The Basement, Sydney

So it’s FourPlay, back at the Basement for what is coincidentally our 11th birthday! A year ago we celebrated our 10th birthday at the Basement on the 19th of April. My 1995 diary reminds me, once again, that our first public gig was the UNSW band competition on the 27th of April, 1995, making tonight’s gig one day closer even to the “birthday”.

11 years is a long time. Far more exciting, though, for the fans and for us, is the fact that we have new releases very imminent indeed. Something may well be out by the time of this gig, and the album will be just around the corner. This is not an album launch though! Album launches around the country/planet/solar system/galaxy will be announced with appropriate fanfare. This will just be a great, great gig. Honest!

Camden Haven Music Festival

We’re playing at the Camden Haven Music Festival, mid north coast NSW – should be fun! They tend to have a wide variety of musical styles, which suits us fine.

Vanguard, Newtown, Sydney

FourPlay return to the Vanguard for a gig featuring new music that we’ve been writing for b-sides(!) and to introduce, in the home town for 3/4 of us, what will be a huge year for FourPlay. Our new album will be coming out in a few months, and there will be some very interesting releases to precede or complement it.
Book early to catch us in the wonderful intimate surrounds of the Vanguard!

Vitamin Records Turns 5 – Basement

Once upon a time, FourPlay released their first album, to much acclaim and radio airplay, and suddenly had to be distributing it. This task fell to Peter, and for a good couple of years FourPlay was entirely independently distributed.
Then a few years down the line it became too big a task for just us, and so we farmed it out to our management, and eventually Glenn Wright decided to buy the distribution list from FourPlay and form the wonderful distribution company/label Vitamin Records.

To celebrate 5 years of Vitamin, they’re putting on two gigs at the Basement in Sydney. We’re playing at the Thursday gig, along with illustrious Vitamin artists like The Millers Tale, Melanie Oxley & Chris Abrahams, Brendan Gallagher and David Lane. We’ll be on somewhere in the middle there, playing tracks from our new album.

Vanguard, Newtown, Sydney

FourPlay return to the Vanguard on Thursday the 22nd of September, to showcase our entire new album which we will then be heading up to Brisbane to record (starting on the Saturday two days later…)

This will be a must-see (and a must-hear I dare say), and it’s a pretty good idea to book early, since it’s a smallish venue and we sold out last time. $20 on the door.

42 King St, Newtown, Sydney.
