Falls Festival knows great timing: they just released a video recording of Brick By Brick from the boys’ performance at Lorne (31 December 2011). That song just turned a year old yesterday, hey. Stay tuned for the video of the band’s entire performance.

Let me introduce you to our drummer. His name is Matthew J. Helders III,” (Matt caught on camera trying to catch a moth, hah) ”If you like him Falls, why don’t you tell him that you like him… for fucks sake? He’s another hero of mine and he’s gonna sing this next number for you...” Bless you, Turner.

Thanks to the always amazing AZ for this tip.

I’d think not. Damn, look at that.

FYI these photos were taken when the band visited Deus Ex Machina, a motorbike shop in Australia.

You wouldn’t believe it but me and Alex went surfing in Perth. I’d never done it but he kept telling me do it, so we thought `when in Rome’ … and it was amazing. Our instructor was impressed - we got up about three or four times - it has definitely been my highlight.

Miles Kane, making me think that ‘surfing’ is but a euphemism to something facepalm-worthy. What in God’s name is happening in Australia, I don’t even know. I’m just going to use this gif forever. [x]
