NOTE: Most of the above are taken from Even’s "Sweet Sixteen" show, The Hifi Bar, Melbourne, May 21, 2010 as well as "Christmas Even" shows, December 2009 & December 2010. This one's for fans who want to hear a full-length live show; the better-sounding Triple J Radio set above is intended for the curious and new fans. Special thanks to Triple J Radio, zombos, peterdaicosisgod, baudmania & Even Addict for recording & sharing.
EVEN (L-R): Wally Kempton, bassist; Matt Cotter, drummer; Ash Naylor, guitarist + lead vocalist
ROB SEZ: I love — I mean LOVE — this criminally under-appreciated Australian band. If you like classic-sounding rock with pop melodies & strong lyrics (think mid-to-late 1960s era Kinks, Beatles & The Who), you owe it to yourself to check out Even. The Ash Naylor fronted, Melbourne-based trio have been around since 1994. They're still plugging along today, without the popular recognition they richly deserve. If you like what you hear, check out all their albums, especially 1998's Come Again — which is at least nine tenths of a masterpiece. It's a shame the fans have to look so hard for decent-sounding live sets by this band. Can you hear us, Rubber Records and El Reno? If you release a good-sounding live recording by this band, people like us will buy it.
