Island Vibe 2009 Interview

Festival Review

Ah well - back on the mainland and feeling kinda flat. I'm pretty sure you need at least a week at a festival to relax properly.

Super editor Gary Wumpus and I packed up the trusty work Hyundai on the Friday, and proceeded to get the flock outta here. Rocking up to the campsite at about 8:30pm, we decide to head in and check things out before setting up camp - bad move. But at least we got to see The Nomad in action in front of a very enthusiastic crowd of earth-lovers, dropping some DnB bombs on the unwashed masses, including a wee spot Prodigy. The festival site is insane - right on the beach, very well laid out and with plenty of nooks and crannies to tuck into.

Back to the campground for some tent calisthenics, random encounters (peace Benni!) and too many beers and it was down for the night. The Saturday dawned stinking hot, with blue skies and fresh blue water to wash away the mental dregs. After a deluxe breaky, it was into the festival, and damned if it wasn't one of the easiest places to get around and have several chats with friendly randoms. Oka absolutely smashed it at the Sunshine Stage, hypnotising a packed crowd with tribal electronic groove and plenty of Sunny Coast didge layered over everything.

A quick check of Red Bantoo at the C-Side Dome showed why they're some of the finest purveyors of laidback beats getting around, but it was homeboys Afro Dizzi Act who took the cake for best vibe - the lads were shining bright that night, revelling in the atmosphere, jamming things out beautifully with Jali Buba out front. This is the perfect setting for their improvised, good-time funk, and a fine way to wrap up my first Island Vibe. It seemed to me that the meeting of randoms was a much a part of the overall vibe as the music, and I'll be back next year fo sho. Respect.
Burnt Toast


Now, I'm not going to lie here but I've been to hundreds of music events, over 50 festivals and had a helluva of good time doing it all. But by-geez, the weekend I just had at Island Vibe definitely takes the bronze medal, if not the silver step of the podium for festival-going good times (the gold still remains the domain of that mid-winter Byron festival).

Now, and this is another honest listing, I didn't see much of the event itself; The Nomad had the late Friday crowd eating out of his palm, as did Oka with the late arvo, dusk Sat. set, but what I did experience was friendliness on a scale I've never encountered before at a music festival. And I put that down in large part to the event itself and the many, many tireless organisers and workers who help run the three day carnival. Respect and love to our new friend Benni, and his posse - A French Butler Called Smith; Captain Tim - fictional name, of course - whose words you'll soon be seeing on these very pages, who accompanied us (he even slept in my swag, minus I of course) on many a mad adventure Saturday night; West End's Danger Dan who struck the deal of the century, yet made off as an even more endeared mate of ours; and lastly the countless young vixens who went topless in the surf Saturday morning - you made my day even brighter.

I could ramble on - I won't. Suffice to say, I'm sold on Island Vibe and can't wait till next year's event. Mad props Morgyn and crew.

JR & PH7 : Interview

Hip Hop Sicher Ja
Is there such a thing as German hip hop? Well there is JR & PH, whose album ‘The Standard’, harks back to the golden era of hip hop; late 80s, early 90s with its dusty beats, smooth spits and head-nodding goodness. One half of the duo JR fills us in.

Oh man, honestly, most German rap sucks nowadays. Everybody is just gangsta this gangsta that and there are just a few interesting artists to me. And those are basically the same ones for years. But then there are some people who are into some good underground stuff more in the direction our album goes, but those people mostly have little to do with German rap.

Who are the young heads listening to over there; is it a mix of what's happening in the States and the local produce?
Yeah, the young heads listen to both basically. But I doubt that a lot of kids over here check our album. They check for the new 50 single or some German stuff. The people who are into our stuff are mostly a little older, although we had a great review in Bravo Magazin (sic), the biggest mainstream pop kiddie magazine out here. Still we don't know if that’s a good or a bad thing.

Was it important to bring that classic vibe to this release?
Well, honestly that's just the music we grew up on and still listen to a lot today. We didn't really think that we had to bring back a sound or whatever. We just did what felt right.

The soul, jazz element is pretty prominent on this release; again, was it important to incorporate these sounds and flavours into the project?
To me (JR) that comes natural since I am mostly sample-based when I do music. Since a lot of tracks started on my MPC this is just how it turned out to be. We also tried to create something more timeless, a record that you can come back to and enjoy even in a couple of years or so. If we just tried to sound like the latest trend here or there in a years time I couldn't listen to it anymore probably.

