With its lo-fi pop sound, The Lighthouse Keepers seem at odds with that prevailing aesthetic - maybe it's...

Graham Lee has devoted much of the last 12 years to acting as custodian of his former band's legacy. After the shock of David McComb's untimely death in 1999, just two weeks shy of his 37 thbirthday, Lee juggled his commitments with W.Minc. Records and various sessional gigs to oversee a painstaking effort in remastering The Triffids' classic albums.

Brisbane musical collective The Gin Club will continue their recent tradition of performing a series of shows around Christmas - only this time armed with a new live album and the return of long-time Swedish member Ola Karlsson.

So then, what's the band name and what do you 'do' in the band?


Khancoban. I sing and play the guitar.


What do you reckon people will say you sound like ?


We've been likened to Wilco, Belle and Sebastian, The Triffids, The Go-Betweens, Yo La Tengo.

Jack Ladder certainly doesn't like to make the same record twice. His third album, Hurtsville, is a far cry from the Motown swagger of second album Love Is Gone, just as the latter was a stylistic leap from the lighter, sparser Not Worth Waiting For. His shift from blues-rock to goth-rock has swung the balance between Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave further in the...
