This is going to be sick I’ve got to run from one stage to the other side of the oval to see the bands I wanna see.
