Thee Oh Sees off the cuff

HEADING off to Australia is no biggie for Brigid Dawson who's preparing dinner before even thinking about packing for the trip.

Dawson shares vocal duties with John Dwyer in Thee Oh Sees as well as playing tambourine and dabbling in some organ of late (only two songs, though she assures me).

The touring five-piece out of San Francisco specialise in garage-surf rock and have managed to release eight studio albums in their five years together.

"John brings in a germ of an idea, like chords and lyrics and then we each do our part," Dawson tells Pulse from her home in San Francisco.

"A lot of the time when we write we record right there and then so we're not waiting around for vocal over-dubs or anything like that."

Last year the band released an album in June, Castlemania, followed by the heavier Carrion Crawler/The Dream in November.

Influenced by The Kinks, The Monks and freewheeling jazz, expect a lot of spontaneity when they play Byron Bay.

Thee Oh Sees play at Woody's Surf Shack, Byron Bay on Tuesday, 8pm. Tickets $10 at the door.
