Winter Moon + Doggerel + Creek + Erik Parker + The Morning Night

Winter Moon have been gigging their tight little buns off these last few months in the lead up to recording their next EP, however this will be the last gig for over a month while Lora gets her groove on in the Orient! With support from Melbourne's very own Doggerell, Creek and Erik Parker and The Chapters, it's gonna be a pretty rad night.



Music is movement. In atmosphere, reason, audience and influence, Winter Moon’s movement has seen them grow from an acoustic duo, to the funky, freaky, soulful rock revue they now command, marking their progress to date as anything but ordinary.


Summoning the gods of rock n’ roll with comparisons to Led Zeppelin and Blues Pills, then tempering it with the pop flourishes of Fleetwood Mac and the freakiness of Funkadelic, the band’s funky blues-rock squall is a force majeure.

Frequently joined by guest musicians for live shows, and renowned for their high energy non-stop live perfromance, the bands sound is topped off by the almighty soul howl of singer Milly Moon. Drawing comparisons to everyone from Aretha Franklin to Janis Joplin, Milly’s vocal prowess is the rallying cry of a band who want nothing more than to move you, and to make you move.

It’s hard to say if Doggerel is a blues act or not but, in a bastardising and non-bowdlerising kind of way, it sort of is.
There’s drums, there’s slide guitar, there’s vocals, there’s talk of drink and death and girls and there you have it – all the classic ingredients for a crude mix of 12-bar mutual commiseration. But this duo (sometimes trio) is the product of public schooling and spirited attempts at professional binge drinking - not enslavement. Doggerel respectfully acknowledge the origins of blues but continuously bend and warp the ways in which it can be presented. Sometimes it’s the influence of classical Indian slide-guitar creeping in, sometimes it’s a saxophone screaming from the Middle East and sometimes it’s just some skinny white boys trying to conjure the spirit of Howlin’ Wolf.
Doggerel play blues and unrelated genres powerfully, aggressively, and even crassly - all with the hope of making purists weep. As various venues across Melbourne have seen, it is this irreverent and jovial spirit that sees band, bar and beer-drinkers celebrating in solidarity.