The list of guest MCs on this release is ridiculous; Planet Asia, Guilty Simpson, Oddisee, Black Milk. How you manage to corner so many cats to lay down the truth on the record?
We had some connections through my work for a couple of labels and then we know a lot of promoters in Germany that helped us out, so one thing came to another. Often times after working with an artist we got new connections through that collabo as well.

‘The Standard’ is in stores now through Grindin’/ Stomp.

Doves : Interview

NOT SO RUSTY

Some four years since they last visited our shores, three-piece UK indie rockers Doves will return in July for their second stint at Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass. Their 2005 visit saw them unveil the liquid guitars and murky atmospherics of their ‘Some Cities’ LP.

Fast forward to April 2009 and the lads from Wilmslow, south of Manchester, have offered up another dose of slow-burning, incendiary guitars, with the added bonus of warped electronica sounds, on new album ‘The Kingdom Of Rust’.

“I suppose a song like ‘Jetstream’ definitely has got more of an electronica edge and proportion to it, something we’ve really never touched upon before with that kinda vibe,” comments drummer/ vocalist Andy Williams.

“They feel very new and fresh for us to do. I think each record we’ve done has had its own character and its own ... this record is definitely more rich sonically than our previous records. For us, it’s almost like a bizarre attempt at stripping things down a little, y’know?”

Four records in, the group, who started off as a dance trio known as Sub Sub in the early 90s, are still finding new ways to perform and record.

“There’s always stuff you can learn, there’s always stuff you can improve on. Each time we do a record it’s like wiping the slate clean really and going, ‘right, where are we going to go (musically) now? What can we try that’s new?’ That can be easy or it can be a difficult process. Unfortunately it was quite difficult on this record but it’s something you’ve gotta do; you’ve gotta push yourself to make new and interesting records. There’s always stuff to learn.”

Holing themselves up in a farmhouse in Cheshire to begin recording the album back 2006, Williams, twin brother Jez and Jimi Goodwin, spent close on three years crafting, scrapping, rebuilding and tinkering with the album-making process. Despite the difficulties of recording, Andy says the band never contemplated releasing a record that was half-baked.

“Y’know, I don’t think we’d ever put out a record we weren’t happy with, but the first year writing, we weren’t getting anywhere and we were like ‘is it ever going to come’, y’know? ‘Are we ever going to get anywhere on this record.’ So there was kinda a lot of doubt and a lot of - yeah doubt is the best word for the situation we were in. But I think you’ve just gotta give it time and keep plugging away at it. But I don’t think we’d ever go, ‘let’s just put the record out’, ‘cause we’d rather not put a record out if that’s the case.”

Now enjoying the fruits of their recording labours - they’ve just returned from a massive tour of America - Doves are well and truly entrenched in the live circuit once more. Something that Andy is quite thankful for.

“Really good, really enjoying it. Really enjoying playing live again. The reception to the new songs couldn’t be better. We’re playing at our best at the moment, so it’s all good at the moment ... we’ve had such a long break from playing live, it’s great to get out there again. It was such a long and difficult record to make that it’s quite cathartic really, playing live again.

“The songs have kinda morphed and changed even since we recorded the record, which I think is good to do live, so we’re not thinking about new material or anything like that yet, because we are enjoying doing this y’know?”

Doves will be joined by MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Jane’s Addiction, The Specials, Friendly Fires, Manchester Orchestra, The Gutter Twins and many others at Splendour in the Grass, Belongil Fields Byron Bay, July 25-26. ‘The Kingdom Of Rust’ is out now EMI/Virgin.

Toy Balloon

New OrderYou can thank the Roland MC-505 Groovebox for the existence of Toy Balloon. The synthesizer-cum-drum machine, along with a guitar, wasthe catalyst for Greg Cooper and Nimai Etheridge to start jamming backin 2007. Toy Balloon, who have since sprouted to a four-piece, are nowon the cusp of becoming one of Brisbane’s most-talked about acts. Greg Cooper fills us in.

The story so far for Toy Balloon, fill us in on all the blanks?
It started just as hobby more than anything during 2007. Nimai and Irehearsed once a fortnight or so for around six months, just muckingaround with a Groovebox and guitar. We were really lucky in that we hada small group of people who really dug what we were doing and asked usto play shows with them, even though we were still a work in progress.

