The Good Call Live Team are coming together in support of Support Act for #ausmusictshirtday … and we are doing it with a little help from our friends!
Today we’re chatting with Bass slayer, Craig Selak from Melbourne outfit, LOSER. LOSER is the project from members and ex-members of Apart From This, Grim Rhythm, The Bennies and The Smith Street Band. LOSER have come together to bring back the quintessential grunge and slacker rock sound of the 1990’s for a brand new generation with their recently expanded 5-piece ‘wall of sound’ approach.
On the back of their debut EP, ‘Restless Noise’, released over a year ago, the band have just dropped new single, Get It All Out, on Domestic La La Records, the label of James Tidswell from Brisbane legends, Violent Soho.
LOSER are going out on tour with Ruby Fields from November – January and also have a couple of interstate headline dates coming up:
Friday November 22 – Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar | Melbourne VIC (TICKETS)
Saturday November 30 – Vic On The Park | Sydney NSW (FREE SHOW)
But rest assured, they’ll be back in Queensland really soon, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming dates HERE.
Have a read of what Craig had to say about his choice of band shirt and the importance of talking about and supporting mental health in the music industry:

Tell us about your Aus Music T-Shirt:
“I am wearing a T-Shirt from the band WÜRST NÜRSE who are an incredible Nursing-themed heavy punk band out of Melbourne. Killer riffs, big drums, shredding bass and sharp lyrics about all things nursing related. They absolutely rip, so check them out HERE!”
Aus Music T-Shirt Day is a super important initiative in the Australian music industry. Why is it such an important initiative to you?
“This is an important initiative because there’s so little support for the people slogging it out in this business. It’s days like this that help get the message of support into the public consciousness – and it’s also just a great thing to rep your fave Aussie band’s T-Shirt!”
We know that mental health can slip under the radar in this business. Why is it vital to talk about your mental health?
“In my experience with mental health, it has ALWAYS been helpful to let those emotions and thoughts out of your head. Some people use their art to exorcise the demons, but others can find solace by just telling another person how they are feeling. The key is to listen without judgement and let whoever needs to vent have a safe space to do so.”
