Terry on “Hot Heads”: “Terry is packed tightly into a Volkswagen golf hurtling along the Xpressway in the rain, 5pm and the sun is already gone, just a grey haze interrupted by glowing factories and headlights. Everyone is wearing berets except the stranger in the car, he goes by Big Mac or Mr Scissors, he has laid out the plans for Terry’s trip. Sweaty backs. Clippity clop.”
Divide Terry into four and you get Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band) and Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings).
Inevitably, Terry likes to make a noise. Drums, guitars and all his voices come into play, making a solid raft for Terry’s melancholic musings to navigate the languid rapids. This all unravels at its own pace, conducting a conversation with the commonplace.
Terry HQ is the band’s debut album, out now on Upset The Rhythm. The full length is a collection of 10 of the greatest mishapen glam pop tunes Melbourne, Australia has to offer.