You guys played at the Tongue n Groove late last year and your soundwas a mixture of New Order electro meets Phoenix pop sensibilities -what sorta of musical influences do you bring to the mix for ToyBalloon?
It's hard to single out influences because there are just so many, but I'm glad that you mentioned New Order. They were a band who embraced somany genres, everything from early house and electronica, hip hop, disco, soul, funk etc, and of course also have these darker punk rootswith Joy Division. The end result is this beautiful mixture of sounds,which can really only be broadly classified as 'pop' music. They arethis rare breed of band which manages to get critical acclaim andrecord sales at the same time without compromising their integrity. Youcan compare us to New Order anytime you like!

Recording-wise, what do Toy Balloon have in the cupboard for 2009?
We were extremely lucky to have Phil Laidlaw from aheadphonehome offerto record and produce an album for us. The production on his firstalbum is amazing, so the opportunity to have his creative input as wellas vast studio skills on hand was a rare opportunity we had to take.He's essentially the hidden member of Toy Balloon. He played on a fewsongs on the album, but his influence will be heard on every track. Wehave pretty much finished it. We've agonised over every little detailto try and get it sounding as good as it can sound. I think the resultswill speak for themselves, but we'll be the first to admit it hasdragged on a little longer than we intended. It should be out aroundApril/ May we hope.

You recently added a couple of members - has their presence added to the dynamic and texture of the group?
Yeah we added Ben Green (ex-Capital) on drums and my sister Chloe onkeys (also in Mr. Maps). They totally transformed us into a 'realband'. All the electronics are loop based so having the live bandaccompany them gives the sound a lot more freedom. The crowds aredefinitely responding, there's a lot more dancing these days.

You've garnered a couple of nice supports of late, in particular HolyFuck! Must be good experience to play alongside such bands and get theToy Balloon sound out to a new set of ears?
That was sort of the catalyst for getting the full band going. We knewwe had a good chance to play to people who may not otherwise come outto see us, so we knuckled down and put the album on hold for a fewmonths while we got our act together. It was such a good learningexperience for us to watch Holy Fuck! They were fantastic but also madeus realise how much work we still have to do if we want to be on theirlevel.

You've got an upcoming show at Ric's - as a Brisbane band it must be nice to play such a iconic music spot?
Raychel and the Ric's crew have been great to us over the past year anda half. The fact that it offers original live music for free entry andhas such a great reputation makes it a drawcard no matter how small thecapacity is. I remember seeing Gota Cola there as an 18 year old andI've loved it ever since. Ben DJs there occasionally too which isalways great fun.

Momma’s Boy Interview

Girls, Food And Cats

Urban Dictionary defines Momma’s Boy as one who allows his mother to control most aspects of his life; don’t, however, expect French tastemaker Momma’s Boy to be  accompanied for his upcoming, loose-as-hell DJ sets. She drinks his rider.

You landed in Brisbane on Friday. How was the flight? Very, very, very long. But I'm alive and ready to party. Do you enjoy the travel that’s associated with DJing around the world?
Of course it’s bad to complain; it's tiring to travel a lot but at the same time it's so cool and you always meet people from different cultures and it makes you learn English ... you know how (the) French are bad at it.

The photos of you on the web always feature you dressed quite sharply; do you take a keen interest in fashion?
Oh thanks :) I used to work in fashion but I realised that this world is not for me ... I really like to be well dressed, not too much, just classic. After my Australian tour I’m going straight to Japan to work on some items. I’m going to start a collaboration with Revolver. But I may focus on it more because I have some crazy ideas and drawings ready.

The type of music you'll be laying out for us Aussie punters - what can we expect from Momma's Boy?

All about groove! Mental minimal to tech-house and techno and lot of love.

The likes of DJ Hell, Sinden, Axwell, Carl Cox are all fans of your work; aside from the ego-stroking fans with that sort of rep will give you, does it add extra pressure to come through with the goods?

I was really surprised to have feedback from people like that, that's actually motivated me more to do stuff, not sure if it's added pressure because I do music for my own satisfaction first and than I share my love with the world.

