Time Off - 1st July 1988 page6
It's been pointed out to me these last few days that I am exhibiting a certain 'skip in my step', and a permanent " ridiculous grin". PPl are asking if I'm on the gear or summin- "NO!" I reply- I'm just REALLY FUGGIN HAPPY THAT THE TRIBESMEN ARE BACK !!!!!
I've dug up a few old press clippings I'm hoping someone of note will right click/save and pass over to the new official tribesmen web site - link here
Time Off - 4th december 1987 page7
This is the first time since 1987 that this line up has played together and if you miss it we've no idea when it will be seen again, if at all... It's guitars, it's garage, it's punk, it's pop, it's hip, it's real. It is The Screaming Tribesmen.  info from -

18 Bands... 3 Stages... 2 Bars... Good times!

Old Museum, Brisbane, QLD


The gathering festival looks like a winner to me. The manifsto page of its creator Jason Castle found here, rings a lot of bells in a kindered spirit kinda way. Reminds me a lot of the early livids that became much more than another big day out extravaganza in that it was a chance for ppl to gravatate from all over oz to meet up over a day of hand picked indy acts....  sadly later to become a mid year big day out...  nothing against BDO, but 2 of the same at the cost of the other was always a bit sad to me.
All these years later the gathering looks like it could develop into something the original livids held unique.. Good luck gathererers!!! (penciled in as the chuck2011- 100% fucking awesome award)
