AXXONN instore

AXXONN is sonic explorer Tom Hall. Combining genres as disparate as Black Metal and 80s Synth pop he melds them seamlessly to create a cacophony of sound that hits you from every angle. AXXONN recent debut LP has been held in high regards with UNCUT Magazine (UK) giving it 4 out 4 stars and calling him Australia's Fuck Buttons. In addition to this he's been compared to Aphex Twin, Nurse With Wound, Throbbing Gristle and Whitehou...se to name just a few. Taking a synth, enough outboard power to rival most metal bands and some complex 'under-hood' processing under the guise of self-made software, Hall plays it far from straight, playing and sounding like more than one guy and that's how he likes it.

In the past 2 years he's played more shows (nationally and internationally) than most bands play in 5 and with supports ranging from ISIS to Lichens and everything in between. Hall is moving indefinitely to the USA where AXXONN will soon be taking his unique breed of electro-doom to the sunset strip and beyond.

AXXONN will be playing at Tym guitars retail shop at 5E Winn street, Fortitude Valley at 6.30pm.

Husker Du - Candy Apple Grey 12"

This was Husker Du's major label debut, a move that pissed off a lot of people in the 'underground'. Then once they heard it's cleaner production, some of them must have had kittens. It might not have the urgency of albums like New Day Rising or Everything Falls Apart but there's still plenty to like about Candy Apple Grey. 

While many people may prefer their earlier, noisier work, there's no denying the brilliance of 'Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely' or the catchiness of songs like 'I Don't Know For Sure'.
We have this in stock 2nd Hand. Contact Tym Guitars for more info.

In stock now for $25. Contact Tym Guitars for more info.

Sonic Youth 12" Daydream Nation

This was released in 1988 and really was a breath of fresh air.It was their 5th studio album but somehow,  for me, was the culmination of their sound up to this point. It was ........... more punk, with great pop songs but still had that Sonic Youth "NOISE"..........

This album has Teenage Riot and Silver Rocket which really are GREAT songs and considered by some to be the pinnacle of Sonic Youths career. This is an original pressing on 2 vinyl 12's.

We have this in stock now. Contact Tym Guitars for more info.

The Sword - Warp Riders 12"

Do you dig concept albums about sci-fi themes with twin guitar metal backing???
Yeah so do I. 
On this album The Sword move away from fantasy based lyrics and get all spacey on us.
Otherwise this album continues on with The Sword's brand of stoner rock infused metal. Great drumming, massive bass, and two guitars shredding on rocking riffs and leads that'll have you playing air guitar.
If you haven't heard them give this a go....

If you dig that, give the album a whirl. In store new on vinyl for $25 (includes download card). Contact Tym Guitars for more info.