When it comes to other DJs, producers, what really impresses you?
Things that impress me are DJs that are real music diggers and play tracks I don't know and producers that try to push the music on a next level!

Away from music, what else do you enjoy?
So everybody knows, I love girls, food and cats.

Momma’s Boy Plays Phunkers 5 at The Ruby Tramp on Friday September 3.

POW! POW! Interview

Secret Sounds

Lurking deep in a secret subterranean tunnel underneath Q1, two anonymous Gold Coast DJ/ production identities slave away at a new musical collaboration, their faces greasy with effort and chicken salt. They are Pow! Pow! - hear them roar!

In a saturated market, where every second punter dreams of being a DJ, how do you guys remain fresh and not another electro, house cookie-cutter DJ?

Well we don't delve down the electro path so there are no problems avoiding that mass market. We look at ourselves more as producers than DJs at this stage, we have only purposely played a handful of shows to date (supporting Claude VonStroke, Damian Lazarus & Beataucue which we were super happy about) as we want to focus on establishing ourselves and our music before starting to play regular shows. I think that this approach of establishing ourselves and what we are about before even mixing a record is perhaps what enables us to keep fresh and unique in such a saturated market.

What areas of the electronic field are currently inspiring you?

I know it sounds cliché but we are inspired by so many genres and styles of music. Variety is the spice of life for us ... production wise, we love bottom-heavy 100bpm jams just as much as we love a good rolling techno stomper. Artist wise we could go on forever, a few labels that are consistently in our case are Dirtybird, Sound Pellegrino, Extended Play, Made To Play, Murmur, Mothership, plus plenty of dope smaller labels which we would just like to keep our secret weapons for now haha. Our recent Beatport chart is a great example of our scope.

The name Pow! Pow!; please tell us you're raving mad Batman & Robin fans? And if you are, who is Batman, and who is Robin?

Batman fans we are ... believe it or not I’m actually wearing my pride and joy vintage Batman shirt today. Rather than a Batman & Robin , I think we are both pretty much the whole cast rolled into one; a little bit Batman, little bit Joker, little bit Mr Freeze ... and a whole lot of Alfred the butler, that guy was a serious cat.

What's a dream day for you in terms of your DJing, production? Is it one spent entirely in the studio creating new edits for the dancefloor?

Dream day production wise is a totally free schedule, grabbing a few beers and heading into the G.O.D. and writing music all day until the early hours of the morning, then sitting back and taking a listen, and giving each other that synonymous nod when we know we have got something special. Aspirational dream gigs would have to be Panorama Bar (Berlin), the terrace at Space or Cocoon at Amnesia and pretty much any joint worldwide with an open-minded crowd that appreciates what we do and loves a boogie.

You've had releases out on the likes of Domino and Sweat It Out. Honestly, how difficult is it to: a) create a track that grabs the interest of a label?; and: b) get them to sign you and release the song?

Anyone who is involved in this game knows just how hard it is to even get recognised let alone offered a deal with a label. We feel very privileged to date to have our work released on labels such as Institubes, Extended Play, Sound Pellegrino, Sweat It Out, Domino and more. To be successful it's a matter of all things just coming together at the right time. Most importantly we feel it's about being patient, working hard and waiting for the right opportunity to come along that suits what you do and when it does, grab it with both hands. Don't always just throw all your eggs in to the first basket so to speak.

You're headed to Wongo's Phunkers night on the Gold Coast; how should punters dress for the occasion?

Wongo is notorious for throwing one hell of a party and being the host with most. We would recommend dressing in something a little crazy, comfortable and something you are prepared to sweat heavily in, and maybe even lose by night's end. To say we are pumped to play this show is an understatement. The line up is massive .

Pow! Pow! play Phunkers at The Ruby Tramp featuring Momma’s Boy, Zare, Danny T, The Beat Mafia, Alex James and more on Friday September 3.

One Man Party Interview

Loves To Tinker

Steve Slingeneyer may not be a household name, but the band he drums for certainly is; Soulwax. When he’s not hitting skin on tour with his fellow Belgium bandmates, promoters the world over are utilising his DJing skills as the party-starter, One Man Party.

The One Man Party’s key to getting a dancefloor going off? Any secrets you care to share with Scene?
Uhm, there are always certain 'bombs' that work or dropping something insanely cheesy like the Beach Boys. But drama definitely works; setting fire to a turntable or something will liven up any crowd.

