As if you needed more proof that joke bands have legs in this country (other than The Galvatrons, of course), The Thin Kids have been picked as main supports for Kate Nash’s upcoming Splendour In The Grass sideshows.
The new “vanity project” for music critic Everett True (“Hasn’t his whole career been a vanity project?” the cynic in you may ask) and Brisbane musicians Edward Guglielmino and Scotty Regan, The Thin Kids will play three shows with the flame-haired UK singer next month. They will perform at Melbourne’s East Brunswick Club on August 3; a sold-out show at The Corner Hotel, also in Melbourne, on August 4; and at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on August 5.
The band played their first gig at Brisbane’s The Troubadour in February; a performance we described as “in-joke that's so bad, it's good”. Here’s some footage of them playing to a bunch of disinterested skaters (courtesy Eternal Soundcheck):
