Music Concerts


Having never heard of Backyard Surgeons before I recieved their latest EP, Totally Numb in the mail, I didn't really know what to expect. Thankfully, this Melbourne based band absolutely kicks arse. Backyard Surgeons play a brand of fast, melodic punk rock similar to A Wilhelm Scream but with a slightly more mid-90's skate punk feel. (Think Pulley).

The first thing that really made me enjoy this EP is the fact that the band manage to fit a whole bunch of things into their music: lots of different riffs, lots of tempos and a level of technicality that doesn't border on wanky, unlike a lot bands. All the while, the music doesn't sound cluttered or rushed and has a lovely cohesiveness to it.

Sometimes band's with specific lyrical agendas can be preachy and over-the-top, thus making their message less effective and almost counter-intuitive. Excellently, Backyard Surgeons don't suffer from this, opting instead to sing about a general vibe of apathy for the things that humanity should actually give a shit about. Not ramming a specific ideology down my throat made me enjoy this record even more. Enjoy tracks from this EP and more in Xi'ans Moonkey Bar. Let's rock Surgeons!
