Exclusive: Stream DIEBACK, the face-smashingly great debut LP from Last Quokka
Strap yourself and feel the anarchy.
One of our all-time favourite punk outfits of recent times would have to be WA punks of anarchy, Last Quokka, and self-described as "anti-fascist, pro-feminist, queer positive proto-punk from the most isolated city on the planet" - how could you not? Over the past 18 or so months they've quickly endeared themselves to local audiences with a high-energy and rawkusly righteous live show, off the back of some killer singles and their debut, self-titled EP. Having gotten around 'em in the early days, it's with utmost pride we stream their debut album, DIEBACK, a day ahead of its official release tomorrow.
And what a rip-roaring collection of fast and furious punk-rock anthems DIEBACK is. They've got plenty on their mind, ranging from falling in love on Ningaloo reef, to blowing up letterboxes and on-point dissections of our justice system, all tightly wound across nine intense tracks. Take a listen below ahead of its release via Stock Records tomorrow, where you can grab a limited edition vinyl copy on pre-order NOW, and catch 'em live at a few upcoming shows here and over east.
