The Smith Street Band

We became aware of The Smith Street Band, and bands coming out of the punk scene in Melbourne, Australia through Iona and Great Cynics. They’d released numerous albums on Poison City, a cool record label and shop, and despite having a huge following, were doing small DIY tours of the UK, mainland Europe and the US. We really like their work ethic and it’s cool seeing them start their own label, Pool House Records, releasing work by musicians they admire like Jess Locke.
