The second and final week of the homage to the Little Bands. To start the evening off, we have a band comprising of BUM Creek's Sam Karmel, DICK Diver's Al McKay & on drums Matt COX from Pikelet....hence it is Bum, Dick & Cox.
Resurrected as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival, is the LITTLE BANDS scene, that was featured in the aussie punk classic movie "Dogs In Space" and the bonus content documentary "We're Livin' On Dog Food".
The concept was simple. With a loose collection of friends of the scene, bands were formed and played a 15 minute performances in inner city Melbourne. The most famous of these little bands were the recently reformed Primitive Calculators. Some bands played their set only once and disbanded, while other performed a handful of times. With this concept, over a period of two Thursdays night, a bunch of new bands will follow that tradition from the late 70's/early 80's.
