"Putting Canberra on the map"


... Lamexcuse is a Canberra punk rock force. This self titled EP contains eight tracks of mayhem. Airsearity opens up with a moody, riff-filled, deep vocal onslaught that makes me think of old Caustic Soda. Doh is a chunky, distortion rattled track with more of a punk melodic vocal than the opener. Showcasing their range this could comfortably sit inside Millencolin’s set. Searching Again is much faster paced and has a great beat. This is straight up punk rock with no holds barred; no beg your pardons. Pop punk is the essence of Airport and Get a Holden with catchy hooks at every turn. Hankerydick and I'm On It could easily be on JJJ tearing up the charts, and ending with Juggerment Day this CD is probably the best EP I've heard in years.

The ability of this band is excellent and each song is a gem. If you like Game Over, Blueline Medic or One Dollar Short, then this band is right up your alley.

"Lamexcuse killin' it!"


After a brief break from playing live, Lamexcuse returned tonight to remind us of why they are one of Canberra's most entertaining melodic punk acts. Led by a refreshingly charismatic front man, the three-piece burned through close to forty-five minutes of gritty, heartfelt punk rock that elicited a decidedly passionate response from the remaining crowd. Unfortunately tonight, the mix did not do the band any favours, as the guitars were barely audible. The band's tight, dynamic rhythm section however carried proceedings nicely, resulting in a somewhat more muscular, hard-hitting set than the band would otherwise turn in.
Tonight, Lamexcuse proved that despite their recent absence, they are still a band at the top of their game. Scariest of all is that with more constant gigging, these guys are only going to get better. - Taken from 5th Column Magazine, Sept 2005

Bio

FRESH FROM RECORDING, Lamexcuse, one of Canberra’s most established and respected bands have been busy playing constant shows anticipating the release of their latest EP ‘Why Wait’.

Lamexcuse have progressed steadily while creating a solid fanbase in their home town of Canberra promoting their previous E.P*. They have also performed in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, the South Coast and various rural areas. Their musical influences and ability have enabled them to share the stage with acts such as Strung Out (USA), Strike Anywhere (USA), Tweak (South Africa), After The Fall (AUS), Sunk Loto (AUS), The Hot Lies (AUS), Something With Numbers (AUS) and Unpaid Debt (AUS).

Lamexcuse also independently produced a video clip for a song** from their previous EP* which recieved rotation on Rage. This song** has also been recieving exposure through a recently made snowboarding DVD ‘The Code’.

Through their experiences, Lamexcuse have gained valuable knowledge and are continuously improving their musical abilities, live performance and knowledge of the Australian music scene.

Since their inception in 1998, Lamexcuse have independently released two EPs; though 2005 has seen them go back into an intensive songwriting and rehearsal regime. This has yielded a fresher, more widely accessible range of songs.

5 of these songs have been recently recorded for their latest EP titled ‘Why Wait?’, which they intend to promote through extensive networking, marketing and live performances.

With their unique sound, years of experience and still in their early 20s, Lamexcuse are set to make a huge impression on the Australian music scene.
