Text: Howling Bells over in the Roller Disco provided my biggest awakening of the weekend. Having passed largely under my musical radar for years it was with great pleasure that I finely caught them live. The Sydney four piece headed up by Juanita Stein had a far more balanced sound than that of the previous two bands. They played out a fantastic set that included a wonderful version of 'Setting Sun', a Country tinged 'Broken Bones' and a couple of tracks from their second album 'Radio Wars'. Firstly 'Cities Burning Down', with its revolving guitar hook and bubbling bass, and then 'Digital Hearts'. The latter was played through as a large inflatable fur ball, won at one of the amusement stalls, was thrown around above everyone's heads and at one point landed in front of the band..."can I have my ball back" came the jocular shout from the crowd. (I'm not so sure the band found it so hilarious!) They closed out with new and old. Brand new track, 'Blood On Your Lips', was followed by the brooding brilliance of a song from their first album, 'The Night Is Young'.
