New Music Of The Day: Terry – ‘Third War’

Featuring members of Total Control, UV Race and Dick Diver, Melbourne ‘supergroup’ Terry release their debut album ‘Terry HQ’ on July 1, via London’s great Upset The Rhythm label (No Age, Spray Paint).

Today’s New Music Of The Day, ‘Third War’, is taken from it, and recalls the monochrome realities presented by Television Personalities’ mainman Dan Treacy in its bleakness. It’s a song about violence, according to Terry’s Al Montford – “Violence on the most calculated and largest of scales”. Which sounds as heavy in print as it does on record, funnily enough:


Terry are: Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band) and Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings).
