2014 - Cobwebbs


One of the defining moments for 2014 for me was releasing WORLD WIDE WEBBS, the new album from Brisbane degenerates Cobwebbs. The four-piece have their shtick down pat - that is, an eternal garage arm-wrestle between ridiculousness and disdain, all tied up by great hooks covered in gravel rash. Sam Wightman and Roland Hlavka are the driving force of the band, and their other endeavours (Barbiturates, Police Force, Gold Shade, World War Four, etc) continue to push the sonic boundaries in myriad directions. Hanging out with Sam provided some of the best times of 2014 (most of which cannot be mentioned here). Here are their can't-fuck-withable best of list of 2014.
