That’s all well and good for you, but I used to rock and roll all night and party every day. Then it was every other day. Now I’m lucky to find half an hour a week in which to get funky. I’ve got to get out of this rut and back into the groove. Don’t we all, Homer? Don’t we all?! In 2010, a bunch of dudes broke free from their rut to form Northeast Party House. Combining the exhilaration of dance music with pop hooks and rock backbone, the band struck gold with their track ‘Dusk’. Since then, fans have been hoping for something with a little more bulk. Produced by band members Sean Kenihan and Malcolm Besley (who has also put his touch on releases by Snakadaktal and The Holidays), Any Given Weekend is their debut. For the release, the band wanted to capture the thrill of their live show. Sean: “Everything has always revolved around our live show. Playing live has always been a very different experience to listening to our (recorded) music. And that’s always been the confusion with us.” The album is an ode to partying – the good, the bad and the ugly. The Workers Club, Geelong – March 21.
