BDTD 149 blank realm live at real bad
- Ridiculously great live set from one of the jewels of the contemporary Australian underground: this is a classic Breakdance release, with Blank Realm rattling through a high energy set that combines sleazy Stooge-punk, classic moody organ-driven garage, weepy teenage balladry and totally euphoric rock/roll, all rendered in the kind of speaker-cracking fidelity that comes across like the greatest Velvet Underground bootleg of your life. Buncha ‘hits’, a raucous Alex Chilton cover and that endlessly riffing pop/punk style that is uniquely theirs. Highly recommended! - c. David Keenan 2011
