We stock over 3000 new release & pre-loved records. We also carry a neatly curated range of turntables, headphones,  needles and advice. Yes we do do mail order; no we don't have an online store. Honestly, how many hours do you spend online already? Get your ass out the door, come have a dig and discover something new.

party guide

We play at / get invited to quite a few parties, and we share them all with you in one sweet spot :)

Even though our government is full of suburban banker Liberals and holier-than-thou Nationals, with no clue how to run a major international city other than to point at the Harbour Bridge and grin like idiots while their developer mates gentrify the soul out of block after block with nasty, cheaply built buildings, surprisingly, the creative folk who actually live in the city, still manage to get it on.
