Ninety9 and Hello Brisbane
I’ve been busy over at Ninety9 Notes, posting various 90s scraps that inspired my new book, Ninety9, which is out now in shops and available to order online here. The Sydney launch was held on August 14th, and saw the Midnight Special full of people listening to Mazzy Star and Belly, Mudhoney and Ride, and me wearing army boots for the first time since the 1990s. I felt uncharacteristically tough wearing them. Thanks to everyone who came to the Sydney launch, it was lots of fun.
I’ll be heading to Brisbane soon for ZICS, to launch Ninety9 on Sunday September 1st at 1pm at the ZICS venue, The Edge at Soutbank. It has been a fair while since I’ve been to Brisbane and I’m excited! There’s a zine fair over both days of ZICS and I’ll be having a table on Saturday, so come and say hello and let me know of any Brisbane city oddities I might like to explore.
In other news, I’ve been making some mixes to accompany Ninety9 at mixcloud, and I’ve written an article for Meanjin’s What I’m Reading series, about the recently published Riot Grrrl Collection. I’m writing regularly at Mirror Sydney and planning another launch for Ninety9 at this year’s TINA festival which will most probably involve lava lamps and a poster of Robert Smith.
