Albums Of The Week: Blowers | Blown Again

These Aussie fuckups just want to drink beer, crank their amps and blast nuggets about being a loser, aging disgracefully & how much they want you to shut up. God bless ’em.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Australia’s Blowers serve up another 14 slices of raw, lo-fi garage punk with their second LP Blown Again.

Capitalising on their triple-vocal attack, blistering guitars and fast-paced tunes, Blown Again is a tongue-in-cheek earworm of a ride, laced with sick humour and shit-stirs. The album is chock full of “fuck you” themes, with tracks like Shut The Fuck Up, Wipe My Ass, Slice ’n’ Dice and Bad 4 U that jump off the record and grab you by the throat.

Take a dive into the warped minds of Kit Convict (vox, guitar), Andrew Porter (vox, guitar), Shannon Aswell (vox, drums) and Pip McMullan (bass), who are often found in the dive bars and shitholes of Melbourne, Australia. The album was recorded in a shared warehouse space on a cold and blurred weekend, engineered and mixed by Loki Lockwood, and mastered by Mikey Young.

Blown Again follows their debut self-titled LP released to acclaim and disgust back in 2021. It’s for fans of The Spits, Jay Reatard, Wipers, Mean Jeans, Oblivians, The Cavemen, Wet Ones.

Blowers’ live shows are a blast of raw punk power. So far, they’ve shared dive bar stages with Black Lips, Cosmic Psychos, The Schizophonics, The Cavemen, Six Ft Hick, Hard-Ons, Sore Points, Mean Jeans, No Fun At All, Grindhouse, Private Function and Stiff Richards, and jumped on festivals including Munster Raving Loony Party, Do The Pop, Down South and River Rocks.”
