Take To The Thigh Master In This Age Of Concern (SM's 3000th Post - And 5 Years ON)
This is a special post as it is the 3000th post we here at Sonic Masala have put on this suffering site. It is doubly sweet as today is five years exactly since I started this. And, well, it's Australia Day. So you know, woo. But on with more pertinent matters...
Brisbane silly buggers Thigh Master are brimful of energy - probably why they need that Jane Fonda exercise - as they continue to pump out releases and play copious gigs. They have supported the likes of Ty Segall, Ariel Pink and The Clean in recent months (and in the case of the latter two - yesterday), a tour of Japan, gigs with Real Estate and The Coathangers and a slot on our Sonic Masala Festival imminent, and on top of their great Head of the Witch 7", they are ramping up to release newie Songs To Wipe Your Mouth To. The title track is somewhat glossed up for these slackers, yet otherwise it's business as usual, creating a singalong chorus amidst the whirring, whining cacophony. And yes it is out on head honcho Matt Ford's Tenth Court label, which is showing no signs of slowing down either.
