Premiering last week, Good Boy have shared their brand-new single ‘A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded)’.

The song spits a frustrated message about the absurd, insulting and embarrassing marriage equality plebiscite in Australia. Recorded by Cameron Smith (Dune RatsDZ Deathrays and Velociraptor) and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring / Total Control), ‘A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded)’ is whip-smart and catchy-as-hell. And it comes with a brilliant new video.

Good Boy are also heading around Australia this December. Having spent the majority of 2017 touring, lets just say they are in the best form they could possibly be in. Catch Good Boy on the below dates. Tickets available here.

 

Infused with vitriol via singer Rian King’s incendiary lyrics, the new single takes aim at Pauline Hanson and right wing politics within Australia. “Fishing With A Shotgun is a dig at the disgusting, spineless leaders that run our country, the dismal state of Australian politics and the gutless idiots too dumb and stupid to say or do anything,” says King, “It talks about the helplessness felt by thousands of young Aussies.”

It is with great pleasure that Joc Curran announces Dom Miller and Bluebeard Music will be taking over bookings at The Zoo from January 2016 and beyond. After 23 years at the helm, it is time for Joc to step back and not work quite so many hours, get to see her son during daylight hours and have dinner with her family occasionally. A positive step, we’re sure you’ll agree.

So Joc is entrusting this part of the The Zoo to the very capable hands of someone who has grown up entwined in The Zoo. From his very first show in The Rocketsmiths to assistant booker for 4 years, it is a full circle moment for Dom Miller that Joc and The Zoo feel very fortunate to be able to enact. Joc will still be at the venue of course, but with regards to booking future shows at The Zoo, Dom and his amazing staff at Bluebeard Music will be steering the ship.

“Myself and the team here at Bluebeard Music are ecstatic to be booking The Zoo as of 2016. It’s been a huge few years for us, picking up the bookings at Black Bear Lodge and The Milk Factory as well as seeing the progression of our management clients such as Good Boy, Phoncurves and Fox & Fowl. To be able to add Brisbane’s best, and possibly oldest and most respected, venue to our booking roster is an absolute honour. I am very proud.”
– Dom Miller, Bluebeard Music
