    Just dropped a new track, sludgy grooves from Oz

    Yo, my band Whiskey & Speed just dropped our first new track in years. Sweetness. I'm really goddamn proud of this one and how it turned out. It's the first track of our upcoming EP "Better Than Expected". A little less punk, a little more grunge. I guess? Idk, I'm stoked on it. Check it out if...

    Photos Featured Up and Down the Coast (Good Time With Good Mates)

    I love sharing photos, and there is never much going on in the Oceania section of StP so I thought I'd share some more! Ended up going up and down the East Coast of Australia (between Brisbane and Sydney) a couple of weeks back. The main aim was catching up with mates and sorting our some visa...

    A couple of weeks ago I headed up to Mt. Glorious with a mate and our furry bud. We've been up there exploring a hell of a lot of times and found some great spots, but this was the best. Our general plan is to find somewhere to park where the scrub isn't too thick and the drop isn't too steep...

    Over the past year or two a like minded mate and I have have seemingly (accidentally) created a little scene within a scene here in Pig City (Brisbane, Australia).

    Video Pig City Folk Punk - July 1st 2017

    Me and a mate decided to try and start a little folk punk collective in Brisbane, Australia. It's mainly drinking, sharing songs and jamming (on originals and covers)....essentially we get park drunk in this shitty town with acoustic guitars and noise happens. The vid is on my shitty go-pro...

    Any of you lovely creature from or around the Northern Rivers in NSW? I need a quick little escape from homebase in Brisbane and am thinking of heading down for a few days soon (maybe next week 13th-16th July). Either camping, or given the weather, finding a cheap hostel and just vegging out...

    Event Crusty Park Jams! (BNE, AU)

    While I'm yet to find any others on here from or travelling thorough Brisbane, Australia I thought I'd share this regardless (just in case!). This Friday (14/04) is a public holiday, so me and my mate Chris (from rad folk punk act Hang) think that calls for acoustic crusty park jams! Come...

    Well we're not here to fuck spiders, mate.

    Hearing about some fellow Aussie's holidaying in America using that phrase to fuck with locals have me a good giggle (hey, it's a national pastime to take the piss out of ourselves and see what we can get away with saying!). It reminded me of this photo, just to confirm cliches. Had this...

    Just going through some old photos and found some from around my city - Brisbane, Australia - that I thought I'd share. Most of these were just being on the "wrong" side of a council fence or up in old buildings. Forgive the shitty filters, these are all from a couple of years ago and I was...

    Just a few things I've stumbled upon on wandering around the back end of the Sunshine Coast (Qld, Australia). Started on an old trail, closer to suburbia than it looks Wandering through the scrub... Stumbled on an old rail tunnel, did a bit of research - it was built in the 1890's and been...

    Just thought I'd share a few photos from my wanderings around Mt Tibrogargan (Glasshouse Mountains, Queensland, Australia) back around 2014 with my mate Peta and her pup Aura.

    Featured Photos 5 months in the land down under

    In July 2016, I set off to Melbourne, Australia to study at one of the uni's there for a semester. And man, lemme tell you, it's been one heck of a ride. I was a little bit bummed out that I'd be stationary in Melbourne studying for most of my time there, but I had a pretty small course load and...
