A quick search of the "Musical Groups from Melbourne" wikipedia page reveals an incredible list that includes Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Amyl and the Sniffers, and on and on... but what about the current underground punk scene? Luckily, we've been able to gain some insight on some of the city's coolest up and coming bands with help from one tireless musician who calls Melbourne home: Billiam.
Billiam Twyford has his own lengthy list of music related projects, both as a musician and a listener. We talked with him earlier this year for this blog about his band Disco Junk. He's also a part of the stellar new trash-punk trio Tor, who put out the catchy "WIFI HEAD" single a couple months ago. ON TOP OF that and playing in like 5 other bands, Billiam also heads up the fantastic zine Magnetic Visions and summed up things in Melbourne accordingly "... theres so much going on right now its insane"
Billiam sent us this great list of Melbourne punk bands. This is easily the best city-specific punk list anyone's ever sent me, it's all good. Much love to Melbourne!
