Lasseter's Bones

Summary: Like so many others over the years, director Luke Walker became fascinated by the story of Harold Lasseter, whose body was found after perishing in Central Australia’s deserts in 1930. Lasseter’s diary revealed he’d discovered a seven mile seam of gold, worth millions, but that he’d “give it all for a loaf of bread”.  Despite hundreds of expeditions since, the gold has never been found. In making Lasseter’s Bones Walker discovered Lasseter’s 85-year-old son Bob still wandering the desert after 50 years, on a quixotic mission to discover the gold that killed his father and destroyed his childhood.  Walker found himself teaming up with Bob Lasseter on a quest to solve the many riddles his father left behind. Walker’s journey took three years, leading him across six states and deep into the heart of Australia, and finally revealing “all the evidence you need to understand what truly happened to Lasseter and his gold.

The Trotskies

Year: 2013

Label: Independent

Track Listing:

  1. Running
  2. Vis A Vision
  3. Home
  4. Don’t Leave Me Out

Subculture Media The Trotskies: The Trotskies EP Review:

Band quite often throw out the “we sound like Joy Division” line, few ever live up to it and it very often gets a music journalists’ hopes up only then to leave them dashed on the floor after the album doesn’t live up to expectations. That however can’t be said for Melbourne five-piece The Trotskies, when these guys say their debut self titled EP sounds like Joy Division it’s a badge they can wear with pride.

What really hits you while listening to the EP is that this really is a band that separates themselves from a lot of the clichéd and cheesy pop rock that goes around. This is an album that is so good that it sounds and feels like you should be listening to back in the 70s and 80s back when bands like Joy Division were first making these sounds cool.

Opening track ‘Running’ certainly sounds like it hails from a dark run-down London apartment in the 1970s while it haunting sound certainly makes it a stand-out. ‘Vis A Vision’ is just smooth rock at its best while ‘Home’ is an absolute standout that you can’t help but listen to over-and-over. The EP closes with ‘Don’t Leave Me Out’ another great track that makes you want to message The Trotskies and say “hurry up with an album, don’t leave me hanging with a four track EP.”

This is a stunning debut from The Trotskies and it is easy to see that this is a band that we will be hearing a lot from in the future.

Here is the official statement:

From its inception in 1996 in Byron Bay, HOMEBAKE has been a staunch advocate and supporter of Australian music and of this country’s musicians.

In 1998 HOMEBAKE began its long association with the Domain as the preferred venue of choice, and for 15 years on the first Saturday in December, we came together to celebrate and support Australia’s best and brightest in music.

HOMEBAKE 2013 has proven to be a difficult beast to produce and promote due to scheduling issues with our ancestral home at the Domain. For reasons beyond our control or desire, and after a 15 year run, we were advised that for this year, the Domain had also confirmed another music festival that appealed to a similar audience and scheduled to run a mere 2 weeks before our proposed HOMEBAKE date.

Because of the commercial implications and risk of being one of two music festivals in the Domain two weeks apart, reluctantly our hand was forced to reconfigure and relocate HOMEBAKE from the usual one day event in the Domain to the Sydney Opera House over three days to celebrate HOMEBAKE’s 18th anniversary.

Over the last 4 weeks since the initial launch of HOMEBAKE 2013, it has become apparent based on the feedback from social media sites and the box office that the traditional HOMEBAKE fans have rejected this change in format from one day to three nights and the change in venue.

What is achingly ironic is the reason that forced the change in venue [and with it the format] cancelled shortly before HOMEBAKE 2013’s launch, but by then it was simply too late to revert back to our true home.

All in all, heartbreaking stuff ….

We here at HOMEBAKE HQ would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologise to the bands, to the fans, to all the hard working HOMEBAKE personnel and to our media champions and we would like to thank everyone for their input, support and contribution over the last 18 years in helping to shape HOMEBAKE as the premiere live showcase for our country’s finest musicians.

Long live Australian music and the artists that create it.
