Ipswich support act should be a scream

THEY'RE loud, in your face and playing the best music of their career.

Ipswich band 1:1:1 said they would be "taking it to the next level" when they perform alongside 90s sensation Screamfeeder at Studio 188.

"We've always been known as an Aussie punk rock band but we've got a different twist to our sound at the moment," guitarist Dave 'Bud' Beckett said.

"After 14 years we're changing the whole feel of our music. We've had a new line-up for about six months and we're going towards a more 80s electronica vibe.

"We'll be playing all of our new stuff and just one or two old songs.

Drummer Greg Eva is a big part of the band's new sound, with his new electronic drums opening up more possibilities for the group.

"There's a lot more scope to add in loops, fatten the sound right up and to add more effects," he said.

"You can sound like two or three people as opposed to one."

Beckett said Ipswich fans could expect to see the band at its best at the upcoming gig.

"I usually bleed at most gigs but I think we've now put that on-stage energy into our song writing and producing," he said.


"We've still got that post-punk edge and now we hope to take it to the next level."

The band will perform alongside Screamfeeder and The Roof, the Walls & Everything at Studio 188 on Friday from 7pm-9pm.

Tickets cost $10 or $14 at the door. Book tickets at studio188.com.au or phone 3810 6100.
