QMF just got even bigger - and better!
Over 20 more acts have been added to the bill.
A line up of great depth has been announced over the weekend.
“I just love the feeling you get with busking. You can just go to street and all of a sudden there's 20 people around you. I like handing out CDs and flyers while I do it, and I tell them all about my forthcoming shows - it's a cool way of putting yourself out there.”
"We played in the middle of the race track and we had to stop the set a couple of times for the horses to run around. It was a very down-home affair but we’ve never done anything this serious."
"You know, listening to our old stuff... I don’t know, maybe it was sentimentality or maybe just a new appreciation of what we were doing before... We got to talking a lot more and it just happened out of that, I guess.”
“I can be very controlling – not in a negative way, but I know what I want a lot of the time."
"We’re so surprised on how Is This How You Feel? has been received by people."
"I think it’s very nice being the only girl in a band full of boys."
"I’ve also got a loose idea to have an instrumental project come out, like a side project thing, and plus maybe even a collaborative thing at some point, which I’ve sort of started work on but it’s a little early to talk about. There are a few things on the go."
"Our previous albums, we’ve done a lot of the production ourselves. However, we sort of wanted to open up that circle a bit wider this time and bring in some outside creativity."
"It has always been very intense; the gigs are intense, and we’re in it together and we’re bonding through this experience."
"We’ve been touring Australia for seven years with this project, and it’s a big wide world out there, man."
"The world is such an incredible place, and to see so blatantly the injustices faced by so many of our people is just completely unacceptable to me."
"Researching where to place mics, what mics to use. We wanted the record to sound like you were having that orchestral experience, sitting in a great sounding room.”
“It’s been really busy and I’m kind of exhausted but, at the same time, I like moving around all the time – it really keeps you on your toes."
"You can kind of tie in the origins of the band back to Newtown Festival and a bunch of milk crates."
“Some of what we’re talking about is just a time when we all partied at this house in that area."
“I also think it’s reciprocated by the metal bands that make themselves very accessible. There’s no one I can think of who get recognised and run away or tell people to piss off; they always hang around and chat to fans."
“Since The Bamboos started out just over ten years ago, I guess they’ve influenced most of the bands going around Melbourne – The Cat Empire and that sort of thing."
“Wigging out is a kind of transcendence. So yeah, we definitely aim for that. It’s quite addictive.”
“I know that it could all go away tomorrow. I’m not too worried, though. Like I said, I haven’t had any big single song blow-up. I’m hoping I can just keep developing and working on things, regardless."
"Yeah, I was like oh fuck now I’ve got to write lyrics to this song because it’s Paul Kelly and I can’t fuck it up."
