There’s probably a really good actual reason all the trendy punks in Auckland cruised off to Melbourne in 2011, never to return. It’s probably something tragic like craft beer and cycle paths, but I’d like to think it’s to do with an enormous electromagnet under John Farnahm’s statue imploring musical talent to flock in. That city is casting shade upon all other antipodian spots, including Christchurch (which has been doing pretty well post-quake).

Anyway, ScotDrakula are making music in Melbourne and it’s shaping up mighty fine. I heard this band via Jesse & Kieran on the 95bFM Top 10 show, which is a very 2006 way of gripping new tunes, so I guess the universe aligned to do me a favour. Check out their music on Bandcamp and you can also follow them here and here.
