WIRE MAGAZINE [Aug. 24th, 2005|02:06 pm]

"Growing Pains is a four song classic of gal-punk, pan formalist raunch-belligerence, containing blasts of UK DIY madness, No Wave groan-huck, and Riot Grrrl note demolition."

REVIEW OF 7" FROM FASTERLOUDER.COM.AU [Aug. 10th, 2005|01:04 pm]
KIOSK
Kiosk make ugly, obnoxious noise that has few parallels in today’s music climate. If you don’t read that as a compliment then move on, you’ve nothing to see here. They lack subtlety on every front – from Jack Hammer’s B-grade girly horror squeals on much of this four track EP, past the splatter photo shoot of the cover and of course the liner notes. Musically, if you were to say that they cross Deep In The Woods era Birthday Party murder noir with the Wire-esque Pavement pop of Hit The Plane Down then you would have at least a heads up on where they might sit in your collection.That is, if you still give a fuck enough to actually put on a vinyl 7” single.

Despite living in the same town as the trio (Cat Fever on vocals/drums, Angela Fever on bass/vocals and Jack Hammer on guitar/drums/vocals), it took me a ‘business’ trip to Brisbane to be alerted to their presence via a top ten list in the local street press. Holy saints of indie rock, I was heard to mutter in genuflect; a band who namecheck the holy trinity that is Beat Happening – this is something I gotta hear. A year or so later, the debut single and the only time I have paid retail for any piece of music in about five years. Mark that one down, artschooldropout records.Growing Pains, indeed. They leave you restless and uncomfortable, lying awake at night, oft-times writhing on the bed, rubbing away at something outside your control, those damn growing pains. Perfect description, then, for the retarded mess and frustration of the tracks herein. Thankfully someone wants to shake the complacency and smugness outta the Sydney music scene. I don’t know if they are old enough to recall the first two glorious Huggy Bear singles (Her Jazz, Kiss Curl For The Kid’s Lib Guerrilla’s), I doubt it greatly, but it gives this ol’ timer a warm fuzzy thinking back to when youngsters wanted to antagonise, not harmonise. And of course they had to do it on vinyl. Just to exclude most of you shmucks; the poseurs.

Knowing full well that I will have to enter some kinda rating on this before it is uploaded let me caveat my 5 outta 5 by saying that Kiosk’s Growing Pains is the most terrifyingly horrible single in a long time. Naturally, therefore, it is also an irresponsibly insane slab of fuck you jack.Can’t wait for the next one!

Thanks to Michael for all his help in getting our 7" out!
He is amazing and we love him.

If anyone wants 7" you can email artschooldropout@hotmail.com
you can also get them from us at shows or at good record stores.

The Blood Brothers tour was amazing and our future plans include getting over to the USA as soon as possible.

No shows for a while kids...we are all really sick and need to get better.

Current Members

Jack Guitar, Drums, Vocals



Considering that Kiosk are three teenagers from Sydney who freely admit to still being in the process of learning to play their instruments properly, the splash they’ve made on local scenes is a little disproportionate. Whether it’s because some of their members still aren’t old enough to legally play over 18’s venues or because their shambolic, abrasive, noisy-punk leanings aren’t quite the usual on the indie-circuit, Kiosk have garnered more than their fair share or media/critical attention – both and good and bad. Not to be deterred Jack, Cat and Angie take it all in their stride. Whether they’re being touted as months hipster-darlings or a bunch of snotty kids with trendy hair-cuts has little effect on the band, who enjoy the music process regardless.

Drawing inspiration from bands like Huggy Bear, Pussy Galore, Free Kitten, Birthday Party, Bratmobile, Teenage Jesus + The Jerks, Beat Happening, The Slits and Lydia Lunch Kiosk play a mix of bratty primitive punk/post-punk, crafted around pounding drums, minimal instrumentation and plenty of shouting. Their live shows are high energy affairs and see the band routinely swapping instruments between songs.

They have purveyed their wares numerous times in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, playing proper gigs in venues as well as illegal shows in back-alleys and afternoon, all-ages shows in warehouses and galleries. They’ve also managed to land themselves some pretty sweet support spots with an array of local and international art-rock, electro-trash, lo-fi, experimental and twee-pop groups – think Cobra Killer, Pink Grease, Moving Units, Architecture in Helsinki, Death From Above 1979, The Unicorns, Gerling, Limited Express (has gone?), Wolfmother and Regurgitator.

2005 sees them release their long overdue 7”. Entitled ‘Growing Pains’ the record was recorded in Adelaide and is put out through Melbourne’s artschooldropout label – home to other aussie notables like Because of Ghosts, Birdblobs and Architecture in Helsinki. There are also well-laid plans for a split 7” with American group Die Monitrr Bats and a spot on the next ‘Nightschool’ compilation release from prestigious Kill Rock Stars label. Any plans of world domination may well come to fruition.

REVIEW from adelaide magazine [Jun. 29th, 2005|07:50 pm]
KIOSK
Kiosk
Growing Pains
Art School Dropout/Independent


Hey, there's no version of the theme song from 'Growing Pains' on this 7". I love that song. I loved how thick Alan Thicke's hair looked, and Tracey Gold is totally hot these days, post-eating disorder and all... OK, I'll stop. This isn't Vice Magazine.

'Growing Pains' is the debut three-song release from Sydney band Kiosk. It's as if three cave-kidz were cracked out of an ice mould, handed guitars and drumsticks and told "Make. Sounds." Despite what some people say about Jack, Cat and Ang sounding "outsider" (i.e., "shit") they can play their instruments and they can write good songs. Jack Mannix in particular is the man-force behind this scuzzy noise rock kitty. The kid is 16 but he swings his guitar, bangs his drums and wails, all the while looking sassier than most teenage girls. Meanwhile the ladies' voices turn from sexy-witch to witch-in-melting-pot, ably spewing antediluvian rhythms as they go. Kynan Lawlor (Hit The Jackpot) recorded these songs in Adelaide. Tourist Attraction is the standout pop song. The rest are more bloodshot, lusty, messed-up and black.

I'll admit the first time I heard Kiosk I thought it was a Lydia Lunch b-side, and the record's artwork echoes early Royal Trux. Extra hipster points you say? Well that ain't it! Kiosk is making grass roots music for the love of music. All-ages BYO shows, volume, wanton teen screaming/sex, community, passion pop, amyl. Sound like your thing? Of course it does.