The style of music you spin; do you keep to a particular genre or do you play anything and everything?
I usually carry a lot of different music on me, but let's just say trance and minimal are not on the menu.

That said, is there a track, no matter how much pestering you get, you will never play?
I infuriated and shocked two Scottish girls once for not wanting to play David Guetta's 'Sexy Bitch'!

Drumming for Soulwax; is it crazy as the DVD ‘Part of the Weekend Never Dies’ showcases, touring with the band?
Touring, touring; it's never boring. Well, let's just say we did our fare share of touring and partying; the film is 100 percent accurate. It was definitely crazy at times, but you only realise what you've been through when you come back to your empty flat.

James Murphy was the man who coined your DJing moniker; that must be nice praise coming from a man who knows how to party hard?
It is nice. I really respect James for his wit, intelligence, humour, musical taste and talent and occasional bouts of sadness. We both come out of that whole punk, indie scene and we hate 'scenes', but just love music and good parties.

What's been the wildest party you've ever being involved in; you know, where you just have to hold on to your own coattails and ride out the craziness?
Oh, there's a couple - swinging from the rafters at the old Trash club in London; climbing the soundsystem at various 2manyDJs shows ... erm, I've calmed down a bit though.

The best party prank you've ever executed? When, where and who did you prank?
Doing an encore with Soulwax dressed in a life size tiger outfit; it was bloody hot I tell ya!

Do you like keep busy in the studio, tinkering away on new ideas?
Yes. I love tinkering. In fact I keep to a strict regimen of tinkering.

Soulwax are known for their white suits; do you keep a stack in your wardrobe ala Superman?

Luckily we have someone taking care of them. They are not so nice after a couple of shows. We have now switched to 70s styled light blue smoking suits. The blue doesn't make me sweat less though.

You're playing KClub’s 1st Birthday, on the Gold Coast, at the end of the month; what sort of party shenanigans are you packing into your kitbag for the show?
It's going to be a full on birthday surprise including balloons, foam, toy instruments and a beautiful Danish lady!

You’ve toured all over the world; surely you must be sick of collecting your baggage and queuing in customs lines?
I've learnt to pack very, very light; hand luggage only is the way to go. You lose so much stuff on the road anyway. So a week’s worth of t-shirts, undies and some soaps does nicely. I treasure my Kiehl's musk shower gel; it makes me feel sexy and fresh. Also, when you don't queue and just sit down at the gate till the very end of boarding, you don't have to wait.

One Man Party plays Kclub's 1st Birthday, at The Ruby Tramp, on the Gold Coast, Saturday January 30.

Habebe Interview 03.02.2010

Late Night Addiction


It’s fair to argue that Wal Gedeon - aka Habebe - is one of Brisbane’s most connected DJ/ producers. Aside from running DJ agency Late Night Addiction, you can catch Wal spinning regularly at any number Valley venues. He’s also partnered with Benny Electric to run their own label. He’s one busy man.

Kosha D Interview

Dub Bass

Raised in Adelaide, Kosha D’s musical upbringing was eclectic as it was rich; ska, reggae, rock, world music, even country. Then he ventured into the world of hip hop which then led, somewhat surprisingly, into the drum n bass scene. After a recent stint in the UK, the now Brisbane-based DJ is back doing what he does best, spinning quality beats.

What initially drew you in to the world of drum n bass?

As the ingredients on the packet state, initially, it was the beats and the basslines. As I delved into the DnB scene in Adelaide, I grew to know the crew that were also drawn to this sound and found that, not only in a musical sense, I had a lot in common with these people - it sealed the deal!

Do you think it's a key element for any DJ to have a diversity of influences to draw on when performing?
Without a doubt. Despite being devoted to electronic music, my favourite festival is the Blues and Roots festival down in Byron. There’s an eclectic range of music there, which is amazing. That aside, there is diversity of generations performing there. It’s one thing to see one the biggest acts in the world playing at a festival, but when you see a blues performer in their 60s, 70s or even 80s up on stage, and the love they have for music transcends generations and genres.

Did the time you spent over in London last year recharge your DJing batteries?
Yeah, in some ways. Initially it was my aim to try and get DJ work over there. I soon realised that it was going to take a lot of time and effort to get my foot in the door so I chose to be a punter for 12 months. The DnB scene is huge over there and a very different vibe to that of the underground one in Brisbane. This pretty much scared me away and pushed me to dubstep. Spending a year and a half procuring and spinning dubstep, my love for DnB has been rekindled.

