Rockit Record Players are a Brisbane based online store specialising in retro-styled turntables, and stocking brands such as GPO, Crosley and Mbeat.

Why do you think having a dedicated Record Store Day is important? A lot of record shopping is done online now, creating a disconnect with the local scene. Record Store Day does an excellent job of bringing people together and provides a great platform for local artists and labels.
 
Will you have any new releases available on the day? Our latest offering from local Industrial/EBM...

1.  Jessie-Lee's third cousin is David Boon, the Australian cricketer most famous for downing 52 cans of beer on a flight to England in 1989. I really hope she beats this one day.
 
2.  I hate crescent moons because they look like a toenail in the sky.  I also once used rice paper and foundation to see what I would look like without eyebrows.  The conclusion was that everyone really...

TV Heads – We went down to the local recycling centre and took a few old-school TVs. We smashed out the contents on the inside and put our heads inside them. We wore them for all shows on our national tour. The sharp bits hurt, but hey, fashion is pain.

1. Every video we produce is filmed in one continuous shot. No cuts or second angles. The reasoning behind this is to give our audience a real sense of being live in the room as if they were standing right in front of the performance. It’s always about the experience and capturing the true vibe of the performance
 
2. The name Loops Live came from the fact we filmed the...

What's JimJam Collective all about? Drumming and managing Birdhouse has allowed me to learn how to book shows, tours and organise a team of people. Now I’ve decided to have a go at helping other emerging bands do the same.
 
What have you been up to with Birdhouse? Last month we created our own mini-festival, Birdfest. That was crazy fun, sharing the stage with ten bands...

Percentage Points by Dick Diver. A song that stays relevant across the entire timeline of a breakup. From “I’ll never love again” through to “I’ll quit smoking, start working out. I’m totally gonna win this breakup”. Masterful in its simplicity, with wonderfully visual lyrics that build into one of the best lines of all time: “Now you’re all backlit / stood in front of the sun/you...

Tori Amos. Her music salvaged me from those dark transient moments growing up, bringing me security and a deep connection within myself. I’ve never personally met Tori, but she’s someone intensely close to me, a mentor who has encouraged me to be open, honest and sensitive with my own writing.
 
Bjork. There’s nobody on this planet quite like Bjork. Over the decades of her...

Who is BLOODOFITO, and what is your music about? BLOODOFITO is that mother fucker down the road who keeps telling you about what real music is and all you hear pumping from his brick shithouse is the Eagles and Van Halen. Boy am I glad those soft cockers are dead. Anyway, I guess you could call it noise rock. That’s what the kiddies like to call it.

Jen Salisbury - Vocalist

Doris Day. My top musical influences come from the movies of the ‘40s and ‘50s, specifically glamour music icons like Doris Day, Fred Astaire, Louis Armstrong etc.
Frank Sinatra. I’ve always had a strong connection with musicals due to the beauty and emotion that is portrayed in song. 
 
Louis Prima. He is all about dancing, improvising and...

If you could no longer be a musician, what other occupation do you see yourself in? If I weren’t a musician I would be acting, but I imagine both would get eliminated simultaneously so I’d love to be an astrophysicist. I’m too dumb but this is just a questionnaire so I’ll say whatever I want.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication. This band was somewhat listenable in the ‘80s but this left a permanent stain on popular rock music. The video looks like a crappy Sims mod and the solo sounds like Anthony Kiedis sold John Frusciante’s fingers for smack money

In 2015, we placed third in the national final of the Emergenza global battle of the bands competition after...

New Slang. A great song by The Shins. The falsetto vocal line mixed with an almost monotone delivery sounds great live. I love its simplicity, which makes it a perfect song to play with just an acoustic guitar and vocals.
 
Razorblade.The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas is one of the greatest songwriters of the last 20 years. Razorblade is cleverly written and fun to play. The Strokes’...

What was the first song you wrote? The Loneliest Boy In The World, I wrote it with my best friend from high school Bentley Rumble. When we were lads we had a band called Holly Golightly. I still play it live although it has morphed over the years.

1. While the city has its own share of industrial smog some days, you won't find the steam clouds coming out the top of the Valley's power stations and Simpsons like cooling towers. 
 
2. Once I played a gig in Melbourne that took me three hours to get to in peak hour traffic and only 45 minutes to get home. Not so much like the traffic jams back home , where you end up stuck behind...
