The Vasco Era

Posted 19 Jun 2012 @ 2:13pm

With two EP’s and three albums on the musical shelf, The Vasco Era have punctuated these recordings with nothing short of a seemingly unending touring cycle. As lovers of the stage, The Vasco Era have performed tirelessly since their inception ten years ago and a little time off is well deserved. Vocalist and guitarist (along with a splattering of other instruments) Sid O’Neill is venturing to...

Though we're not even halfway through the year, Melbourne trio The Vasco Era have announced their last shows for 2012.


Front-man Sid O'Neil will be spending the next six months or so traipsing around Europe and so the band have decided to have a send off, and will be joined by some announced special guests.
Since releasing their third album in October last year,...

So O-Week has all wrapped up and it's time to put the party-hard mindset aside and hit the books, eh? Not likely! Especially with an absolute firecracker of a lineup hitting Kindred Studios this coming Friday.



The lineup features the hottest selection of local talent, including Apollo Bay rock and rollers The Vasco Era, the ever-smooth Oscar + Martin, Beat...

I firmly believe that the Vasco Era are consummate professionals. I hear you scoffing and rolling your eyes, but hear me out (can you hear someone rolling their eyes? 


Hmmm, for the sake of this review… yes) In a day and age where indie rock bands find a blueprint, get some fans and repeat until no one cares anymore, The Vasco Era have released their third Long Player and true...

It's taken awhile, but on the heels of the release of The Vasco Era, Ted O'Neil has figured out how to keep his band effective: just have fun. "I think there are two different appreciations of the new songs: there's the lyrical side of it. There's a lot of wit in the lyrics and often they're quite funny. And the musical side: I think this album is a lot more fun than some of our other stuff....

On October 14, The Vasco Era will release a brand new, independent, self-titled album, bursting with nearly freeform metal lashings of noise that whip around the band's blues. 


To celebrate the new album, The Vasco Era and Sydney's Papa vs Pretty are joining forces this October and November for a special double-headline tour. With Papa vs Pretty's debut album United In...

Your name:

Jack Parsons.


Your band’s name:

The Pretty Littles.


What’s the deal with the band’s name:

I don’t like your tone... just a shit-hot collection of words of no relevance to anything really, that were kind of said in I Am The Walrus describing a policeman.


Define your sound in five words or less:

Bang, Slap,...

Quite possibly the greatest thing to come from Apollo Bay, besides those deep fried Mars Bars from the fish and chippery, The Vasco Era, are back.


They've announced their return to the studio and stage with a cracking new single from their forthcoming third album. The song, Child Bearing Hips, is a blistering slab of the raw, distorted, rock ‘n’ roll fans have come to expect...