The monthly Junkyard Sessions at the Step Inn; what sort of musical broth are you cookin' up with the night?
The night normally starts off with some old school hip hop, then moves into more glitchy and wobbly hip hop. Next you’ll generally hear some dubstep and then into drum n bass for the last three-four hours ... as the host I don’t place any restraints or requests on the DJs.

Kosha D plays the Step Inn December 19. He’ll be joined on the night by Mr Frost, de la Haye and Erther.

Surecut Kids Interview 18.11.2009

Twitter Fiends

They’ve been causing mayhem wherever they’ve travelled over the last couple of months, whether that be Sydney or Bali. This devilish duo know how to rock, as well as be the party. We tracked down Boozy B and Mikey Likey for a jovial chat.

The Surecut Kids; what's fresh outta the oven with you lads? Boozy B - Gigs, gigs and more gigs!!! Just been playing heaps and spending heaps of time in the Udio (we pretend that we are GZA when we say studio to keep our street cred); trying to change the face of music haha!

So someone's been whispering in our ear, but apparently Mikey has a fetish for bearded women. Any truth to the rumour mate?

Mikey Likey - Hahaha! No truth at all mate. That is a vicious rumour! It began when I offhandedly said that I’m going to start taking hormones so that I can have boobs and a beard. What’s weird about that? Nothing.

We're also told you guys ripped Bali apart recently; how was the trip? Any tales to regale us with?

Boozy B - Bali was sooo good!!! We love that place. It was suppose to be an R&R trip, but last minute we threw a gig in there too. It was a charity gig for a local children's orphanage at a bar called BlackDog. It was chaos at the start; I snapped the RCA cable as we were about to start at 11pm. I ended up jumping on the back of some local dude’s shitty motorbike and was fangin’ it through the back streets of Kuta to a house were he looked at me and said ‘Sshhh!!!’ before breaking into the house and stealing the RCA from the back of a DVD player. At that point I thought this could all go pearshaped quick. I got back to the bar in one piece, though the trip and cable costing me 50 thousand rupiahs ($6) and the show went on. People went bananas and lots of money was raised for the little kiddies.

Also, a blinged-out bird told us Mikey had to bribe his way into Bali - what was the deal there?

Mikey Likey - Yeah that was a spicy little nugget of bribery! There was a (legitimate) problem with my passport, so I had to spend some time in the little room with the Customs guys. They kept prompting me to suggest a bribe, but I was scared to in case they locked me up. I kept showing them all my passport stamps and saying "I come here every year". They just kept trying to put me on the next flight back to Brisbane, but after just stepping off the plane I was not having it. I eventually bribed them about the equivalent of $120 and they let me through. My surfboard was still sitting at the luggage carousel and Boozy B was waiting at the door with a Bintang for me. Good times!

So imagine your world as globe-trotting DJs has come crashing down and you’re now driving cabs around the Gold Coast to pay the bills; what sorta cabbie would you be?

Boozy B - If we were cabbies, we would drive around in the same cab (‘cause we're like an old married couple these days) talking shit to each other and making fun of each others insecurities, personal flaws and misshaped body parts with our five year old's sense of humour that no one finds funny except for us. That’s pretty much us now, but in a cab.

Does size matter?

Not if your gentle with me, sir.

So we lifted quote directly off your Twitter page - 'Nothin is more awkward than urinal small talk'. What's the Surecut's guide to dealing with nuisance urinal chatterboxes?

Boozy B - How exciting!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the first time a Twitter comment has come back to us; I feel like I’m Lindsay Lohan. As far as the urinal small talk goes, I just find it super creepy when people want to spark up a conversation with a total stranger while you’re forced to stand next to each other holding your ugly bits. I just stare straight ahead; no eye contact is the key to getting outta there without being emotionally scarred.

Catch the Surecut Kids at the following gigs; Swingin’ Safari November 20; Whatever Wednesdays End Of Semester Party at Uber November 25; GPO November 26; The Ruby Tramp and Swell Tavern November 27; Barsoma December 5 and every Thursday at Hazing @ The Clubhouse.
