Pikelet and Richard In Your Mind at The Gaelic Club, 25/09/10

Holy excellent. This show was so much fun, there was dancing and head-banging (:SPOD, but more on that later) and both Pikelet and RIYM sing about these fantastical fantasy worlds where space and tiny creatures prevail. Pikelet had a full band this tour - I have previously only seen her do the solo act which I might add is incredible, she creates several loops and lines them all up with each other - so this was a bit different, but I'm of the opinion that she's probably one of the best musicians in Australia (see also: drums for True Radical Miracle and Baseball). You can watch her excellent new video clip for 'Pillow Castle' here (it's a claymation by Melbourne artist Alex Machin. Sorry, I got a bit excited.).

Richard In Your Mind recently became a 5-piece, the fifth member being the ever-entertaining-SPOD. SPOD is not somebody I know but someone that you'd really want to know - mostly because he wears flat caps and Ween t-shirts and is inappropriately funny at all the right times. I'm pretty sure everybody wants to be him. That aside, surreal-psychedelic-interspersed-with-the-occasional-rap-and-tribal-beats-music with tambourines played by 5 dorks is well, just that, and mental amounts of enjoyment. The only weird thing about this show is that the stage was 5ft high and everyone felt so far away. Flashless photos.
