Port Beach Garden Bar
Returning spectacularly to venues around Australia in 2016, End Of Fashion reunited to celebrate 10 years since the release of their much-loved debut self-titled album. They’ll be playing a one-off show under the stars at the Port Beach Garden Bar in North Fremantle, with support from Big Orange and Black River Ransom.
Cast minds back to 2006 for a second – Millions start signing up to a new social media platform called Facebook, the Beaconsfield mining disaster grips Australia, the Xbox 360 is released worldwide and aussie band, End of Fashion release an iconic self-titled debut that resonates with thousands across this great southern land and beyond.
To say the band’s debut record was successful is a massive understatement. Lead single ‘Oh Yeah’ reached number eight in the triple j Hottest 100 of 2005, sandwiched between Wolfmother and The White Stripes. ‘Oh Yeah’ also reached 21 on the ARIA Charts and cleaned up two ARIA Awards – best single & best video. Follow up singles ‘The Game’ and ‘She’s Love’ also debuted at #13 and #86 on the ARIA charts respectively. The album also featured previously released EP track ‘Rough Diamonds’ which gained a #86 spot in the 2004 triple j Hottest 100. Recorded in Oxford Missisippi withDennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello) the album peaked at number three on the ARIA Charts and ended up going gold in Australia & New Zealand.
In speaking about the reunion, frontman Justin Burford reveals he was inspired after a show in Perth earlier this year. “We did what we thought would be a special one off show at Amplifier, a venue that had a lot of meaning for us back in the day. Putting those songs back on that stage, playing with guys like Mal Clark and Jay Cortez, it all kind of felt like going home. There was such an energy in that room. It just felt good. So we thought, let’s do this again! Take it out to some of the other venues we played around the country back in the day. See if we can have that same experience in other cities we visited,”he says. “So that’s what Im excited about the most, having that connection with a crowd in a rock and roll venue again, playing songs from a very special time in my life.”
